I also suffer with irregular cycles - although this didn't happen until after I had ds in 2010!
Mine seem to go through a few months where they are very close and then I will go and have a super long one or a super short one.
My advice would be . . . .(and you don't have to take it lol) . . . .buy a whole load of cheapy OPKs ( I use home health) and then buy a small pack of the digi OPKS. Test from CD12ish with the cheapy ones (or whenever they arrive if you start this month) and then when you think you may have a positive or be getting close - use the digi OPKS alonside as they are more accurate and a lot clearer to read. At least then you will know that AF will be due roughly 2 weeks after your smiley face.
Good luck! And you never know - this could still be your month! Keep BDing just incase!!!
Oh and after that - if you want to really crank it up a bit - you could try a CBFM. Not used one mself but heard lots of positive stories. x

After my friend had a miscarrage she had completely irregular cycles so found she could not get pregnant because she didn't know wen she was ovulating. Then she stopped worrying and just carried on as usual and just tried when she wanted too and she ended up pregnant again. Make sure your not just trying at the time when you think you should be ovulating x

Hi there, I had similar cycles to you but found I never got a proper positive on OPKs so I bought a basal body thermometer and started charting my temperatures, I found this really useful and fell pregnant the first month I did it, I am now 14+1. It turned out I was ovulating a week later than I thought and the ovulation 'symptoms' I thought I was having weren't and so were weren't trying as hard when I was actually ovulating. We also BD'd every other day throughout my whole cycle and that seemed to work! Good luck x

Would you find useful getting a tool that would enable you to save all your info like cycles, when you made ovulation tests and so on to organize yourself easily ?

I have an app on my phone which i can put in every detail and wroks out an average each cycle and roughly when i am due to ov however i get no symptonms of ov which makes it difficult to know if i am or not - maybe i am not which could be why i am getting no symptoms. Do you know another tool which would be helpful?
