Nickysy - I see in your signature you are one of the "unexplained fertility" bunch - me too! Looks like you have gone through a lot though. How are you at the moment? Where abouts in the cycle are you?

Where abouts in the world are you too? I'm UK but we come from all over in our little group

You can certainly join us, Nickysy! Welcome! As Keriberi mentioned, it has gone a little quiet over here as late, but maybe that will change now with a new member. :) Unexplained infertility sucks and I'm sorry you have to deal with it. I haven't been given that diagnosis exactly, but my doc keeps telling me there is no apparent reason that I can't get pregnant. I haven't seen an RE yet as my insurance won't cover it. I just started seeing a new acupuncturist, so we're going to see how that goes first. We're hoping it will be cheaper and more effective in the long run. It looks like you had an IUI this cycle. How many DPIUI are you and how are you feeling?

Keriberi, how are you? Your chart is looking like you haven't O'd yet. When is it that you normally O? How has your acupuncture been going?

AFM- I'm expecting AF anyone now. I was actually kind of surprised to see my temp still up this morning, but I've had several 15 day LPs recently, so I'm not getting my hopes up. The new acupuncturist I've been seeing thinks that my adrenal and thyroid are fatigued, and that my body is not absorbing nutrients from the food I eat. Because of this, my body is tapping into it's energy stores to keep things running. She thinks that is why I'm not getting pregnant--if my body is struggling to keep itself going, there is no way it can or will sustain a pregnancy. So I'm now on some supplements to address that issue (to complement the acupuncture treatments). Once my cycle starts I will be on a supplement for that, too. She looked at all my charts and thinks something is unbalanced in the estrogen stage, because my temps are really rocky during that part of my cycle. So we shall see. We have a plan, which makes me happy and I'm hopefull it will work!

Keri: Thank you. I am from India. Yup, strangely enough, even before we started ttc, there was a confusion over my diagnosis for endo or pcod. I only went to doc cuz AF got delayed one month, when normally its like a clock work. Initially i was told endo, and put on drugs for that. Then pcod and put on bc pills. All the hormones made me gain some weight as well. But all my recent tests have shown clear ovaries, clear tubes, normal hormonal levels and normal biopsies. And the doc asks me, are you sure you had endo? Scan and MRIs looked too clean. Kind of frustrating and confusing. But I am in a much better zone where I accepted, that science can def help us. I am currently cd15, which would make it 4dpiui. Actually had sandwich IUI done, so 3dp the second one.
How about you? What part of cycle are you at?

Janeite: Thank you so much. I am glad you have found a good acupuncturist. Plans always make me feel better. I have a long LP of 15 days, and its total torture! Fxed AF is planning to stay away for you for good reasons.

This time, i am having an anxiuos tww, cuz of the procedure. IUI did go well, and I didn't have too many issues. So hoping this is it.

Janeite - Your acupuncturist sounds awesome and fingers crossed she can make things happen for you in 2017. You definitely deserve it. I hope that if AF has to show herself, that she comes quickly and painlessly and that this next cycle the supplements do what they need to. Really rooting for you!

Nickysy - Wow that is a nightmare. I was also diagnosed with PCOS at 18 but now they think that may have been incorrect? The HSG I had in August was clear and blood tests apparently came back normal so I am back to simply "unexplained". I really hope that the IUI's will bring you the news you want. Thank god for science! Keeping everything crossed for you!

AFM - I am CD26 and my first cycle of temping. I haven't stuck to same time every day and I have had so many social activities to attend this month that I think drinking etc has totally thrown all my temperatures so they are completely unreliable and as you can see from my signature, FF keeps putting in crosshairs and taking them out! I am 100% sure I O'd though on CD 13 but the temps don't add up. Anyway I took a test this morning as I have been cramping for four days straight and had a BFN so I am just quietly awaiting AF and hoping she comes really soon so I can try this new cycle

On the positive side, acupuncture is going very well and my AF was lighter this cycle and if I do get it again in the next couple of days, my cycle has shortened and gone back to my regular 28/29 days so that is a plus. My next hospital appointment is on 10th March to look at my blood test more in depth. It would have been nice to give DH some nice news on Valentines Day but it wasn't to be. It has been one very long 12 cycles ttc. I hope for all of us it is not much longer

Keri- Glad your acupuncturist is helping you well. Hearing your stories, I am thinking if I should meet one. Fxing AF is planning to stay away for good. I am sure it will be a happy news, whenever you get that BFP test! Tell me about trying! I have been trying since sep 2015. But we did take lots of break months in between. So technically, i have tried for 12 cycles so far myself. And now this IUI in 13th cycle. I have just been under regular monitoring simply for my confusing diagnosis.

I tried to check the settings, can't seem to find a way of seeing the signatures on my phone. And the site won't let me log in on my laptop. I changed the password. Made a new one, and it still keeps giving me error msg.
