My DH and I are infertile. It's been over a year and a half. I have done some first testing for obvious things - all good. DH is going for a semen test on--Valentine's Day!! That stinks.
I just starting tracking last month and I had a perfect cycle. So at least I know I'm ovulating.
So onto month 2 tracking. My temps have been low even though I should be Ovulating soon. I thought it was my bbt so I bought another one yesterday. Still low on that one. My temps are low anyway (97.02 low, only getting as high as 97.4 after O) but I've already had 2 temps below 97. I should be Ovulating TODAY but the last few days my temps have still been low AND no sign of a positive on OPK.
My concern: On 1-27 there was BLOOD in my cervix when I was checking it. A slight line showed up on OPK only once that day, darker than the others but nowhere near positive. The blood was bright red and fresh. It wasn't a flow, just a spot of blood. Later I could still get some tan-colored cm (which wasn't EWCM consistency either - just very watery). 1-28 I spotted tan cm only once and I think it's gone now.
So I did research and read that in some rare cases, you can spot right before O and that it actually was a VERY GOOD sign of high fertility because the egg was breaking through the follicle wall, etc. So okay, then that's a great sign right.
Well my temps are still LOW and my OPK is still clearly negative. So now I am worried. If I ovulated early (on 1-27) my temps should have gone up - and they havent. If I am due to O today or tomorrow, why is my temp still so low and why is there absolutely NO line on OPK - it should be getting increasingly darker!
So I have no idea what this all means. And, i don't know if it's just in my head, but I was kind of achy down there like I was about to have AF - so that could also be ovulation cramping - so if it was, what happened?! I just stopped Ovulating!? Great, another anovulatory cycle.
It's the blood that concerns me though even if I did not ovulate (it's happened before). But why the blood?
My doctor is completely useless - i think I need another one. She is just the assistant and I can't see the real doctor and when I do go there they tell me they can't do much until they see at least 3 month of tracking! So I'm pretty lost right now.
If I don't see any changes in the next few days then I know I didn't Ovulate. Great - another month gone.
Thank you for any thoughts!
