Where am I?

I still have no idea what is going on. I took tests every morning in Eugene, I got three negatives, two duds, and one inconclusive, but not in that order. And another negative when I got home. But my period hasn't shown up either. This means I'm not ovulating. This is bad. Lady Doctor said that with my IUD I was still cycling, so my cycle should be normal right away. I hope this isn't normal for me. It's been more than a month and ... nothing.

At this point what I want is just for my period to show up, so at least I can be charting and figure out WTF is going on in my body.


  1. I wondered where you were! I'm no expert, but if it's been what, 7 years?, since you've had a period, I don't think you were actually cycling. Did your IUD have hormones in it?

    I highly recommend the book "Taking Charge of Your Fertility." It taught me so much about ovulating and varying cycle lengths. Things I thought were way abnormal about me are actually quite normal.

  2. Well, I asked lady doctor the same thing, and she said that because the hormones from the IUD are localized in tiny doses, and not cyclical, you continue to cycle while you're on it, you just don't have a period very often or at all (I had one every 3-9 months) because you're not building up uterine lining.

    I actually have TCOYF. I'd like to chart, but since my schedule is so variable my waking temperatures are all over the place.
