Hello! I just read everyone's introductions and although I didn't reply, I decided to start a new thread to introduce myself and ask for some guidance.
I just turned 40 this month. My DH is 35. We have been TTC for two years and five months. I've been to the Fertility Doctor and had ALL the tests. I came out with flying colors, my DH, however, came in with a low sperm count. I was even on Clomed for 3 cycles and seemed to be taking very well to the drug producing beautiful eggs. We stopped going to Fertility in November since the stress was just too much for us and when the Dr. suggested we do IVF, we both were just not ready to go there yet. In May, my DH and I had another heart to heart and decided to try again, naturally, for six months. If nothing, then return to the Dr. and do IVF.
So, in May, I bought a BBT and started charting. I got the book "Taking Charge of Your Fertility" and followed it step by step for my first cycle. According to the book, I SHOULD be pregnant right now, but alas, on the 19th, I had another visit from AF.
I would like someone to look at my chart and tell me what you think. As far as I can tell, I have a "normal" cycle. My LP seems fine and there is a distinct rise in my BBT to indicate that I did indeed O. Also, judging by my CF, we seemed to have BMS at the perfect time. . . . SO WHAT HAPPENED?
I did have a shorter than normal period at the start of this last cycle. It was light and more dark brown than red. A little unusual for me. As a rule, I have short periods, but more like 4 days where this one only lasted three and only one heavy day with two days of spotting. Could it be that I did not produce any eggs this past cycle??? That is the only think I can think of.
I'm not sure how to post my chart, but I will email to you personally if you are willing to try and solve the mystery.
Thanks for being there!
