Just want someone to listen. Long read. Sorry
Hi all, i am 31 and ttc#1.
I have arthritis and epilepsy so take a lot of meds. I have had to come off a couple as you cannot concieve on them due to their toxicity.
I am in a lot of pain due to this and a bit miserable.
Anyway, i got my mirena removed last year 23rd dec. got my first af on 25th dec so thought i was regularises quite early, good sign.
Since then, i have ovulated on cd16 cd18 and not at all. I felt strange on my 2nd cycle in feb and took a pregnancy test. It was a super super faint positive (i think!) but i got af a couple days later and was devastated. Not sure if the test was faulty or if i had an early mc/chemical. So i'm either fertile and lost it or gona have trouble cos i am not reliably ovulating :( i also don't really get ewcm- is that normal? I have a lot of cm but not the stretchy kind!
I recently had an abnormal smear teat, showing abnormal cells and hpv. I also subsequently got told i have a retroverted uterus. No idea if this will affect my chances.
This worries me so much. The odds are against me i feel. My age, my illness etc.
I am a healthy weight, i don't iften drink alcohol and i'm trying to have my 5 a day. I take conception vitamins and we are going to use preseed.
I am teying my best but i am stressed out. I am desperate for a baby. I really am. It physically hurts to think it may not happen. I hate seeing other babies because it breaks my heart.
I may be overreacting but i have a right to feel things even if they dont make sense to anyone else.
I also had an abortion about 7 yrs ago, i feel like i'm being punished for it. Thing is, i was on so many meds i dont know how i could have gone theough with the pregnancy.
I am feeling really low. I just wondered if anyone had some friendly advice or similar experiences to share with me on any of the above. Please don't judge, i know there are ladies trying years but we're still ultimately facing the same struggles and we should support each other. Good luck to all ttc.
