    Hi ladies hoping some of you can help I'm really confused don't even know if I'm posting in the right section, I haven't had a visit from af for 2 and a half years I was on the depo for 2 I've been off it since January and ttc #2 but had no af I also have other past medical history recurrent miscarriages and had chemotherapy so that was always a concern it would eventually affect my fertility, to cut a long story short I have seen a gynae/ fertility specialist who gave me norethisterone to help start af, before I seen her I had a scan of my womb etc and it showed an egg ready for me to ovulate I done an ovulation test on the 16th which looked positive but then the following Wednesday was started on these tablets I should have had a bleed 2-3 days after stopping them which I haven't it's now been 9/10days but yesterday I had the tiniest amount of spotting and thought yes this is it then it stopped and it was very light in colour, today round about the same time the same thing again and then nothing else since, my boobs are not tender but I have had slight cramps and terrible head aches but I just don't know which type of bleeding this could be the start of especially because I don't know if I definatelt ovulated when I thought I did or if I could have ovulated again I'm driving myself mad

    Hi Blonde_ditz77

    I think every month you have to visit your doctor to confirm when is your ovulation date & exact time in order to conceive.... You maybe have PCOS according to your syptoms mentioned or if you under any birth contol pills you have to tune your regular AF back to normal in order to TTC naturally... Otherwise you have to undergo some fertility treatment with your gynae.... Once you ovulate and egg released you have to BD within 24hrs in order to fertilise...If not you have to wait for next cycle.... I hope this helps.... Baby dust for you!!!

    How long ago was your positive ovulation? Maybe consider taking a pregnancy test. If nothing else it will rule that out so you have a better idea what is going on. I dont think norethisterone works for everyone to restart their period or it can take longer for some women to start after. Let us know how you get on.

    I'm sure it's radiation therapy in the area of the ovaries and womb that's more likely to reduce fertility than chemotherapy itself, I could be wrong but that's what I thought. And if you had a scan showing an egg ready to ovulate than to me it's likely that it did about 24-48 hours after the positive ovulation test and thus you could be pregnant by about 6 weeks I reckon by now if you didn't have af. Did you do a test yet?

    Maybe doing a HPT would be a good idea, just to see either way if that is picking anything up? If not are you able to get an appointment anytime sooner even with your GP? Just to explain the situation. I know my GP who is female is really understanding of all the nonsense I'll phone about (not saying what you're going through is nonsense btw). Either way I hope that you find a solution that sets your mind at ease either way. FX for you that this could be your BFP though :)

    Most women get their period 14 days after they ovulate. If you ovulated on the 16th that would make your af due the end of Sep. That was almost 3 weeks ago so if you got pregnant then any brand of test should give you a good clear line by now. If you didn't ovulate then and actually ovulated within the last two weeks or so it could be too early to show in which case its a good idea to test again in a few days otherwise I think you can take the BFN as correct. Of course I would probably test again anyway because I will poas for any excuse :).

    Haha thanks for your help I have no clue if I did actually ovulate because I haven't had an af for nearly 3 years now I don't have a clue when to expect one and obviously although I got the positive ovulation test we don't know if I actually did, it's all so confusing!! Lol
