  • Im not sure but you think you would just track when you ovulate.. and test 15-20 after ovulating... that should be more then enough time...

  • You could take your temp every morning and chart to try and determine if you are ovulating.

  • My son is 19 months and I haven't had a period yet either - I am still actively breastfeeding and my periods have always been erratic. I am not TTC so I don't really complain. But when I got pregnant, I had 3 months of no period, then had a period for a day and a half, then got pregnant. Clearly my body was ovulating, but not regularly, so the fact that I got pregnant was sort of lucky. I was on my way towards having fertility treatments but we got pregnant before we made the appointment. I'd test maybe every 2 weeks, but also go back to the doc and have them explain to you exactly why you are not having periods and what they can do to help you along.

  • If you are not bleeding you are not ovulating. If you ovulate you WILL bleed (unless you get pregnant).

    Are you breastfeeding? That can delay ovulation for years.

  • You Prolactin levels are probably still high from breast feeding. Tell your new doctor to check the level of your Prolactin. I just found out that the reason I wasn't getting my period and not ovulating because of my prolactin level.

    Good luck to you.

  • Your doing what I was going to suggest.......get a new ob....not having a period for 2 years doesn't sound right to me at all. Good luck hon

  • If you can afford the testing, I'd test every 28 days or so (maybe the same day of every month) until your period returns or you conceive. If the test is positive, it's positive, and if it's too early, it'll get caught on the next one. Since many women TTCing test monthly anyhow, this doesn't actually end up being much different other than that you don't have a pointer on when to test.

  • Breastfeeding can definitely delay your periods for a prolonged period of time (if you have been).Otherwise, get an new OB (the old one doesn't sound very professional).
