Getting Pregnant <
Trying to conceive

i lost a baby at 21 weeks in march. This was our first pregnancy. I came off my pill late September and conceived late October so it was very quick.
we have decided to try again and have just had my second month of BFN.
I know it's very early days so trying not to get too upset I just feel desperate as I'm sure most of you do.
the trouble in having is that I can't seem to work out when I'm ovulation. The opk strips always show the faintest line so in assuming these are never positive. And this month I did temping every morning and still can't seem to pinpoint it. Last month was my second proper af since march and my cycle length was 34 days which seems long for me. Before my pill I was 28 days like clockwork.
That being said if my cycles are this long I should be due af on Wednesday (22/07)
can anyone advise on the ovulation? Should I speak to my doctor? We literally dtd every other day for a month so what's going wrong?
Any advice is so welcome, sorry to go on!! xx

I'm sorry to hear of your loss...
opks will show when you get your positive, maybe your body just hasn't ovulated yet, a couple of months ago I didn't ovulate one cycle!! Or perhaps you need to test a little more often, some people test twice a day and say it helps!!
dtd every other day will cover yoursleves so as long as your ovulating your in with a chance.... Sometimes it just takes longer, for no reasons other than because!! Such a pain I know but mother nature has a funny way sometimes!!
good luck, I hope you have some luck soon

Hi Chezzad sorry you had a late loss,I lost at a little boy at 21 weeks and have no answers as to why
i went to having AF every 25 days after late loss then suffered an early mc in April. Since then Ive settled back to 28 days. It's taken from Nov 22nd until June to go back to 28 days Regular. I start testing my LH levels on day 10 and always get positive days 12, 13 & 14 normally. I buy the cheap tests in the Pound Shop you get 5 for £1. I hold off weeing from 12 until 3 each afternoon which is when I seem to get the best result. Then I use a clearblue digital to confirm and always get the smiley. You can use first morning wee for clear blue digital I believe.
so long as you bd every 2-3 days through your cycle that generally covers you just keep peeing on those test strips from after AF ends up until you get a good dark line next to the test line!
I wish u lots of luck if you're not sure post pics of your test strips and we'lol help u out!!
good luck xxx
