RAFwife I understand how you're feeling completely. We have done 12 months NTNP followed by 6 cycles of BDing on the right days (I temp) and still no luck I get hopeful every cycle knowing we done it at the right time then when AF approaches I really struggle lately. We're both 26 and both fit and healthy, slim etc. I am currently seeing a fertility specialist now though . I know 6 months feels like such a long time but it really isn't, just keep your chin up and try to remain positive... good things come to those who wait :-)
I went to my GP wondering if I had pcos, as I have irregular cycles and I think I have a little excess hair (but that may just be because I am dark). My GP told me that I am too slim to have it and only overweight/obese people have it but done blood tests and a pelvic exam anyway. I asked him which cycle day I should get bloods done and he said it didn't matter - results came back normal.
However he then referred me to a specialist and on my initital appt with the specialist he said it is very likely that I do have polycystic ovaries if I have irregular periods and that it is different from the syndrome. He was not happy that my GP told me I didn't have it based on my weight and apparently it doesn't always show in bloods, as it depends on the severity.
He arranged for me to get a HSG test done to check tubes, ultrasound of my ovaries etc and blood tests on days 3 and 21. I have had all the tests done and I am going back on 09 May for a diangosis and to see if I need to go on Clomid.
I got my first appointment date through quite quickly and then the follow up appt will be 3 months after the date of the first appt with all the other tests being carried out in between the two.
I'm definitely glad that I've took the step to try and see if anything is wrong.
Know its probably to early to tell anything, but would y'all mind taking a peek at my chart?
chart progressing nicely, looks like you are gearing up to ovulate like me. how are you feeling this cycle? i need to get some bding in but we'Re both tired. cd11 so need to hurry up! good luck!
Thank you hun! I feel pretty good this cycle, hopeful. I've seemed to have a lot more energy this cycle I'm glad someone finally said something other than "its too early to tell anything." That's all any of the other girls in the other thread I post in will ever say. Thinking about just not posting there anymore. Good luck to you too, Gemmy!!
Thats not what my GP told me he told me its 1 of the main reasons
AF can be delayed and also alot of health websites say it too its not
impossible stress can change your cycle aswell like if you have a heavy cycle
and then a light one or if you have spotting instead of a flow.. (its not always
the case it could be a number of other things) buts its not to be ruled out i
had a number of tests done quite awhile ago and the reason my flow keept
being late was due to stress
Well then he doesn't know his stuff, hun. GPs chat a lot of rubbish, I know my one does.
Like I said, your LP is pretty much fixed. It can vary by a few days, but nothing more. Ovulation can be delayed by stress, which in turn makes AF late, but once you ovulate, stress is not going to delay your period. How can it? Your body won't produce progesterone forever, and it's the progesterone decreasing that causes the uterine lining to shed and AF to start. The corpus luteum has to die sometime, and it won't stay alive for stress.
