    Please do not use castor oil packs. We don't know where you are in the cycle and it is not going to help you ovulate or for your period to come unless it's ready to happen. They do nothing and may cause harm.

    Are you eating more fat?

    How many calories?

    Up to 60 g fat and be sure it's at least one serving of full fat dairy every day, 4-6 eggs a week, and a serving of salmon if you like it, red meat if you don't every week.

    Hey atomic,

    So quick update for you. Iím on week 15 of the plan, 2 cycles TTC. First cycle I eventually OV around day 36, no luck after 1 attempt. This cycle I managed to get femara, which worked perfectly as it has done for me before, OV on day 17 👍🏻 We did 1 attempt, 1 day before pos OPK. But Iíve just started AF on only 8 DPO 🤯. Iíve always had a slightly shorter LP, usually around 11/12 days, but this seems way too short.

    Is there anything I should be doing differently now Iím on Femara? Also I upped my exercise back to the 6 days a week, as I knew I would OV ok with the meds but now wondering if thatís affecting my LP?

    Any advice would be great! Thank you!

    Have you increased fat intake and dropped fiber? If not, please do. Keep going with this. Don't drop the recommendations I gave you earlier just because you've ovulated, you need more fat than you're getting.

    What is your BMI?

    HAve you continued with exercise 4 days a week or have you started doing more again?

    How did you determine ovulation?

    I would have you consider going to e4d. After your last dose of medication, start having unprotected sex every 4 days (count this in the 72 hour pattern, Monday/Thursday/Sunday, etc) and continue with this till you're certain you've ovulated (even if that means going all the way through to the next period starts. That way if you ovulate before you expect to, we are still covered.

    Iím at at least 60g fat, some days more. Still taking fibre tho, should I stop that?

    BMI at 19.1. Back up to 6 x 1hr cardio a week.

    Determined ovulation through OPK. We BD Friday, then got a positive on the Sat, so Iím assuming I OV on the Sunday.

    Thanks!

    Yep, let's drop fiber.

    I want you back at 4 days a week exercise till this sorts itself out.

    OPK are not always reliable so I'm hoping your LP was more like 9-10 days. But letrozole/femara is a good way to help boost that for many people anyway.

    I would say let's give it another month with those changes and I'm hoping your LP is more in normal range. (11/12 days is ok)

Size:  283.9 KBHi Atomic,

    Looking for some advice re my attempt this month (2nd cycle on letrozole). We BD on sat night as I was expecting to have a pos OPK on Sunday. But I didnít get a positive til last night (Monday), darkest line this morning (Tuesday am).

    So should we have another attempt today, or stick with just Saturday which will likely be 3 or 4 days before O if I actually ovulate tonight / tomo? I def had EWCM on Saturday at time of attempt.

    Help!
