Hi I'm new just joined. Here's my story so been on depo maybe just under a year after having to take implan out after it causing me terrible depression and anxiet. Anyway i have 4 children already but me and my husband decided we want one more (hopefully a boy as I have 3 girls and one boy so would love 2 boys) so was due a depo shot on 11th August it needed topping up but I didn't go for it 🙏🏽 Depo stopped my period entirely and had nothing since I stopped depo but been doing opks since maybe last week first one I did I had to really squint to see the second line but it was there I l did it day after second line was same so I left it a day or 2 tested again yesterday 2/9/17 and second line was visibley darker than previous but not as dark as control line. Tested again same time today and it's a little darker than yesterday but still not as dark as control line HELP ME am I due to overlate 😩😩 read so many horrible stories about trying to concieve after depo but then heard people i.e. My sis in law conceiving within weeks with having no period. Fertility always been good took implant out for my boy and was pregnant within a week with him 😊 iv just gone 30 any advice would be appreciated

All you can do hun is just keep having regular sex and do your OPK's until you get a positive.
Everyone will have a different experience coming off so there are no set patterns. You might get your cycles back quickly or may take a while to settle.
Hope you have another speedy journey.
Ladies I am getting really annoyed. Been so uncomfortable at work today. My left side is really hurting. Can only describe it as like a stitch but constant for the past few hours. Had to keep standing up at work as was sore to sit but standing hasn't really helped (other than move it to entirely my left side lol as it was a bit all over)
Guessing another cycle of being out as have felt this before but not usually quite so uncomfortable.

Hello All - Newbie Here :) I have been following this thread for some time but this is my first post.
DH and I are on our 2nd cycle ttc our first child. I knew that it would be an emotional roller coaster but I was not prepared to feel it all in such a short time. I went off the pill in May and we officially started ttc mid July using preseed and opks. I had an implantation bleed on 8/11-8/13 and got several bfps on 8/17-8/18 but had a early miscarriage @ 5-6wks on 8/22-8/23. We had initially been prepared for it to take awhile for bfp so to get it so soon and then have it taken away even quicker was a huge adjustment.
It feels like this cycle is my first cycle altogether and the past one was all a blur :( My acupuncturiest did a hormone balancing treatment this past Wednesday which seems to have helped as I finally got a + opk today on cd20. We have been BDing every other day and will every day for the next couple so hopefully we catch it. We both want it so badly that its hard to remain realistic and not get our hopes up too far.
Sorry for the long post, no one except my boss knows that we lost and were trying so I don't have anyone other than DH to vent to.
I wish loads of baby dust to all xx

Sorry for your loss MrsBrown but nice to have another face on here .... We are all here to vent to or ask advice any time. Everyone's journey is different but there will always be someone to chat with.

Hi and welcome Mrs Brown, sorry to hear about your loss its difficult not having many people to talk to and I find this group is great for reassurance and someone to talk to about all the things going through your mind that you can't talk to others about, no one really knows me and hubby are trying and its hard not to let things slip because ttc is all that consumes my mind at the minute
Sending lots of baby dust hope this is your month hun xx

Alex no one can decide that for you only you and your husband can make the decision. You need to do a lot of research as there are different surrogacy laws in every country.

Hi so I come off depo (already put post about it) so been off it 5 weeks nearly not had no period but I did Ovo tests 3 week after my depo was due was really faint then Saturday before last I got a strong line and on the Sunday also iv BD everyday since depo lol and after the Sunday turned really faint again so I was almost certain I conceived on the Saturday as on the Sunday I felt funny all day very light headed dizzy sick so was doing hpt all that week on the Friday took a clear blue plus with first pee and it came up positive so did a Superdrug one the next morning also positive (started to feel all pregnancy symptons bloate,sore boobs,been sick, and very weird dreams,headache) anyway went doctors on Monday she did a test and it was negative so I asked for a blood test and she refused showed her my positive test she told me it was negative as was faint(iv got 4 kids and always been faint) anyway I thought ok well I'll buy a couple more home ones did one this morning negative same clear blue plus as other one plus a pound shop one both negative today so I'm sooo confused and still not had so much as a pink or red dot of blood so I went to Holland and barrett today and bought some primrose oil recommeded by the woman who works in there to kickstart my cycles but still feel pregnant any advice anyon???????

I'm now 3 days past ovulation day and keeping everything crossed while still trying to maintain a level head, I think I might be loosing my mind slightly.

Channi did you get your period (or a positive test) yet? Coming off any contraceptives can mess with our cycles for a while so hope yours settle down quickly if you didn't get pregnant this time.
Emma all you can try and do is just keep busy - I found when I was on holiday I didn't even think about the two week wait but if I am home it's on my.mind unless I keep very busy when not at work.

Hi becks no still no period and finally got another doctor to give me blood test and it was negative so she's now given me provera to kick start periods so I have a good feeling I will get a bfp soon fingers crossed I will never ever go on that depo again x

Glad you found someone who was willing to help and although it wasn't the outcome you hoped for, at least they took you seriously. Good luck with the new meds kick-starting things for you!

Hi New here!!
I've been TTC for over 2 years now, I took clomid first time this month and I'm due on Friday. I tested on wednesday night and got a bfn! i know it could be too early but I just cannot wait, I'm so hopefully that the clomid will work first time. I've had cramping for the last few days and really sore nipples also feeling tired which I never normally get before af. Also today I just cant get off the toilet (sorry for the info) but my friend had the same and found out she was pregnant a few days later. Anyone had the same experience? Or how did clomid work for you? Thanks x

Guys I need emergency help! I don’t know what to do 😖 so I’m supposed to be going out to town tonight drinking with my friends from work (bad when ttc I know but I needed to live a little) anyways I was also due on today. Turns out my normally on time period hasn’t yet arrived, I don’t know if I should still go out or give it a miss just in case 😣
29/09/2017 at 08:30
Emma your best bet is take a test. Also go out and have fun, you don't have to drink to have fun (and it isn't bad to keep living while trying) - if you can't take a test for whatever reason go out and drink alcohol free ciders or beers but ask for them in a glass.

Need some advice ive Done this test and I think I can see a line? Done one about half an hour after and nothing? AF was due yesterday
06/10/2017 at 17:05
Hi Hun they are either evap lines or indents I did these last week and exactly same line as yours on 2 of them i thought they was positive so did a Superdrug own brand pink dye ones and bfn so I would restest with Superdrug ones I emailed tesco about this and they had no explanation just a refund so I would not get your hopes up x baby dust to you

So I am 11 days late now and for the past week or so I’ve been taking tests, I’ve done three up to now, two negative (or so I thought) I’ve done one today and it has a really faint second line, enough that I could see it but it doesn’t match the first line, what does this mean? And when I’ve looked back at my one from two days ago that has a fainter line that I just hadn’t noticed at the time
