Hi ladies. I have started using CBopk for the first time and at CD13 still no smiley face but whenever I use other opk sticks I always get a positive on day 11! Have recently had surgery to remove endometriosis and FS has put me back on Fertomid for four months (was on it also June and July before my surgery in August) so wondering if this might have anything to do with it. Unless the other sticks have been wrong all this time?! TTC for 19 months for baby #1 so feeling super frustrated!!!
Have used 5 of the sticks already I feel like I'm gonna end up using them all this month which will be a very expensive exercise haha!!!
TTC #1 since March 2016
LAP #1 Nov 2010 (London),
LAP #2 Oct 2016 (CPT) - no endo found apparently - AWFUL gynae. Seeking second opinion
LAP #3 Aug 2017 (CPT) - 2nd opinion LAP with endo specialist - severe endo found left side & behind uterus. Removed by excision surgery
7x cycles Fertomid-Unsuccessful (June-Nov 2017, Jan-Feb 2018)
IUI #1 - March 2018 - unsuccessful
IUI #2 - July/August 2018 - unsuccessful
Praying for baby F to join us soon xxx
BF i conceived i stopped using OPK's never got a positive. Don't let that hold you back, just bd as normal or more than normal
I had a lapscope and was very fertile after the surgery, unfortunately it ended in a MC. We TTC for a couple of years and eventually got it right. Don't stress that you are not getting a smiley face, maybe try a cheaper brand (or the brand that you used before these)
Are you tracking your temp? That helped me a lot, it is tricky in the beginning but it helps you to get a better idea of when you are ovulating and when AF is coming. I used 2 thermometers one orally and one vaginally and just used a normal excel sheet to catch the data and to compare. But you can download Fertility Fried, really helpful app.
