Did I ovulate?

Postby Asinclair1988 » Wed Feb 07, 2018 3:56 am

It looks like I ovulated on CD20, then yesterday my OPK’s turned positive again? Can anybody shed some lights please x

Hmmm,have ya been taking any sumpliments or did anything out of your normal this cycle?sometimes our bodies can hear up for ovulation and not actually ovulate until later.

Thanks for reading.

No I’m not currently taking anything. This is only my second cycle temping so I wanted to see what was going on. I’ve been TTC for 30 cycles now.

I did notice last month I geared up to O then didn’t until much later in my cycle, but this cycle it looks like I have geared up twice :/

Since I came off the depo (I only had one shot that ended in September 2015) my cycles have been between 30-38 days.

Last month I had two surges and confirmed O on the second surge.

FF detected O on CD20 after entering my temp this morning but I’m unsure how reliable it is x

I am no chart expert but I would second dana, have you had your bloods tested so your day 21, progestrone etc to confirm ovulation? Two surges would encourage me to go to the dr to see what's going on. It would take the guess work out too. Good Luck!

Thanks for the response.

I forgot to mention I have seen a DR, I’ve had my hormones checked, however they were only checked at the beginning of my cycle which was odd to me. I asked for them to be taken again and my DR got a bit antsy saying they were ALL ok?

I’ve also had ultrasounds and all was ok x

Well your doctor is very unprofessional and rude as ef.
Everything is not ok considering you have not gotten pregnant in 30 cycles.
Get a second opinion,my advice.

I’m unsure what CD it was, I wasn’t booked in on a specific CD.

I’m definitely going back I just wanted to try temping and see if I was actually ovulating. I said I would give it 3 cycles then book another appointment, this is my 2nd cycle.

Can you advise me on what I should be pushing my DR for when I see her again as it’s clear I’m not ovulating regularly and I don’t want her to brush me off again x

Your dr sounds really unprofessional and downright rude what the hell she should be helping you not making you feel bad for asking for tests! I would ask for day 21 bloods to confirm O has happened and then take it from there. I don't know why she wouldn't do a day 21 blood test seeing as that's the one that confirms ovulation?! If it has happened then you can go forward with more testing, if not then at least you know what the issue is and it's an easy fix. Also has your partner had any testing done? Sometimes you habe to demand with these drs they seem to forget their duty of care to their patients sometimes. I bet if you go in and stand your ground she will be as nice as pie in no time lol. Also ask for a copy of the blood test results x

She is pretty ignorant, she’s not the worst one there either!

Ok thanks, I’ll book an appointment and ask for that.

No my partner hasn’t had any tests because he smokes. He doesn’t smoke heavily, but the DR also said that we wouldn’t be entitled to any help on the NHS if we needed procedures. X

Ohh you're in UK? Me too :)

Really he said that?! What area is this like what county? We had all our investigations on NHS too, ended up having IVF on NHS but prior to that had all the tests/meds on NHS. My dr was kind of dismissive too but in the end I got really demanding with her because its your body your future baby, who cares about these stupid NHS targets etc if you need the time then demand it from them xx

Ah yay!

I’m originally from Kent but currently live in Oldham. Glad you stood your ground! I’m going to be stubborn when I book an appointment, I just needed some kind of knowledge to back me up haha!

I’ve been carrying on with my OPK’s and I’m unsure whether this is positive? Part of the line is very dark but it’s not all the way through, what do you think? My CM is drying up as well x
