    Throwaway Panther, that's so interesting! I am almost 35 and am terrified as I had my boys in my 20s. I feel like I'll be lucky to get preg! What you say makes total sense!

  2. Thanks Throwaway_panther thanked for this post

    It depends on what YOU want. Some people want Shettles and want to try for a 2-3 day cutoff, others don't care and we just put that one attempt at positive OPK for the sake of convenience since that is usually a good time to conceive.

    Or, if those don't work for you, just DTD every four days starting after AF and going through till you are sure you've ovulated.

    Your fertility DOES NOT rapidly drop off at 35, that is incorrect information used by doctors to terrify people based on a study from (drum roll) !!!!! THE 1600's!!!!!. Several of us had this fear and did all this stuff to boost our fertility over 35 thinking we had little chance of conceiving only to get a 3rd boy, and a 4th boy....LOL For a full write up about the dubious scientific basis of this claim read this article http://genderdreaming.com/forum/late...d-article.html

I've got an app on my phone called GLow, you enter when you have your period and daily logs including Cervical mucas, weight etc and it tells you your most fertile days? Should I trust this or stick to the OPK?
    Apps do not work reliably. OPK are better.

    NO, just randomly having an attempt when you see EWCM DOES NOT WORK. Please do not do this. You can get EWCM for many days before O and if you attempt too early then you have zero chance of conceiving.

    and additionally, those who are still having kiddos at older ages may be those who couldn't get pregnant to begin with. If everyone of normal fertility has kids in their 20's and is done by 35, and the only ones still plugging away (or at least the majority) are those who couldn't, then that skews results substantiallly.
