    Hi Meghaa,
    Check your BMI. If you are in the higher range, please try to cut down unnecessay weight! That might help you.
    Figure out which hormone is out of balance and control it. That will help you to get regular periods.
    All the best.

    Easier said than done :( Been trying but its too hard and I am an impatient person. Tend to lose motivation.. Its just too easy to relax.. The doctor doesnt express any concern over my BMI - its 27 ish .. I know it should be below 25 but my body composition is the opposite of skinny!

    How do I do that? My blood work looks 'normal' apparently. Going in for an Ultra sound and HSG in the next couple of weeks ( fingers crossed).. Acupuncture starts tomorrow.
    Nothing has come easily to me. But I cant say good things have not come after a looong , painful wait. So I have hope.

    Dear Megha,

    Hope the hormones like FSH,LH,TSH,PRL are tested . Don't worry dear soon everything will fall in place .

    Good luck for your HSG test .

    Thank you luckwaves.
    Yes , all the harmone levels look normal. Estradiol was high once but when it was repeated during a period (Provera induced) it was normal again.
    So I look 'normal' on paper except that I dont get periods for months. I am on provera again now.
    Doctor said to take Provera every 2-3 months and keep using OPK and keep trying.
    She said to wait until 12 months before she starts clomid...

    If you have not had one, ask for a complete thyroid panel from your physician. It is important to keep the thyroid numbers within a certain range while TTC, and it is simple to test and treat if necessary.

    Malstorm ,

    I have had my TSH checked as part of routine physicals - they have always been on the low side of normal.
    Is the Thyroid panel different from the regular TSH blood test?
