A little background. I’m 26 (soon to be 27) and DH and I are going to start TTC in the next couple of months. When I was younger I always had sporadic/irregular periods (I would go 3 months without a period sometimes and be totally normal another time). I never really thought too much about it as I always stayed on top of my regular paps and everything and chalked it up to being extremely thin and stress (I lost my father unexpectedly when I was 15 and neeless to say it was a pretty stressful/wild couple of years after that). I went on BC when hubby and I started dating (about 6 years ago) and had regular periods ever since. I chose to come off of BC in October to try and get myself on track with ovulating since we wanted to start trying in the coming year. I had one normal period as soon as coming off (a little over a month) and then went THREE months with nothing. Needless to say it was worrisome and I had 2 paps and an ultrasound to confirm nothing serious was going on (cysts, etc.) and everything came back perfectly normal. After the 3 month cycle I had another normal cycle and am 90% sure I ovulated. Well here we are again and I’m just coming off of another 75+ day cycle and I’m 100% sure I didn’t ovulate. Is it possible that only one of my ovaries is functioning and that’s why I go every other cycle with a normal period? And if so, has anyone been in the same boat and gotten pregnant?
Irregular periods in younger years until I got on BC to regulate it.
Came off of BC in October.
First period off BC in November (just over a month).
3 months no period until Feb.
Normal period (32 days) in March – 90% sure of ovulation.
No period again until end of May (75ish days – 100% of no ovulation).
Have had 2 paps and an ultrasound and everything appears normal.
Possibly only ovulating properly from 1 ovary?
Has anyone else experienced anything similar and gotten pregnant?
Any advice is surely appreciated! I’m trying to stay positive and not stress myself too much. 🙂
