I'm sorry AF showed. :( Yay for your husband getting the SA done, though! When we had J's done, they told us the results would take 2-3 days, but we ended up getting the results the next day. So maybe it will be a fast turnaround for you, too! Keeping my fingers crossed for a quick answer and good results!

Thanks girls for listening! DH did the SA this morning and had it to the lab by 7:00 AM when the opened! I called my doctor and am going to ask about how long until we get the results of the SA which I've heard from others takes 2-3 days to get back. I'm going to let them know where I'm at in my cycle and see if they are willing to do the clomid this cycle or what they want to do.

Tess, I do temps and have a temp rise every cycle without fail. It is really confusing about the OPK's since I've never really gotten what I would call a positive. It's never really looked darker than the control line and the digital's were always negative this month. I've tried different times of day and never gotten a positive. I guess it really doesn't matter like you said, if I'm seeing a temp rise then I ovulated and the LH surge probably doesn't matter. I think it's a little thing that just feels like a thorn in my side in addition to ttc for a while now and then finding out I have short LP's and the frustration with DH waiting so long to do the SA. I think we are all impatient and just want BFP's and we want them right now! If only we could say we're ready and have it just happen!

FX'd that the SA comes back ok. If not, we'll deal with it and do what we can. I'm just glad that AF was fairly nice to me this month and it wasn't completely miserable.

Good luck Dina! :)

I'm sorry AF came, even if you were expecting her. How long was your lp this time? I don't know if you've ever read TCOYF, but there's a big section on opk's - basically they don't work for all women. That doesn't necessarily mean something is wrong with you, it's the limited capability of the test. So don't fret too much there.

I also like the other poster's recommendation of trying to get cloimd anyways, whether or not DH gets his SA in time for this cycle. I think that's a good suggestion. Come on Dina's DH - stop dinking around!!!

Dina, I can't remember, did you try temping?

Good luck, Dina!

Sorry for the struggle, but I hope dh cooperates soon so you can move on and move forward with some help.

I wonder if it's possible your lh surge is just so brief that you were catching part of it but never at full strength? I don't know that much about it, but I do hope you get some answers.
