First, I feel bad for even posting this knowing what some of you have endured, so I apologize in advance.
I am just so bummed out today. When I got my IUD removed in April, I didn't think my body would have this much difficulty getting back to normal. It's just disheartening.
My worrisome nature is spiraling today. What if my system is screwed up? What if this difficulty translates into something more serious? My doctor told me that there is no reason to think that this isn't going to be a normal cycle, yet here I am, CD23, with 8 days of EWCM and nothing yet.
Gahhhh. Wish I could stop thinking about all of this and just O already. You ladies have every right to say "Woman it's only been four months, knock it off!"
I think that you have every right to be frustrated with your situation. It must be very confusing and exasperating for you. It really does seem like your body is at least trying to get itself back together. I hope it gets under control soon!
Em I felt EXACTLY like that when my body wasn't getting its act together when I went off BCP. It took me about 4 months to regulate. It is so frustrating when your body wont cooperate I so hope that you are regulated soon and about to O any day now and get your BFP soon!
Been there (hoping to not be there again!) . I know just how you feel.
When I quit BCP the first time, in November of 2011 it took me 4 months to get regular. The 5th month was my first normal cycle. From there on out, they were more normal. Where I would O within a couple days of each other each cycle.
This is my first month back off BCP again since February, so we will see what happens. I wish I hadn't ever gone on it again.
Vent all you want, it does help. We were NTNP back in winter of 2011 so it wasn't as big of a deal for us, but it still left me frustrated and confused. Something so natural shouldn't be THIS difficult!
Thank you friends. It really helps to know that you were in the same boat.
It is maddening that something so natural is now so complicated by BC! Plus I know that I need to manage my expectations better. I shouldn't have expected to be ok by now (but is it too much to ask?!!)
I'm glad you got a positive OPK! I'm sure you have been busy
I feel the same way about regulating after the IUD/BCP, I'm only on my first full cycle of being off of it and I'm already worrying about if my body is adjusting properly or not, due to possibly not Oing this cycle or having a delayed O, and I realize I have no place worrying about that yet lol.
