Still TTC...anyone try OTC fertility products?

We are going on month 3 of TTC, AF arrived a couple days ago and I am in the dumps about it. 

I am CD2 today, with a 28-30 day cycle. I'm not sure if my body is still trying to kick the hormones from my IUD or what but I have had no signs of ovulation other than a few hours of cramping when it actually occurs. The first cycle we TTC my luteal phase was only 11 days, this time around it was 13 so I am hoping that is good improvement. I am still nursing my daughter who will be two next month a few times a day so I'm not sure the effect that may be having on my fertility. Also, I have noticed no EWCM (or any other signs besides the cramping the day of O) in the days prior to ovulating, but I will be purshasing OPK this cycle to see if I do get a good LH surge. 

Has anyone tried any fertileaid products, pre-seed, or fertili-tea with success? Anyone else take a little bit longer to conceive after an IUD?

    I know it isn't that long, it just stinks. You think 2 years into BFing it can still affect my fertility? Thank you!

    Maybe. Some ladies get pregnant ..some don't ovulate. Have u seen if u are ovulating? My fertility Dr told me to do the deed on day s 10-20..(every other). Maybe try that?

    So I guess it could still really effect fertility. Or do you think there may be another reason?

    I do believe I am ovluating because of the cramps I get on O day, I am keeping track using my days, and it is pretty spot on. But other than that I don't notice any other signs that is why I want to try OPKs this time.

    I feel like I am getting none... I purchased some EPO to try this time around. Thanks you. I am hoping we can pregnant soon!
