Getting Pregnant

I am going for it!!

Lately my friend has been spending a significant amount of time with me. He talks about ending relationships he has with others, and talks about plans to take me along to places with him he usually would not take me. He begun bringing me with him when he visits his childhood neighborhood, and introducing me to more and more of his life, even though we know almost everything about one another. I decided that instead of fearing to loose the ability to have a baby that it won't kill me to try.

What to do?

I am currently in a non-committed relationship, however it works for us. I am 28 and he is 36, both work in the city live out of the city in the same town. I have a pretty average income, his compared to my own...way above average, but compared to others really decent. He lives on his own as do I. We agreed to be friends or open to just date w/freedom to date others. Recently I shared with him my secret that I keep to myself especially when it comes to males. I am diagnosed prone to ovarian cysts, and my doctor however sweet (you know can report you may die if we don't stuff...

TTC Journey begins this Summer or Fall 2009

I am 28 and I currently take YAZ BC to manage ovarian cysts. I work with my doctor closely and I have been doing this for the past 3 or so years. The last time I went in with pain from a small cyst, my Doctor asked "when do I plan to get pregnant?" This was last August 2008 or the following September. Since then I have been absolutely anxious about missing my opportunity to be a mother. I take my BC daily, although I can't blame anyne but myself when I miss a pill and a cyst forms. My doctor says that when I am ready to conceive we will stop the bc treatment for 3 months and try.

i am currently on the pill (monophasic) i started my period one week early, kept taking them then started them up again after my one week off stage. i had unprotected intercourse during the one week off the pill stage and i think i may have started my pill one day late. is it paussible that i may have ovulated during this period off the pill?

Am I Pregnant?

I have irregular periods, but generally I get my period every 30 days or so. My last period was on March 2nd. I had unprotected sex during my ovulation period. I have very sore breast for the past 7 days, which I do get before my period, I'm very tired all the time, eating a lot and constipation. Should I take a pregnancy test now or wait a little longer and do you think my symptoms could be a pregnancy. Im 36 years old and have two kids, I really want to have another one! Thank you!

2nd months a charm?

Well I have been off my birth control since late February. AF came March 6th and I have been using an ovulation calendar and checking my cervical mucous since then. Granted it's only been one cycle, I felt like I did everything right. I quit bad habits (drinking), knew or thought I knew when I was ovulating, was BDign every day- every other day, tried to lay back for 5 minutes afterwards..... I was even four days late!! But April 7th my old friend showed up again. So now I'm doing it over again. Any advice on what else I can do? It's so hard to be patient!

Spotting After Forgetting to Change Birth Control Patch

QUESTION

Dear Midwife,
I have been on Ortho Evra for almost two years. I have never had any spotting and have never had an early or missed period. Last week, I was supposed to change my patch on Monday, but I forgot and changed it on Wednesday.

I am sexually active and we do not use protection and he does not pull out. The next week, the week before my expected period, I have been spotting. Is this from forgetting to change my patch?

planned pregnancy.

Hi!I'm 19, 20 in October, I just married a month ago on valentines day and I think I'm pregnant. It was planned so its no surprise. The problem is that our families are in texas and he is stationed in camp pendleton, cali. His contract is up in June and our plans are to move to houston and attend college. Idk how I'm gonna be starting college and possibly giving birth! I'm pretty much an only child and not very familiar with babies but I'm so excited to be a mom and what makes me happier is that he is the dad. We dated for 6 years and married on valentines day of this year.

Title says it all.

I got up this morning, the morning my period was due and hello, there you are. *sighs*

So, that's now 5 years, 4 months of TTC.

1 month of medical help.

Doc will be looking at drugs next round.

How many rounds are we going to do? I honestly don't know.

I'm not as upset as I thought I was going to be, but I'm still teary. *sighs*

Round 2 coming up in three...two...one...
