Some background information…
I stopped the Nuvaring on May 14, got my period a few days later, as usual, and had a regular 30-day period in June.
In july, I had a 40-day cycle, period late by 10 days. After I got my period, I went to see my OBGYN and he recommended ultrasound and blood test to see if everything was normal. I went today for my results, and thankfully, everything looks pretty good. Doctor said he does not see a reason that could prevent me from getting pregnant. But he does not understand why I had such a long cycle.
Here is what he suggested:
Expect this cycle to be 40 days or shorter (If I get to the 41st day without period, he will prescribe something to induce my period.)
Then, I will get on birth control for 3 months to regulate my periods. On the 4th month, he will monitor ovulation by blood test and ultrasound to make sure I am ovulating.
He did say that this protocol is used for people who have been trying for close to a year. But he does not what to “waste any time.” I’m not sure what that meant given that Im only 26.
I’m very fortunate to have my tests come back normal. However, I feel sad because if I don’t get pregnant this month, I will have to wait 3 months before we start trying again.
This month, I was temping and using OPKs as of yesterday. Now, I just want to forget we are even trying. I feel like I’m out, even though Im only on CD11. I don’t want to force it, I really want my pregnacy to happen naturally. But it is just so hard not to be hoping.
PS: I do understand it is very early and there are people that have been trying for years (if you are one, hugs for you).
