Does anyone else symtom spot? I get excited when I have cramps thinking that my period will be arriving soon. 5 months of on and off cramping and still nothing! I was having night sweats and hot flashes which have stopped since I began drinking the raspbery leaf tea. I also decided to take a break fron taking Vitex to let my body work things out naturally. I am in Canada and can’t locate Fertilitea.
Also, I have a girlfriend who was on Nuvaring for years and went off of it almost 2 years ago. She never got a period, saw doctors, had normal blood work, etc. and then just randomly got pregnant!
On Saturday was was surprised to see EWCM! I have had ZERO CM since I stopped BC. I have been on cold medication for a week and it seems like that has helped.
I also had an “almost” positive OPK on Jan 31st/Feb 1st and cramping! I BD’d like a champ just incase I did ovulate!
Maybe AF will finally arrive soon (or a BFP!) I will take what I can get!
I also got EWCM on Saturday and Sunday. All my ovulation tests have been negative so far, but we also BD’ed anyway. 🙂 Here’s hoping light at the end of the tunnel for us!!!
Have you done pregnitude yet? The fertility nurse at my dr. actually recommended it (they don’t sell it so I don’t think they get anything out of recommending it) .
I just went off the pill a bit less than 3 months ago but didn’t have this problem, but I took some natural supplements which I think helped my hormones balance quickly – Vitex (already on it I saw), Milk Thistle to clean the pill out of the liver, and Maca powder (I just drink a spoonful mixed into a smoothie each day) which also helps balance hormones. Maybe try these? Because you were on it for so long, it may just be taking your body longer than 3 months to adjust.
I stopped the pill right after the new year. I have been on birth control since I was 17, and I am 29 now. Prior to BC, I was always exactly 28 days. When I was 23ish and again when I was 26ish I briefly stopped the pill. I IMMEDIATELY returned to a 28 day cycle. This time, I have yet to have a period. I dont think it will take long to return to normal, but it certainly is different than before. I dont know if I am correct, but I am attributing it somewhat to age. I didnt think I needed to be off BC very long before TTC, but I am glad I followed my drs advice and stopped earlier.
What you are experiencing sounds quite long though. I would go back to the dr to verify that it is totally normal.
I have my blood test on Friday so I will update once the results come in.
Baby dust to us all!
Got a call from the doctors office saying that he wants to see me to discuss my blood test results. This makes me very anxious and a little sick to my stomach………At least I will know whats going on.
