Aww, thanks for checking in! We got the bad news yesterday that it didn't work again. We're done now. We have vacation out west planned for a week starting tomorrow and will do a lot of talking about what our next steps are. Our options are adoption or living childless and loving our nephews, cousins, and all the other wonderful children in our life.

I hope for the best for all of you! Good luck on your journeys to parenthood!

I'm pretty sure I'm on my period, but that is actually a great thing! I stopped Depo on 7/31 and it wasn't until then that I started reading how hard it was for many women. Not just the "up to a year" that I already knew, but some women have been off it for 5 or more years and have not had a cycle. So, I'm happy!
Although it's been so long since I've had a natural cycle that I'd forgotten how uncomfortable it can be...

Take care, Gwenn!

I had my transfer last Thursday, but the timing is frustrating because instead of getting the results this Saturday, I have to wait until Monday. After so long, every day is tough!

Good luck to all

Sorry to hear that Gwenn.


My period came when it should have this month which I am happy for since my weird episode in June where I didn't have a period. TTC this month, but won't actually know until September.

Hi all!

I'm in for August, got a BFN last month (our first month trying) so I am really anxious to see how things will go this month. AF is due on the 27th of this month, 1 day before my birthday! Wouldn't that just be the BEST birthday gift a girl could get? emoticon

For me, no AF yet and I'm on day 10 past the Provera (should have seen AF within 7 days). My body seems to be doing period-like stuff though (acne, tummy aches), so I'm going to try OPKs for the next 3 weeks and see if I'm ovulating and just not having AF. I talked to the Dr yesterday and she said to give it 2 more weeks and if still no AF, she'll have me do a longer cycle of Provera. I really don't want to have to ween my DS to get pregnant, but I also don't want to have a longer spacing between kids than necessary.

How's everyone doing? I'm feeling a bit off but I'm sure it's due to stopping BC and not being pregnant. Keeping track of every little thing anyway! Eating raw cookie dough and runny eggs until circumstances dictate otherwise!

I finished 10 days of Provera on Saturday. Now I'm waiting for my first AF in 2.5 years...I'm supposed to see it within a week, which will start day 1 of my cycle. On day 3, go get labs drawn. Days 8-20 BD. If no AF by day 35 (I need to verify that day on my instruction sheet), POS and if no BFP, start another cycle of Provera. I'm sure I'll throw in some OPKs because more information has to be good, right? I'm pretty eager to see day 1 ;)

Kari, I'm so glad to hear you had a good experience. I've had breakthrough bleeding for TEN YEARS and no doctor has been able to find a way to make it stop, nor do most of them seem overly concerned about it. Well, maybe the reason my iron is low because I'm bleeding all the time, and maybe some doctor somewhere should care about that! emoticon Rant over.
At any rate, glad you had a doctor who really heard you.

Glad to see from ACTINIA that I'm not the only one with delayed return of cycle due to BF :). After 20 months (we are still BF), I'm doing something to get things going, though. I talked to my doctor yesterday and she has given me Provera to get my cycle started. She is also going to do labs to check a few things, but she's pretty sure it's just the BF that is delaying things. It's kind of funny to have the doctor help, when I got pregnant quickly the first time, but with a bed-sharing one+ year old, I can't temp accurately and I haven't seen a positive OPK yet (likely because I'm inconsistant with them). So, I'm officially in the game now, but I might be a September hopeful with the schedule the dr gave me.

On a side note, I recently moved and this is a new OB/GYN for me and I was delighted that she took my concerns seriously, didn't rush me, and quickly had a plan. I left the office feeling good, and that doesn't always happen.

Tried acupuncture for the first time and it was an interesting experience. I didn't really feel the needles going in at all, except a few had a pinch and the ones in my legs caused some tingling, which is normal. I'm going in two more times next week. For someone who is afraid of needles, I'm amazed I did so well, especially since it's three needles instead of one, in each spot.

Susanna - it's taken so long as we're breastfeeding. Before conceiving him I was on the implant, he was conceived straight after I had it taken out. I'd heard the same about depo and because my Dr knew we would be trying to conceive at some point in the near future we decided between us the implant was the best course and didn't go the depo route. No contraceptives this time so hoping it will be quick but we haven't weaned yet so not sure my cycle is fully back.

Gwenn-- Good luck. Keep us posted! I've heard good things about acupuncture, too.

Actinia- Sorry if you've told the forum before, but is your cycle back from being on BC, or breastfeeding, or what? I'm curious because for my first, I was off pill-BC for a few months and got pregnant, but this time around I'm coming off Depo and I've heard it takes much longer. Either way, good luck to you!

In for August - my cycle just came back in July after 22 months. So hoping to get working on baby 2 straight away. We'll see what happens, but planning on ttc August, September and then waiting until December if I don't catch those two months. Good luck ladies!

Hello everyone. I know I have been quiet and not really too active lately. I've had a lot going on emotionally with me. We finally got through the last consult this morning to figure out what we should do. Everything came back normal with testing, but because of my age and the time it has been since my last positive, he suggested IUI or IVF. We are going to try an IUI and my medication will arrive tomorrow. I'm pretty nervous about it, but I will also be going to acupuncture around the time of it. I'm actually going to a consult tomorrow. I'm crossing my fingers this is it for me.

I'm certain I'm not "in" for August since my depo shot won't actually be done until July 31st. But I wanted to start posting and getting to know other folks anyway. Good luck all!

I'm in for August (Technically AF would be due on July 31st... but I REALLY try not to 'hover' on the first day since my cycles are randomness - so I'm just going to enjoy my July and see what happens in August!)
