    Hi all! I am brand new to all this...but hoping someone out there might be able to shed some light on my situation.

    I am a healthy 27 year old female who has recently started trying to conceive. I was on birth control from the time I was 14 (due to irregular cycles - I would bleed for 3 weeks, then off my period for a week). In December I stopped taking birth control and have since experienced irregular periods. Cycles last anywhere from 28 to 40 days, and the periods are anywhere from 4 to 9 days.

    In my frustration, I called and asked my GYN to run some blood tests. Most everything came back normal...except my thyroid is slightly elevated and progesterone a little low...oh, and my LH is 162.5 and FSH is 32.5.

    GYN has referred me to a fertility specialist...but I am sans diagnosis until I can get in. Probably another month or so.

    Has anyone had something similar happen to them? At a loss and hate playing the waiting game.

    Thank you all for your time and sharing your experiences!!
