Trying to conceive

Hi, I am a new member but not new to TTCing... :-( been TTC for 2 years now with number two and it's really starting to get me down! Was so easy with my first but it seems like no. 2 will never happen. Been checked out and everything seems to be fine?! Decided to take pregnacare starting this month...however I am now on CD20 with no signs of ovulation?! I have a regular 28 day cycle so this seems strange! Has anyone had any bad experiences with using pregnacare? I dread hearing news from friends and family and it's not healthy :-( and I feel awful about it! been scanning forum threads for months searching for advice and thought it was about time I joined up!

hello and welcome. sorry to hear it is proving so difficult this time round. I've never heard of pregnacare having an affect like that. How are you checking for ov? everyone can have a month every now and again without ov or it could just be late this time.
Hope you don't have to hang around here long!

Hi & welcome to the TTC threads,
Sorry to hear that you're struggling with ttc no 2. I'm in my 6th cycle ttc for my 2nd. I've not had any problems with pregnacare. Are you taking any other supplements that might not be working alongside it? I didn't record any +opk last cycle so I started temping this cycle to see if there was a problem & I also stopped taking angus cactus which seemed to be stopping the Vit B from helping regulate my spotting. Take care x

Hi and welcome :)
This may not be relevant at all but prior to TTC my cycles were 34 days long but since we have started trying I have had one 61 day cycle and am now CD48 of my second cycle. I hadn't been on birth control for several years so I know it's not that, the only difference was that when we started TTC I took pregnacare.... I did the usual obsessive google searching and found that other people have had the same issue but to be honest when abusing google you can find whatever answer you want to find if you see what I mean!
Basically my sudden long cycles could either be down to pregnacare or down to over thinking and stressing about TTC, personally I think it was the pregnacare but there are a lot of people on here that use it and are absolutely fine!

Hi all, thank you for your responses. I am taking nothing other than pregnacare and only started this month (needless to say it's not down to this for the other failed 23 months of trying)... I have tried an OPK this months but it seems I maybe shouldn't have done both together :-(. I have never really understood how to do the basal body temp thing, is that easy? To be honest, I have no idea why we can't concieve...nothing has changed since my first 5 years ago. My cycle is like clockwork, 28 to the day...I think that makes it even more frustrating, and the more people say try not to think about it...the more I think about it. It's all I want...x

So frustrating for you. I found opk's useful in knowing when I ovulated. I also used them when TTC for 1. Temping itself is easier than I thought. Waking up early every morning, & putting a thermometer in my mouth & taking it out with my eyes still closed & going back to sleep. As I didn't record a +opk last month (never happened to me before) I wanted to check that I was still ovulating & charting my temp has helped reassure me of that I am. I've known friends to have a 1st easily then struggle with a second for no reason. So tracking my data gives me something concrete to give to my gp should I need to. & I know, been told to relax to, not helpful advice. Wish I had advice of my own to give but I'm sure you've tried many things in your 23 months (I feel like I have in 6 months)
