Help! Fertility clinic MISSED ovulation

Postby BethH » Tue Mar 28, 2017 12:18 pm

Hello ladies, looking for some knowledgable ovulation consultants!!!

DH and I have been trying for our first baby since January 2016. We saw a fertility specialist and they scheduled a monitored, unmedicated cycle for me. I was really excited to learn about my cycles and find out if I ovulate and when. They just called and told me that they missed my ovulation, they are confident I ovulated but don't know when :(

A bit of background about me:
- I've had fairly regular cycles since coming off the pill: most recently every 27-29 days
- Based on OPKs I was guessing that I have been ovulating CD11-13
- I haven't been temping consistently until this cycle
- I have experienced luteal phase spotting starting anywhere from 9 - 12 DPO
- I don't have a lot of CM & I'm not sure I've ever seen EWCM

My chart with temps should be visible in my signature, but here's a link to my chart: https://www.fertilityfriend.com/home/66933f

Also here is picture of my OPKs: https://imgur.com/a/ygtNL

Here's the breakdown (also sorry, I don't have units for my labs)

CD3 - told had a good follicle count: 22 total & hormone levels were normal, lining 0.4cm
CD5 - sonohysterogram - told cavity is normal and tubes are clear
CD7 - BD'D
CD8 - did an OPK - almost positive - called clinic to ask if I could start monitoring early because I thought I was surging early, BD'd
CD9 - strongly positive OPK, beat control line - clinic called back and said just to come in CD10, BD'd
CD10 - went for ultrasound and bloods - said that they couldn't see a dominant follicle, lining is now 0.8cm, Estrogen is 249 / Progesterone 4 - they told me to come back in 2 days because they couldn't see a follicle, OPK that night looked negative, no BD that night
CD11 - sort of positive OPK, noticed sore nipples, BD'd
CD12 - sort of positive OPK, ongoing sore nipples, temp spike???
CD13 - temp still up, boobs super sore when I woke up, fertility clinic called to say that they see a corpus luteum on the R which means I ovulated sometime between the scan on CD10 and today, lining is still 0.8, Progesterone is 39 which they said is good, Estrogen is 429 which she said is fine as well.

I am bummed because I really wanted to know WHEN I ovulated. Also, because they aren't sure I can't really do Day 21 progesterone levels.

I'm also worried that I ovulated from an immature follicle.

The nurse reassured me that all of this wouldn't change what the doctor offers me & my husband for treatment.

Anyways, your input would be greatly appreciated.

I am assuming that I ovulated day 11 based on my temperatures, what do you ladies think?

Hello,based on the information you provided yes I think cd11was O day for you,now what happened and why did your clinic missed it I don't know.Either the technician didn't saw the follicle or your follie grew quickly than expected or you might have ovulated an immature egg but based on ur Estrogen I don't think that is the case.
Did the technician gave you the measurements for ur follies?that could be of great help.
Good luck!!

Thanks Danaa :)
No the technician couldn't tell me anything.
The one did the scan on CD10 was really quick, so maybe she missed something...
Either way, I know I have ovulated so now we just BD for fun and enjoy the TWW!

Just a quick update, this cycle ended up being really weird & AF came after only 21 days. The shortest I've had before was 25 but I usually go closer to 28. Danaa I'll be sure to update you to let you know what our RE says when we meet with them on Monday. I have a feeling Clomid or Femara are in our future...

I was able to review the results with my doctor today He said the person on call mis-interpreted my labs/ultrasounds. He actually says it's very likely that I ovulated before day 10.
Positive vibes that this was just a blimp and that my cycles will settle out.
I'll be going back for monitoring again this cycle.
