    Are you just using an ovulation chart or are you charting your fertility signs? Ovulation can vary cycle to cycle. So the best indicator of ovulation pending is your cervical mucus and the position of your cervix. I'd reccomend reading "Taking charge of your fertility". Also it can take a healthy couple up to 12 months to conceive. Each month there is about a 10% chance of conception.

    I just started using a ovulation chart in October. Following the guidelines of every 48 hrs. I just bought my hubby boxers and hid his briefs. So bc for 3 months and then take yourself off to begin ttc? I'll talk to my gyno. Thanks!

    No one knows for sure what happened that caused her to not be able to get pregnant again but dad said she developed an infection after giving birth. When she was in her mid-30's she had to have a hysterectomy due to fibroid tumors.

    My worst fear.

    My mom had me at 20 but was never able to have any other children. I would talk to the doctor to make sure everything is ticking as it should be.

    It took us a couple years to get pregnant again after we had our first. I was starting to think there was something wrong with me. I finally got pregnant but had two miscarriages :( we tried again a couple of months after the second mc and got pregnant right away. I have two wonderful boys now :) it might take some time but dont give up. It will happen when its time :)

    Yeah I have found that for me the phone apps aren't always that accurate for ovulation. However, they are a good start. I use one that has me put my fertility signs as well as my period.
