I need some advice on what I should do with TTC first child. My cycle has always been irregular - for example from January 2012 to Jan 2013 my cycle length was (days) 22, 27, 61, 31, 61, 89, 69.
I know most gynos/Drs want you to try for a yr but is it fair to see someone if you have an irregular cycle? I saw a gyno in the past who ruled out PCOS, hormonal inbalance and basically said it is just me. I tried vitex for a couple yrs and it made no difference (i dont think). I'm scared that we will have trouble falling pregnant, and basically wont know when I ovulate.
I have read on some forums that some women have fallen pregnant without a period (some not having had one for 12 months or more). I guess there is always the chance!
Im being tested again for PCOS. I dont have any weight issues fortunately but do have some other mild symptoms such as acne. I definitely recommend people see your Dr earlier if you do have irregular periods. This Dr was great and said i couldve wasted a yr 'trying' so it was good to see her earlier so we could work on some things to better the chances of conceiving - whether its a need for medication, lifestyle changes etc.
I definitely will have you in my prayers too, and all others who are trying to conceive with irregular periods.View Thread
I have booked in to see a Dr this week so will soon learn what options I have, and whether they prefer us try for a while longer before taking any sort of medication (and to also have any tests if required).
We started trying around 2 1/2 weeks back, but by trying it is not monitoring anything and just not using protection.
Its good to know that some people have fallen pregnant even with an irregular cycle. Theres hope yet!!View Thread
