I haven't had my period since my daughter turned one. I took out my birth control that day (Nuvaring), and haven't started anything else since. It's been seven months. It's important to note that I am currently nursing, and nursing can certainly play havoc with one's cycle. My period did return after I had my daughter, which was why I opted to go on birth control again, but since stopping the birth control, nothing.
I am seeing my OB/GYN regarding this issue. We have tested my thyroid levels, and they are a little low, so I'm currently on a thyroid medication. Aggravatingly, my insurance didn't cover my tests, though, so I can't go back for my follow-up blood test to see if the medication is working until I get my insurance sorted out. Working on it, but it takes time.
I took a pregnancy test on Monday, and it was negative. I also had a pregnancy test a month ago at my OB/GYN, and that was also negative. I decided to take one every two weeks, though, because my husband and I do continue to carve out some moments every once in a while, and without my period, how would I know?
So, I think I'm pretty much doing everything I should be doing, but it is very strange not to have a period. I worry a little that whatever is happening could affect my chances of having a second child. When I took the test at the doctor's office, I wanted that one to be negative. When I took the other test a month later, well, a part of me wanted that one to be positive. I have to wait for weird things outside of my body (insurance) to resolve to find out if I'm finally healthy, and that's an uneasy feeling.
So that's a snapshot of me right now. Anyone else experience anything similar? If not, I still appreciate the listening. :)
Have you had n ultrasound of your ovaries?
