So  my last cycle was only 24 days.  Today is the first day of my missed period (if I am regular and I don't know that I am), however, I am only 7 DPO according to fertility friend.  My DH and I didn't try really hard this month and had BD 4 days prior to my O if the chart is correct.  So, I think that 7DPO is way to early, what day can I reasonably start to test in the morning?  Advice or ideas...?

 

Oh, and usually I get a little crampy before AF, and I don't seem to be...so I am a little hopeful, but ...

I think FF is correct in its assessment of your O day, which puts your LP at just 9 days.  I know you and I have been conversing in another thread, but I forget what exactly we have already discussed.  Did you start supplementing with vitamin B6?  If so, how much?  I would recommend increasing it to 100mg if you aren't already taking that amount.  If sperm and egg did meet this past cycle there wasn't enough time for the embryo to implant.  You need at least another day in your LP to increase your chances of sustaining a pregnancy.  FX for next cycle!  The good news is that you'll get a full chart in from CD1 and that will help you to better pinpoint your fertile period and O.

You have actually helped me quite a bit. You introduced me to charting. Then suggested I take some b6 and addressed my higher than norm first temp. I talked to my obgyn yesterday and because of spotting, short lp, and low amounts of cm (none fertile) she thinks my estrogen is low and put me on estradiol. (I have been asking around for opinions on this but haven't gotten any yet. She also said to call her as soon as I know I'm pregnant to possibly go on natural progesterone. So...basically right now I'm on b6 (I am at work so later I will have to see how much and will increase it) folic acid 2mg, prenatal vitamin, and 1mg estadiol.

Thank you so much for all of your help. Your awesome lol!

Estrogen supplement? Are you still breastfeeding?

I was only able to BF for about 6 months. I am still worried about this drug and the prossible risk to fetus. I don't understand. Is it not a risk because I am not producing enough or is it a risk anyway. Any information on this supplement in relation to ttc is GREATLY appreciated.



It looks like i am taking 100mg of B6, but I just started taking it a couple of weeks ago.
