ok, so here it is... (i apologize in advance for the long post)
my husband and I have been TTC for over a year now, and month after month we get the unfortunate monthly gift.
2 years ago i gave birth to a healthy baby boy, prior to becoming pregnant with him we tried for 6 years only to find out that i was not getting pregnant due to having Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome. the dr. advised me to change my diet, gave me Metformin to take and i became pregnant immediately. A year after he was born we decided to try for one more before ending the baby chapter in our lives. I continued to keep my diet healthy and am still taking Metformin. My periods have been regular every month since he was born up until June. 2011 when they started getting lighter, longer apart (which gave us a glimmer of hope when we thought we might be late due to pregnancy) only to see a neg HPT and period would start) the rollercoaster of emotions of being excited one minute and sad the next was almost making us want to quit trying, so we did. I threw the calendar away, stopped scheduling our intimate time and even went to see the dr. about possible birth control. he told me to have a blood test done on day 2-3 of my cycle to rule out any hormonal or thyroid problems before we decide to do anything. so here i am thinking my period would start on Nov. 25, 2011 (last period was Oct 23) and, nothing. now, 7 days late no preg. symptoms except frequent urination and some mild cramping & sweating, and took a HPT on Nov. 28 and sadly it was negative. i started having this menthol taste in my mouth and throat about a week ago, looked it up and said it could be a sign of menopause... which could definitely explain my lack of periods and symptoms but im only 31, is this normal?? my next app. with the dr. isnt until Januaryand im starting to feel a little desperate. hoping someone can help...thanks.
