Hi levi ,sure it will be fine , it's only 1 day out , how much do you have left - you shouldn't need to use it after this month hopefully have faith , have a good feeling for you this month ,and if not there's always next month , haven't tried zestica yet , tried conceive plus ,dh didn't seem to mind it but then the last trime I sugested using it he wasn't too keen - said it was a bit too squishy , next time I might use it before we get down to business and see if he really notices the difference , actually should you use it a little before anyway ? sorry . answering your question with a question x x hope you get someone who can be more helpful x x

Hey hun! Yer I reckon it should be ok, I really hope so!! I'm going to sleep after bding and leaving 'it' in over night! Sorry if tmi! Hoping this will make the difference this month. Thank you for your support Hun, I'm still hoping this is your month!! How's it going? I found conceive plus and pre seed squishy too lol. ickle katie kindly sent me Zestica which I liked!! Tried it last night, much less squishy and you can just apply it in the moment which is better too. Xx

Should be fine hun , I always try to go for a wee before dtd and try to leave it in all night , but if can't manage that lay with pillow under hips for at least 20-30 mins (sorry probably way tmi ) no af yet, she's playing with me I'm sure , might have to try zestica then , have heard good things about it, so many things to try isn't there , trial n error to see what works best , got some opks for next cycle unless have a massive shock and get my bfp ,that was kind of ickle katie, do you know how she is getting on ? haven't seen her post for a while , might go off and have a look for zestica on ebay , good luck lovely x x

Aww hopefully the bitchy witch won't show for you !!! Can't see where to buy zestica did you find It? You want the spray version. Haven't heard from Katie! Hopefully she will comment soon xx

Hiya , sorry for delay hun , I just searched for zestica and it came up; not in the spray form though , I wanted to ask you a quick question too , have you tried soy isoflavines, is it similair to clomid ? just fed up never knowing if / when I ovulate & thought it might help x x

Im still here ladies! Its just been a pretty chaotic couple of weeks and tiredness has hit pretty hard - found it hard to catch up on all the posts - lol. Have my 12 week scan at the end of this month so just got everything crossed that all is ok. Have had nausea (no sickness so far thank god), tiredness, constipation, bad baby brain and in the last few days recurrent headaches. Just looking forward to knowing everything is ok as the not knowing is horrible and nerve wrecking. So its just each day as it comes.
Yay im soo pelased you like the Zestica Levi!! It seems very different to the other on the market and i thought it was great.
From what i know Zestica are/were going through rebranding which is why you may find it hard to obtain any. I found that out in May and from looking at variouis sites there still doesnt seem to be any available. It may be worth dropping zestica themselves an email to see if they have any news of when stock will be in.
Sooooo still have everything crossed for you both! If the zestica helps ill be over the moon!!! xxx

Hey ladies !!
evemum24 - I have heard of soy but I have not used it myself. I've read some great things about it. Aren't you on clomid at the moment though? Is it working for you? The best way to know when and if you are ovulating is by charting/temping. I would be in a right mess if I did not do charting I would have no idea whether I have ovulated or not! But most importantly it tells me Which day I ovulated. Hope you're okay you seem a bit fed up? Sending hugs to you xx
Hey Katie, thank you for your message very informative I will contact them but I am hoping I will not need it next month obviously!! I am still using the zestica And it says the expiry date is June so I probably shouldn't be using it now should i? Looking forward to hearing about your scan I'm sure you'll be completely fine and you'll see your little baby on the screen!! Take care of yourself and get lots sleep xxx

Hye hun, as with all expiry dates they are there to cover themselves. The lubricants are supposed to be very natural (to be sperm friendly) and so im not sure what about it could actually go off or change. I myself probably would have used it in July especially as it doesnt seem anywhere has any more stock yet.
Sooo hoping this is your month! With the zestica and baby aspirin added into the mix hoping its a winner!! When are you due to ovulate? xx

Hiya , that's what I thought too, I often use things past their expiry date, yes, bit fed up, waiting for af not to start bUt tested neg y.day, neg , but then looking back in my diary I had that random cm 18th so would be 14dpo today if that were the case, just so much waiting around , not sure about the soy , pretty sure I ov on my own , but symptoms not as strong as they used to be sometimes, thought it might make it stronger , good luck levi, don't lose heart , I was reading an article the other day that said you have to think yourself pregnant - may be something in it ? have a good day girls, good luck with scan katie x x

Thanks ladies, yer you got to keep the chin up! its hard, some days more so than others. Yer think i will still use it Just to add to the mix think i have a urine infection from sleeping with the sperm in all night!! i got it before, but needs must to get pregnant! grrrr. I got yet ANOTHER neg opk this morning grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr, cd19 already and still no o. Maybe doing days 3-7 clomid not such a good idea after all!
I have o'd later before and maybe the opk and monitor wont pick it up this month xx
