QUESTION

Dear Midwife,
Hello. I was wondering if you have ever heard of taking Medroxyprogestrone or Provera for an irregular period while trying to conceive. I would be taking it for 10 days then start a period within 3-4 days. Start the first day of my period as day 1, 10 days later I start testing for ovululation. Then after ovulation occurs, we are to have sex every other day for a week. If no positive for pregnancy then I start the pills again on the 1st of each month.

QUESTION

Dear Midwife,
I wasn't planning on a pregnancy at this time as I just graduated college and am just beginning a new job as a hair stylist. My boyfriend and I were planning a wedding maybe sometime next year. Then I was planning on at least working another full year before planning a family. I need to build a clientele. I'm 21. My last period was around April 2nd. I started to bleed but just one day, April 25th. My cycles vary -- 28 days to sometimes 45 days.
