Trying to conceive

Seen GP today who was most arrogant & asked no proffesional standard Qs like... am i stressed? Is there a possibility I could be PG? Have you had any AF symptoms?
She suggested going on the pill for 2months to see if the hormones would produce my AF on the week break of taking the pill. This confused me as me & my OH are TTC. Obviously this is not possible if I'm on the pill. I see her point about forcing my body to AF but surely this is not natural to wait 5months after MC for my AF.
I believe there is something more to this than simply lack of hormones! I'm obviously producing hormones as I'm having AF symptoms like back ache, oily skin, sore boobs & craving for anything thats chocolate (apart from chocolate itself!!)
These symptoms only appear around twice a month. I suppose I'm going to have to take Docs orders & take the pill for a month & see if i bleed at the end of month...if not, I'm not waiting another month to see if the pill has FORCED me to bleed!
This is stressing me out more than anything & if it's not solved then me stressing isn't goin to help the situation is it! :evil: Bloody GP's!! EPU can't do anything until my GP refers me either! I miss my old GP but he likes his safari's & exotic holidays too much :x

I'm a little confused at the whole pill option as like you say, we'r supposed to come off the pill a few months before TTC. At this rate, by time they allow me/say its safe to conceive, I'm not gonna have my wish of being a young mum. I don't mean a young mum asin like teens but I'd like to be fit & healthy whilst my children are running around & causing havoc without wearing myself out :lol: My OH is feeling the crunch time for children too as he's hitting 25 soon & he has always dreamt of having at least 3 children by time he is 30. Which is still possible but at the moment, it's not looking too good, seeing as it took us 18months to conceive & that resulted in miscarriage :\( What's even worse is I'm moving Germany in Feb & would like this dealt with & found out the problem before I move & then we can think about settling down in Germany & praying that we get BFP's Feel like I'm on bloody countdown!! :lol:

Apparentli we should expect CM for about 5days around OV....well for the past 5months since my MC I've not experienced ANY whatsoever!!
I read a little bit on BabyCentre whilst lookin at OV calendars that if I do not experience any CM then it could be a symptom to a problem.
Hmmm.....why didn't my GP saying anything when I'd mentioned I'm not experiencing any CM because she'd asked me that Q after asking about AF symptoms ( which again, I'm not having any!! )
Surely there is something majorly wrong if I've had no AF for 5months after MC, no AF symptoms & no CM or am I just worrying too much??:\?

Can I ask what AC & EPO is please?
I've decided I'm not going to pump my body with unwanted chemicals that are going to force my body on doing something that it doesn't want to do & to cause further problems for me & OH to conceive.
The pill could be covering up a further problem with my oven & I don't want to disguise a problem, I want to solve it so that me & OH can conceive naturally without having problems.
This is obviously just a wish & at this stage, I doubt a natural, easy, stress-free conception & pregnancy is going to be on the cards :\(

I've noticed in the past 2days though, when I'm due on I normally can't sleep a whole night through, wake up before my alarm with no reason, my body temperature rises a hell of alot at night & I had some mild cramps yesterday afternoon.
Hmmmm....maybe my body is beginning to adjust by itself (probably knows I'm planning to pump it with pills :lol
I think if my AF does not arrive within the next 7days then I'm going to try AC
For those that have tried or are currently taking AC.....in what forms does this 'herb' come in & how can this be taken? I've tried to research this but Im not good at reading paragraph after paragraph of useless information about plants & where they grow :lol: x
