If you haven't spoken with your caregiver at this point, go in and talk to them. There are sometimes chemical causes that explain weight issues and irregular periods. Do you tend to carry your weight more in the middle of your body (around your waist) or lower in your body (around your hips)? Do you have issues with extra body hair or acne? Exercise is definitely important but there may be other things going on that can be addressed to help with pregnancy but also to help you feel better in general.View Thread
It's frustrating when you're ready to begin your family and you run into these issues. I wouldn't expect a depo shot to continue to affect your attempts at pregnancy at this point. It's time to see your caregiver and review your bleeding pattern in detail. Bleeding/staining/spotting all of the time is not expected at this point. Investigating the abnormal bleeding will overlap with investigating your fertility questions. Good Luck!View Thread
They should be able to give you more information after your scan. Generally we believe fertility should be intact even if one ovary is removed. Go ahead and ask your practitioner about how you can address problems with ovulation after you get the go ahead from your scan.View Thread
Hopefully you've found time to read the article and realized that many of the causes of amenorrhea are treatable. We also want to protect your uterus for the future. Continuing to not have periods for years and years could cause problems down the road, problems that we can usually prevent without a lot of fuss.
And sometimes stress (like an upcoming wedding) can bring on a period at just the wrong time. Find a way to get in to see your doctor. There's a good chance you'll be relieved to have a plan.
Not all tests are useful for all women. If you ovulation kit is positive, I believe you ovulated. I would not worry about the temps. As added reassurance, you could ask your doctor to draw a progesterone level one week after your ovulation kit turns positive. I would only do it once to confirm the kit.
I didn't follow your question about the miscarriage so I can't comment. Can you restate?View Thread
Most people do well with this procedure. There may be strong menstrual like cramps while they are doing the test and then milder cramps for an additional hour or two. Whatever you normally use for cramps should help if you take it before the procedure. Most people can go back to work or drive themselves home without trouble.
You're right about the emotional aspect though. It is often the worst part of all of this testing. It's hard to hear something is wrong but can be just as hard when they can't find any cause.
They will not fix anything at the time of the test. This test is purely to diagnose. Most true blocks can not be repaired but are bypassed via IVF.
There are people who get pregnant after their HSG and we wonder if there was a small black that was opened by the pressure of the dye during the test.
I am so sorry to hear how hard you've struggled. We've all been amazed at the stories we've heard after long struggles though. We are continually amazed in the office. Here's hoping, wishing, praying that yours will be one of those amazing stories.View Thread
Yes, you could still be pregnant. It depends on the test, the time of day it was taken and other factors. If the test is still negative in a couple of days and your period hasn't started, go to your doctor for a pregnancy test. If you are having pain, go nowView Thread
