I spoke too soon.

So, apparently, I DON'T have my period. My doctor doesn't think I ovulated this month. She thinks I'm just having "breakthrough bleeding".
Actually, she thinks I may not have ovulated for several months.

Um, I'm no science wiz, but I'm pretty sure you need to ovulate in order to get pregnant.

Wha? Well, did she tell you what she's going to DO about that?

What makes her think that? Don't lose heart -- my doctor told me I was ovulating too late, my eggs were probably no good and I wouldn't be able to get pregnant without help. I cried for a full 24 hours before I had a positive pregnancy test. Exactly 8 months to the day after that ill-fated doctor's appointment, I had Rose. Go figure. Sometimes doctors really don't know what they're talking about.

I just realized that my comment sounded a little like a slight on doctors, which it wasn't intended to at all, just that sometimes EVEN doctors make mistakes :) Just wanted to clarify.

If you haven't ovulated in months, would you have had a period for months?

Clueless here.

Have you tried the ovulation predictor test thingy? I wonder how she could know if you haven't ovulated in months.

There's always clomid... don't give up hope sweetie.

That sucks. Just keep bumping uglies. I know it isnt conducive to baby making in the medical sense, but some booze really gets the juices flowing if you know what I mean. I swear I concieved 2 kids that way. VIVA LA GIN!

I have no clue about the specifics of conception, having studiously avoided that my entire life, but I'd say this warrants more specialistical investigation.

But you're a doctor's wife. You probably already know that.

Nilbo, take your fingers out of your ears and stop bein' a pussy about it. Just think what you can learn in here!

I've read the last few posts. I think being disappointed at not being pregnant before you were "really, really" trying is a definite sign to start trying. You won't know until you try for several months about the ovulation thing. I mean you can do the OTC predictors, or your doc can do a uterine biopsy (ouch), or you can just start having lots of hot sex and see what happens. Guess which one I'd recommend first?

And BTW, will you please go kick Dawn's ass?

Please forgive the lurker...I truly do not mean to intrude or butt in but sometimes my big fat mouth possesses my fingers and I must type a out a comment....and I think Torrie checks this more than straight e-mail. :)

Torrie dahling, do not worry about this. This is not at all medically weird. In fact, women ovulate 10 times a year, NOT 12. This is Bio 101 info, I promise you. I know some women will disagree because they suffer monthly and you can set your watch by their cycles. This only proves just how wonderfully unique each one of us ladies truly is. But on average, this is not the case.

All I get is breakthrough bleeding (medically induced due to a widdle pill I take daily because, well....ya know, who cares? It's a long story and this is about you, not me...) and I'm assured that I am as able to have kids as the next chick. This does not indicate anything about your fertility, which I know would be your big concern. You needn't worry at all. You know I would never lie to you or tell you what I think you want to hear. You know me as far more direct, blunt and truthful to do such a thing. You're perfect, dahling. It's all good. You got a natural get out of cramps free card this month. Nothing more.

So looks like I'll be the last child-free chick standing in this family soon, huh? Hey can you do me a favor and when he/she is born don't tell Kara? I really don't want to/need to hear it. ;)

The same thing happened to me. I would have my "period" but I wasn't ovulating. My gyn put me on one round of a medication (I can't remember what the damn name was) to make me ovulate and within three weeks we had gotten pregnant. We had tried for over a year with no luck.

Good luck!!!
