Feeling a bit lost
My husband and I have been trying for over a year now to get pregnant. I realise this isn't a very long time and others have experienced a longer struggle but sometimes I just feel a bit disheartened.
I had been on the pill for several years and my husband and I are coming up to nearly 10 years together. Children is something we have always discussed. After coming off the pill, I am still having very erratic periods, some months it will be weeks after when its expected or I may get nothing fo a few months. The most frustrating part of this is getting all the signs like I am going to get my period but nothing. This of course leads me to think I may be pregnant but every time I have taken a test its always negative. This is starting to become quite upsetting and as much as people says "it will happen in time" or "you will be fine", I don't feel fine about it.It can be quite hard on my husband too seeing me feel that way and not being able to help or click his fingers and make it happen.
I have had tests done at the doctors in terms of mineral levels etc in my blood and a scan, and all seem to be ok except I have now been called in to discuss my latest results. The doctor was trying to see if I was ovulating but it was difficult to pin point and I have been told it is my progesterone level that is the issue so I'm a bit nervous about that.
I know it all takes time and the more I think about it or obsess, the less likely it will be. I just feel a bit lost sometimes and like not many people are understanding how its making me feel about myself.
Just wanted to share.
