    Ovulation - Did I Miss My Window

    An_267437 posted:
    I'm fairly new to all of this and it's so confusing and stressful. I started using Clearblue Fertility Monitor this month. My first test day was Saturday, April 16 got a Low reading. I also starting using OPK on Sunday. On Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and today Friday I got HIGH readings on CBFM. On Tuesday morning I got a smiley face/positive reading on OPK as well as on Wednesday morning. We BD on Sunday and Monday nights as well as on Wednesday evening. I still have not received a PEAK reading on CBFM. Did I miss my window? I also used Preseed on Sunday and Monday but on Wednesday there was a little bit of saliva but some Preseed on my partner. I had some minor cramping yesterday and the day before.

    I'm 43, my partner is 31. Unfortunately, he just came off of a cycle of anabolic steroids. It's been about 5 or 6 weeks since he stopped. My FSH is 7.1, Estradiol 61 and TSH 3.43 which I started medication for TSH to reduce it between 1-2 a couple of months ago. I have a regular cycle. My tubes and ovaries are fine. Had tests and ultrasound done to check all of this.


    How do I increase my chances or what am I doing wrong?
