Hi i've been trying to conceive for 8 months, i've had two children already.
I was taking cerazetta for 3 yrs when i stopped taking this my cycles came back pretty quick and was 29 day cycle for 5 months then they went to 36 day, 28 day, 27 day was my last one my cycle lasts for 5 days. My bleeding is normally medium flow first two days and then lighter lasts 3 days but this cycle was very heavy for the whole 5 days then 10 days later i had heavy bleeding for another 5 days i'm not sure not which one was actually my period as i'm trying to conceive i'm quite worried why this could happen. Is this anything to worry about? it's def not normal for me. Thank you
Welcome to ehealthforum,
It can take some time for your normal fertility to come back (depending on type and duration of birth control used). Chances of successful pregnancy depend on many factors (ovarian, uterine, hormonal, stress etc). You should consider getting a complete infertility work-up done for you and your partner to see if there are any underlying causes for the infertility/inability to conceive. Hormonal issues, problems involving ovaries and ovulation, uterine problems, cervical or vaginal infections should be ruled out for you (which could be affecting your period pattern). For your partner, semen analysis should be done to rule out infections and to confirm the quality and quantity of sperms produced. Treatment as needed (based on examination and investigations results) would be started to help you get pregnant. Combine checking cervical mucus changes and the BBT (basal body temperature) charting to predict your ovulation and time your intercourse for having fruitful results. Consider visiting your gynecologist/obstetrician for further evaluation and assistance.
