Welcome to the board, biscuitdogg! With a 25 day cycle, you might want to look at how long your luteal phase is (the number of days from after you ovulate until you get your period). Using the CBEFM will help with that, it needs to be around 12 - 14 days in order to give the egg time to implant and hormone levels to rise enough to sustain a pregnancy. There are vitamins such as B6 you can take to lengthen it, it might be something to talk with your doctor about.
