I took a month off meds because when AF came last time I went to the RE and had 4 cysts on my ovaries. She said I could come back in 2 days to check again because it is possible for cycsts to come and go. I said I would rather just give the ovaries a break from meds for a month.
Well AF was due to arrive Wednesday. I have not been on any meds, or the progesterone tablets (prometrium) they usually had me take which often delayed AF. So now I am wondering if I am pregnant and if I should take my extra progesterone tablets as they had me doing each momth around this time? My insurance will not cover me geting a pregnancy test at the RE because I did not do a cycle of meds. I took a home test this afternoon which was negative. I think if by Monday no AF then I will call my gyne and set up an appt for a pregnancy test. But in the meantime should I start prometrium again just in case??
I am not sure how many dpo I am. I just know that I usually get my period every 28 days and that would have been Wednesday. Each month that I am ttc with ma they have me begin prometrium a few days after our IUI. That was why I was wondering if I should take it because maybe I am pregnant? I took a test this morning and it was negative. But my sister said she was almost 2 months pregnant before it showed up on a home test.
Well I called my gyne's office this morning and of course they are not open on Mondays! GRRR.... But it may not matter because I think I am spotting, which probably means AF is coming. I really thought that I was pregnant this time!! My period is never this late. If I do not get my period by tomorrow I will call when the dr office opens and get an appt.
I never got af...just some spotting still. Its real light, not even enough for a pad. So I went to the gyne today and she did an ultrasound and urinalysis and said that she does not believe I am pregnant. But she took blood as well just to be sure. The results of the blood will be back tomorrow. She says for now just go on the assumption AF is late (she is a week late as of now!).
I am wondering what is causing my period to be late when it has always been regular, even before I started fertility treatments. Now I am worried about eptopic pregnancy.
