I'm CD34 following my MMC, I did a hpt on CD17 which had a faint line and again CD21 when it was negative, so my levels must have dropped between those dates. I've been doing OPKs for a week and they've all been negative (a line but nowhere near as dark as the control line). Since we started TTCing, my tell tale sign that OV has passed in all my previous cycles has been sore nipples. On Thursday I noticed I had slightly tender boobs which I still had y'day and by tonight they're noticeably sore now, although I still don't have sore nipples. I feel like OV has passed but I've had no ewcm and no positive opk. Could the sore boobs be a result of some hormone and I'm not going to OV this cycle? Does anyone know if that is common after an ERPC? Does this mean AF might arrive in 10 days or so or will there be no AF until I OV? Can a hormone change happen without an actual LH surge or an egg being released?
I'm confused and getting fed up of nothing happening! Thanks if anyone can help x

I'll be watching this with interest Miss DD as Im in the same position... except Im getting no line on my opks. Getting thoroughly peed off with waiting now!

I had a bfn on a hpt 2 weeks after my erpc and then a faint bfp a fortnight later which turned out to be false. I then got a positive opk 6 weeks after my erpc so it took a while. I think there is still some hormone floating about soon after. Have you done another hpt in case you've conceived first cycle? You might have missed ov on the opks

Mrs V, sorry I know your going through the same, the waiting for something is getting so hard!
WH thanks for that, I really appreciate your update. I'm 5 weeks on Monday since my op so guess there's still time yet if I am going to OV. I've had no EWCM either so I'm pretty sure I've not missed OV as yet but I've not taken a hpt, don't think there's any point. Even if I have OVd and missed it and its caused my sore boobs its only been two days. I've had positive OPKs every other cycle, I can't help thinking I've not ovulated. I hope you don't mind me asking but do you know what caused the positive 2 weeks after? I've been assuming that since I got a neg hpt that if I test again at any point now the result would be correct?x

No idea! Whether it was just a more sensitive test the second time than the first perhaps?
I'd do a test anyway. Things are different post mc so you might find ov symptoms are a bit different as are cycle lengths

Thanks WH, I'll do a test later today when I do my opk anyway. I don't know why but I thought my OV signs would be more obvious (no reason why I just wrongly assumed that!) I'll keep with the OPKs and see what happens x

Missdeedee, I never got a positive OPK on my last cycle, although I stopped doing them on CD22 because I went on holiday without H. . But I did a positive pregnancy test on cd33 !!! I haven't the foggiest when I OV'd. Test .....

Hey HF, how did you know roughly how many dpo you were? Did you have other signs of ov? (I remember you posting thinking you were x dpo etc when you got back, at least I think that was you!) I'm not pregnant HF, if I was I'd be getting a positive on an opk wouldn't I!? I'll stick with the OPKs this week and see if there's any progress. Hope your doing ok (I can only imagine how nervous you will be!) xx

No necessarily. Depends how sensitive they are. I got bfps and not pos opks for quite a while- maybe up to a week. Fingers crossed for you.

I was only guessing. I normally feel 'dry' down there postOV. I did a cbd which said 1-2weeks, but who knows how accurate they are.... Yeah I'm nervous but GP agreed to wend me for early scan this time to (hopefully) reassure me. I hope you OV soon!
28/04/2013 at 21:20
That's ladies, I'll go with the OPKs for the next few days and see if there's any sign of OV.
HF I'm glad your getting an early scan, I hope that all is well and you can feel at least a bit more reassured!x
