  • If you have a positive OPK, then you might just be ovulating so you need to be doing something OTHER than being on the computer!

    It's actually not unusual to have your period change schedule a bit, especially if you've been sick or stressed at all.

  • You didn't say if you had been on hormonal birth control or not, some time is takes a minute to get out of the system, I would just keep trying, after 8 months I would start with my husband getting a sperm count, if it is normal, then after a year some insurance will pay for a fertitility specialist, but 4 months isn't too long, the more you stress the harder it will be.

  • Normal healthy couples can take as long as 18 months to conceive. Four months is nothing by comparison. A positive result on an ovulation predictor indicates to start having sex as you will ovulate in the next 24 hours. Periods will not stay regular. Age and hormones along with a long list of other things will cause your cycle to change at some point in your life.

  • Sounds like you need to get your hubby and start having fun! 4 months isn't very long just have a good time while doin it

  • If it isn't heavy flow could just be ovulation spotting. Sometimes when the egg detaches and starts to move the irritation can cause spotting or even a little heavier that may look like your period. I would just stick to your schedule and hope that this is the month. If your ovulation test says you're ovulating then get to work.
