Trying to conceive

Sorry ive not been around much, I'm trying to not think about TTC too much, except for using the CBFM. This is month one of using it and I've finally got a peak on day 15 after highs since CD9. My periods are usually about 26/27 days which would suggest a short luteal phase? Has anyone else has this? Tbh I'm just glad I got a peak, I was beginning to think it had missed it, but interested to hear experiences?

Yep sounds exactly like me. I used the CBFm first time this cycle and got 1 high on CD14 and peak on CD 15. I usually have 25-27 day cycles. I've been taking B6 to legthen my LP. I did the same when TTC P and it works. I'm 10DPO and temp is still up so it's working well enough i think. I conceived first cycle of using B6 to legthen the LP last time and used it straigh away this time, this is cycle one of trying so it'll be interesting to see how long cycles lasts if i'm not up duffed. I just used Boots own B6.

Oh that's interesting AR, I wonder if it would make any difference if I start using it now. Suppose it won't do any harm! I might give it a go. Fingers crossed you get your BFP this cycle - not tempted to poas yet??

Extremely tempted! Buti've had 3 BFPs, none before 12dpo and p's was 13dpo. SO i'm trying to hold off a couple more days!!

thats fine thougha s thats a lp of between 10 and 11 days (or assuming you may have ovd slightly later this month and af might be a bit later)
a LP of 10 days is fine and iirc they dont tend to do much supportive treatment unless its around 8 days so i think 10-16 days LP is absolutely fine.
fx for this cycle
o and get dtding till your eyes bleed over the next day or so

Aww AR, I'll be here on Thursday trying to convince you to test
CP, thanks for that, you are right its a 10-12 day lp, I may be worrying over nothing. Poor H is stressed at work, he's knackered, playing footy tonight and I'm like eh can you impregnate me before you go out please, oh and then again when you get back in, ta

Hi! Sounds pretty similar o me. First month of cbfm and got highs from day 12 and my first peak today, day 16!
Does anyone know if we DTD tonight we will still be in time? No chance this morning before work so hope the peak lasts a few hours!!
My cycles are 26-27 days too so looks like my lp is also fairly short. Will buy some b6 today just in case!
Sounds like we are at pretty similar stages of TTC!
Let's hope for lts of bfps in July!!

I believe the peak reading occurs 24-36 hrs before ovulation so tonight (and tomorrow) should be fine. I got mine yesterday morning and jumped on H yesterday evening. Then went a bit babyzilla this morning when he said he didn't have time before work, to the extent that he eventually agreed to a quickie not my proudest moment but needs must.....
So if I was you I'd do it this evening, then before bed, then tomorrow morning. Then tomorrow night. Then Friday morning just to be sure

Blooming hell don't think we'll be managing that much! Bedtime soon though!

Well after all that, only managed to DTD this morning, which is my first high day after two peaks! Tried on first peak day, but OH had performance issues, I think he felt a bit pressured! So not sure if today's will be enough as keep reading its more important to DTD on the days before the peak. If anyone has any positive stories to give me some hope though that would be great!
