Trying to Get Pregnant

discouraged, no O.

Oy Vey, Seriously, I had SUCH a 'lucky' cycle last month --- Perfect O day, nice LP. We had good timing, still a BFN, but at least everything was working properly! .... Then I only had a 3 day period, which was SUPER weird for me, but, comming of BCP, I really didn't think too much of it, until now.

I'm on CD 21- My body geared up to O, 2 days of nice EWCM, but no temp shift in sight!  .. I"m getting discouraged. *see chart*

I know I have PCOS, but I really wanted to try to control it naturally... But now that this month my body seems to be struggling, I'm wondering if I should go to the RE and get it over with and get my rear in gear.

I know I need to stop whining, we JUST started trying again. But ... I'm just feeling a little blah, and undecided if I should wait longer, or go in.

Re: discouraged, no O.

  • I know how discouraging that can be.  I O'd on my own last cycle and then this cycle, with Clomid, I did on  Why no response?  Very discouraging.

    I also have PCOS and am on Metformin.  I have O'd 4 times in the past 18 months, 2 medicated and 2 unmedicated.  Most of the 18 months I was pregnant or miscarrying, so that doesn't count.

    I know the feeling of wanting to stay natural.  I just figured that I tried to prevent a baby for so long and we are ready, so why not give us the best shot.  Waiting around for my body just doesn't seem worth it.

    Are you on Metformin?

  • When I got off BCP, I had totally "normal" 28 day cycles for the first 3 or 4 months. Things got wacky after that and I am just now getting back to normal (at least for this cycle). The wacky cycles I had, I geared up to O a few times but never did, which ended in super light & short periods. I would just give it a little time before getting too freaked out.

     Good luck to you. Hopefully you will just O late this cycle!
