    Irregular periods date

    Hi ...I got pregnant right away after my marriage, but unfortuntly after 6-7 weeks, had miscarrige and got D&C done this year. We started trying after two months and till now no result. Its been 5 months and I am loosing hope. Doctor told me to wait for six months. Sometime it feels like it will never happen.

    I get my periods every month, but the problem is sometime I get my periods after 23 days and sometime after 31 days. I use Ovulation kit every month, but wasted. Not knowing my exact time for periods could be the reason for missing my chance too. How should I find out the approx. time for my periods and ovulation?

    Thank you.

    Dear Sudha

    Relax! I know it must be heart-breaking but I have gone thru' this and I got to know that 1 in 3 pregnancies end this way,sometimes even before the woman knows that she is pregnant. I don't know the reason in your case but for me it was the Hcg hormone being low. In November 2006,I was pregnant the second time and had fixed my appointment with the doctor for the 9th week.Before that,at 5 weeks ,I had urine test etc done which had confirmed pregnancy.But at the 9th week ultrasound,they found that the foetus had not developed beyond the 3 week and then a blood test confirmed that HCG count was low.The medical term for this is Blighted Ovum or missed miscarriage.I had to do a D & C too.Don't worry,all will go well.It is a simple procedure and you will be in hospital only for 1-2 hrs or so_Once you come back,you should take rest for a day atleast.

    Don't worry,you will conceive again very soon.All the best.

    It's the same thing they told me too..on probing further I got to know regarding the hormone..maybe you can ask your doctor for the details. I am telling you this because I heard some people may need treatment for this inorder to conceive again.In my case,I did not need any treatment and without that I conceived again.I don't want to scare you but it is better to check to be sure.
