36 and ttc
I'm 36 and ttc child 3. I had very easy times getting pregnant at 26 & 29, but have been sort of diagnosed with pcos in the past two years. (Some doctors say I have it, others say I don't. Many more say I don't have it than do. I've been asking Drs if I had pcos since before my last pregnancy, and they all said I get pregnant too easily to have pcos... Now 2 docs at my practice said I might have it)
I have irregular periods, especially during stress. Last year (December 2013) I went off Prozac to start getting ready to ttc. Well... I started having anxiety problems a few months later, and my period was no show from April-September when I took provera.
Since then, I have had pretty regular periods, but unfortunately now I have a nasty ear infection that I have to take prednisone for. Which means- no ttc for a cycle, AND my period, either due to stress or medicine, is no show again!!
I'm stressing out that I won't be able to get pregnant. I'm sick over this, as putting off more kids was something we did on purpose. I'm now thinking, we should have ttc a year or two ago, not waited for "the perfect time".
Can anyone offer calming advice? My ear doctor specifically told me that prednisone might mess with my cycle, as I told him I was actively ttc. I think my best game plan is to wait for AF, wait March out, and then get AF in April and ttc then. (This is all in the hopes I get AF!!).
If AF doesn't show, maybe ask the on about more provera. If I can't get pregnant by the end of summer, then it's time to talk about Clomid.
