Pick one from a hat... Mommy Pwnt Pwnt[ATE] 3 kids; Hawaii 10344 posts
6th Mar '13

Just got home from the doctor and it really didn't clear up what could be going on. It's like she picked things from a hat and thought it could be the issue.



She said it could be PCOS, Endometriosis, Anemia, Thyroid issues... you name it shes checking for it. I told her all my history and she thinks the mirena could still be causing my periods to be wacky (5mo post removal???) I guess I will know in a few days what the results say.



Oh and she does believe what I am having now is a period... at least we know it's not limbo anymore.



Pointlessss

A lot of those things have some similar symptoms so she's testing for them so she can pinpoint which one it is. It doesn't sound like she's just picking them out of a hat.

Ohh, okay, gotcha. Hopefully you guys can figure it out soon, because I think the hardest part is not knowing wtf is going on. Once you can name it, it seems like it's easier to deal with.

I have ALWAYS believed that. If I just knew I would be better with dealing. I will know in a few days.

Ya know...I know that Mirena causes some issues, but I honestly don't think this is it. My midwife told me it would be at least 3 months to get pregnant, so 5 months is totally within reason, but she never EVER mentioned what youre going through. I know plenty of people who have gotten pregnant soon after, within months, so I just don't think it's it. I would go back and demand more testing if you are still concerned.
How was your cycle while on Mirena? Were you regular? If not, maybe that is why your cycle is screwy--its just catching up? But I was told that you go back to ovulating like normal after it was taken out. So that's what I don't get....sure, screwy periods, but you dont always have to OVULATE to have a period. Kwim?
Not to mention, you are SO worried.....you know stress isn't good for you! I hate to be -that girl- but I just want to help. I hate seeing you so desperate. I bet it'll just happen when you give up :P

Sorry just got on and saw this.



I don't think it's the mirena honestly... I think something is messed up with my hormones. They have my results in though and I am just waiting for them to call me. While mirena was in I had no periods at all... so I think my hormones are just out of whack :( and I have already told DH if something comes up on the tests or if we don't get pregnant this month I am done. The stress is too much to deal with on top of all the other things going on.

I know how hard this is for you...or rather, can empathize. But I seriously think once you try HARD to get the baby thought out of your head, you'll turn up pregnant. It's karma laughing at our stress.
