OvuQuick is a very sensitive OPK. Hard to find in ordinary drug stores, can sometimes find at clinic pharmacies, easiest to find on the internet, cheapest at americarx.com (which I have found through lots of looking and price comparison).
I know how you feel about the anger and jealousy. My partner has a clockwork 28-day cycle which would be great for conceiving as opposed to mine which is fairly random... but more so I am jealous of her breasts because I have this suspicion that she would have more success at breastfeeding than I did. Then again she has a lot of classic PCOS symptoms and PCOS mamas sometimes have difficulty breastfeeding so I may be COMPLETELY wrong.
Something that I just thought of while standing in the shower: a donor may have a pregnancy under his belt (ha, ha, sorry, really lousy pun, I swear it wasn't intentional) and it's not listed in the catalog because some clinics - like mine - only report their pregnancies back to the sperm bank once a year. Somehow they got the word, though (did i call them?! I can't remember) because they sent us a congratulations card
when we chose that donor he was new and didn't have any pregnancies listed but I got pregnant with his sperm on the first try as opposed to the previous 6 tries which were all with donors with pregnancies reported. So I say: follow your gut on a donor...
Someone wave a magic wand and make this cold go away, puh-leeze!!!
