THIS IS A HARD ONE!!!!!

I've used depo for a long time. sometimes i would stuff to give my body a break and periods would start back up regularly after 5 or 6 months as expected. well recently with the whole getting married and starting a family on the table FI and i discussed trying shortly after the wedding. i decided it would be great to get off Depo to get it out of my system and to start getting my cycles and start charting everything. So i stopped and like clock work 6 months later i got my cycle. i got it for 3 months straight and then last month out of the blue nothing....then this month when it should have started, nothing. With 8 days left in the month i doubt it will come. ofcourse i immediately thought we had concevied early than planned so i took 2 home tests that came back negative. Then i started worrying. I selve diagnosed and thought maybe it was an etopic pregnancy. took a blood test. it came back negative.  Really started worrying because then i started researching PCOS, early menopause, thyroids. clearly something is wrong. everyone says its the stress of planning a wedding and trying to purchase our first home but i don't know. I'm real scared about the early menopause. that can't be reversed. i'm 27 and will be 28 in august and it just seems crazy that this is even on the list of possible things but it is a reality. i tried to make an appointment for today but it good friday so that was a shot in the dark. i have one though for monday. please pray for me that its just stress and worry and can all be cleared up with rest and clarity.


Its amazing most of us as teenagers and young women spend our whole lives trying not to get pregnant and when you feel like you're ready your bady does some crazy things to you. I just hate the option being taken away from us!!

You have some symptoms of PCOS it sounds like... I diagnosed myself with it and I was right!  I had something similar happen when I went off BC, ended up getting AF for 2 months straight until I finally went to the Dr.  They ran some tests and, sure enough, PCOS.  Definitely bring up PCOS when you go to the Dr. so they run the appropriate tests!  Good luck and keep us posted!


And yes, I know what you mean... I actually did get pregnant unexpectedly when I was younger.  And now that we are trying for another and actually planning, we are having trouble.  Life is so strange that way!!


I know it's hard, but try to stay positive.  Lots of women with PCOS conceive, it just takes a little longer and extra care in planning! :) (I need to take my own advice- LOL)

thanks allie, its great to know someone else can relate. If my lack of a cycle indeed was attributed to stress then LORD knows this certainly didn't help

I wouldn't worry about early menopause.  I just looked it up and I have a ton of the same symptoms but it looks like it's super rare.  I thought I had PCOS but my doc didn't mention it on the phone and I don't go back to see her until 5/2...I have put on some weight and have been super stressed lately so I honestly think that is playing a part in my irregular cycles and not O'ing.  I try not to read too much online because it's scary and I tend to read a story about something and think I have it lol. 


Make an appt on Monday and get the bloodwork done to ease your mind.  Now that I had mine done and my doc said there was nothing alarming I feel so much better and hopeful.  My DH is also getting SA done next week...he is super nervous!


Sending positive thoughts your way hon!
