Struggling to get pregnant w/number 2

I had my son 10/2014 and ever since my periods have been so irregular. I can go 6 months with no period. While some doctors say it’s a milder form of PCOS another says he’s unsure and I have now done 2 rounds of 10 days of Provera. First was last year and it did induce my period and my cycle even came on it’s on for 3 months straight, but then again now nothing. Just finished 10 days this past week( Wednesday, and still waiting for AF to come)  When I had previous vaginal ultrasounds, everything looked normal for the exception of some small cysts seen on one side. All my hormones seems on track with my bloodwork too. Before my son, my period came normally every month without any issues. I got pregnant after only 2 months of trying. Now, 8 months of active trying and nothing. It’s frustrating and heartbreaking because I don’t understand what could be going on? And have fear that I may not have a second baby. I did have a csection and thought that could have played a part, but doctors say no. I’ve been tracking my ovulation and such, which can be all over the place. 

Anyone experienced anything similar?  Thanks for any advice! 


  • Have you seen an RE (Reproductive Endocrinologist) at a fertility clinic or just your OB? I highly suggest seeing an RE if you haven't. OBs are in the business of maintaining healthy pregnancies and deliveries, not getting people pregnant, and they often don't do the tests required (or don't do them at the proper time) to diagnose the problem correctly. Even if they do, they often don't perform treatments and monitor correctly. Fertility and obstetrics are two different medical specialties so you should really choose a fertility specialist when TTC.
