Well.....we tested.

So, I came off my Depo in June, and DH and I are in that "not preventing" it stage.  I had one period back in Sept, (nothing but PMS symptoms in October).  And was just feeling weird the past couple of days.  I know that it can take awhile to become "fertile" again, I just hate not knowing whats going on, and having no way to track anything kwim? 


So we tested this morning, and a big negative.  I'm lost, I don't know to be happy or sad.  DH and I would LOVE a family.  And I know when the time is right it will happen, but I just needed to get it out, since this isn't something that we are talking about to anyone.

So sorry about this TigerGirl.  *HUGS* to you.  I know it's hard when you really want something, to believe in the "it will happen when it's supposed to" line.  Stay positive and enjoy the process!!  That's what DH and I are trying to do.  I hope good things come your way soon!!

I know exactly how you feel hon. We went off BC back in June and we just tested a week ago after my period was more than a week late - negative. Have you looked into tracking your cycle to know when you're ovulating? I've done temperature checks and cervical mucus tests to get an idea for when I'm "fertile" and I'm probably going to start up again now that we're TTC in earnest.

Oh Tiger, I'm sorry :( (((((((((((hugs)))))))))))) It's a horrible feeling :(


If it's any consolation, myself and FI were trying for 11 months before DS was concieved and I honestly believe that the only reason we got pregnant was because we STOPPED trying!!  We were getting more and more frustrates with the bfn or af each month that we decided to go to the doc and get checked because it simply wasn't happening and lo and behold, I was 1 day late and about to head out for my birthday party and since we had a test at home I decided to take it simply becaue I knew I'd be drinking that night and that's when we got our bfp!!  Lucky I took it- would have killed me to think I had gone out on the lash while pregnant.

so sorry tiger : (


i thought that depo delayed longer than other forms of BC though, so based on that, i would think it's too soon to be trying, wouldn't it?

Thanks ladies, it really does mean a lot to have a group of women to share this with. 

@almostdunne - I was given the go ahead from my ob/gyn "to not be careful", he would like to see 3 normal periods before we start trying in earnest, but I was NEVER in my life regular, so who knows what that could mean.  Th OB/GYN said that it wouldn't hurt anything if I happend to get preg before that though. 

The good news - got AF Sunday - so we're on the road to getting back to "normal".  =)

Congrats Tiger (as weird as that sounds).  I finally got AF back today after 17 months off of Depo.  It is a LONG wait - so you are lucky that you got it so soon!!
