Hello Ladies! So I'm about 7DPO and I just don't know what to think about this cycle...I tried temping for the first time and it was completely random with no obvious O and I used OPK but I had a few days when I couldn't test and I

I'd say just start w/ the regular temping and OPKs and see what happens (and try not to stress! lol) Oh and checking cervical mucus is also a good indicator of your fertile time!

I agree with Shigh. Temp, use the OPKs (and I def recommend the digitals), and check your cervical mucous. You should be good to go with that!

I had to change to the smiley face oPKs cuz I could never tell when they where positive so I think that is a good start also checking cervical position and mucus is a good thing to start doing as well it will help out a lot at least it did for me when we where TTC our DD. and I use it as an indication now on my fertile days because we aren't really trying trying right now. But with that and the fact that I get really bad O pains I know when I O which helps a lot when not using anything else.

I just bought a fertility clear blue monitor from eBay, much cheaper than what you pay for them in high street stores and very good for telling you your most fertile days of the month

Well honey I have your same situation. I don't know what to try next. This was my first month temping and I think I did okay. I am on CD 27 and waiting for af. Temp dropped 2 days un a road. I used the smiley opks in my first 2 cycles FTC they work great I got a smile on days I expected. So I recommend those to you. This cycle I got and started using the clearblue fertility monitor I paid like 167 plus the sticks (ouch) but after using it the first month I think is worth it bc it helped me locate ovulation for sure. Many of the reviews I read said 2nd month of using it they got preggo so I am hoping that's my case.

Ur plan for this month are goodsc opk, temping @ regular times, and lots of bd'ing ;) good luck
