So after I posted my "5mos PP and still no AF" post, I went ahead and called my OB. The next available appt was last thursday, which was one day shy of the boys being 6 mos old. I went to the appt and the check in nurse said took my vitals and said "so why are you here today?" I told her cuz AF was missing 6mos PP. She said, "ok, let me ask some history questions and then we'll have ya pee in a cup for a pg test and then we'll get ya into the exam room to wait for the dr." First question...form of birth control? "Tubal" I say, and she decides that the urine pg test won't be necessary lol. So I get to the exam room and the dr comes in and we go over why I'm there. She immediately asks if I could be pg. I tell her I've had a tubal so I'm pretty sure I'm not. She smirks and asks if I peed in a cup for an office pg test. "Nope, nurse said not to." Hmmm she says. In an amused tone, I tell her it's not funny and I'm NOT pg. So she starts my exam with a visual exam of my cervix. She pops her head up from between my legs and says "are you SURE you aren't pg?!" WHAT?! YES!!! WHY??!! Because my cervix "looks like a pg cervix". HUH? I've never heard of that before, but aparently pg cervixes look blue. She jokes again about me being pg...I tell her I'm not and she gives me the silly eye, and then I throw up my hands and say "well you'll tell me in about three mins when you do the u/s if you see any sacs" LOL. (At this point I'm still pretty darned sure I'm not pg, but man does she have me rattled.) So anticlimax here...she does the u/s and I'm not pg! I do have a seriously thick lining and "polycystic looking ovaries". She prescribed me a 5 day provera challenge and warned me that AF would be super terrible once she got here. Swell! And she gave me a lab slip for a TON of different blood tests to try to see what might be going on. "Oh and one more thing" she said, "I'll need a urine sample for that pg test." LOL, ok fine...gotta cross your t's and dot your i's I suppose. So I did the test, it was negative *SHOCKER* and headed home. I filled my prescription and intended to start it today so that I wouldn't be in the middle of a terrible AF when I went trick or treating with my kiddos, but wouldn't ya know?!...AF showed up Sunday PISSED AS EVER. It's been terrible. I've been soaking an overnight pad every hour. Bleck! I guess this is what I get in exchange for a 6 mo break. So aparently all I needed to do was threaten her with a dr visit to get her to show up again lol. Sorry I don't have any great answers as to WHY. The possibilities were a weird syndrome you can develop if you hemmhorage at delivery, some sort of hormone imbalance, a cervical blockage, or surprise pathological issue. But now AF has shown up so??? If my OB calls with anything noteworthy in my b/w I'll update but for right now it aparently seems that it just took this long to get my hormones back in sync from having two babies.
