7 months and 1 period

Postby amymariedon » Tue Apr 16, 2013 5:44 pm

Hi, I'm new here and someone directed me to this website so that I could find some support.

I lost my son 7 months ago to pregnancy complications, maybe due to my severe preeclampsia or because his kidneys were always failing. Well, I got 8 days with him, and then made the decision to stop medical treatment, because as his mom, I knew he was in so much pain and was fighting a battle that was becoming too hard for his tiny little body. The fact he lived 8 days was a miracle in itself. Does that make it easier? Nope, but sometimes it does give me hope.

But now, I am ready to start trying again, and I don't get a period. I never really got a regular period, but was on the pill, and everyone said that it was fine. I still got my period, but it was every few months, a few times a year.

Now, I'm on CD 96, and I don't know what to do. I'm going to my doctor beginning of May.

I really want to be a mom, and walk out of the hospital with a baby to love, not just a baby in heaven.

I take my BBT every morning, and it is all over the place. I am attempting accupuncture in hopes to regulate my body on its own without medicine, but I will do it all at once if I have too.

Thanks in advance!

I just want to say that I am so sorry for your loss. I can't imagine going through that, but am sending my prayers and positve thoughts your way.

I also have regular cycles with my longest at 60 days. From what my doctor says, 60 days is the most they will let it go without inducing your period. I would try to get into your doctor sooner rather than later.

I also have done accupuncture and absolutely loved it. I don't know if it has regulated my cycle (yet), but it certainly has helped balanced me.

I have started testing this month with CD3 bloodwork, and HSG today and will do Progesterone testing after ovulation.

Good luck and baby dust to you!!

Hi, so sorry about your struggles. My husband and I have a 5 year old son and have been ttc for 3 years for #2. I have about 3 periods a year, last year I took progesterone for 3 months to induce bleeding and did opks but never ovulated. Just started vitex hoping it would help and started my period within 2 weeks! My last period was 5 months ago. Very hopeful now that I will ovulate. It's good to try to stay positive, but damn hard sometimes.
