    Hi ladies,

    Is anyone using Fertility Friend? This is my first month using it, suggested by my accupuncturist to try and figure out what's going on with the brown spotting that I have had since my early miscarriage in January.

    We have been to see the consultant about IVF and the plan is to head down that path in the new year. I don't want to get my hopes up but I'm on day 24 (10 days past ovulation) of a 29 day cycle and I've had a horrible metal taste in my mouth for the last few days. My dreams are really vivid and I felt really sick on Friday night (we were at a gig and the music was loud!) and again on the train to work this morning.

    I have had pink/red spotting when I wipe (sorry, TMI) last night and today and mild cramp. I'm also being a grumpy cow to my other half, no-one else just him.

    So, is this just my period on it's way or is the dip an implantation dip? Or do I just need to wait the next few days and see if my temperature goes back up?

    Feel like I'm going nuts. x

    How long is your luteal phase normally?
    It could be possible that it is an implantation dip but i think you may need to wait a few days to see if your temp goes back up.
    Good luck

    So my temperature has shot back up and is the highest on my chart at 36.3 but I’ve still got pink/ red blood when I wipe (sorry if tmi!) So I guess i’ll Just have to wait a few more days to see what happens. X

    It's not really possible to tell yet. I've had my chart go all over the place. If it goes up and stays up or goes below your cover line then you'll know. Sorry.

    So my temp has been going up & down like a yo-yo. I’ve got a sore throat / nose and that horrible taste in my mouth but I think I’m out this month because I’m spotting. This is day 27 of 29.
    At least I’ll be able to show my chart to accupuncture lady. Not sure if all those spikes are normal ‍♀️

    I wondered what that was! I didn’t mean to do that ;) Just checked and I had hit it by mistake.
    It’s the early starts!

    I had an early miscarriage in January and since then I have an ongoing saga with spotting in my luteal phase - this morning it was old brown blood when I wiped (sorry TMI) and before that I've had red spotting. All doctors tell me its nothing to worry about but accupuncturist thinks it means low progesterone which is why I'm now doing BBT temping to see if she can spot a trend and help. Been TTC for about 14 months now and we're looking at IVF in the new year.
