We started TTC in April of this year, but I've had two miscarriages since (in August and in December).

I chart temps, use OPKs, and try to recognize CM!

This is cycle #3, though we really didn't try much during cycle #2 since I had just had an early miscarriage in November. I chart and we try to DTD a few times during my fertile time, but Chris has back problems and an injury on his thigh so we can't do it as much as we'd like

We started NTNP in Sept 2006. I did get pg in Feb 08 but had a m/c in April. We've been actively TTCing for 8 cycles now. I've been using OPKs and temping. We've tried pre-seed and Pre. I had the Dr. check my FSH levels in the fall as well.

I have been TTC since July 2008, technically on my 3rd cycle now, but I didn't ovulate the first 2 cycles. The first cycle ended with withdrawal bleeding and the 2nd cycle ended with progesterone. I have since been diagnosed with PCOS which I'm trying to control through diet, exercise, and Metformin. I'm also on my first cycle of Clomid to hopefully make me ovulate. Hopefully this is all it takes to make me ovulation (and get pregnant).

On to cycle #4 as soon as AF comes. First 2 months - we didn't do anything but try to BD every other day during ovulation time. Last month, I used OPKs and Sperm Meets Egg Plan. Next month, will be using OPKs, Sperm Meets Egg Plan and maybe Robitussin.

Dh and I have been trying four 4 cycles more. I do temping/charting/CM/pre-natals (when i can remember to take them), Opk's. I also started taking B-6 to increase my LP. Thank goodness i actually started all of my charting or else DH and I would have been DTD about a week earlier than i thought. I am a late ovulator.

This is our 12th month.

I chart, temp, use OPKs some cycles, and am finishing my 4th cycle with Clomid. I'm off to see a fertility specialist next month to hopefully get a new plan of action.

Thanks Jaidynsmum for another perfect siggy!!

Good luck to everyone!

DH and I decided to NTNP in Sept 2005 for 1 year then after our wedding we wanted to TTC but we were still NTNP then August 2006, We went to my OB gyn for our preconception visit. We took blood test to rule out STD, AIDS, HIV, etc but they found my liver enzymes were too high and found out I had fatty liver. Was told to lose weight. Ob gyn told us we were good to go to TTC so we started actively TTC in Sept 2006 and have been ttc since.
Last September, DH did a SA (sperm analysis) and found out he has low sperm with no motility. We were faced with IVF option but an IVF doc out of Indy encouraged us to take Vit C and E for 3 months and do a 2nd SA to see if there's any improvement. We Shall see. I know I ovulate regularly. It's so frustrating wanting to have a baby over 3 years and no result.

Age 36 with PCOS, poor ovarian reserve (.197), and blocked left fallopian tube.
We are TTC our 2nd blessing baby.

We've been trying for 21 months. We tried for 10 before getting a BFP, then I miscarried. Since then I've sat out 2 long cycles to recover, done 5 rounds of clomid, 2 with progesterone to help my LP, 1 of those 2 we also triggered and did an IUI. I've also sat out 3 cycles now waiting to start injectables in 2009. I've been doing acupuncture for about 3 cycles, which seems to be helping some of my issues. I've been temping/charting for over a year now. I've guzzled gallons of green tea and cough syrup, used instead cups, tried vitamin B for my LPD, and tried just about anything else I could think of or find on the Internet to try to help.

Thank you peimum for my siggie

We have been trying since Nov 2006 but we did have a break from Sept to March due to our wedding in the summer. I ovulate every month - i just think we have rubbish timing. Hopefully our time will come soon.

Since 06 but took a loooong break and have been actively trying for the last 6 months. I just started temping and charting on FF last month hoping and praying it will help. I'm almost 35 and I'm scared
