Ladies, I am so frustrated, I think my body is playing a cruel joke on me. After 3 very poor IVF cycles (in 3 cycles we only got one embryo) my husband and I decided to move on to a donor cycle. Last month was my mock donor cycle and the first day of my last period was June 22nd. We started the estrace on June 24th and then started the provera with the estrace on June 8th. I was told that I was given the provera to help me start my period after taking the estrogen. The problem is I stopped taking the estrace and provera on July 18th and I still have not gotten my period, which by my calculations should have started on July 20th. My period has been thrown off a few days here and there due to my IVF cycles but I think the latest I've ever been is 3 days. I had a very small amount of cramping a few days after I missed my period and a tiny bit of pink one day when I went to the restroom and that was it! I normally have a lot of pain with my period and I cannot remember the last time I did not get a migraine before my period, which I didn't last month.
We are doing a donor cycle due to my AMH of 0.2, my severe endometriosis and my poor response to IVF amongst other things. Plus my husband has very severe male infertility so I cannot imagine that we got pregnant on our own. I've taken multiple HPT's and they've all come back negative but still no period! I just don't understand this. I've never missed a period before and I've been told that I am going to go into premature menopause in the next year (I'm 32) but with all the build of my lining due to the estrace wouldn't I have a period anyway?
After finally taking the emotional step to move on to a donor cycle this is just cruel to give me this hope and yet still have all negative tests. Has anyone else had this happen to them with the mock cycle?
though it seems like it is taking you a lonnnng time. I think "up to 10 days" is what I have usually seen though it did take me 11-12 days once. Hang in there.
