Little intro here, I have 2 boys, ages 5 & 4 and am 37 yrs. old. Had NO problems getting pregnant w/the 1st 2 and have charted for the last 6 yrs so I know my body well. I am hypothyroid, but that's been well under control for the last 1 1/2 yrs. My 1st appt. with an RE suggested I might be making too much prolactin still (even after having weaned 1 1/2 yrs prior, I could still squeeze milk out of my right breast) so he gave me a drug to help lower my levels. I've been taking that and it seems to have worked, as far as that goes. I did 2 rounds of Clomid and still not pregnant. I have gone to an acupuncturist for 3 or 4 sessions now.

So yesterday I decided to check my LH with a home ovulation predictor kit and it happened to be positive, even though it's really early to be ovulating for me (day 7 vs day 12 normally)? Then this mornings temperature took a dip, which it usually does right before the thermal shift. Could the acupuncture be increasing the length of my luteal phase and causing my ovulation to come early? My luteal phase was a good length before so that wasn't a problem (still haven't figured out the problem. and we've eliminated DH b/c he had an SA done and it all came back normal). Any suggestions or advice is appreciated.
