Medication...?

My husband and I decided that we wanted to try for a baby last June. I stopped taking birth control that July after taking it for about 7 years. My cycle started out pretty normal then in October I stopped getting it. I kept testing negative and called my doctor who then have me some medication in december that was supposed to kick start my cycle again. It worked and I had regular (28-33 day) cycles until now...I didn't get a period in April and am currently testing negative. It has been 43 days since my last period. Again a call to my doctor who said if I didn't get it and still tested negative at the 8 week mark from the last one, she would prescribe me the same medication to try and kick start the cycle. So here's my problem.... What is the medication doing to my body and if I keep taking it every couple of months how is my body going to re-regulate itself? I know it's out of whack because of the birth control, and I don't know that different medication is the answer. So my question to you all...has anything like this ever happened to you? What should I do? Just take the medication the doctor is saying or is there something else to do that will help kick start the cycle without putting more medication in my body?

    I don't know. You can always get a second opinion, especially if your instinct is telling you no to this drug. And no this hasn't happened to me but maybe one of the other moms will share their experience.

      How is your health otherwise? Is your weigh at health place for your height? Have you had a blood test recently? Thyroid levels normal?

      I would probably ask for a physical and blood work if has been while since your last one. I have heard many women say exercise and a healthy diet help regular their cycle.

      I hate birth control, it took my body so long to normalize after I stopped taking it. I hope you can find something that works for you soon and that you get pregnant, good luck!
