    Do you think you could be miscarrying if you miss a few months then bleed heavily??
  6. well sometimes i think that i am, like this past period.. man it went on forever and blood clots. but then sometimes i just have normal periods. i dont know what to think. there are just so many possibilities. i am VERY affraid of it being something horrible and then i cant have kids. kids are the world to me.

    your best bet would be to see a doctor than something is definately wrong and you can't seem to find out what it is on your own. even a local planned parenthood could help you out

    yes, get in to a doctor you could have something as simple as a cis on one or both of your overies. this can really mess with your fertility & cycles. But is fixable. good luck!!!

    Get some Damiana for yourself. Then get some Selenium for you and your man. We both started taking Selenium 2 summers ago. It was for detoxing our bodies, but I was pregnant within 2 weeks (after 4.5 years of nothing). Turns out Selenium is a fertility booster for men and women. I found it in the vitamins aisle at Walmart. Damiana I got from my local herb/whole foods store. Good luck!

    How are you charting? Waking temp and cervical fluid both is best as you can see if you're pregnant and your hormone levels are just plummeting (tri-phasic temp change and then sudden plummet and bleeding), or if your body is trying to ovulate but not making it (cervical mucous increase, but never a noticeable temp change). In this way, you can make any fertility treatments more effective, if they are needed. :)

    hmmm..i know how u feel...try finally getting pregnant and then having it ripped out from underneath you
  16. It can be totally frustrating trying to get pg. We had no troubles conceiving our dd but our other two we had many hurdles, several miscarriages,and a ruptured ectopic in which I lost a fallopian tube. We used clomid for our last two children and it worked very well. It usually takes about 2 cycles of it and I am pg!

    Good luck, you can PM me if you have any questions or I can help in any way. I am also an RN and have done a lot of work in women's health and Labor and delivery.

    Just found this:

    What is Clomid?

    Clomid is a fertility medication that is used to induce ovulation. Known as clomiphene citrate, the drug is sold under the brand names Clomid and Serophene, and is available throughout the United Kingdom. Specifically, Clomid works to stimulate a woman’s ovaries to mature an increased number of follicles every month. Because Clomid increases the number of mature follicles in the ovaries, the drug also increases the likelihood of ovulation and pregnancy.

    How Does Clomid Work?

    Clomid works by acting on a number of different receptors in the body that regulate hormone production and release. In particular, Clomid works to increase the amount of three hormones involved in the ovulation process, including:

    • gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH)
    • luteinizing hormone (LH)
    • follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH)
    Clomid essentially tricks the body into believing that it has lowered levels of estrogen. As a result, the brain begins to secrete increased levels of GnRH, which, in turn, stimulates the release of FSH and LH. These hormones then trigger the ovaries to begin to mature more follicles.

    What is Clomid Prescribed For?

    Clomid is generally prescribed for couples facing female infertility, including:
    • anovulation
    • PCOS
    • irregular menstruation
    Clomid is also used to increase the number of follicles available for IVF treatment procedures.

    I was told by a nurse practitioner I had polycystic ovaries. I was seeing her because I would go without a bleed for months and months, and then when I started bleeding, it would be HEAVY and wouldn't stop for months. I would have to get a shot of progesterone to get the bleeding to stop. If this sounds like you, please go see the doctor to get it fixed!

    I've had two children, and after having each one, I had regular cycles. This lasted for approximately three years after delivering each child. So it is possible to have children!

    Good luck, and I hope you feel better soon!
