because I was told to wait 2 cycles before we ttc again. I'm still waiting on my first AF after d&c! I had the d&c 6 weeks ago tomorrow (4/22), and NOTHING! I was infertile for a number of years and didn't know I would ever get pg, so now I'm afraid that the d&c messed me up and I won't be able to concieve again. My cycles used to be 45-60 days long, then they miraculously went to 30 or 31 days about a year ago, and we were able to concieve. If the d&c is supposed to be like day 1, then I am on day 41!

I after 4 weeks, but no AF. Then I thought it was last week, but no AF yet. Please share some of your experiences with me. My doc says I'm fine.

Thanks,

Kerri

Kerri,

Hi, good to see you on this board!!!! I waited 2 cycles to TTC. My 1st AF took 5 weeks, same with 2nd. My DR said it could take up to 6 months for some women to get back on schedule. So everyone is different. I'm sure there is nothing wrong with you. Have you had your HCG levels checked? Mine took 6 weeks to get to 0, If your levels are above 5, that could be a reason for no AF. Remember average is 4-6 weeks with some ladies as long as 8 weeks. I'm sure AF will visit you soon. Good luck sweetie.

Baby dust to you....

Kerri,

Don't worry too much about the 6 months. It has been 4 months since my m/c. I was worried because I have been using OPK and never got a ++ (until this month). I asked my DR about clomid to help with ovulation. She said after 6 months if I haven't O'd yet then we would talk. Most women start ovulating and back on schedule 2-6 months. Well she was right. It is so frusrtating but I am keeping my fingers crossed this month and BDing like crazy!!!

Most of the ladies that were here when I started are already on the PAL board, so that is good news.

I am sure AF will be knocking on your door soon. Keep us posted!!!
