I searched for your question and I wish I knew the answer for you but I know when I did finally get PG it was after the cramping that we did the deed and it worked. Not everyone is the same. When the cramping starts you can try using the OPK strips to sse when the most fertile time is.
Hope I helped.

I figure if you ovulate round day 14 that is when you would get the cramps, i used to have cramps at ovulation (when i had af) and that is how i knew i was ovulating, it may be usefull to take your morning temps and see when you ovulate and pin point the cramps to this or use the opk's. Hope this is of help, i would have sent a message to you sooner if i had seen the origional question.
We are all here to help so please dont think we have ignored you, it could just be that none of us knew the answer.
Good luck with ttc and hopefully you will return and ask us more questions sprinklings of baby dust to you.
I'm sorry you never got your question answered but the Ladies above have the best answer for you that I can think of. But there is other ways for you to have gained more "proffesional" answers by calling your OBGYN, researching the net or asking other friends that were pregnant or are pregnant. Please keep in mind that we are here for ideas and support and are not allowed (Bi-laws of this sight) to give you precise answers. It sounded like you were upset with us and I am offened by that. Not to forget that you did have two answers to your message; just that they were unable to help you. Maybe it is the hormones in me but I am truely sorry that you lost a month of TTC and I wish you good luck with the BD in this month.
