Feel free to share symptoms or the lack of. Vent frustrations or let others know how to occupy your time while waiting to test. Do you test early, often or just wait for AF?

Dpo5 today and no neon signs flashing on my chart today. Did have another huge temp spike by 0.6 degrees. I am pretty sure it is from my cold. We will see what tomorrow brings. Mel

Vickie- all that I can think of is it has to be your thermometer. I know you said that you did some trouble shooting when you first noticed the flat temps. Did you change the battery and try a new thermometer? One other thing to try is to leave it inserted for a minute before you press the button. I have noticed that with my room being colder in the winter that I get better temp reproducability with my temps. Oh, could also be your thyroid, so have that checked when you see hour DR next month.

Most of us chart on Fertility Friends.com. You can chart for free or for a small fee you get some cool upgrades like searching for charts like your own. They offer a charting course for free, a forum, and chat rooms. Check it out. Mel

Thanks for the reply Mel. I knew you would have some great suggestions for me. I did get a new therm, even after replacing the battery in the other and I even check my temp after getting out of bed. I have a good increase from a single trip to the bathroom. I will try leaving it longer before pressing the button. I am on Levothyroxine for hypothyroid. I wonder if my meds need adjusting again. Thanks, I will be getting the dr to check it again.

Bec- How are you today? Hope time is going faster for you than it feels for me. I have a link to my chart in my signature. You can click on it and it shows you my current chart and the one from my last cycle. If you want to compare more charts, you can go to Fertility Friend

Hmm .. Just got the sperm analysis paperwork back .. I misunderstood my dr? I thought it was ok but it's not .. Apparently normal is 20 million per ml .. 5 million is very bad .. But we only have one hundred thousand per ml .. Anyone had any experience with this? Xx

Sorry, don't know much about sperm analysis as my RE said we didn't need one since my DH was able to "knock me up" in 2008 and 2009. Melissa posted a good link that had some good info. It sounds like you need to sit down with your DR and discuss what this means and if there is anything that you can do about his low count. I do remember reading that some drugs can drastically affect sperm counts, but that after being off the drug for 3-6 months the little swimmers can recover their numbers as new ones are being made all the time. HUGS to you.

Mel
