Hi I have been ttc for 6 months. I have had many "phantom" pregnacies during this time and it has now got to the point where I am so disheartened. I came off the pill 6 months ago and have had af each month, not always 28 days but have had done. My skin has started flaring up the last few months (like it used to before I was on the pill). Before and during the time I was taking the pill whenever I had AF I would have extreme pain without the pill, uncomfortabel still with the pill-since coming off the pill especially the last few months I have had no pain whatsoever-I wouldn't know I had AF except for the visual sign (if you catch my drift)-no PMT, no cramps now and then I just get some lower back pain and that is about all. I am so confused-we have just bought ovulation strips and we will see what happens. Me and hubby are so down about things, especially at this time of year-we were hoping I'd be at least 3 months gone and were going to tell people over Christmas. This is now not going to happen. What is going on? I am confused as well of fed up of trying now-I just can't put my heart into it anymore because I am becoming so despondent.
