My whole life, I've had irregular periods. Once a year, sometimes 2 or 3 times a year. You can imagine the incredible shock I was in to find out I was pregnant, since I hadn't menstruated in over 6 months. I was 23 and it ended in a still birth.
It's almost 6 years since then and my periods are the same, extremely irregular, but I'm ready to take that journey again. I'm starting by losing all of the depression weight I gained after losing my son, a work in progress. I also met with a Gynecologist, hadn't seen one since my first pregnancy in 2007. According to tests,my hormone levels are low, but still within the "normal" range. The 10-day pills they gave me to force my period didn't work and the vaginal ultrasound came back normal too, so, what do I do? If I don't have a menstrual cycle will I not be able to get pregnant? Is there something my doctor didn't check that I should ask about? Could something have gone wrong during my labor that someones not catching? Any advice would help. Thanks.View Thread
I too have a similar issue. I have been pregnant before, but sadly, that pregnancy ended in a still birth, full term. Saying that my periods are irregular would be a major understatement. I rarely get them. Maybe every 6 months to a year and once I do they only last like a day or 2 and are really faint. My doctor took all the tests, they all came back normal, but I still don't have a normal cycle. All he was able to say was that I would need help getting pregnant and guaranted that I can conceive based on the fact that I've been pregnant before. Does anyone else have any advice or maybe home remedies, even over the counter things that may help or should I just find myself a new doctor?View Thread
