Topic: Is it time to try a RE?
This is my second try. The first try I got one positive OPK on Sunday night and tried Monday night and Tuesday morning. I got my period 2 weeks later on Sunday around the same time as my first positive OPK.
This time, I got a positive OPK Sunday using the purple clearblue, but the pink one never gave me a positive (I got a positive clearable pink one last time about 12 hours after the purple one gave me a "peak" reading). I tried inseminating Sunday night and Monday late afternoon.
I also tried tracking my BBT this cycle. In general, my temps range about 1 degree despite having an alarm at 6 am so I can take it at the same time everyday. (I’m a restless sleeper and sometimes I wake up around 4-5am and just take it then.) My BBT did go up Monday night, but I think that was because I got up a few times in the middle of the night. Last night, it was one of the lowest temps this cycle. I’m guessing that means I didn’t ovulate? I have had some cramping that started Sunday afternoon that I assumed was ovulation pain but now I’m not sure.
My sister had PCOS but I’ve never officially been diagnosed with it despite having talked to the doctor about having some of the symptoms. My cycles are pretty regular (every 33-36 days), but I recently found out that doesn’t mean that I don’t have PCOS.
Is it time to try a RE? Or should I make an appointment with my regular OBGYN to see if she can help?
I’m thinking about doing this test http://requestatest.com/progesterone-testing next Monday to see if I ovulated this cycle just so I have a better idea. It’s well worth the $60 to me if it will give me an answer. It's a 3-4 month wait to get in with my doctor.
