thai fell pregnant in november sound out that i was 4weeks pregnant on the 7 of november.
i misscarried for the second time on the 20th of november. :(
it was only 5months before that id misscarried. and tryed my hardist to become pregnant and hoped that i wouldnt loose another baby as it was so hard for both me and my partner to loose the first let alone loosing another one.
so any way i lost the baby around the same time the first time.
mu first period was on the 16th of december and as soon as the period started me and my partner felt that it was time to try again.
now ive got my ovulation tests its bin 12days since my period stoped and got my first negative ovulation test this morning.. my qustion is could i of already ovulated and if not when around will i ovulate
even after the first misscarriege my periods came back and lasted the same amount of days as they always use too.
could i of ovulated already? am i too late.
or should i just keep taking them evry day like normal. and wait for that smiley face.
only asking this qustion as dont want to waste ovulation tests when they cost so much.

Keep testing for the next few days and see if you can catch a positive. If there's no positive I think you may be out for this cycle. If you are out this cycle, Next cycle start using your opks about 5days after you end your period and test until you get a positive. You'll get a better idea of what day of your cycle that you normally ovulate on.

Depending on how far along you were when you lost baby, they suggest waiting at least 2-3 months. or two menstrual cycles before you try again...

Also, if you get opks on amazon or eBay, they're cheaper than buying digital opks. Just in case you're worried about using so many opks :)

got told to start testing on the 11th day. so count 11 days starting with the fitst day of my period. witch i did. but missed a day.
last time i didnt get my posative ovulation test till the 15th day.
i had a 27day cycle
and fell pregnant the first month of using the smiley face ovulation tests.
there really good. but also really expensive. 35pound for 20.
i used the cheap ones for 4months before i got the smiley face ones. and i never got a posative so i really wouldnt want to buy really cheap ones if they wont work for me. id rather pay alot of money for expensive ones knowing they work and rusult in a pregnancy straight away then waiting for a lifetime.
i no it is ment to be better to wait a couple of cycles then try again after a month. but ive spoken to my doctor and he said i seem ready to try again and with it only being really early in the pregnancy he dusnt really see a point in telling me wait he said it would be better but if i wanted try as soon as ive seen my first period i could...
am only on the 12th day of my cycle now so am hoping that ill ovulate soon. and really hope i havent missed my posative this month.x
