Trying to conceive

Im always on the site reading everyones comments and thought I would finally come on and vent my concerns and frustration. My husband and I have decided we would like to start a family so I came off the pill in October 2014 after being on it for 8 Years! I had my usual period after coming off and then about 28 days later i took another. We at first thought let nature take its course so I never really tracked it 100%. But we really want this so I have been keeping note over the past few months and I have no idea whats going on with my body!! The past 2 months my period was every 33 days! Im now on to 36 day and nothing. I done an ovulation test last thursday which would have been my 26th day and it was positive!! What is going on! I feel terrible because I know how much my husband wants this and I feel like im letting him down. He is so supportive and encouraging but I feel bad! I dont have anyone to talk to about this so would really appreciate any help or advice.
sorry about the super long post!!

Either you ovulated late or the opk is picking up hcg so I would take a hpt and see If it's neg or pos
Good luck x
Firstly and most importantly, you aren't letting anyone down!!!! Have you taken any pregnancy tests? If AF is late, then you may well be pregnant!! If you have tested and it was negative, then wait for a few days and test again. If you got a positive ov test, I would count 14 days after when you got that and that would be when AF should arrive, if you aren't pregnant. if you get a negative pregnancy test then and still have AF maybe contact the doctors as they can do blood tests which will let you know 100% either way.
I hope you conceive soon, I'm ttc my second and have been since the end of October 2014 too but am having blood tests for progesterone levels and other problems so don't think I will get my bfp for a few more months as yet

Thank you so much for getting in touch so quickly.
I done a PT today and it was negative. Is it true that you normally ovulate 14 days before period? I think I will make an appointment with my gp for next week. Is it normal for my body to so all over the place? So confused haha!! x

Fleurstones... The doc agreed to check your progesterone then? Thats good news!
Ally... Yes in a 'normal' cycle you should ovulate around 14 days before the start of your next period (give or take a couple days is ok).... So if your periods had been every 33 days the past couple months that means on those cycles you will have ovulated around cd19.
I hope you get some good news soon!

I starting my period was I was 10 years old and once a month I would have this shooting pain in my side for a couple of days and then it would go away and a week or so later I would get my period. Jan/Feb this year I had the same pain and when I done an OVT it was positive so im assuming the pain I felt was me ovulating. I never had it this month. I was clearing out my drawer and found and OVT and just thought I would see and it was positive! Feel like my body is sending total mixed signals haha x

Yes SW2 well the first doc I saw just said got back after 1 yr of ttc if I have no luck but then I called my doc after you'd said about the luteal phase defect and she's doing full blood tests to check for everything.... Not really sure what that includes but Im guessing progesterone as that's what I wanted!! I had swabs done yesterday as they said that will have to be done of the blood tests show more needs to be done to help me get answers! I'm just taking it easy this month (well that's what I'm telling myself anyway) still using opk's but just going to not focus too much on it because I know I'm not going to fall...
yes AllyW2, my cucle was longer one month and it just happened to be the first month I used ov tests so I would count 14 days after you got the ov positive and if AF doesn't arrive and you dont get a positive pregnancy test, then call the docs!!

Oh and AllyW2, my cycle is 28 days every single month, but randomly I had one cycle that was 32 days.. I have no idea why and the last month, it was 27 days!!!! The joys of being a lady, hey!!
