Trying to Conceive


I had my period 16 days ago. I have been off the pill for nearly 1 year and been trying to conceive only since my last period. I am feeling nauseous today and have had tender breasts for a few days. I did a pregnancy test today and it was negative. Could it be too early to detect bHCG? Is it possible that i still may be pregnant? I know i will soon know, if my period does not come.

Impatient for over a week...not anymore:)

Ever since the morning after we started trying, I have been wanting to know if I was pregnant. We bought early tests that very weekend (5 days later LOL) and although I know you cant tell so early, I tried all 3 tests within the next 4 days. Of course, NEG. I even found myself getting discouraged. I kept reading how long it could take before a successfull attempt...blah blah...negative negative.

So Many Questions! We are Trying!

Hi! My husband and I have been off the pill for months and we made the decision to start trying for baby #2 recently! We looked at an ovulation calendar and going off the first day of my last period being Sept 23rd, my ovulation dates were Oct 4-9th. I took a pregnancy test today although I knew it may be a little early and it came out negative. Today I started bleeding and having period cramps.

Getting Pregnany

I have been off of my birthcontrol for about four months now and me and my boyfriend have been trying to conceive. I have been still getiing my period and I'm suppose to get it any day now, I am hoping that I don
't get it. How long does it usually take to conceive after coming off of birthcontrol (Yaz) that I have been taking rot 2 years now?

i know i'm young, and not financially prepared for a child. but it feels like i'll never have one, and its a horrible feeling. i dream almost every night about these beautiful infants that i get to hold and love on all i want because they are mine and then i wake up, realize it was only a dream, and cry there with empty arms. its frustrating, really.
