Low fertility

This cycle I'm using the CBE Fertility Monitor. Each morning you pee on a stick, put it in the monitor and then it says whether you're at low, high, or peak fertility. A "normal" person hits high fertility by about CD10 and then peak at 14 but of course I can't be normal- especially when it comes to TTC. I'm hoping MAYBE this will just happen on its own, you know without Clomid, but I have a feeling that monitor will just keep showing low fertility...

  1. Oh how I can relate! On the cycle we finally conceived Carter I didn't get a positive OPK until CD26!! And that was on Clomid! Hang in there!

  4. I also used one of those for 5 months but the doctor that helped me finally get pregnant said it's inaccurate for women with PCOS. Or like me, I'd finally get a spike but then my body wasn't releasing the egg like I thought. Fingers crossed for you though!

  5. I've been a careful observer of my body post weaning and we have pretty well snapped back to my pre-Clomid days. I can't say I'm frustrated or even disappointed anymore. While it would have been nice to be one of those magically cured by pregnancy also, I wasn't expecting it by any means. I take it that I know we can conceive on Clomid so if we do six months and that is where we end up again...so be it. It will happen one way or another and there are no prizes for "natural" conception. It will work out Sam, don't beat yourself up cause you might need a little help. xxx
