I’m posting this here because I don’t really have anyone to talk to about this. Almost all of my friends have or are having babies and I think it makes them feel bad when I bring it up.
[name_u]Ever[/name_u] since puberty I have always had brown spotting days before my period. It went away with birth control. With my ex, I got pregnant, but miscarried at the 6 week mark. The doctor said it could possibly be from low progesterone, but they don’t do testing unless you have multiple miscarriages.
[name_f]My[/name_f] ex and I divorced.
It’s been 3 years since my miscarriage. I’m now 31. [name_f]My[/name_f] new partner and I don’t want to have kids for another 2ish years.
In [name_u]January[/name_u] I noticed that I was spotting after sex, and sex felt less comfortable. I went to my doctor, he did a pap, it came back fine. He said I seemed a little dry. He recommended I go off the pill and wait 3 months. I waited, the spotting continued. So I got an internal ultrasound. Everything looks perfect.
But the brown spotting before my period is happening. I’m temping and it looks like I’m ovulating. And I’m still spotting after sex.
[name_f]My[/name_f] doctor referred me to a gyno, but it will be months before my appointment and I feel like I’m going insane. I don’t want babies right now, but I’m terrified of being told that I can’t have them. I’m afraid that I have a low egg count and being told it’s too late. I’m trying not to google worst case scenarios, but frustration is building.
Does any one have any suggestions? Ways to ease the mind? Advice?
