In your experience... do the test line on OPKs build with intensity the closer you get to ovulation? I've only used them about 5 times (totally unfaithfully) in the past 23 cycles. I'm just doing them for fun this cycle. I kinda would like an idea of when I can expect AF to arrive.

Glad to hear you are safe, Ashleigh! Can't even believe what I'm seeing on TV... so heartbreaking. My Dad & DH almost went to the Sox game today, thank God they didn't.

How bad is a testosterone level of 97? That's what mine was the last time they checked. The hair is getting worse. :(

Mine would vary! I honestly drove myself nuts with the line ones. I would have what looked like a positive for a week or more!

My husband and I have been trying for 3 years with two miscarriages and my PCP is sending us to an infertility specialist to see i he can find a reason behind our inability to conceive/keep a pregnancy.



ETA: While at her office she mentioned using Lupron or Lutrepulse, have any of you used these?

Hi & welcome! Very sorry to hear about your losses!



I used Lupron in the beginning phase of our IVF. Though I think it's used for many different reasons. I took it to put my natural cycle in "sleep" phase so that I wouldn't ovulate before my egg retrieval.



Good luck in your journey!

Thank you. I haven't actually talked to the doctor yet but my PCP said that I am definitely ovulating on my own, hence my four children, and that because I am young and have normal cycles and ovulate at generally the same time it may be due to my progesterone levels but if not I may need to take something just to increase ovulation if that makes sense. She said it more medically but I don't remember her exact wording.
