SUPER dry after ovulation? I don't remember this happening before but holy crap. I ovulated the 10th or 11th and today I'm so dry that it's uncomfortable. Sorry end of my rant.

I'll see if that works. I'm pretty sure its a combination of post ovulation dry up and probably part having sex a lot the past few days. I'm just hoping it is better tomorrow.

Well Ill have to have the hubby do it because as weird as this probably I actually have a hard time arousing myself. I've tried and tried and just end up having whoever I was with do it. It sucks I wish I could because the hubs isnt home all the time if I want it. lol

Try drinking a bit more water if you're not drinking a lot. I used to have that issue to until I started taking in more water. CM during ovulation was better and so was after ovulation. I was dryer but not as dry as it used to be.

You actually bring up a good point. I really haven't been drinking enough water the past couple days. My ovulation CM was great and now its like the Mohave. haha

Try that. I'm sure it will help. Just telling u to do it reminded me I need to step up my water intake. I haven't been drinking much at all and with ovulation approaching I need some good fertile CM since we're ttc. I hope to get a positive opk this month. I was on metformin cuz they thought I had PCOS but it just screwed me up. I didn't even get a positive for ovulation last month and my period ended up being 11 days late.

Sorry that the medication screwed you up. I'm in the same boat only Depo has screwed me up. I didn't go for my last shot in May and I didn't have a period until Oct. 4th and I still didn't get another one but I just ovulated the 10th or 11th of this month and had my first 2 positive OPKs on those days.

Depo sucks. I was on it a few years ago and it made me bleed heavy for a month and a half. Never went on bc since getting off of it. I was getting positive opks up until my surgery in August. I had a 5.6cm cyst on my right ovary which needed to be removed. I didn't test for ovulation after the surgery. I should have. I just went on the metformin thinking I wasn't ovulating. I think it was just me wanting to find something to get me preggo quick. Backfired on my ass. I hope i get a positive this month though. The lines on the opks are still light but they are darker than yesterday. Yesterday I had to squint to see the second line today I saw it clear but light so I'm hopeful.

I hope that this is your month, it's at least a good sign that they are getting darker. I was so surprise that I ovulated since I hadn't even had another period which would make this a 50+ day cycle. I should start sometime around the 26th I believe but I'm really hoping that I caught the egg. Hopefully this is both our month!

Wow I hope it is your month. I really don't think I'll get any success this month. I'm not feeling hopeful for my positive opk. On the bright side if I don't then when I go to the doc on the 27th I can let her know and she can schedule me a CD21 test for next month. I just hope I won't need Clomid. Twins run in our family and clomid runs the possibility that you can have multiples. I have 4 days to see if the opks get dark enough to consider them positive. I got a box of 20 so I have enough to last these four days. I will test three times a day instead of two just in case i have a short surge.

Well just try to stay hopeful and ill be hopeful for you to. I've been heating about soy isoves? Not sure how to spell it but they I guess are like a natural way to help ovulation, so maybe that's worth a try if you don't want clomid.

I'm gonna wait and see what my doc has to say. I may just order some Fertibella online. It's like 40.00 for the starter kit. They say it helps get cycles back on track and promote healthy ovulation. The lines don't seem to progressing on the opks so I'm pretty much gonna claim this month as another month of failure. Don't know why my body is doin this now. I used to ovulate normally all the time. I'm getting twinges on my left side so it may be a good sign but I'm not too hopeful.
