Ok that's good that you are starting investigations now x

just had HSG test. Thank you to those who offered support.
Wasnt too bad at all. Cramping afterwards and feel a bit woozey from the injection they gave to stop my tubes going into spasms!
they think my right tube has some adhesions from my op in April and is now blocked. But one tube working perfect is all you need so hopefully it’s the left side this cycle and I still ovulate on time and we catch it!
re: twin conversation- its my absolute dream to have twins. I must be mad at this point I’ll take any number that’s not 0!

Sorry Miley and Becks. 🤞 for this month.
I'm glad your test wasn't so bad, Mrs Bee, and great news that you've got one fab side - all you need!
06/10/2017 at 23:21
Fingers crossed for twins for you then MrsBeeL 😊 sorry to all those of you that have started af.. I'm on cd 5 and af just finished so I'm back to dtd every other day fingers crossed this cycle is shorter than 65 days 🤞 they do seem to be getting shorter so I'm hopeful 😊 I've got a blood test on the 16th to see why my cycles are so long and haven't regulated yet since my contraceptive implant was removed in December x

Bit of a long one ahead I'm afraid! Congratulations to those that have recent bfps! I'm a bit of a lurker and have been following and had fingers crossed for all of you, I generally don't post because I don't want to obsess which I was finding I was doing in the first few months of TTC.
I feel like I'm on a emotional roller coaster this month and although I know the following situation is a wait and see one..but I just need to have a bit of a rant about how cruel our bodies can be!
So I've been regularly irregular if that makes sense, however in the last few months have been able to predict my cycle within a few days (30-34 days). I am over weight so me and my husband have been on a health kick...no harsh dieting but slimming world and the gym.....so I have been off the pill since January and have never gone below 30 days a cycle however this month had lots of ewcm on Cd17 which carried on a few days but then started spotting on cd 24, brown stringy at times (sorry) and pink very on and off then on cd 28 had a bleed which I thought was my period finally starting, popped a tampon in but then it was just brown again and now ewcm again. I guess I'm just feeling like I'm back to square one, i also have some backache which I can feel in my bum cheek and terrible insomnia at the moment. I know it's early days in the world of TTC and if I had started my period as normal would just chalk it up to experience,but this has confused me so much. Especially as everything seemed to go so well when I thought I was ovulating (I don't do opk's we DTD every other day)
Sorry and thanks ladies

Hi Hopeful 123
our bodies are crazy! We’ve all had things like this - for most on here it turns out to be nothing but our bodies playing games with us. For some its signs that a BFP is on its way.
Wait a week and if still no af take a test! Fx for you x
07/10/2017 at 14:32
Thanks Mrs BeeL. Good luck this cycle x
07/10/2017 at 15:26
I do think our bodies like to play games, but these situations so often do turn into BFPs for people, Hopeful, so I have my fingers crossed for you.
I'm on CD8, Gracie, so just ahead of you.

Good luck on your weight loss journey, I know that being under or over weight can affect your cycle and even stop it all together so it's great you're actively getting healthy and I'm sure your cycle with become more regular as you said it is starting to.
Our bodies can be very cruel, you may not have been ovulating due to your weight but sounds like you are now, blood streaks or brown or pink tinges in your ewcm is a sign of the egg being released as I found out recently as I had the same thing. Due to your change of lifestyle I have a feeling you will notice lots of changes to your cycle and symptoms during the month which are all good signs so try not to read into everything as you could end up disappointed.

Miley, are your doctors supportive and pushing things forward for you? Our doctor was great after 12 months of trying - straight off to organise blood tests and a sample for OH. You're so brave to still post encouragement and advice to others despite your difficult journey. I hope your BFP comes soon 🤞.

Not really tbh, atm I'm more concerned about getting a diagnosis for my unusual periods as it's ruining my life. I get such painful bowels the first day or two of my period I'm in agony and crying trying to go to the toilet, my period pains are agony I've even called an ambulance a couple of times I thought I was going to die. My periods are really heavy aswell, I have to wear those pull up pants to bed or I'll wake up with it all over me and the bed which isn't good. I'm 28 so feel I have a couple of years to try and get something done before I start pushing the doctors about the fertility side of it, kinda hoping it's something that goes hand in hand and by hopefully getting a diagnosis and treatment it will help with the fertility side of it aswell.
07/10/2017 at 19:05
I think it's endometriosis as that's what the gp thought when I was younger based on my symptoms and when I have done some research it seems to me it fits, especially the bowel problems I have. I've seen that endometriosis can cause scarring and blockages in the fallopian tubes so if that's the case and I have treatment to remove it then it could help my fertility at the same time.

I hope you find a resolution very soon, Miley. Hang in there.
08/10/2017 at 15:23
Cd2 for me ☹️ A bit gutted but at least I know when my cycles are now!
08/10/2017 at 19:13
Thanks Jen, I still remember being 11 years old laying on the school toilet floor in agony unable to get up from period pains. They've really affected my life so hoping whatever it is there is a way of making it bearable.
08/10/2017 at 21:31
Awww Miley I really feel for you, no one should have struggled with that pain for so long. Periods shouldn't affect anyone's life to such an extent. Hope you get some proper answers soon and hopefully some solutions hun X
08/10/2017 at 21:34
If you don't feel your doctor is sensitive to your problems, try another and another until you get one who understand that we shouldn't suffer like you seem to every month, that it isn't normal - sadly.some doctors are still very much in the train of thought that it is just something we have to put up with or accept. It most definitely isn't. Keep on at them until they help

Just gave them a little time after my internal scan to get the report back as didn't want to go and find out the report wasn't back yet and waste my time so going to book an appointment at my first opportunity to push for more. I moved gps because my old gp was awful and never did anything productive about anything, diagnosed me with extremely painful periods and that was that. I want to be a mum so bad but putting yourself first is more important, we're still trying but not obsessively, I can't see it happening naturally after 3 and a half years being unsuccessful.

Hi everyone...abit about me
In Jan my dad got ill, May 26th I had a miscarriage. Exactly one week after finding out my wonderful news, it was just snatched away from me absolutely gutting and the worse feeling ever.
One of my closest friends had a baby 4 months ago and i still have not been to see her, i cant face it....instead i 'like' all her FB pics of her son she posts.
In June my dad was diagnosed as terminal and he died on July 11th.
All i keep thinking about is how much i want a baby, how life is so cruel. Is it wrong that I feel jealous of all the BFP's on this site :(
I wasnt expecting to get pregnant and now i keep thinking why was it taken away from me like that???!!!
Can anyone help with explaining how OPK tests work, ive ordered some but they are just sitting in my knicker drawer. Also what is luteul phase?
Many thanks xx
09/10/2017 at 07:55
Really sorry to hear you're having such a hard time however its very natural to feel jealous of all the bfp's my sister in law has a little boy in June and I've had my own jealous pangs.
The luteal phase is the time in between ovulation and your period and can range from between 10 and 16 days but doesnt vary by more than a day for example mine is usually 11 days but has been 10 days on occasion.
Opk's are best taken between 12pm and 8pm after refraining from fluids and withholding from going to the toilet for around 2 hours before taking the test.. they measure your lh level but although they're a good indicator they don't garuntee ovulation will take place, i take mine at 2pm and 8pm as i have a varying lh surge length and mine can be very short, i use one step ovulation tests as they are cheap on Amazon and eBay, the test line should be as dark or darker than the control line to indicate a positive result, i also temp to confirm ovulation.
I'm by no means an expert but I hope this helps.. good luck and baby dust xx
