Stupid lack of smiley face

I hate peeing on sticks and am addicted to it at the same time. It's a vicious cycle. I bought the souped up OPK's that either give you an empty circle...how fitting...or a smiley face. Well I used all 7 and no smiley face for me and the stupid things were expensive. Today is day 14 which would have meant O sometime around day 16 and the OPK was still negative so that means day 17 at the earliest. I only have 25 to 26 day cycles so the Luteal phase wouldn't be long enough. Just one more thing to worry about. I have progesterone to start but now I am not sure when to start taking it as I am supposed to take it after O...will be calling the Dr tomorrow.

This unmedicated and unmonitored cycle has left me unmoored and afloat in a sea of uncertainty. I didn't remember how comforting it is to have an Ovidrel shot and an Ultrasound to guide your way.

Maybe rather than continue to feed my habit by buying more sticks I should just go with the flow this time. Yeah right :( I should have been temping, and all the other crap but I didn't. Now I don't know, I just don't know when to "do it".

The one good thing that's been going on is I have my mojo back in the bedroom. It had flown the coop for many months possibly even year(s) if I want to be honest. I don't know if it was the hormone cocktail from last month (which gave me a mustache by the way) or something else but Mr Chick is getting tired :)

Where is that little egg? It's late for a very important date! I hope your phone call to the dr. will help clarify things.
Very nice to hear that you're feeling like your stamina is coming back in the bedroom. That is something to celebrate!

I envy you the bedroom mojo! I hope that's one of the benefits of the unmedicated cycle, 'cause the no ovulation part definitely sucks!

I took up someone's tip to buy OPK's online. Have not regretted that at all. I hate to chase ovulation even more than I hate having to think about whether I need to pee on something in the morning. I have zero patience for temping, but bless you if you can do it. I've found that I have such a short LH surge that I have to test twice a day during when I think it might happen. So I burn through sticks at an alarming rate. With any luck you catch that surge on the very next stick of your very next pack!

I also have problems with those ovulation sticks - I have had several months with no proof of ovulation, yet my RE says that I must ovulate... It's all a mystery to me...
