Hey all. I'm new to ttc and wanted to introduce myself. My name is Dee, and I'm 26. My SO is 43 and we're ttc our first child together (my 1st, his 3rd). I stopped taking my bc pills in August of last year; no luck yet. I was diagnosed with pcos at 19. I'm on prenatals, calcium plus vit. D, and fish oil. No metformin. SO just takes a multivitamin. I dont temp, but will start next cycle (today is cd21). I have regular 25-28 day cycles, so I'm hoping this will help pinpoint if and when I ovulate. Any tips would be much appreciated! 😀

the temping will definetly help pin point ovulation. you can also look in to using opk's (ovulation predictor kits). they are like hpt's but for ovulation. you can get a cheap brand off amazon called wandfo for like $10 for 50 to 100 tests. you would just dip them in multiple times a day until you get a +.  When it's +, the test line will be as dark as or darker than the control line. So pay close attention to that. just because you see a line doesn't mean it's +.

Hi Rachel. I use my fertility friend to track my cycles. I might look into opks. Thanks and good luck to you!

Thanks for the advice! I think I'll look into opks.

Hugs and baby dust. Welcome!!!
Check into fertilityfriend.Com for charting, temping, checking and learning the ropes.
I suggest making appt with ob for a preconception checkup. Get both of you fertilaid also.
Check into kissesfromabove.Com also for natural fertility remedies.
We have been TTC over 4yrs and now getting ready for IUI this cycle (cd1 today or tomorrow). We have many Children but we have had 2 losses lost 3 babies. We had to go to RE to prevent anymore losses.

Thank you so much for your advice! I'm already on FF to track my cycles. I plan to start temping next cycle. I already have my bbt. PPs have mentioned opks, so I may look into them.

I am so sorry for your losses! I hope you get your bfp soon! If you don't mind me asking, do you have pcos as well? I'm trying to mentally prepare myself for a potentially long journal. Good luck this cycle! Baby dust to you! 😀
