I had my paragaurd removed in December as well. I have been tracking my cycle and can't understand why I'm not pregnant yet. I have started using an ovulation kit and now I see I should have ovulated a few days ago and my hormones haven't spiked at all. No ovulation?! I've always had completely regular periods. Please let me know if you hear anything.

Welcome to the board, ladies!!

Calendars work best for people with textbook cycles. They assume you always ovulate right in the middle of you cycle, but that's not true for everyone. So also tracking signs of fertility like cervical mucus and basal body temp can help.

I ovulate late in my cycle - day 16ish in a 27day cycle. That might also be the case for you. And don't forget that your hormones surge AFTER you ovulate.

Baby dust!
