Why doesn’t anything go right for me? I was all giddy and on the right track and on progesterones. I’m only supposed to be on it for 7 days. 7 days passed and nothing, no period. It was Saturday evening and I didn’t know what to do. My doctor doesn’t work the weekends and I know that he wouldn’t even be able to get back to me via email until Monday. No period, 7 days, no one to talk to..what to do?
Do I just take the progesterones even though they said 7 days or do I just don’t take it? I made the same mistake when I was on birth control pills the last time I was on it again. Before my wedding, I wasn’t on birth control pills and everything was NORMAL..I had my period, I was ovulating, everything was dandy, but I really messed things up. I had forgotten what it was like to be on the pill and most important “TAKE IT EVERY DAY AT THE SAME TIME.” STUPID ME! I would take a pill at 9 AM and then the next day, I didn’t want to worry about it later on that night, so I would take it like around 8 AM. HELLOOOO! Hormones take 24 hours and stuff go on, almost like time released hormones, and here I am taking it whenever. There was even a few, not once, or twice, but a FEW times where I missed 3 days and the box said to dispose of it after 2 days of missing it, but I just swallowed 3. I know I know..you are all probably thinking that I am nuts. I know..I am! I am the one that brought this whole infertility thing on myself. I totally didn’t know that all of this would happen, you know. That and also being 30 already.
“Women in their thirties will experience a decline in their fertility such that the fertility rate per month is about 15%. ” (http://www.socalfertility.com/age-and-fertility.html) Check out the cool chart I found from http://www.advancedfertility.com/age.htm:
Pretty cool, huh. I found it interesting. Anyways..back to my dilemma. I decided that I would not make the same mistake, so I didn’t take it. On the 8th day..TA-DAH! My period came! I swear, it’s like this ongoing battle with me and my period and me and my eggs. I am telling you..I WILL WIN THIS!!
