I am 29 year old, 5.4, 67 kg. married since a year and trying to conceive. I have been tracking my periods since a year this is the status -
I have skipped my periods for a month if I do not take Primolut N tablets. Hence, I have a tendency to take 5 tablets to induce periods regularly on a monthly basis. Last period that I got on tablets was 14th April 2011. Then I stopped the tablets and started herbal medicine (Angus Castus). Checked my ovulation using OPK and also monitored my cervical mucus. Got ewcm on 13th May morning, hence we had unprotected sex on 13th May night. I must highlight that my LH hormone was not high enough to be detected on OPKs as I would get only faint lines, hence went with the more traditional method of ewcm.
I have not got my periods since 14th April. I took hpt at 14dpo, 18dpo and 20dpo – considering 13th May as my day of ovulation. I have got –ve hpt, but ever since 13th may, I have experienced sinus problems, feel more tired than normal pms, feel tingly sensation on my lower abdomen, feel constipated, want to sleep all the time.
I am in UK and I approached my GP who suggested FMU to be tested. I have a history of cystic ovaries (as a child since I got my periods at the age of 11 – I was in India at that time). Its hard to get hold of gyno here and I am unable to convince my GP to get my harmones checked and do sonography to check my cysts (if I have them). GPs here tend to follow a process and unless I do not tick all boxes for their procedure, I will not get appointment with the gyno.
Sorry about the long story – but please can you help me. Much Much appreciated. Many Thanks!
