My first IUI was unsuccessful. Going to try it on my own this month. Stocking up on opks and Preseed. Anyone else starting their journey over today?

Hi!

I'm on CD2 today (Sunday). I'm trying to figure out how to have a relaxed cycle this time around because I'm going to have a lot of work-related stress. Starting cycle #4 for our first.

Yay for cycle buddies!

I forgot how much AF sucked before the mirena :(. I've had it for so long and before that was pregnant for most of the time or breastfeeding and not having a period. So I really haven't had a period since college. This is my first period since I was in college, wow.

Anyway, I feel horrible, crampy, moody, irritable, bloated, and just all around not a nice person :(

At least this means maybe my hormones are "normal" again since this is what it was like before getting pregnant the first time? Fingers crossed for that!

CD 2 today technically (Sunday). Ready for AF to be OVAH!

Hey there cycle buddies! Holy crap you're not kidding about af. She is back with a vengeance!! It was so heavy yesterday. For some reason I couldn't wear a tampon either. I put one in and it hurt. Has anyone experienced that? It was so odd! I ended up taking it out and suffered through the grossness. How many days until O???

Good morning!

I hear you on the horrors of AF, TTCBabyBoy! A big reason for me getting the Mirena was very heavy and painful periods. I had what you could call "a dry period" while on the IUD: spotting and sometimes some lighter pain. Now it's back to normal, but AF has been pretty short, only three or four days.

Southernbelle, I use menstruation cups and AF is more manageable even if it is heavy. But if you have soreness down there, the cups might be just as bad. As for your question, I seem to O between CD 10 and CD 19! So it could be in a week or two... I hate the waiting game, LOL!

Mine hasn't been as heavy as they used to be, I guess some of those mirena hormones are still there. Basically lasted the weekend and is trailing off now. I can't wear tampons most of the time actually, I usually just use a pad, gross as it is. My cervix is just really low.

I have no clue when I will ovulate, since I am so irregular due to the PCOS. I am trying to be really healthy though and eat right so hopefully I can have a normalish cycle and ovulate around CD 14. The doc is giving me 6 months to try naturally and then maybe try Clomid.

Yes!! AF is finally OVER today! How about you ladies? That was a short one for me I guess since it's only CD 4. In other news, I am taking "maca" powder every morning which is supposed to increase fertility. Well, that stuff makes me want to BD all the time. And yet I've been on my period! So I am extremely sexually frustrated right now. I was trailing off yesterday but DH was tired and didn't want to do anything. Maybe that's the reason maca makes people more fertile? Maybe it's more that it increases sex drive thus leading to more babies? IDK, I'm about to slip some of it in DH's coffee....

Hi ladies! I'm on CD3 right now so looks like we are all cycle buddies. This is also my first period in a while (just had a loss in June) so AF is pretty wonky, I suspect it will last quite a while. Hopefully I still O on time though.

TTCBabyBoy, that sounds like a great side effect to the Maca powder lol. Maybe I should take some, I have zero sex drive right now.

LOL, TTCBabyBoy! I may have to get some maca for my DH, too, then. ;)
AF is going away, only spotting today. CD4 here, too.

Nothing else much to report.

How is everyone doing?

Hi, Just! I'm so sorry about your loss. I think it's more in tune with your cycle to not want sex right now. It'll pick up, I'm sure. :)

Thank you wakasa. And I sure hope so cause we can't make a baby without it lol. So you won't be using any OPKs or temping this cycle?

That is true! :)

I am temping but not sure about the OPKs. I do have quite a lot of them, so maybe I will. If I end up having a regular 28-day cycle (and no BFP), September we'll have no luck because DH is going abroad for my fertile window. :( So maybe that will be my relaxed cycle.

I started Vitex this cycle. We'll see if it helps! I usually O around cd15-19. Oh the wait! I won't start temping until cd12 or so.
