ok, there’s a difference between not ovulating and having irreuglar periods. I can truthfully say that I haven’t been ovulating for the past four years (up until a few months, again, anyway).
To make certain your not ovulating without having to stay at the dr’s office, I’d suggest getting an OPT. You can get them pretty much anywhere in a range of prices.
Believe me, I can totally understand the frustration and disappointment. We’re on the “come what may” belief and, honestly, considering the weirdness that’s been going on, I’m wishing I’d just get pregnant so I can have a REASON for it! LOL.
Oh, and my dr’s said that I shouldn’t worry until after a YEAR of trying. Gee, thanks, Doc. that’s SO good to hear.
The only advice I can give are those tests and, well, waiting. It sucks, but, short of staying at the dr’s office, it’s the only thing I can think of.
🙁 sorry to hear you’ve gotta deal with such frustrations. just give it time, have fun, and try to not stress over it. and always follow the dr’s advice (or at least try to…)
eta: forgot to mention, we haven’t been using any “preventive” measures for the past 4 years, especially in the last year. the dr (when I went last) said I might not be ovulating and to not worry. Then, a few months ago, I started breaking out whenever I drink (wine, mixed, doesn’t matter… I break out horribly and haven’t had that problem in the last 4 years), my acne returned when I eat chocolate (which I hadn’t had a problem with in the last 4 years)… I know my body pretty well, and all this points to no ovulating before and now I am.
anywhos, thought it might be helpful….
