OK I have just read TCOYF ... and need to reassess everything I have been doing!
The book says that the luteal phase will only be 14-16 days long. Given my cycles are so long I would assume the higher end. This means I will always ovulate this long before my period so:
C2: POPK at CD24 out of 64!
C3: nothing before CD32 then I stopped and assumed I had missed it or anovulated
so either a. the OPK wrongly tested positive which could be because with PCOS LH surges can happen when not ovulating or my luteal phase is very long which apparently wouldn't happen unless you're anovulating. So either way points to anovulation which might just be the end of me if true. I am not sure I have the strength.
So here I am on C4 CD20. I am OPKing - got 20 for £5 so I can test every other day. I am hoping that if I keep OPKing right up to the CD40s I should get a positive and realise I do ovulate that late on and we can then focus our BDing on that phase. I am also measuring my BBT now too which should give a really clear picture about if/when I am ovulating through temp shift.
In short new plan is:
1. BBT everyday and chart
2. OPK every other day
3. Pin down ovulation phase
If I just do that and don't worry about pregnant this cycle it should be a big help.
