AF you evil witch!

May 31, 2015 - 11 comments

So I took birth control for 2 months ( as per gyno recommendation) and I tried to tolerate it but it was causing chest pressure and sometimes pain (had this same side effect years ago)SO after the 2nd full pack was gone I stopped.  Stopping it as soon as the full pack was over allowed my body to have a period and I've taken nothing since then.  SO with all this wonderful stress going on I'M SURE, I'm 5 days late.  Lovely, just one more thing to add to my hopeless pile.  So evil!!!  I'm not even tempted to test and I'll probably never test unless I'm like 3 months down the road and still no period.  You ladies know how it is.  I just don't see the point. I don't need the test to tell me what I already know.  As depressing as it is.

I know Des, but there's always hope! I've wasted more money on tests to tell me what I already know then you can imagine but you never know... Wait a few more days and then just see... Take a chance :) I did... One last time I said and lol at me now :)

Big hugs!  Nothing worse than AF mind games. Thinking of you!

It's the last thing you need right now. I'm sorry my dear. Your always on my mind and in my prayers.  Sometimes things can feel so overwhelmingly hopeless.  Maybe your doc would consider giving you something like Provera to bring your cycles on when AF is running really late.

Ugh, I hate BC pills, stopping them, starting them, being on them, anything!!! I've been on them for a total of about 6-7 years and I've always had problems but am too scared to try anything else!

The back and forth is the worst. I'm so sorry you're going through this - again! I hope AF makes up her mind one way or the other for you soon.

Kellie thank you and you are right. You just never know but I wouldn't be lying if I said I highly doubt it.  That's why I know you all know what I'm talking about and how I'm feeling.  Today is the 6th day. Woohoo :S and still nothing.  I just want her to come on already.  IF I were to test and that's the biggest "if" ever it probably won't be for another week or 2.  If she's gonna show her ugly a$$ self I want her to go ahead and get it over with.

They are the worst TTC, tysm!

E, ugh I know that's what I was thinking.  One more thing going on in my life lol.  It would make things So much better if it were for a good reason but I know in my heart it's just toying with me.  IF I test in about another week or 2 and it's negative (obviously gonna be) then I'll go to the Dr. and get this ball rolling.  Get it over with.  So annoying!!  Thank you!

KTowne, that's the thing.  I've never had problems before.  I took it for a full year and a half about 4 years ago and as soon as I stopped my periods kicked back in like normal.  I know I'm older now and that could play a part and also the fact that it was a different birth control this time.  Only time will tell.  Either way, it *****! lol  I don't see how you do it other than just trying to deal with it the best you can.  Thank you also!

Thank you Heather.  Yes it is.  I want to get it over with lol.

Well hopefully AF shows soon, and if it doesn't, it damn well better be because of a BFP, lol! Anything yet?

UPDATE!  The witch showed bright and early this morning.  Lovely.  Oh well, so ready to get it over with and no more wondering where she's at.  That's one thing I can say... she NEVER lets me down :S  She always shows and I'm thankful she's regular and on time.  I'm sure that week glitch was because of stopping the birth control.  So anyways, off we go lol

I'm glad she made up her mind. I've had the same thing happen coming off of BC - being a week late. Hopefully she isn't too hard on you. I know your periods can be pretty painful (to say the least). Let's hope she's at least easy on  you this month!!
