Hello, I've have a D & C procedure the doctor found 2 cyst in my cervix and 1 in my uterus. All were b-9 & they said my hormones were high levels.
This was back in Nov. 2011 and I was to wait 6wks to start trying to conceive. Since then, I'll get 2 cycles in 1 month they were light. But my normal cycle is at the end of the month. I use a basal temp chart etc. Ovulation test are always negative. I'm pretty much frustrated.
The color of my cycles was a light red now its dark red at times turning brown. I take ept test which are neg. But I'm not understanding why I feel light headed at times and the smell of some food I love makes me sick to my stomach..
Any advice???? I've been trying for 2 months now.View Thread
Hey ladies, I'm new here and this is my first post. DH and I have a daughter who is 2 years old and we decided a few months ago that it's time to start trying for number 2. I had my Implanon implant removed the very first week of October and the dr said I could get pregnant within the first month or it could take up to a year. Well since then I haven't even gotten my period. I'm not pregnant, I've taken many test to confirm that haha. I've been doing ovulation test and they all come out negative. I'm just wondering if anyone had Implanon and how long it too to get pregnant after having it removed?
My dr said if I don't get my period by March she will start me on progesterone to jump start it.
I must not be drinking the right water or something because everyone around me is getting pregnant right now! Thanks for any info you have for me!View Thread

My name is Krysta, and I'm one of the girls of the old boards. I used to post all the time before they went to the new exchanges.
Now we're TTC #2 so I've been lurking around for a week or so and figured I should introduce myself. DH and I have been married 4 years and have a son who's almost 2 1/2. Everybody (including daycare!) is asking when he's going to have a little brother or sister. Well, we're working on it.
Does anyone know how to deal with stress from life? Not just TTC. I am anxiously waiting for my BFP. Im only 4 days away from knowing too. But I just got a whole load of crap dumped on my plate this week. One of my 3 jobs has turned my whole schedule upside down because of one stupid manager. Its affecting my other job which is my main income. DH wants me to report the problem to the district manager and quit. Quitting means I lose 7 months work history which my family needs to get the home loan we need to build our house. I have 2 other jobs and just interviewed for another but still. I hate to quit. It makes me feel like I am letting my DH and DS and possible future LO down. Venting on here helps cause I know there are women on here that understand. Does anyone have any advice on keeping this from getting to me?View Thread
My husband and I decided to have a 3rd child a couple of weeks ago. The first night we had sex without protection was when I was fertile. The waiting to see if I'm pregnant is killing me. I will see if I start my period next week or not. The waiting is not fun. I just want to know. LOL. What do people do to try not to think about it?View Thread
Hi, I already have a 11/2 year old son, and my husband and I are currently trying to have another one. My first was a surprise, so this trying thing is all new to me. My last period was on Dec. 26 2011 and I'm usually at a 28 day cycle. The week of the 9-12 I was ovulating so my husband and I got to work. Sunday the 15th I had brownish spotting. It was on and off, it was either brown or pinkish. It never got heavy or enough to fill up a panty liner. This morning it was more red but still not enough to be considered a period. Now, I'm not spotting or bleeding at all. Could this be implantation bleeding? Can it last 3 days? and is it too early for implantation bleeding at this time? I'm suppose to get my period on Monday, the 23 of January.View Thread
I have taken two rounds of DEPO (the shot). My last shot was December 11th. My husband and I plan on trying again for a second child as soon as it is ok! I have not been on the shot long enough to stop my period but it is now irregular.
This being said, is there anything I can do to... Encourage these hormones to vacate my system?
We plan on trying again in March because that is the time I would need another shot.
Any advice?View Thread
Were newly married had a scare and thought well either way is ok, then after realized we wanted a family, We decided to start one. I want to know how i can stop constantly worrying about the time to get pregnant as well as talking about it... I am going to school and work but i know that the husband and my best friend are tired of listening to me talk about it....any ideas?View Thread
My husband and I just got married and just recently had a pregancy "scare" but when the test came up not pregnant we were both surprizingly dissapointed and now we have baby fever. But now we can't seem to get pregnant i havent had a period in over a month and ive taken ovulation tests every day for almost a month and i havent ovulated yet. I thought I was pregnant but after taking another test it came up not pregnant could i be pregnant and it be too soon to tell??View Thread
I haven't even thought about having another baby (my daughter is 9 years old and I have a stepson that is 18) but after my husband and I finally got married we decided maybe it was time to expand our family.
My daughter was a surprise 10 years ago, I was on the pill and still got pregnant with her. Now I'm 31 years old and I had the mirena for 5 years then had it replaced with another one almost 3 years ago. Has anyone had one in for that long and had trouble getting pregnant? I had mine removed this morning...my doc said this morning that I was fertile now but I have read how just about everyone knows when their cycle is...I have no clue!! I spotted for nearly three months after I had the very first mirena placed. Since then the only signs of a period I have ever had was I might spot every so often and it was only visible when I wiped...nothing else. If my memory serves me correctly, I always had my cycle around the 22 of the month but that has been almost 8 years. I've already started bleeding, less than 2 hours from having it removed...View Thread
I want to know if anyone out there kept having negative test results when they were in fact pregnant. My period is over 10 days late and I am showing some of the symptoms of pregnancy that I had with my first child, but all my tests have come up negative. I have never been late like this before and a friend of mine said she was four months along before showing up on a test! With my last pregnancy, I showed up positive on a test at 3 weeks in! It's driving me mad!View Thread

I just really need to get some things cleared out of my mind at the moment because I feel if I dont, I am going to explode. I have bipolar disorder and this my be affecting some of my thought process but I just need to feel like I am not the only one thinking these things.
1- Some days I would rather strangle my mom than talk to her. I called this morning about our plans for the day and it turned into me fending her off because she feels that she is allowed to say whatever she wants to me without me getting my feelings hurt because she is "joking". Normally I would let this kind of thing roll off but lately, even after I ask her to stop poking fun at me about my weight, or stress, or life, she tells me I am oversensitive and continues. I thought I was doing the adult thing by telling her that I know she is joking but it still hurts and that I would feel better about it if she was a little less joking about my self esteem. The conversation ended with her telling me that she was sorry for how I take things and I hung up.
2- My 2 year old DS doesn't think I am "Mommy" anymore and refuses to call me so. He calls me by my actual name which is fine, except when I am trying to discipline him and he tells me "NO, chelsea!" and those around me laugh at him saying this. It feels like I am being undermined because it needs to be taken serious when I am trying to reprimand him. It turns into a joke and I get frustrated because these are people that are supposed to be backing my parenting up like my mom, DH, and my sister.
3- While DH and I are TTC #2, I am floored to be on these forums reading about women, with no job, insurance nor stable relationship asking for advice on how to go about conceiving. What is even more disturbing is how uneducated these women are. My opinion, which is by no means factual or to be taken personally, is unless you can spell pregnant and conceive, you shouldn't be actively trying. Further more, If you are so dim to think that you can conceive without ovulation, having sex, or don't understand how an actual cycle works, you shouldn't be trying to have a baby. I am proud of the women that have overcome all odds to provide support for their children in circumstances where they are left with no work, no support, no insurance, and no help. But my gosh, why would you intentionally bring a life into this world with no means to financially support it. It makes me sick to see couples that have spent their whole lives preparing to be parents, going through school, working their butts off, saving and planning to bring a child into this world so that they may have a bright future and know, they can't conceive naturally, and on the other hand hear from people on the street about trying to have another baby so that they can get more state assistance. DS wasn't planned, his father and I were only together for 2 months when I got pregnant. I am not proud of this. I wouldn't change my life for the world but we worked hard to get where our family is at today. We both worked while I went to scholl we paid our debt and struggled. We fought tooth and nail to be in a place where we provide for our DS 100%. Some months are harder than others, but make it through. And for someone to approach me with the idea of having a child for financial gain is disgusting. Or to do it for selfish reasons like they just want someone to love them or think that a baby will fix a broken relationship or even entrapment, makes me absolutely sick.
I hope no one takes this personally and I know that every situation has their own circumstances so this isn't really speaking to any one individual. I just pray that people give more consideration to that fact that TTC means bringing a life into this world because you have the love, time, and support that being needs to develope into a contributing member of humanity.View Thread
Im not sure my doc was right about me being able to get pregnant, he said i was but how??? another month has gone by and still i dont ovulate, so im trying to figure out CAN YOU GET PREGNANT without ovulating??? becuz i dont think any woman could, i mean the unless my doc doesnt want to tell me the bad news but why would he lie??? im stress trying to figure it all out ANY ADVICE???View Thread
I was feeling icky last week and gave in on Wednesday night. I used a clear blue easy digital test and within 30 seconds had pregnant come up on the little screen. Its still kinda sinking in still and we are telling our close family and friends until the second week in February because I have had two miscarriages before. Its been hard to not tell anyone when they keep asking because they knew we were trying. I just tell them its too early to tell yet because AF was supposed to come yesterday. I already had a doctor appointment because I had one scheduled to see why we weren't getting pregnant, so my doctor was happy and set up my next appointments. Now I have to relax until then.View Thread
I am new to this...let me start out by saying that I have PCOS. I was prescribed metformin, but am not currently taking that at this time...I am on birth control...Loestrin 24..and do not have a period..even if I am not on any form of bc I still do not have a period. I have read a lot of information in this community about TTC, and am just wondering what are the steps to take to to get pregnant without a period and with PCOS. I am not neccesarily TTC right at this moment, but am hoping in the future to conceive (soon), and am very worried about how things will work. I know this( TTC w PCOS) is not impossible, but I also know that it is not easy, and will be a long road. I am just looking for some advice..or stories of others who have gone through the same issue. I also want to say that I do have a 4 year old who I had before I found out about the PCOS. any words of encouragment or other stories would be great! good luck to all of you ladies!
Hello- my husband and I have just recently started trying and I have used the tool on here for the ovulation calendar and calculator. Earlier this week i was supposed to have my period, but I havent yet. I had some spotting earlier this week- like the day before I was due for my period- which I have had in the past and my period came a couple days later. According to the last few months on the calendar, I have been dead on for getting it. My last period- only lasted 2 days and that was it- usually it lasts for 4-5. I have felt sort of queasy the last few days, and at one point my nipples were very sensitive for about a week. Other then that I havent really felt any different. My nurse said to wait until next week to take a test. Just wondering if anyone else has had something similar to this and what their outcome was. Thanks!!View Thread

I decided to stop TTC in December and now I'm 7 weeks along. Today I took an at home pregnancy test and it came back positive then I made a trip to Planned Parenthood to get a test done through them and it also came back positive.
Just wanted to say be patient because it will happen when you least expect it!View Thread
So, I was on the depo for about 2 and half years. My last shot was back in May 2011 and I started having problems with it. I called my doctor to see if I could switch to the pill before my next shot appointment. I understand that it can take up to a year for the shot to leave your system, but with taking the pill, I started getting my periods back. My husband and I decided to start trying for a baby after my second batch of pills. In October, I got my normal period. In November, it came two days late and lasted all week. There was nothing different about it except for it arriving two days late. I didn't get one for the month of December. I thought that it might come late like it did in November, but it's been almost a week and still nothing. I took a test this week, but it said negative. I'm not trying to stress out about it, but I would just like to know so that I can start taking the necessary precautions. If anyone has any answers or suggestions for me, it would be greatly appreciated View Thread
I'm confused and hoping I will be able to get some answers to my questions. First in August 2011 I had a miscarriage, but the crazy part was I didnt even know I was pregnant until I went to the doctors and told her how my af didn't come on time but I was spotting the day of my appointment, so my doctor tested me and to my surprise I was preggo's. But days later I had a miscarriage . I started using the nuvaring in Sept 2011 and was on it for approximately 3months(until Dec 17th 2011). Now here's where it gets complicated while I was on the nuvaring for those 3months I never got my af I did take a pregnancy test before I stopped using my nuvaring on 12/17/2011 and it was negative as I already knew. The reason I stopped using the nuvaring was because I was inproperly using it, I was keeping it in for 4weeks instead of 3weeks so my question is because of that could that be the cause of me not gettin my af since Aug 2011 or the bleeding i experienced in Aug was from me miscarrying so that would mean my last period was in June? I decided to stop using the nuvaring until my af comes back on normal but I have had unprotected sex ALOT between 12/17/2011 up until now so I would like to know if its a safe guess to say because I haven't had an af in 3months that I'm probably not ovulating which means I can't possibly be/get pregnant as of now? I'm really confused and I'm starting to experience the same symptoms I had when I found out I was pregnant.....my lower back hurts on and off my stomach keeps cramping but no af and its been this way for like a week on and off, occasionally my nipples will be sore. Any advice or feedback WILL SO GREATLY APPRECIATED. If there is any possibility I could get pregnant when should I test to see?View Thread

My period came 8 days early my flow wasnt light but it wasnt heavy, it only lasted for 2 days stopped and started again but was light and only lasted 1 day. When it was time for my period (I am usually regular and can count when I am going to start) I just got a little crampy but no period. The past 3 days I have been sick to my stomach my nipples are sore and I can barely keep my eyes open, what do you think?View Thread
My DH and I have just started out on our TTC journey. We are trying to just let nature take it's course, not stress and let it happen naturally. I was just wondering if there was a inexpensive way to try to track when I am ovulating? I have been taking my Basal temp. but I don't wake up at the same time every day so it's not accurate. Any suggestions would be great! I had an IUD in for almost 3 years and just had it out on the 22nd. I'm excited about starting a family but I don't want to spend a bunch of money on ovulation kits, because I think I would become a slave to the tests, stress about it and that can't be good for me or a baby either.
I was on the pill for about 2 years and have now been off it for about 3 months the past 2 months I got my period on the regular 28 day cycle Now this month im 12 days late took 2 home pt both negative and went to dr for a blood test also negative. What could be wrong? my dr told me to wait til next month to see if i get my period but im too nervous to wait that long.View Thread
