Katy - July 18

I went off bc pills in November, still have very irregular periods, coming every three months. I have had one child 6 yrs ago and stayed on b/c for 5 yrs. Any one offer advice? i want another child with new husband, tired of missing period and taking test only to see it be negative. OB/GYN gave me pills to start period but it started by itself in May, though now still hasn't started. Help!

I went off of the bcp about 8 months ago when we decided to ttc. I still have not had a period yet. I know what your going thru. Try to keep positive during this time. I have been using the fern scope everyday. And it just showed about 2 wks ago that I was ovulating which was GREAT news. Good Luck....and baby dust to all...

Well, it has been 13 months.... I am 31, and I was on the pill for 13 years. I had an HSG last month. Starting Clomid this month! My best advice is to go to the MD,and get Clomid!!

The fern scope is an ovulation test. You have to spit on the slide and then look through it like a microscope. When a fern like pattern appears that means you are ovulating. I have one but didn't ever see a fern like pattern. I think the ovulation test sticks are much better.

The only reason I got the fern scope was bc I had very irregular period and getting the ovulation sticks are too much money when I would have to use it all the time. So the best choice for me was the fern scope.
