  • I had irregular periods for over a year myself. I would just take a pregnancy test once every 20-30 days. It got expensive but at least I knew if I were pregnant or not. You can take a progesterone series monthly to jump-start your period each month until it starts to happen again naturally. If you are trying to get pregnant, your doctor might pair your progesterone series with clomid (which stimulates ovulation). Try to eat as healthy as possible and exercise. Reduce the sugar (too much sugar can cause your body to over-produce insulin. Excess insulin can interfere with ovulation). Good luck!

  • Look into the book called "Taking Charge of your Fertility". You can get more info on it at Amazon. It may help you quite a bit with what you're going through. Plus, it's fascinating to read!

  • Something you can look into is discussing this with your OB and they may be able to "jump-start" you by giving you a series of 5 pills which will give you a period. Also, if you've been breastfeeding (or stopped within the past 3 to 6 months) that can mess with your cycle a bit.

    Then again, if I got pregnant right now I'd have to honestly answer the question of LMP date as January 26, 2006 - when I got pregnant with my son ... I'd been on Depo for almost 2 years and just stopped back in November so I haven't had a period sicne I got pregnant.
