Can someone help I really need advice

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Lately I have been really tired, like sleep at night and by afternoon I feel like I could lay down and take a nap. Also my boobs are sore, started with just the nipples but now the breasts themselves are sore, though they don't look any different (at least I don't think so). A little bit of nausea through out the day and slight dizziness. Stomach cramps and what feels like butterflies. Also i have been having more frequent bowl movements. Usually before AF I get the nipple soreness but not anything further. My cycles have never been all that reliable so not really sure where I am at exactly. Last started on 4-24-2012. I am 22 and me and my husband have been trying for almost 2 years now with no positive results. Took a pregnancy test on 7-26-2012 and it was negative. someone please help I am thinking maybe I should just go to the Dr and ask for an ultrasound to see whats going on.

Did I read correctly that you've not had a period since April 24? If so, I think that warrents a trip to the doctor, maybe an RE as you've been trying to get pregnant for 2 years. I know when my period is late I tend to have worse pms than usual, but nearly 4 months is a loooong cycle, which probably means you aren't ovulating regularly.

I would go see a midwife or OB/GYN for sure. I hope you figure out what's going on soon!

Have you consulted your gyn/midwife or even regular doctor about why you aren't getting pregnant? Do you chart or temp to get an idea of what is going on? Of course I can't diagnose you but the lack of regular periods sounds like PCOS or something else causing you to not ovulate. You can't get pregnant if you don't ovulate. there are a lot of medications you can take to help with PCOS or jump start ovulation. You might want to read Taking Charge of Your Fertility by Toni Weschler to get an idea of how it's all supposed to work so you have some jumping off points when you talk to your doctor. 

 

Best of luck to you!

I agree -- I would read Taking Charge of Your Fertility, and schedule an appointment with a midwife or ob/gyn. When I was your age, I also had crazy long cycles, and could go months without ovulating (sometimes having break through bleeding). When we wanted to conceive our first son, it drove me crazy not knowing where I was in my cycle, and all of the traditional wisdom of when women ovulate didn't apply to me. I discovered an online forum (back when they were first getting started), and someone recommended TCOYF -- the book changed my life, literally. I started charting and following my cm and cervical changes, and discovered my patterns. My first son was conceived on cd (cycle day) 101 of the first cycle after I read the book. If I hadn't been taking my temperature, I would have given up long before I ever ovulated. I discovered that my luteal phase (the 2 weeks after you ovulate) was normal and consistent, but that my pre-ovulatory hormones were perhaps a bit out of whack.

 

At any rate, I had a healthy and happy 9 months, and a beautiful baby boy. My pregnancy seemed to have regulated my hormones for the most part, as we went on to have 3 more babies, and my cycles have been fairly normal and regular ever since (I now ovulate around day 20 which is later than average, but much better than day 101!).

 

Good luck!!
