TTC Advice and Tips
Ok so here's my story...I had to take vitex angus castus when I was a teenager to regulate(went from missing a very to regular but had long 31 day periods which I couldn't handle in college!! Then at about 17 I went on Levelen Ed(the pill), no longer requitred the Vitex angus castus. Took it as per instructions for about a year, then after I got with my boyfriend, took it straight and skipped my period. I'd get break through bleeding etc, ocassionally letting myself have a period... Then, now 31 years old, last November thought I was pregnant as I had accidentally skipped a few pills within a month. Got a very light period right on time on the third day off the pill. Since then I have decided my time is right to have a baby. Not sure if anyone else felt a rapid change in their mind but it was like a flicked switch, so I went off the pill in June(mid-late June). Three days after, got my period(light, easily managed).
In July, perfect timing, right on queue(of a typical 28 day cycle...5 day period), after a great sex session, got spotting-the type you guys talk about...wiping and you see it, barely anything else. The spotting continued all day, then nothing day 2, then spotting day 3. So 14-16 days later, did some ovulation tests. Got one very faint reading... had sex before and after these tests.
I am now 5 days late for my period. Have done 4 pregnancy tests. All negative. Now really worried that I should have had my irregular teen issues investigated...my intention is to retest in a fortnight...I'm trying to relax but I'm really excited, and nervous at the same time. I've been more mucousy than normal too :/ . Next step is to go back on Vitex Angus Castus. I'm terrified I'm infertile as I'm now 31, even though I have read the statistics. It seems very common to read about ppl coming off the pill, becoming pregnant after 2-3 months.
I have even been laying down after sex, clenching, pillow under bum etc!! Sorry if that's tmi!
Please cross your fingers for me.
