I'd like to scream this same question too. It was just so ironic to experience my 45 day cycle of miserable symptoms my first month TTC when I've been at 31 days and light symptoms for years now. Now at CD 9, been temping this cycle and using some natural supplementation, keeping my chin up I guess.

I sense a group funk here right now. Too many losses and no BFP''s as of yet. I am thinking of you all right now and so thankful this little mini-community exists to share our feelings when most IRL folks wouldn't relate to our current journeys. Be kind to yourselves. joy.gif That's me throwing some love around for all of us sans big goofy grin of course.

Ugg, on another note, I need to BD tonight, tomorrow night, and the next night. Probably should have last night, but didnt even want to talk to my DH let alone be in the same bed with him. He works A LOT, and I understand that, but damn, when you are not working, can I at least be a priority? You know, before your ex's issues, the 3 million texts you get, WOW, and the freaking guys??? I told him I refuse to be the kind of GF who demands or begs him to spend time with me. So, of course on his one night off all month, he stays home, out of guilt. No, that doesnt count. YOU MADE PLANS TO GO WITH THE GUYS....me having to say something doesnt count:( I guess I just need to suck it up and get neked... pfft, :(  Fertility friend gave me cross hairs this am, but I know its not right:( I know I havent O'd yet, its just my screwy temps:( http://www.fertilityfriend.com/home/4975ae

 

Ive asked this question on other boards but really didnt get an answer.... anyone deal with Low T, and their DH on the Andro patch? Does Low T affect TTC? Ive tried googling it, but still havent gotten a definite answer. 

 

It is sad that we havent had any BFP's this month:( I know if we dont get the egg this month, we will not be trying until Jan, as my angel son Jacobs b-day is Sept 19th, and I would be scared to death of going into labor accidental that day, it would never be ok:( Hopefully we get it this month tho!!!

So I'm freaking out that something is wrong another -OPK today faint line even less then yesterday when I had EWCM. No CM today so now I'm really freaking out that maybe I don't O or that the faint line yesterday was my + and now we've lost our chance to try IUI this month. I need good news at my ultrasound tomorrow or I think I'll just cry. I feel like the Hanukkah gift I got hubby is just pointless if we don't try this month. I think I lost all my positive feels.
post #325 of 348
3DPO what's with the EWCM? Makes me second guess myself.

I'm not fertile. :energy

 

My body has been trying so hard, unsuccessfully, to ovulate. I think this AF might have actually hit a reset button in my ovaries so I'm actually starting at the beginning of a cycle at the beginning of my cycle. Of course this means I may ovulate before my baby making window opens. We're still trying to avoid August due dates (and due dates within a week of August). That means I'd be cutting it too close ovulating anywhere before CD 25, which is late even for my PCOS standards.

post #327 of 348
  • WifeofAnt that is really great news:) My FF put me at 5 dpo today, and a O at CD 9, which just cannot be true. I also learned some things about the Andro patch my DH is on for Low T, bad news. so we have put off TTC until January, to give his body a chance to get the fake T out of his system, and get him on some HCG shots, to help us TTC. We would try next month, but my due date would be my angel son Jacobs birthday, and i just cannot emotionally go through a pregnancy knowing that. Ill still hang out, and will hopefully be joining a birth group in January or February:)

 We are also finding out if his insurance covers transplants, but if not, he get s a bonus in March, as well as taxes, so we can always use that money to have it done:)

 

On a sad note, he feels just horrible about all of this, it started with the ability to not be able to BD, and that was rough, now he knows he is the reason we cannot have a baby right now, and it hurts him so much:( Im making light of it in front of him, telling him the next couple months will give us a chance top get uber healthy before TTC again, and hoping that makes him feel batter. When he isnt home tho, I cry:(

Just came back from the doctor. She wants me off the progesterone since it's messing with my cycles. She was just as shocked as everyone else with the 14 day cycle. DH and I have a lot to talk about. I think we'll still go ahead with trying but our Dr situation here is so bad I could end up going back home to deliver (16-18hr drive) or to the town 2.5 hrs away where we know nobody. And if I am allowed to deliver here (an anesthetic/BMI thing) I may see a different dr for every appointment which I'm not ok with. Only one doctor here is not doing that. And my doctor is heavily pregnant and going on mat leave at the end of Dec. She's supposed to have a Locum but doesn't know if the Locum will be here for the whole leave and she doesn't know if *she* is coming back either. Which is scarey as well. I have Dr aniexty issues and I really really like her.

So back to no meds and simply trying on our own. Slowly starting to feel better but not fully greensad.gif

That's a lot to think about! I have considered using the prog cream, but was afraid it could mess with my cycles. Think I'll pass for sure now. Only reason I wanted to try was bc I usually have low prog after BFP. I also fear tho that if I do get a BFP with a non viable pregnancy, that the extra prog will just prolong the sad inevitable....

AFM: question....anyone ever feel a bit irritated down there after coming off period? I've had tons of BV issues in the past. But it's been a lot better in the past year or so. But I always feel like my PH is off after my period. And when we BD right after AF is done, I feel like it kind of hurts. Just a little. Part of me even wonders if it's just in my head cause I'm so scared it's gonna hurt. KWIM? Or maybe I'm tense cause of the fear, which is what actually makes it hurt? Anywho...AF is gone and we're back in the saddle...DH better get prepared cause we are going to try extra hard this month. If we have another episode like last month where we only "try" one time 4-5 days prior to O, I might just strangle him. Today is CD7, well technically 8 now that it's 12:55am...glad to get rid of old sperm and put "fresh troops" on the front line. Lol!

Oh yah, wifeofant, have you talked to dr about your anovulatory cycles? That has got to be SOOOO frustrating! Would you consider clomid or other drugs? Have you considered PCOS? I swear I'm not trying to diagnose everyone with PCOS! Starting to sound that way! Obviously there are other causes, that's just the main one I hear about...
post #330 of 348

AFM, please move me to TWW, or waiting to know, if by some miracle we happened to have caught it this month, tho I dont have m hopes up.  Thank you:)

There's really nothing I can do at the moment. Even if we did try Clomid, I have no guarantee that my lining isn't still being affected by any remaining Depo Provera. If I'm still not ovulating by February, then it would be at such low levels it might/should not even be detectable anymore and then we could start thinking about Clomid or something. We really don't want twins though. Clomid is practically our ceiling anyway. Our insurance only covers treatments for "natural conception". So far we're just going to wait and see what happens.

 

Edited to add: I know I have PCOS. I was diagnosed in 2009 but I still ovulated, although not "like clockwork". It didn't stop me from conceiving DS, although it may have given me an oversupply once he was born.

post #332 of 348
wifeofant: it's my understanding that clomid doesn't increase chances of multiples. I took it with first child - just bc we'd been trying for a year. But in hindsight, I don't think I needed it. Well, obviously since I've gotten pregnant 5 times since then....I forgot about the Depo too.

One things for sure, when my daughters get to the age they should consider BC, I'm going to tell them every horror story I've heard of every type of BC! So many women get on certain types bc it's right for them at the time, without realizing the repercussions when they're ready to get off BC. Do you wish you'd never taken that kind before? Sometimes I'm afraid my ectopic was somehow caused by my IUD. Probably not, but I'd probably never use an IUD again.

Clinical trials for clomid had a twinning rate of 7%. Being under 25 is supposed to be a risk factor for it too (I'm 24). Overall, the rate of twins is 3%. I've been reading that a few women will refuse to continue the cycle if they get more than on follicle to develop. I guess that's a good plan of action if things get to that.

Anyone testing today? I cannot believe it's the last day of Nov and not one BFP all month! Maybe that means there will be twice as many in Dec...

so, that's a 93% chance that you won't have twins...those are pretty good odds. But you're SO young! You still have many years that you could try and not worry about medical or pharmaceutical intervention. I didn't realize you were so young! You've got plenty of time to have more babies!

Here's hoping!  Geesh!  

 

WifeofAnt- I agree, you are so young (unlike me, approaching 37).  But I get it, when you want a baby, you want a baby!  It's hard to not have that happen when your heart is longing for that little one.

Two years! What a struggle! Welcome. Hate to sound abrupt, but I'd quit TTC with whomever gave you an STD! That's my advice! As for tube damage, can you get an HSG (the dye test)?
