JRO - May 13

Hey ladies, all your information has been so helpful. I started ttc 1 month ago. My last af was 4-15, but I am not sure if I am on a 28 day cylce or 35. I was on the patch for almost 2 yrs. I had mild cramping on the 4,5,and 6 then it stoped (thought maybe it was ovulation), but I have been having weird cramps for the last 3 days. I did not use to have af cramps until after my af started and then it was only occasionally. Do you think my body is cramping because I was on the patch so long and now my body is having to do things with out free hormones? Could it be I am pregnant? I don't know...my lower back has been hurting alot also and the cramping goes on off and on all day long. Anyway have any advice. Thanks....and may God Bless all of your ventures in ttc.

JRO, I understand you started to ttc. Give it 3 months for everything to be out of your system. Keep tracking your cycle. I just stopped my patch on 1/05 and had some break threw bleeding 15-19 then started a period on 30-3 of 2/05 then again on 3/2-3-5 and then again 3/30. I waited for the next month to come and no period. I had a 27-31day cycle so I waitted to May 4 and no period. BFP. I'm about 7 weeks pregnant. So be patient. I understand it's hard but if you continue on these site you will learn alot of things. Good luck. My pregnancy symptoms=sneezing, congested, sore b___bs, veins, heartburn, nauseas, tired, and feeling very hot. temp 98.3 and above.

THanks Erica, I hate having to figure out how my body is going to function again since using the patch for a while. Congrats on your BFP. I am so happy for you. God Bless.

The good thing is that you were using the patch and it works just like the pill. U can get pregnant the minute u stop. If you really want to get pregnat and want to miss the chance. Just bd every other day after your af until you next af. That what I did. Plus staye in bed for 15 minuts afterwards. Positions that really work is Doogy Style and Him on Top. Try to have and orgasim first or at least a few minuts after his. That will help your utures contract and suck up all the s____n.

Good advice...I did try that the last month, every other day, I am not sure when my af is going to come this month sometime between the 15 and the 17th, so maybe it won't. I just can't stand this cramping that has been going on for the last 2 days, I never had af cramps before and if I did get them it was after af started. And this cramps feel different, but I may just be reading into things. Did you have any cramping?

How do they feel. More like a pulling sensation. Or is it more in one side.

It's strange....sometimes the cramps fill centered over my Right ovary and then at times it is right in the middle. My lower back has also been aching for the last few days.....which also never happened when I had my af....of course I keep telling myself that it is all in my head and I am going to have my af any day.

JRO, it seems to me like ovulation cramps, do you also have more cm than usual. Its funny because theres times that you think that you will ovulate 14 days after af and its not true. So if you are feeling cramps more in one side that means that one of you ovarys is getting ready to realeas the follicle. I would baby dance tonight with you hubby. Like I said be patient and don't stress overy it. Because it makes it harder to get pregnant.

Hey Jro. Im in the same boat. I took my patch off on 04-20 had break through bleeding 04-24 and still no period now. Im having lots of little cramps and many other unusual symptons. I called my doctor and asked when I should go in for blood test since I have not gotten period. They said thats normal not to see them for 2 months since it takes awhile for your body. Still negative on prego test. very frustrating.

Hey ladies, So I went to the dct. to find out what was up and nothing...of course. But my af did start, but on May 26th. A whole month and two weeks after my last period. Hopefully my af will start becoming regular so I know when I am ovulating. It was frustrating just waiting around for af to start. If no af then no ovulating and no baby. Glad it finally started. God Bless to all of those that are trying to conceive. God has perfect timing we just have to be willing to wait....patiently.....I am not so good at that.
