Nita2012 posted:
My name is Coco, my DH and I conceived about 4 months after stopping the pill last year. We lost the baby due to chromosome issues and had a d&e in june. We started back trying July of this year. My cycles are so normal a 28 days. Every 14 days into my cycle I have ovulation pain, its last 24 hours. My question is when the pain comes is it after , before or during ovulation? I cannot test until Monday and I had no symtoms with my last pregancy but trying to conceive quickly due to my age being over 35... Help? Hoping we conceived this month...

Ovulation cramping is usually during ovulation so if you have it, have sex.

I guess my challenge is that I cant have it the day of the ovulation pain due to the pain so I usually way until right after it stops..for example, this month I had the Pain on that Monday the 14th day of my cycle but was unable to have sex until Tuesday morning due to the pain. So I'm wondering if I'm too late or should we be having sex the day of the pain regardless of the pain?

It's best to have sex the day or two before you ovulate. It takes some time for the swimmers to get up there.

Also, try having sex just for the fun of it... take some pressure off.

My husband and I tried for 7 months before conceiving. Every month I was so focused on making sure we had sex at the right time and got disappointed everytime I got a negative.

It wasn't until I decided to only have sex for fun and to be intimate with my DH that I got preggo.

Good luck
