After a long 13 months, I finally get to post on here! :)
I'm 23 and my husband will be turning 24 this year. We have had a long ttc journey, but it has all been worth it!
I started having problems with endo and ovarian cysts when I was 14 years old. I was diagnosed when I was 17 but didn't have any official surgeries to confirm until last year (2012). I ended up having 3 surgeries last year (February, August, and November). I had large ovarian cysts removed as well as endo. My doctor told us we needed to try our hardest to get pregnant asap or it might not ever happen.
We started ttc March of 2012. But, my cycles were completely irregular from being on BCP as well as being on Lupron for 6 months.
Anyways, I'll get right to the point and post my symptoms throughout my TWW.
This month, we did things differently. For starters, I started taking Vitex to help regulate my cycle (WHICH IT HELPED!-I ovulated way sooner, some months I wouldn't ovulate until CD 33, but this time it was CD 20). I was also taking B6, super b complex, and baby aspirin-- as well as prenatals. I also used a Clearblue Fertility Monitor this cycle as well.
