Hi everyone, this is my first post and I was hoping for abit of advice...
So, I came off the pill last October so my husband and I could try for our first baby. I'd been on the combined pill since I was about 15, I'm 28 now and went on the pill because I used to have really heavy and painful periods (although regular as clockwork).
Anyway.. since coming off the pill my periods are all over the place.. they settled into a regular cycle after a couple of months coming every 29-31 days but all I was having was brown spotting (sorry for the tmi) and it was lasting anywhere from 2 weeks to 17 days! Then a few months ago my period was over 2 weeks late and didnt come until CD46, the next one was CD45 and then CD35. My last 2 periods have been more "normal" lasting about a week with a heavier flow.
But this month I started using OPKS and I got a strong positive on CD21 but on CD22 I started bleeding. It lasted about a week but it was just light spotting. That finished on Wednesday and then yesterday I started bleeding again. I'm so confused with whats going on.
I've been to the doctor and had a blood test which came back "normal" I was also swabbed for infection which was clear. I then went for a transvaginal scan which the nurse said looked normal. I just don't understand why my cycles are so messed up.
I was so excited when my opk was positive but now I'm not convinced I'm even ovulating and the doctor has told me to just give it more time but a year feels like ages. I know it isn't but it feels like it's never going to happen with my periods all over the place
