I went to see my specialist to find out what I need to do to get pregnant. My doctor was really good and he basically told me that I need to be getting my period to be able to ovulate and then hopefully fall pregnant.
My doctor has given me medication to bring on my period. It is called Primolut N. This drug is basically a progestogen; it has similarities to the female hormone progesterone. It is used to time the menstruation cycle and to treat failure to bleed regularly.
Lack of periods, amenorrhea, premenstrual complaints along with estrogen hormone replacement therapy and endometriosis, causes a lining of tissue to grow outside the womb. By using Primolut N it shrinks the unwanted tissue.
After I get my period I will have to take Clomiphene or known as Clomid tablets. I then take one tablet from days 5-9 of my cycle. This drug essentially will stimulate the hormones to ovulate.
After taking these tablets I will need to go for an ultrasound to verify how many eggs I have and basically see what is going on there. Then we can take it from there. Meanwhile my husband has to do a test of his own.
He needs to get a sperm binding test and unfortunately we can’t get that done till the 30th of April. So this will slow things down a bit. Emotionally I am starting to feel the effects of this already and this along with my journey with the Gym it is all just over whelming. All I do know is that I was born to be a mother and I can’t give up now when I am feeling all over the place at the moment.
When I was a little girl I used to say that when I grow up I am going to marry the most handsome man in the world and we would have a baby girl. I knew then what I wanted and I still know what I want.
My husband and I have already picked out names, if we have a boy he will be called Nicholas and if we have a girl she will be called Isabella. We decided on those names a few years ago when we started trying.
