I've got to be here

Postby loveandmarriage » Mon May 13, 2013 7:23 pm

This board is quieter than the general board but I need more people who understand long term infertility. We are currently waiting on DHs SA (5/20) and then lab, u/s, and SA results on 5/21. Been trying so long starting to get depressed. If no luck this cycle we are taking a break. Need some time off. Problem is when we take a break then I feel bad because I'm not doing all I can.

:( sorry enthusiasm. That's horrible.

Well its CD 2 for me. The craziest cycle I have ever had is officially over. I Oed on cd34 (typically only have 30 dc and O between cd11-19). Then started af at 9dpo. Fx this cycle behaves normally. I have made a tough decision and decided after this cycle I am done for awhile. Af is now then have a appt next week to get results from test. I will continue to chart this cycle but when AF comes agsin I am done for a while. No more charting, symptom spotting, I don't think ill even get on this site for an entire month. Hoping that this cycle is it but if AF shows next time I am taking at least a month vacay from all of this. Have so much other stress lately plus I'm fixing to go back to work. I need a vacay from ttc.

Well the craziness continues. Yet another 3 day AF. Been having 3 day AFs since February. Idk what's going on. Normally have 5-7 day medium-heavy flows. Now these 3 day AFs. I'm confused. Definitely talking to doc about all of this ob tuesday. 3 day AFs then last cycle I Oed CD34 and only had a 9 day lp. Typically O cd11-19 and have a 18 day lp. My body needs to straighten out so I can get that bfp.
