As most of you will know i am having problems with my AF this month....It hasn't arrived (on day 44) and i'm getting BPN's.
Don't know anything about acupuncture, just wanted to say good luck
Sassy, I know this really is getting you down, so yesterday I had a look at my chart (wasn't really charting but just writing down when AF arrived since I came off the pill in 2005)
The first month Jul it was 30 days second mth Aug 41 days I got no AF in September but arrived back in Oct, and then every month after that it was 30-40, until now it came back to 30 days.
You’re doing the right thing going to your doc but sometimes it just takes a while (up to 6 mths) for it to come back regular.
You can always try acupuncture I have a name of a few if you are in Dublin?
Just hang in there even till next Monday and maybe your doc will run some bloods for you.
Your doc will no doubt give you the best advice. If you'd like to try something complementary you could ask at a good health shop (my local one is brilliant). I know that the herb "agnus castus" is supposed to regulate your hormones and your cycle - you can get it as tablets or drops in any health shop.
Babetalk05 i would appreciate it you could give me those numbers. I am based on the northside of dublin but willing to travel.
Blackcat can you tell me when do i start taking agnus castus? ( now or wait until i get AF)
Not sure Sassy - I would imagine you could start it any time - ask in the health shop. No harm mentioning it to your dr. also and definitely if he/she puts you on anything else.
Here's some more info about it:
Btw you're not supposed to take it while pregnant so anyone on the 2ww or not sure shouldn't take it!
Something similar happened to me - had no problems with AF until TTC stopped pill last july had 2 32 day cycles and then suddenly period just stopped - went for 96 days... lots of BFN, got blood tests and have a hormone issue, which I am now being treated for. Couple of things I learnt along the way, best to get blood tests to just put your mind at rest, they can do and get results in a week. When I had a scan to check my ovaries the specialist was saying it is very common for women to exeperience post pill ammenorhea, and just not ovulate for a few months, the body needs time to regulate and can take 6 months, also getting your period doesn't mean you ovulated. The doc will sort you out with tests.
Agnus Cactus and evening primrose are supposed to be good. I go to a really great acupuncturist who specialises in female fertility can give her info to her if you want - she is in town (Dublin).
Don't worry there are loads of reasons your AF is late - and it can all be sorted out.
Best of luck
