So my hubby and I are trying for our first baby and have been for 14 months with in success.
I was on the contraceptive pill for 9 years without a break and I always went on a health kick and lost 26.4kg to get my body healthy and ready for a baby but I hadn't got my period for 5 months so I went to the Gp to find out what was going on and they told me it was normal and to come back in 2 months if I hadn't got my period yet...
So 7 months had gone by and I went back to the doctors to get an answer. They did a blood test and told me that my levels were slowly going back up and I should get my period within the month. So that didn't happen either. I went to a different doctor who did some blood tests and told me that I wasn't ovulating at all and referred me to a FS. I booked in but had to wait 4.5 months.
While waiting I bought a home ovulation kit off of the Internet and started using that.
I finally saw the FS and she was great!! She did an internal ultrasound and told me that everything looks good, the Pap smear, booked me in to get a blood test and I have to get a HSG X-ray. The week after I had the very exciting news that I was ovulating so if course hubby and I were excited and trying(we had also has sex two days before and the day before). I got a blood test to confirm I was ovulating and to have it on record.
To this day I have only had my period twice in the last 14 months. One was for one day in October and the other was 5 weeks later for a week in November but that is it.
So I've done a preg test and it has come back negative but I'm waiting for my period so I can go and get the hsg X-ray done.
But because I don't have regular periods I don't know when I'll be able to do that and I have already had a change my FS appointment because of this. I don't know if I should just go back to the FS and tell her I haven't been able to get the X-ray.
The FS was also talking about putting me medication to bring on my ovulation. It's just hard to predict when I'll be ovulating...
But fingers crossed everything will work out soon!! I'm hubby and I are just trying to be positive but some days are hard and I just want to cry but I bet a lot of people feel like that.
