Hi, please can I join you?
I have long and VERY irregular cycles. We've been trying for our first baby for 17 months.
My cycles are usually somewhere between 46 to 60 days long although I have had a couple of short cycles just to really confuse me! One was just 24 days long (I'd only started OPKs on day 20 as I usually ovulate well past day 30!!)... I honestly feel like my body plays tricks on me sometimes!
Like Mrs Lennon, I've started to get really jealous of people with regular, 28 day cycles! It just feels like a really long wait between BFN and trying again! It doesn't help that everyone around me seems to be falling pregnant instantly!
I have endometriosis and the doctor thinks I may have mild PCOS too. I'm going in for a scan on Monday morning which I'm actually looking forward to as at least I'll feel like I'm doing something.
I've been taking Agnus Castus for a while. The first month I took it, I ovulated on day 15 but the next cycle I ovulated at day 35!!...
I have persevered with it though and have been having acupuncture at the same time (which I love!) and in the last 2 cycles I've ovulated on day 20. It's the first time my cycles have been anywhere near regular and short-ish(34-35 days) I just REALLY hope it continues!
I'm so happy to have found this forum. I was beginning to feel like I was the only one with such annoying cycles and, after trying so long I was feeling fairly disheartened. Poppy70- congratulations and thank you- you've given me some hope!
Wishing us all BFPs ASAP!
