Hello. I just want to ask if anyone here has the same experience with mine? I have a very irregular period and I don't know when is the exact date of my ovulation. My partner and I has been trying for more than a year now and everytime we try, we end up disappointed because everytime I tried pregnancy test, the results always came as negative. And I think the reason why I have hormonal imbalance is because I'm underweight. And now I'm trying to gain weight because according to my research it could help me. Now Im gaining weight and having spotting that is brownish in colour. I don't know if my period is coming or it's because of implantation (which im really hoping that it is really because of implantation). My last period was on march 28. Is there any women here who has irregular period but already have a child? If yes, what did you do for you to get pregnant? Because i really really really want to have a child. 😭🙏🏻

Hi ☺ i would suggest getting some ovulation tests, there are bulk lots sold on e bay, like 20 for $5 or similar, then you can try and pin point when you're ovulating. Also i would say for you and your husband to go to your Dr and explain you have tried for 12mths but have had no luck and can he run some tests on you both and go from there.

Agree you need to figure out when, and if, you're ovulating.
The strips never worked for me, but you can get a saliva tester (Maybe Baby) which will tell you. Cervical mucous is also a very good indicator.
Also, trying for a year with no result is enough to get a GP referral to a specialist. They can do additional blood work etc to make sure there isn't something else going on. You mention you're underweight, have you had your thyroid checked?

Definitely get the ovulation tests and start tracking your cycle (there's some really great apps for that)
I was trying for a few months and assumed I ovulated in the 'standard' timeframe wasn't until I got the ovulation kit I realized I ovulate late and was dtd at the wrote times.

I'd go and see a specialist. Better to get a full and clear picture of the situation then keep being disappointed each month. If ovulation is a problem then they can help with that

I have heard the ovulation strips won't work if someone has PCOS which is an interesting point to take on board if you have no luck with them.
If you get your baseline tests done with your Dr then you have something to go off and can ask for referral to a fertility specialist if necessary or look for one yourselves that you may think fits you guys and ask for a referral to that one too.
It's always good to be able to compare what each says and have a choice

Do you have pcos or do you think you might have it? If you haven't been tested then get tested for it.
Ovulation wee tests don't tend to work with pcos. Also they might not work as you might not be ovulating.

I'd go get checked fully at a fertility clinic...you may have pcos. They can help you with ovulation induction.
I am overweight with severe pcos and extremely irregular periods and absolutely no idea if i ovulate or not. My hormones are out of whack. Anyways took 3.5 years and i got pregnant naturally. Now 5 years later still . not pregnant. Am trying to lose weight and have a better life style as no clinic will help me at my weight at the moment.
If you have been trying for 1 year don't wait any longer go get checked.

I wouldn't wait, it can't hurt to go to your GP and get some basic tests.
I had and irregular cycle and went to the gp and was diagnosed with pcos, however we threw in a sperm test and it came back that my partner had an extremely low count and that's why we couldn't get pregnant.

Have you tried testing for ovulation? I would test using several methods - strips, bbt charts, cm. record it all in an app like fertility friend. This takes time but will help your GP/specialist to get an idea what's going on. They will also do tests but it all takes time as its specific to your cycle dates and it may be months before you can get an appt to see a specialist.
So book an appt and test and track ovulation data while you wait.
It could just be bad luck and no major problem. I have irregular periods with no PCOS etc and have had 2 successful pregnancies. Good luck!
