Hello Beauts,

Hope you all had a lovely Christmas.

Looking for some advice with getting pregnant. Me and my partner have been trying since October 2017 and still nothing. I hadn’t had a period in majority of this time. I bleed loads when I am on contraception then don’t when I’m not. They gave me tablets to take to see if I bleed which I had like dark brown/red blood come away for two days.

I know this Sounds stupid but can I get pregnant even though I’m not bleeding? Does this mean I’m not ovulating? Has anyone else been in this situation?

Thank you for any help/advice given!

Thank you ❤️❤️

Woo sounds like lots is going on!!

First of all, what do you mean that you bleed lots while on contraceptives? Do you bleed all the time or only during the break?

What do you mean when you say you don't bleed? How often do you get your period, say, in a year? Because if it's less than every 2-3 months it might be PCOS.

What were those tablets they gave you?

Was it an clotting agent or something?

If I were you, I'd get an transvaginal ultrasound to check for PCOS + hormone blood test (estrogen, progesterone, prolactin, testosterone) :)

Wish you the best!
