I am just wondering who else has irregular cycles and how you deal with them ttc-wise?
I have only started keeping track 5 cycles ago and so far I have figured out that my average cycle is 31 days, shortest is 28, and longest being 35!
That's a pretty big gap for figuring out ovulation and such, so how do you guys do it?
Also for ladies ttc for a while, do you take any specific vitamins to help your cycle and pregnancy chances?
I started taking a women's multivitamin 2 mos ago.
Hoping to hear some answers - thank you in advance!
Mine are somewhat irregular as well and I started taking clomid this cycle.... I think taking a vitamin is good but I would recommend a prenatal; that's what most of us take when TTC. Do you know the length of your LP (luteal phase)?
Oh, okay. Well since I'm irregular the online calculator says I can ovulate anywhere from the 9-18 this next month. So how will I know when to count ? Just by cm or what? I wanted to start temping this month but I only have a digital thermometer this month so I dont know if that would do me any good lol.
Good luck with the charting! If your thermometer goes to 2 decimal places, you're good to go. If not, I'd suggest getting one that does, since it'll be more accurate when trying to figure out when you're ovulating.
And most womens multi-vitamin have a good amount of folic acid in them, so don't worry about running out and buying a new bottle before you finish your current one. (Folic acid is really the most important supplement when TTC since you want a good build up of it in your system in order to help prevent neural tube defects once you become pregnant.)
