Hey there <3 thanks for the welcome.

we honestly haven't been TTC very long (just a few weeks) but I guess I'm a little paranoid because I've been on Depo Provera for like 10 years. Even before that my periods as far as I can recall were never regular.

I know I'm making a mountain out of a molehill but at this point I'm really just trying to get all the information I can on what my body SHOULD be doing to see if what I AM doing is normal.

I haven't had a Depo shot since last feb and my periods have come back but they are very random and sporadic it seems, might just need a little more time. My last period was 11/05. I bought a BBT therm and I just got it yesterday in the mail so as soon as AF rolls around I'm going to start charting that. Any advice?

Also, I am a little confused by some of the acronyms. Whats DPO and CD?

Welcome Lotus, DPO= days past ovulation and CD= cycle day. you will probably need to give your body a while since being on that shot to start ovulating. since my m/c(miscarriage) back in Feb i started taking Fertilaid for Women to get my ovaries producing again. doing the BBT chart now will be really good practice to get in. you can also start using OPKs (ovulation predictor kit) to get the feel of the results. you may want to setup a pre-conception appointment with your doc and have him run some blood work on your hormones to see if you are able to start your ovaries. it will also identify any problems you may have and not be aware of.
Feel free to ask us anything like BabiesRUS2010 said there is no such thing as TMI on here.

Hey thanks for the reply!

Yeah in feb it will be a year since having stopped the shot.

Getting into the doc is a good idea but tough to manage here. I moved to another city last march to be with my other half. Unfortunately doctors in canada in Ottawa anyway are extremely hard to find. I can always go back to my old doctor but its a 2 hour drive and I work mon to fri so it will take some planning but I guess it couldn't hurt! I'll give her a call on monday.

Also, does fertile aid actually work? I'm a little sceptical of herbal remedies.

for me it has, i have never received a positive on an OPK before and the last cycle i did. i am half way thru the 2nd bottle now maybe a little further than that, and now im starting to think positive. even though we didnt receive a BFP this month my cycles are back on track. they were normally 33-35 days long bleeding for 7-10days strait, now they are 27-28 days apart and now only bleeding for 3-4days. but your body is diff and it will work to your body. my bbs grew a little and i became more sensitive. sex is alot better for me. Wink

Steel Lotus-I think Fairhaven -the makers of fertile aid and cm products are pretty reputuable. I take Fertile CM since my periods are regular and I just don't have enough cervical mucous by the time I ovulate. That has been working really well. But I also use Pre-seed as a lubricant and just started really using Instead Cups after I baby dance for an added advantage.

BabiesRUS2010 is right fairhaven.com is where i get mine. if you order from this site you won't be able to get your 10% off. go to Fairhaven.com and when you order put in the promotional code "Fertileaidsale". i think the bottle is like 26.95 after you put that in depending on where you live at for sales tax.
now one of the other side effects i had in the beginning was hot flashes at night. i am always the one that freezes and my husband is like 105 degrees all the time. Laughing out loud it was hilarious cause i freezed him out and i told him now you know how i feel when you have the house at 65degrees during winter and i'm walking around in thermals and sweat outfits with a queen sized comforter wrapped around me. Big smile boy was i laughing

Hahah yeah thats prolly gonna happen to us to. even as it is, I cracked the window yesterday lol he gets so mad when I turn the heat off, now he'll prolly have to deal with a fan too lol

I'm a little confused, I'm on day 30 of my cycle and they're not consistent or regular, but I'm surprised because I have localized cramping on the right side. I'm wondering if this is ovary pain, and if it is, why its occuring so late in my cycle? I'm sure AF is coming, I was bawling last night and craving sweets, I'm just confused by the pain.

we bd'd today, and that was also slightly painful, it felt like he was hitting my cervix. is that only because AF is getting close? I've never noticed pain like that before.

sorry for the TMI =(

probably it sounds like it. your ovaries could be getting ready to jumpstart themselves. how long did you say you were TTC? and do you know if you have ovulated yet in this cycle by having + on any tests you might have taken?
