Hi My name is Lisa and i guess ill start from the beginning. Me and my fiance have been talking about having a baby for over a year now and we finally decided to go off birth control in July. My cycle has been very random since then. They were as followed; 24 days-2 day period, 30 days-5 day period, 38 days-3 day period, 33 days- 5 day period and i'm in the middle of my 5th cycle where my period lasted 9 days and am now bleeding again when it had just ended 10 days ago. The bleeding hasn't been much but more then a few drops but i would say less then a teaspoon a day and this has been happening for about three days. It started out bright pink in color and is now more brown. I'm wondering if any one else has had any problems like this or if these random cycles are normal for someone just getting off B.C. I should also mention that i did take an ovulation test between my 3rd and 4th cycle and nothing show up on the tests. I was also on B.C. for about 5 years. Thanks for taking the time to read my problem and hope someone can help me.
Well i have figured out what has been going on this past month and i have wonderful new I'm pregnant!!! I'm going for a doctors appointment next wed the 25 to confirm everything. I wish the best of luck to you and your husband keep your hopes up!! Keep me posted!!!
I haven't made a Dr. app. yet i will be doing that today.(i think i'm just a LITTLE nevus to find out whats going on. There is just so much running through my head. Just to up date you though I've been feeling sick in the mornings about an hour or two after I wake up. Eating seems to help. This has been going on for about 4-5 days now and then today I'm getting some sharp cramping on my left side. Also yesterday and so far today have been the only days i haven't bled, not sure whats going on but i guess I'll find out.
How has the Clomid been working for you? Have you noticed any changes yet? I'm not to sure what this drug actually entails but i hope it's just the thing you need to get you "started" (...lol)
I too find that a lot of people don't understand how hard it can be on some people and how upsetting it is to know that you've tried and still nothing when it seems so easy for everyone else.
Thanx for your response and I hope everything works out for you. I defiantly knows its tough TTC. It makes it even harder when I see so many people I know that are either pregnant right now or recently just had a baby and none of them were even trying and half of them were on bc and don't get me wrong I'm so happy for everyone of them I think it just makes things that much harder. nobody knows that we are trying to have a baby and it seems every time we get together with our family they are asking when we are going to have a baby which again makes things hard. But I'm pretty sure I bed to get into the doctors because I'm still bleeding a little bit everyday and I only finished my period 11 days ago and I've been bleeding for about 4 days now. So I guess we will see what happens. Thanks again for sharing with me I appreciate it a lot. It helps a bit to know that someone is have issues after going of bc. Again I hope everything works out.
