- Wedding: July 2012
Once again I come to the Bees for help 🙂 This is long and a bit confusing so I thank you in advance for reading and if you have a hard time following or have any questions let me know! I tried to give every detail I could think of…
I was having issues with bleeding during sex while I was on the pill. I found out it could have been due to the high level of progesterone affecting my cervix. I would also have spotting 2 days before my period due date. I stopped taking the pill last October because we were planning on TTC in a couple of months. My cycles were a few days long in the begining (29-34 days) but nothing too crazy and then they were about 30 days avg. The bleeding during sex stopped but I would still have spotting a few days before my period would arrive. I started taking Vitex about 2 months ago to regulate the spotting since I read that it could be problematic to have spotting during your luteal phase when TTC. Everything went fine until this cycle where all hell broke loose…
On 3/9 (one week after my supposed ovulation, I say supposed because I wasn’t temping but all the signs were there) I had a bit of cramping and a tiny bit of red on my CM which I had never ever seen before. I got a bit of hope and thought maybe it was implantation bleeding since we BDed 2 days before ovulation BUT the evil aunt flow showed up on 3/17 and lasted until 3/20. Then on 3/25-3/27 I had cramps, spotting and light bleeding again. I though I would not worry too much since these things happen sometimes but then AGAIN 4/2 I get the cramping, spotting and yesterday and today the bleeding. My period is not due for another 11 days. I don’t think I’ve ovulated because of all the bleeding but shame on me for this being the one month that I took a break from temping!
Also, to add to the mix, I’m switching doctors and already made the appointment with the new one but it’s not until May 24th 🙁 because they are booked since they are highly rated. My current doctor failed to identify that the bleeding was due to my BC pills (for 6 years!! of me complaining to her) and didn’t even make me try other ones to see if anything else worked for me. She has not given me any info on TTC. As a matter of fact when I was there to let her know I was stopping the pills she didn’t even do a pap smear and just gave me a coupon for prenatal vitamins which made me want to switch. The only good thing about her is that they can give you appointments within a week.
what do you ladies think? I’m so worried I did more harm than good by taking Vitex and confused with all these symptoms.
Can you also vote on which doctor I should call if you vote for the doctor option.
Thank you soooo much ladies!! you never fail me!
