Missed ovulation day by 2 days for a year

Postby hopeful1984 » Thu Jun 29, 2017 1:06 am

So for the past 13 months I've been ttc based on an ovulation day which is 14 days before aunt flow. I've tried using opks but it never turned positive leading me to conclude that I've missed my lh surge. One thing to note is that i'd always stop testing on the day of predicted ovulation by my app. after visiting a fertility specialist, and having some checks, I decided to continue to poas after ovulation just to make sure. I realised that my ovulation date was on cd 17. Could this be a reason why we have not conceived? We have previously stopped bding on cd 14 or 15 on all previous cycles except for the last two. And since our results came back pretty ok (except for low morphology but high counts) I'm wondering if this is why we are unable to get pregnant.

That could absolutely be the reason you haven't conceived! Did you start tracking your temperatures to confirm ovulation or are you basing your ovulation day off if opks? It could be even later because you usually ovulate 12-48 hours after a positive. I know wasting a year is frustrating but if timing is all it is that's just about the best diagnosis.

Thank you for your reply Lindsey. I certainly hope that this is the reason why we have not conceived. Because after 15 cycles, I am just clutching at straws trying to understand what is wrong with us. I do not temp but I use opks. This is what happens when I follow apps blindly.

Am about to book a HSG test and schedule IUI for the next cycle.

Yes, this could definitely be the reason! I have a 11 day luteal phase (O to AF) with 27 to 33 day cycles, so I sometimes don't O until CD 23. I'd definitely recommend temping and watching your cm closely!

Thanks for your reply Becca. I certainly hope that it the reason. Giving myself a kick for letting 1 year slip away without being more careful. I'm not sure how much more time I can give myself to ttc naturally. I feel the clock ticking away (33). Your son is adorable!
