    Me and my partner have been trying to concieve now for the past 4/5 months - with no luck.

    This month i took ovulation tests and we BD in the 5days leading up to ovulation and 1 day after. This is the first month in a while that i have had sore breasts during ovulation so i guess this is a good sign.

    I am now 5dpo and the soreness subsided a bit after ovulation but has now returned to as it was during ovulation. I also have sensitive (but not painful) nipples.

    Unfortunately i have also come down with some sort of virus and have had flu like symptoms for the past 3 days. Would this jeopardize my chances of ttc this month?

    Any advice would be welcome!! :lol: also is having sore breasts again when AF not due for another 8 days a good sign?

    Hey!
    It's really common to have cold/flu-like symptoms in very early pregnancy... so fingers crossed for you!!
    Do you have any other symptoms? When are you due on?

    I get sore breasts for 2 weeks after ovulation so may not mean anything. Don't know on the virus front...I doubt it will make a difference. Fingers crossed for you.

    Oooh that sounds like it could be promising! I have heard a lot of ladies think they have a cold/flu/virus and it turns out to be the start of pregnancy symptoms. Good luck!

    FRER are really good for early detection, CB has a bit of a bad rep for not being as sensitive and with it being a blue dye its more prone to evap lines making people think its a positive.

    I use Home Bargains tests as cheap ones but I also have FRER and the CB digi for when I know its positive and I can show my husband

    i thought i would ask as i tried the cb last month and it looked like it didnt even work.

    then i used the cheap opk ones for ov and that come straight up positive away because it was my day of ov.

    wat other advise would you recommend?.

    I use cheapies, about 100 for a tenner I think from ebay for OPKs only because I struggle to ever get a solid positive with them and I get too stressed. For them I would say find ones you are happy with and test when you feel necessary that works well for you

    Which test did you use? Some tests won't be positive until the day of period, if you're testing early ideally the best to use is first response early detection one as said previously, I also use home barging ones or the pound shop ones! Good luck x
