I am 29 years old and have been off of the depo shot for 18 months. My period started again a year after I came off the shot, but this was the first month I felt ovulation.
Things I did this month:
Took lots of vitamins: prenatal, vitamin E, CQ-10 and fish oil
Ate pineapple core around ovulation (only cause it was at a party... Ahaha)
Cut back on drinking
Used OPKs (target brand & they worked great)
Put legs on the wall for 15 minutes after sex around ovulation
0-1 dpo: felt ovulation
3-5 dpo: nothing
6 dpo: woke in the middle of the night with pain on my lower left side for a shot while
7 dpo- 8 dpo: nothing
9 dpo: took a pregnancy test, negative
10-11 dpo: noticed a slight ache around my left ovary & sore boobs (happens every month with AF)
12 dpo: 2 positive pregnancy tests with my first pee of the day!!!!
13 -14 dpo: just more slight aches on my left ovary and sore nipples and boobs.
Weird coincidence: we conceived on my mother in law's birthday and we will be due on my father in law's birthday.
Keeping an eye on this slightly sore left side. I believe it is the corpus luteum and not ectopic. I've read some women can feel it during the first trimester. I Have a doc's appointment next week and My husband and I are threw the roof. I spent way too much time reading crap online about pregnancy, but when a women wants something there is no stopping her I suppose. I could recommend you not stress, but I know how it is. I think reading these success stories is a good way to manage stress. It gives you hope and keeps things positive. I would also recommend a pregnancy tracker app for your iPhone. I used Kindara and it was great! Best of luck and health to all of you!!!
