Needing to talk

Postby MacGregor16 » Sat Dec 30, 2017 7:40 pm

I am looking for women to talk to who are TTC, roughly close to my age, having the same issues or different issues. Who are also looking to talk about them and hopefully even become friends! I am almost 21 yrs old, I know still a baby everyone says that, I'm married (military spouse, just in case there are other military spouses who wanna talk) m , we have been trying for a baby for over a year with no luck. Irregular periods but here lately they have been solid at 44 days in a cycle, haven't used ovulation tests or strips although I am looking into them hopefully to get a better idea of my cycle.

It is frustrating when it feels like literally everyone is getting pregnant but me, some of my own family pregnant. As well as people who I haven't spoke to in years make it a point to message me out of everyone to say guess what I'm pregnant. It bothers me but all I can do is smile. Then people with kids tell me just to relax it will happen, how can I relax when this something I want more than anything in the world? I get jealous and upset, so I feel bad because I know it must of been so hard for them to but they make it seem so easy. I want to be able to relax, it's just easier said then done.

Any who reply, or whatever maybe we can talk and be friends, I will be happy to chat.
Thanks for reading!:D

Hello and welcome.Any other symptoms of PCOS besides the irregular periods?
If you have been sexual relationships regularly in this year my opinion is to chart and use opks for 3 more cycles and if nothing happens go see a doctor.
For someone as young as yourself no pregnancy in one year of trying it means something is off or not..I don’t want to worry you for nothing.
Watching everyone else get pregnant is definitely very hard...I hope you get your bfp very soon.
Good luck!

Out of all honesty I have no clue what PCOS is I will have to look it up and I haven't been diagnosed with anything. I have already seen a doctor he did blood work (for hormone levels) and said everything was normal even though I missed my period by 2 whole weeks. He said next step is to go see a specialist, but recommends my husband gets tested first which hasn't been done yet. He hasn't even seen a doctor, I know I am overweight which can be a contributing factor or so I have been told. Losing weight is harder than it seems, and dieting sucks.
I have had a mass or cyst on my ovaries before and I haven't notified of on since that one. I went in for an "ultrasound" to see if I had one again because I was told I did but no I didn't thank God. I had to have surgery last time.
We have pretty regular or frequent sexual relations, with no condoms, "pulling out", or anything of that nature. I am planning on doing what you recommend about the OPK's and if everything fails suck it up and see a specialist (really don't want to, and be told I'm "infertile" then get upset"). Thank you for responding by the way.

Hi MacGregor,

One thing that really helped me determine ovulation (along with some cheap OPK strips I found on Amazon) was cervical mucus, sometimes abbreviated as CM. I highly recommend researching about the different stages. That, along with OPK strips will really help you pinpoint your ovulation.

Good luck to you!

I will have to use CM as well as the OPK. Thanks and you too!
