my DH and I have been TTC #1 for 2.5yrs. At first we just BD everyday to everyother day...nothing! then I started buying OPKs and temping well since my cycles are so long and I never know when Im going to start the OPKs were a was of money out of all I bought i never got a positive. I stopped buying them and then eventually quit temping, I started temping again a few days ago so I can get use to it again for next cycle.

me and DH have been TTC#1 for 23-24 months! We started TTC in Jan 07' in Aug 07' I received a depo shot (then DF & I were broke up for a month) so techicnally its less then 24 months but its easier to just say TTC for 24 months ugh!!! We start testing and MA in Feb I CANT WAIT!!!! Especially since I haven't O'd the last two cycles oh and we've been charting since Sept. plus BD'ing every other day when we can! Which DH is off on holiday vacation until Jan 12th! So he'll be home the whole week I should be O'ing!! So I'm praying I O this month!!

We are going onto cycle #5 ..... I just started temping this month because I used a ferility microscope and it told me I was fertile during a different time last month than from when I had ewcm, so I'm temping just to confirm that my fertile time is when I think it is - I have very regular cycles also.

In the beginning months, after I went of BCP, I used OPK's when I had ewcm and they were always positive, so I'm pretty sure I can read my body signs relatively well. I tend to lean towards something being wrong with me, but I'm sure I'm just over analyzing everything.

We're on our third month of TTC. I chart my CM and we try to DTD whenever I have EWCM. I'm going to start drinking Fertilitea next cycle if this time around didn't work.

Good luck to you - I hope 6 will be your lucky number!

We are on cycle #7, and at first I didn't do or use anything, we just BD every other day. But then as the months passed by I decided to start charting, then using OPK's, then take fertility vitamins. So this cycle I'll be using the OPK's, Pre-Seed, and pills that are called FertileCM which help having fertile cervical mucus.

If I EVER have AF (already on day 26 and absolutely no indications that she is showing anytime soon - and my last cycle was 56 days!!), then this will be our third month trying...
Am already starting to get impatient (I'm 32, and TTC#1)...

Don't think I O'ed last month...think I have hypothyroidism, going to get that looked at next week...and am also going to contact a obgyn to confirm that I'm actually Oing...

Poor DH, he's already volunteered to get a SA...cause I really want this to happen pretty fast (we want 3 kids!!)

12 months now...

I've been temping for a long time now, tried OPKs, Preseed, and very well timed BDing. I had 3 unsuccessful cycles on Clomid. This cycle I am trying EPO (Evening Primrose Oil), and all the above.

Cycle 11/ Month 14 right now... I temp and we BD every other day during fertile times.. We're dealing with MFI though so the chances of us conceiving on our own are very slim.. currently we're doing Clomid (his and hers lol) w/ a trigger shot and IUI.

Cycle #7, month #6 for us. We just BDed every other day for two cycles then I charted for two cycles. Looks like I'm ovulating like clockwork. Last cycle and this cycle I am just checking CM and not doing temps. Giving myself the gift of sanity for the holidays!

We've been trying for 18 months (19 cycles). I check my CM and temp, use opks, well timed BDing, we've been using the pre-conceive (sperm friendly lubricant) and lots of prayers and wishes!
