This entire experience is really taking a toll emotionally
Hello everyone, I am 23 years old. The last few months my husband and I have stopped using any protection. We both really want a baby. My cycles used to be 28/29 days, and all of a sudden now they are 33/36 the last 2 months. I obviously took test after test, box after box, thinking I was pregnant.
Those two months were horrible on me. I’ve been very emotional with each negative test. I am now on month three, and I’m on day 35 of my cycle with no sign of my period.
I cannot bring myself to take another test. The last two months I’ve been late and it hasn’t been pregnancy, I just know this time is the same thing.
I will say that I am VERY stressed lately with work related things. That has been the one change in the last few months, so I wonder if stress is partially contributing to the changes in my cycle. I am starting to wonder if I won’t be able to have children if my periods keep being irregular, I watch everyone around me get pregnant so easily, and as much as I’m happy for them I would be lying to say it doesn’t hurt. I guess I’m just looking for a pick me up/advice/ similar stories.
