I’m so sorry you’re going through this!  I don’t know a lot, but there are two things I can say.  First, if you have not already, take a pregnancy test!  Second, really just an FYI, ovulation pains do not necessarily switch back and forth by month, it is just than on average it equals out (like flipping a coin-you would not be surprised to see heads twice in a row, but over a lot of flips you’d expect half heads).  I hope you get answers soon!  Our bodies can be so strange.

I know how you feel. I also stopped taking BCP in May of 2013. My husband and I started TTC right away. When I was on the pill my cycle was every 28-29 days. After getting off of the pill, I have had maybe 4 periods. I was diagnosed by blood test with PCOS in Sept./Oct 2013. My OB put me on Metformin and sent me on my way. My cycle after using Metformin was 45 days so I got excited that maybe they were starting to get more regular. However during that time I was temping and using OPKS. I never ovulated according to FF but I did have some pretty close to +OPKs. It was maddening. I explained to my OB that I did not think I was ovulation. She assured me that if I was getting a period, then I was ovulating. I knew better then this so I made a call to go see a RE. I went to see him 2 weeks ago and in 2 weeks I have gotten more answers then the last 9 months. I was told yes, I do have PCOS. He took blood and did an U/s which showed my ovaries covered in the typical PCOS pearl necklace. He gave me provera to induce my period. Yesterday was CD1 for me. I go in tomorrow to check to make sure my lining has thinned out enough. Since I did not hvae a period for so long, my lining was very thick which is not good. 

I hope by telling you all of this, that I didn’t scare you or freak you out. I just wanted you to know that if you feel you aren’t getting answers, do not be afarid to switch doctors or seek a second opinion. 

Please keep us updated on the situation! Best of luck to you!

NJlady123:  Start temping! It’s really the best thing you can do to figure out what’s going on with your body. You’ll start to see patterns and possibly get a better understanding of what to expect form one cycle to the next. Join Fertility Friend (it’s free) and Charters of the Hive here on WB. Good luck!

Definitely start temping, it will tell you if you are ovulating. I wouldn’t hesistate to dig deeper until you get a reason for the irregular cycles and low estrogen. It seems like with this stuff, if you see five doctors you might get five different answers. Good luck!
