After yet another negative pregnancy test, I'm am looking for other women to talk to. My husband and I have been ttc since June 2011. I stopped taking birth control that month (after having taken it constantly for 13 years). Since then I have only been able to get a positive ovulation test for 3 months (Sept, Oct, Nov). I am beginning to wonder if I actually even ovulate every month. Cycles have stabilized in last three months at 28 days (same as when I was on birth control). But I start spotting 8 days out, something that never happened before. I saw my Dr. in October and she said to come back in May if we weren't successful. At that same appointment, I had my first ever abnormal Pap Smear. However, a further biopsy indicated everything was ok. I'm 30, my husband is 35. We're both in good shape, don't smoke, etc. I don't know what's going on. But it seems like everyone is having babies and it makes me so sad each month when I start my period. Am I just not being patient enough? Should I go see the Dr. before May?View Thread
LOL. Completly agree with your last sentence. I have never been known for patience in any aspect of my life. My husband had a physical yesterday and the doctor agreed to send him for a sperm count. We don't think anything is wrong, I guess it's just more piece of mind for us.
Maybe your body just needs more time to adjust to no birth control. Have you tried any ovulation tests to see if you're ovulating at all?View Thread
I know this is easier to say than do, but try not to stress too much. It's can't be good for you. There's sure to be an explanation about what's going on. Be open with your doctor and let him know everything. And remember, you can always get a second opinion if you feel you need one.
I was having horrible pains in my abdomen back in August. I was very worried. A visit to the doctor told me I have irritable bowels. She suggested taking a probiotic everyday and some slight modifications to my diet. I still have pain from time to time, but nothing like before. So, it might not even be a reproductive issue. I think it's easy to forget there's other equipment in that area when try to have a baby.
I am also scared about not being able to have a baby (we've been trying for 8 months) It's a horrible feeling. But at least you know you're not alone in your thoughts or trials.
