Still no AF:( Come on body, please cooperate!! For various reasons, it's technically impossible that we conceived this month (I must admit, it was kind of nice to have a break from all of the mind games and false hope). If it weren't impossible, now is right about the time when I would swear I must be pregnant. Since it was a natural cycle and I decided not to chart, I really have no idea when or if I ovulated, though all indications, including a highly positive OPK, suggested it happened on CD 17 or CD 18 and yet still, no spotting, no tiny bit of blood, nada - just bad menstrual cramps for the past five days. Now that the Israeli healthcare system seems to be taking a break from mocking my control freak ways, my body is taking up the slack - awesome!
If still no AF come CD40 next week, I am going to see if I can at least take BCP whenever CD 1 does arrive so I am not relying on my wonky natural cycle anymore. Actually, I have a question about that - will my Lupron period be a real period or will the Lupron actually induce it? In other words, if I continue to just go with my natural cycle and then I start Lupron around CD 21 of this coming cycle, will my next period still be a real period at the whims of my unpredictable body and when I ovulate or will it be induced by Lupron and therefore have nothing to do with when I ovulated during that cycle? I hope that question made sense/is not unspeakably dumb:)
