    Hi ladies, I lost count at least 10 friends married after me Already gave birth n some even had 2nd one, feel stress & helpless sometimes but I believe our efforts will get pay off 1day! you can try to buy the Clearblue Advanced Ovulation test kits 60s can test up to 4 fertile days test on estrogen and LH.

    Majority of my friends also popped ping ping piang piang already. And i also have friends who are married and choose not to have kids and life is just as fulfilling, if not better. dont't compare or be pressured by peers. We all each have our own destiny

    Mintminer have not't seen you for a while. ..how are you?

    Re: We are trying to concieve-ing!

    I really let it go this time, i went to traditional chinese medicine about menses issues, end up menses in a mess. This month i heck care, eat what i like, never c any traditional chinese medicine. Only took clomid as what my gynae say n dont bother about trying to concieve. Suprising, AF came itself and not much cramps. I think emotions played a part as well. I had not being doing BBT for 2 mths , never test for ovulation, just bd when feel like it... dont care dont bother... hahha!

    Wow you girls are really strong-willed!
    Thanks for sharing yr stories...it really helps to know you girls are coping so well, gives me the strength to continue too...

    My SO and I decided if this month iui fail, we'll take a break for the rest of the year. Planning to go for a self-drive holiday in Dec, it will be so stressful worrying about it then... later cannot do this, cannot do that... see how bah....

    Anyone waiting for AF? Day 30, 16days after IUI now.. the suspense is unbearable...

    Re: We are trying to concieve-ing!

    Hey eggscatcher.. you're gg to do a hpt right? when do you think it is accurate to test? I called the nurse at NUH CHR (I'm on CD31 now) and she said to test a week later if AF still hadn't reported. Omg. Ha.

    Hi dilemma, If your Cycle is regular n missed AF for almost 1 wk, can start to test in the morning first urine after a long sleep. I think I will wait to test after I come back from holiday as I dont't want to spoilt my mood n put stress on my so n myself haha...

    Re: We are trying to concieve-ing!

    Ladies, does taking clomid regulate your menses? mine was super irregular but this cycle AF report on Day 31! I never so accurate before. I just went for blood test last mon to test for ovulation then today come AF? I got a shock when i go to the toilet. There was no spotting, just direct normal flow.
    Also, my gynae asked me to continue my clomid but i lost my prescription..which mean i had to skip my clomid for this cycle... clomid cannt be bought over the counter rite?

    Hi Eggscatcher.. so sorry to hear about that! Please dont't give up okay?

    Did your dr talk to you about IUI? I dont't know if it's possible to skip from IUI to IVF directly... what my dr told me was min 3 cycles of IUI, if no success only then they will recommend IVF. IVF is quite invasive and takes a toll both physically and emotionally I think, not to mention the financial cost...

    Re: We are trying to concieve-ing!

    I've a 29/30 days cycle range... tried the Clearblue Dig Ovu kit & got a 'smiley' face @ Day 12 on 1st morning try, as per the suggested date on their web
    (I was expecting btw Day 14-17 actually as per mobile apps). Hmmm...

    Re: We are trying to concieve-ing!

    eggcatcher I hope you had an enjoyable holiday though!

    Some docs will not put you on ivf straight away. But my case I guess is different because of my age, plus MCs, etc. She started me on ivf straight away.

    I feel it's good you're open to ART. The best person you should talk to now is a fertility specialist. Make an appointment and hear the doc out and explore your choices.

    If you're below 40 and singaporean, ivf will not cost you any much cash upfront because you can pay by medisave plus govt cofunding.

    Re: We are trying to concieve-ing!

    Hi Dragontail, hw have you been? My last appt I did asked the doc the difference between both methods, she said IVF have higher chance of success like 30% as is done in a lab but IUI is only 15% so it made me tempted to try it. I very scared of pain as my threshold is very low so it seems both are painful process

    We are trying to concieve-ing!

    Hello everyone. My menses was late for 9 days before it finally appeared. As my menses is always on the dot n I know I will not strike it this month coz homework not done enough. I was worried as my menses late means my dec ivf will delay. I m so glad it came this month.
