I'm brand new to this site, and I'm seeking help.
So here's my story:
I'm 21 and I have been TTC for about 11 months now. I know that 21 is young to start TTCing, but when you're ready you're body tells you. All I can think about is the beauty and joy of starting a family with my Husband to be. But everytime I go to a doctor they are absolutely no help at all. They are not solution driven, they are in fact more problimatic considering they cost money and don't really tell me anything I didn't really know.
My cycle is ALLLLLL over the place! It wasn't until I got on Birth Control when I was 15 then it's like all of the sudden my body just didn't want to have a period anymore. I don't bleed like normal women do, I get this weird brown thick spotting for like 3-7 days once every 24-90 days... there's no regularity to it what-so-ever and frankly I'm tired of doctors treating me like I am their child. None of them actually want to help me get pregnant, none of them offer tests, options, nothing. They continually explain to me what a period is and just say "Well the only way to regulate your cycles is to put you back on Birth Control" which in effect, defeats the purpose.
I started taking FertiBella 2 months ago and didn't have a period at all while on it. I decided to stop taking it, about 1 week later (3 days ago) my period came at me with a vengance... worst cramping of my life, bleeding so heavy I go through a tampon in an hour, nipples are so sore I can't even let the water touch them in the shower. Which 1/2 of me is glad that I feel this way because maybe my body is going to have a regular cycle after this, but the other part of me feels like this is a bit extreme.
Basically now I am sticking with Vitex and EPO (Evening Primrose Oil) hoping that will regulate me.
But I want answers, does anyone else have these types of symptoms? I was normal before I started Birth Control... now I'm all messed up.
Hopefully I can get some suggestions.
