Here I sit, it's CD 40 and still no sign of AF. I guess I should have actually tried to make use of my OPKs this month so I'd have a better idea what the heck is going on. I know I'm not preggers because I had the blood draw on CD 33 and it was a BFN. I started thinking, maybe this is because up until March I was BFing and had no AF yet. Then in May I started BCPs and completed one month of them, had the heaviest period I've ever had, then... nothing. I still don't even feel like AF is on the way. I started temping so hopefully I can get some idea what the heck my body is doing. Grrr. In other news I guess it isn't awful that it was a BFN because I was able to get my MRI done on my lower back and found out I have herniated discs that I am now doing physical therapy for. At least I am working on that because I know it gets 10x worse when I'm pregnant. Where's AF?! lol

Between BF and BCP, it sounds like your body has been through a lot recently. It could take a few months to regulate itself. What are your temps looking like right now? Though starting a chart mid cycle doesn't give you a full picture, if they are consistently high right now, you may have ovulated.

Yeah I've not got a clear picture at all based on my temps because I've only got 5--and I didn't temp on Sat or Sun. The last three have been 97.13, 97.13, and 97.15. Doesn't say much, does it? lol

Those are pretty low actually. Obviously without all the info, I can't really say, but I'd say you haven't Oed yet. I'm sorry. But, on the bright side, if that's the case, you still have a shot to catch the egg this month!

I keep tossing back and forth whether or not I should bother using my OPKs. I hate to waste them if for some ungodly reason this cycle persists for a looonnnggg time. I have no clue how long it could take.

Maybe only use an OPK if your CM is becoming fertile?
