Need to change ovulation dates
I'm looking for a but of advice please, I am currently ttc and have been off the pill since last June and started trying last September. The first couple months I hadn't been using ovulation sticks but started doing so and have been able to pinpoint my ovulation dates since November. However, the problem is my boyfriend works offshore on a 2:3 rota and every month I am ovulating before he gets home. my periods are pretty regular, not standard 28 days but vary between 30-34 days at most. Every month I get my hopes up that my ovulation may come later and we'll have a window of opportunity but its just not happening. I am on day 19 today and he is due home tomorrow and when I felt the ovulation pains today at work I felt like bursting into tears as that's another month out of the window
My question is, is there any way of delaying ovulation or changing your ovulation at all without going back on the pill? I'd rather avoid this if possible as I don't want to mess around with my cycle but I can't think of any other option. It's actually driving me mad, everyone around me seems to be falling pregnant so easily but it just seems so hard for us ATM. I've tried to get a doctors apt but haven't been able to get anything due to working over an hour from where I live so any advice would be appreciated.
