Yes, it's all so difficult to assess these situations because the symptoms overlap so much! And when we are wanting something so badly it's so easy to begin noticing every little thing as a "symptom" And I only say that from experience!
When I went off birth control (early 2013) it took about 3 months for my body to naturally re-set itself into a regular cycle and rythm. However, it's absolutley, totally possible to get pregnant at any point after stopping your birth control, so I hope that you maintain hope!
My LMP was 8/24/13 and it was a weird one. Off/On spotting and the one prior was 100% normal on 7/25/13.
For Sept., I was expecting my period 9/19-9/21 and it still hasn't come at all. My spouse and I DTD during when I'd be ovulating a couple of weeks ago (according to the WebMd Ovulation calendar). So now my period is roughly 4 days late (which is entirely abnormal for me) and I'm experiencing nausea with terrible breast tenderness. I'm hesitant to take a test because last month I was excited and the tests were negative.
PLEASE .... any suggestions? Comments? I need advice STAT!!View Thread
It's been two weeks since you posted and your period was due yesterday. I'm wondering how things are going for you.
I'm in a weird/waiting situation as well. My period was due just this last Thurs (22Aug) and it never really came. I experienced some spotting on the 25 and 26 but nothing like my regular flow. I took a test the day after my missed period and it was neg. but it may have been too early to take it as well and the result may not be accurate. I don't want to be overreacting or creating a psychosomatic "pregnancy" but I am legitimately experiencing symptoms and I feel quite convinced that I "know"
So, I definitely wanted to hear from you and see how your experience is going.View Thread
