Hi everyone!


I've been mostly in the infertility forum these days but my RE thinks we fixed the problem (abnormality in my uterus) and I have clearance to start TTCing again next cycle!


My calendar tells me that I will ovulate next month on the day I return home from a trip (without my husband). I would love to ovulate 2 days later than that to give us more time (since doesn't the sperm need like 18 hours to get up there?)


I'm wondering if anyone has any tips on how I can elongate this cycle just by a day or two? I'm currently on day 9. I usually have a 29 day cycle.

Happily married for 5 years. Tried for our first baby 6/2011, got preg right away, and miscarried. Took a 4 month break, and then had nothing but infertility & a few early miscarriages until 12/2012 when we learned I had a lumpy edge in my uterus. Doc removed it and now we are trying again....

I work with fertility as an acupuncturist and I can tell you that it takes a few months atleast to change your cycle. If you are counting down to next month to have a longer cycle I have no good advice.
