TTC after Depo
I can relate to your problem. My last Depo shot was in Dec. and I am coming off of it now. I have done alot of reading on pregnancy after depo and reading all the stories can get to you. I have friends that have come off and gotten preggers in 2-6 months so I guess it just depends on your body. Just a note I have done alot of reading on Vitex and Evening Promise oil and I have been taking them for about a 3 weeks or so. Vitex is an herb and it is very popular for people having trouble with O and AFs returning after depo. Look it up online you will find a lot about it. I am hoping that it will help get my hormons in line and bring me an AF sooner that 6-18 months.
Keep in touch I would love to here your progress as I am in the same boat.
Well im apparently now 7dpo, doesnt feel like it tho. We have boycotted this month and had a break. The ultrasound is not too far away now which is good. Kinda anxious about it but im glad its being done.
This cycle has been a bit strange... its like my body has known i was taking a break as i dont have any of the symptoms i normally have. Its nice to feel normal for while.
well i only have one more day until my ultrasound, kinda nervous but happy coz i know i need this. AF is due tomorrow which is good. ive been awaiting its arrival and i have just started getting my symptoms YAY! its been nice not worrying about anything this month and just going with the flow. I think i needed it. im heading out to melb for easter which will be a nice relaxing break, i cant wait!!
My ultrasound is done!!
The nurse who did the ultrasound said shes not really supposed to tell me what she finds if she finds anything but she was really nice n told me everything anyway!
Everything is very very normal!! no pcos, no cysts no nothing! i was over the moon.
She said she actually wished more people would get checked out earlier rather than waiting a year before starting to have tests done. Because then if there was something to be concerned about they could start investigating it straight away.
I must say i am so relieved that everything is completely normal and now all i have to do is play the waiting game and need some luck :)
Well today i have come home to a very plesant looking + OPK. Im very excited as we missed last cycle and it kinda feels good to be back on the bandwagon. Although somehow i think BDing is out of the question. DH is on nightshift and for some reason he is always rather testy in the evenings. I guess he never was much of a morning person.
So now i guess i have to live in hope that maybe, like some freak of nature, the BDing of Sunday night has a few survivors on board that havent yet abandoned ship.
Unless of course the sky opens up and the heavens shine upon me and DH will totally surprise me by actually wanting to BD tonight. But for some reason i think the first option will somehow win.
Well i hate to say it but i was right... No the sky did not open up and No the heavens did not shine upon me. O day went out the window at a fast rate of knots.
Day 18 I was still having o pain durning the day... but by the time i got home and tested (negative OPK mind u) the pain was gone.
Even so i was so sweet to DH and he knew exactly what i wanted, needless to say i must have very good negotation skills as i got what i wanted.
So here i am holding onto the hope that it wasnt too late and that somehow my lil eggy was caught by some quick swimmers. Kinda reminds me of something out of the jaws movie, when the shark circles and circles its prey. i just hope one of the many swimmers in the ocean was hungry and took a bite!
But now all i can do is wait. Whats done is done. if it happens this cycles then all well and good. If it doesnt then so be it. Im not going to continue to pin all my hopes on it month by month. I intend to take it as it comes.
Lets just hope the next two weeks passes quickly, even though i do have the feeling deep down that this is not my cycle. No harm holding onto a little hope right?
well the fat lady is singing this cycle... its so hard to try n keep sane doing this over and over again. Will it ever end?
