How many days of Smileys

Postby Dimples22 » Wed Jul 25, 2012 9:05 pm

Ok, I'm on cd75, bfn on several tests, dh was said to have low motility. I haven't had af, and since my calendar said I should be o'ing this week decided to do opk's. I've had 3 days of :) On clear blue opk's, last time I only 1 on cd27. My question is how many days of :) Is normal (not that my cycle seems to be, so why should me o'ing)

Hi, WOW! 75 day long cycles?! And I thought my 50 day cycles were bad enough!! Are your cycles always that long? When was AF due?? Is it possible that you have already ovulated a few weeks ago? OPK's will show positive if you are PG as well. So keep trying both tests I guess. And lots and lots of BDing just in case!!

Are you temping as well? I find that my BBT Chart is a life saver since I have long cycles as well and they are not always the same length.

I'm on cd84, according to mydays I'm 30 dpo. My longest cycle was 124 days, but I have been pretty good with 42 day cycles. Thanks, we have been bding. I had gone in for cd12 blood work and had some follicles, but not sure what's going on. I used 2 different brands for ovulation tests and both came out positive, but my hpt came out negative.

If you are not temping as well as using the calendar then it's only guessing whats normal for everyone. If you put in 42 day cycles then it will put your O day around CD28 and it has no other way to confirm if that's right for you or not. You could have O'd later or possibly not at all. I would definitely recommend that you start temping and inputting that into your calendar app as well. Then it has something else to go off and maybe you'll get a clue as to what's going on with this cycle if you start right away.

Personally I use two different charting tools. I have period tracker on my iPhone and I also have fertility friend. I prefer fertility friend for the charting stuff because its much easier to see the pattern with the larger scale than the other app has. Plus it auto calculates everything. It will use what you say is average until it has a baseline average to work with and three days after you ovulate it will pinpoint it for you and then auto adjust to when your period will really be! Very handy!!

I know it seems like everyone on here pushing bbt charting but thats because it really does help!! When we first started TTCing I didn't want to chart either and I waited a whole month wondering what the heck was going on!! Thinking that i was two weeks late when really i wasnt, my cycles were just longer than i thought. And at the end of that month I got a thermometer and started and now it all makes sense! And I feel much more in control and relaxing this month!

OK... SO I'd say its possible you ovulated on the 26th... but all your temps are sorta in the same range... like if you were to put a cover line just above the O temp your pre O temps would still have some above your cover line which normally is not what happens if you have really O'd.

Do you have any other symptoms or anything that your body always does around O time that can help you pin point O day? It's a bit unclear so far with your temps. It's possible you have O'd on the 26th but not really clear either so you may not have??

I would suggest signing up for fertility friend as well, input all your temps and see if it can pin point a pattern as well. It can be helpful to use more than one charting app. I know that I couldn't make sense of it until fertility friend pinpointed it for me and then I could clearly see the pattern.
