Sorry you're struggling with TTC.

I can tell you that fertility charting... temps, cervical mucus, and OPKs... really changed my life. It was only then that I realized that I had a luteal phase defect. That is, the time between ovulation and your period. Mine was only 5 days when I first started charting. And it was an "Aha!" moment. There was no physical way that I was going to get pregnant unless I was able to lengthen my LP. So I did research on ways to improve it, and it helped tremendously.

I would highly recommend that you add charting your temps and using OPKs if you really want to pinpoint ovulation. If it's something as simple as a short LP, you can fix it. If it's something more complicated, well, you'll have the charts and information you need to discuss with your doctor.

Best of luck to you. I hope you feel comfortable continuing to ask questions here and keep us posted.
