The honest answer would be that we don't know what's going on with your body yet. Generally we recommend that people wait 3 months before trying to conceive after coming off of the pill. We know that it can take the body a few months to settle down into a reliable pattern that can be interpreted. It can be very frustrating if things don't make sense when you begin trying for pregnancy and that may be what's going on with you.
You were right to schedule an appointment. Your caregivers may be able to sort it out (or maybe not at this point). A negative blood pregnancy test would confirm that you are not pregnant at this point and would take that question off of the table (just as a positive one would confirm that all of these symptoms are from a very early pregnancy).
We'll all hope for great news for you. At the very least, things will probably settle down over the next month or two and make more sense.View Thread
Generally we believe your chance of conceiving is unchanged. When someone loses one ovary, it appears the other ovary takes over and does the work of both ovaries. Hence, continued regular periods and regular ovulations. You could do temperature charting to confirm that you are ovulating every month. Good luck!View Thread
Your cycles are a bit on the long side and it would be reasonable to investigate a bit more. An ovulation predictor kit would give you some idea of whether you are ovulating. I would also see your healthcare giver and discuss your cycle. They might want to consider thyroid testing or other blood work to be sure there isn't something going on that could be addressed immediately.
Were your cycles long before you went on the pill? Are you on any type of supplements or over-the-counter nutritional or vitamin products? These are things that should be reviewed as well.View Thread
The belief is that serophene/clomid works by encouraging your body to encourage the egg to make more and better hormones early in the cycle. Kind of like starting a snowball down the hill, if we can get it going in a good way, it will pick up more and more steam on its own.
If your miscarriages were from a hormonal deficiency (lack of progesterone), adding this medication early might help you make more progesterone which might help you make a better bed for the egg to implant.
Have you talked to a fertility specialists? Sometimes there are things they can do that aren't as expensive. Intrauterine insemination (IUI) where they put your husbands sperm straight into the uterus can be helpful in some situations where sperm counts are off, and IUI isn't as expensive as some of the other therapies. Sometimes the milder fertility medications are also used (e.g. clomiphene citrate or femora) and they are not really pricey either.
I don't know if any of these things apply to you, but I would at least talk to a specialists to be sure there aren't more things available to you than you realize.View Thread
