It's nice to know I'm not the only one who has these issues. I've done some more research and it seems like the symptoms I've had are common in some women. And it did say that durning ovulation I'd most likely feel these pains for up to 24 hours. So, I think I'm OK for now.
I am under doctor's care, but I'm not on any fertility meds... the last time I saw my doctor she wanted to have me use the OPKs for a few months and judge my cycle... at the time I was seeing her, I was getting positive OPK results, and then the following 3 months, NADA! This is the first month since that I've had a positive for ovulation, and in my research I've found that the ovulation pains can worsen for women who don't ovulate regularly.
I WILL infact bring this up to my doctor on our next visit. Just to be sure it's not something more. The USs I've had showed the cysts on my ovaries, but from what they've said everything else looked OK.
I'm keeping my fingers crossed that our efforts this month are successful...but who knows... if it's meant to be, it'll happen!
Thanks ladies! I'm sending positive thoughts to you both! View Thread
I was told that I have PCOS about 6 months ago. I've been using OPKs for about 8 months... I've had 3 months with positive LH surges, and then a 3 months without, and then yesterday I had another positive... however, I've noticed I'm having a LOT of cramping and pain in my ovary area on both sides, and putting two and two together I now realize whenever I ovulate it hurts tremendously.
I'm wondering, are there others out there who are experiencing the same issue, (is it common with PCOS) and if so, has your doctor said anything about it being something in addition to the PCOS?
The pains feel like pulling a muscle or severe cramping. It's not constant, but it's enough to stop me in my tracks when I have them. Also, if I stretch or sneeze it get worse. Anyone else dealing with this?
I'm also wondering if this might be common with ovulation... I've heard others complain when they ovulate, but I'm wondering if this isn't as normal as I'm hoping it might be.View Thread
:) Jackie (30)TTC 1 since 06/08 - possible PCOS & other Medical Issues - DH (33) no testing for him yet
AF is here today... all I want to do at the moment is scream, cry, throw a tantrum, or just do anything to get out all of my frustration... but I can't...I'm in my office at work, and I'm meeting my DH for lunch in 20 min. He knows already - I sent him a text to warn him that I might not be the best company at the moment.
How am I supposed to not get upset? Or how am I supposed to hide how frustrated and heartbroken I am?
My family has a bridal shower tonight for my soon to be SIL and her PG sister will be there, I had to deal with them last weekend asking me ALL about my issues, and WHY I'm not in the family way yet... I'm only looking forward to tonight because I can have a couple of drinks.
And then, MY sister is going to have her 2nd baby next week... I will have to take care of her son while she's in the hospital delivering the 2nd...then I have to work up the enthusiasm and tell her just how happy I am for her. Yeah, I'm happy that you're pregnant with your second "accident" and I still haven't had ONE success when I'm activly trying!
So now today, all I want to do is hide under the covers and pretend this whole ordeal is over - I'm so ready to TAB or call it quits all together. SO frustrating!
I know 2 years seems like nothing to some of you who've been trying for so much longer - but I'm starting to wonder if this will ever happen. :*(View Thread
I always have those same symptoms right before AF - and I'm so sore when that happens I can barely sleep. It's hard not to read into the symptoms though. My fingers are crossed for you!!!
I'm on CD 32 today, and have yet to have any symptoms... so who knows what's happening. I'm usually pretty regular 26-29 days... but I have gone as long as 33 days before (almost a year ago), so I'm just waiting for AF to show any day now. I've been using OPKs and didn't get a LH positive this month, so I'm not sure what's going on.
If your doctor told you to go back on the pill and forget about getting pregnant, you should definately change doctors. That's obsurd!
Most doctors will suggest you try on your own for about a year, and then if you've been actively trying for that period of time without success, they'll start the gambit of tests.(or atleast that was how my issues were handled)
Have you had all of the normal blood tests to make sure there aren't any underlying issues? (ie: thyroid, heart, etc.) They should have done these tests during your normal physical or pre-pregnancy screening.
How long have you been off of the pill? It can take a couple of months to get out of your system...but with what you've written about your conversation with your doctor, I absolutly think you should get another opinion.View Thread
Thanks! I try to make myself believe that I can't be PG, but deep down my hopes seem to get the better of me.
I have the same issues (don't worry it wasn't TMI)... I usually spot around CD 26-29, but still nothing yet.
We've been using the OPKs and I didn't get my LH surge this month, so more than likely I'll get a BFN anyway... but we did BD anyway around the time I should have gotten the positives...I'm expecting everything to go same as usual, but I can't shut off the little voice in back of my head that says "God, please let this be it!"View Thread
My sister's pregnant with her second - going to pop any day now. Both of which she says were"accidents."
I don't want anything to do with her lately... I know she needs support, but ALL I hear is her complaining about her pregnancy, and she uses it as an excuse. I'm sorry, I would LOVE to be in your situation, and still be willing to do every bit of what's expected of me on a daily basis without complaining.
My husband has said I've gotten into a darker mood the closer she gets to her due date. Lately, I think he's right. I'd hate to have my nephews suffer because of my jealousy though. But it's just SO hard to see her knowing I've wanted it for so much longer and have actually been trying my damndest to get pregnant.
