9 Months On……

Its been 9 months since my last depo injection (in theory)….. ran out, although its  a year next month, from when I had my first and only injection.

So whats changed?

I’m now having regular one week periods, no more horrible bleeding all over the month. My days  app is still showing that my periods have been either a few days early or late, so still not back to normal (as such) but then again I never started and/or finished when it said I was going to be (even before I had the depo). Therefore I use it as a rough guide, to make sure that I don’t arrange to go swimming with friends around that time.

Its hard not to notice, this month (November) that I have all of a suddenly got extremely spotty. I look like a teenager again, which doesn’t help when I look about 16 and get ID for pretty much everything possible, even fuel… after I have driven my car into the petrol station. Another one was red bull (is there even a age limit to buying such a drink?) I mean its pretty rank but when I’m extremely tired and have to go out I will have one, but that’s once in a blue moon and only as I don’t drink coffee or tea.

I  have notice I’ve got my sex drive back, which as silly as it sounds when I was on the depo, I really did lose a lot of my sex drive as normal, I think it was messing my hormones up, which to me is a bit silly when the idea of it is so you don’t get pregnant, when having sex… although not having sex does also stop this…. So my partner is now making up for lost time…

I’m now finding it harder not to tell people we are trying for a baby. Then again, after my aunts reaction on Facebook yesterday, when a friend  put on my wall as a joke..how was the pregnancy going (because I’ve been feeling very sick lately) she said “OMG”, not exactly comforting. Its more a fact that she truly believed it, and was about to tell my uncle and gran… This started me thinking about how to tell people when we are pregnant. Its not saying its put me off having a baby as we are both in our 20s and we have are own house,can afford to bring a baby up. But what is the best way to tell people? Surely not on Facebook? Is it by texts, calls or emails? The reason I’m asking this, is because we have family all over the place from all over the UK, to Canada and Spain.

At the end of the day as hard as it would be to take if someone did criticize us for wanting/having a baby when we aren’t married really shouldn’t bother us as we aren’t religious and as nice as it would be to be married, it wouldn’t make any difference to the way we live, apart from our bank balance after the wedding.

I have stopped taking my anti depressants about 3 weeks ago now. I can’t say not taking them has made any difference to the way I feel. Which is a good thing, although the doctors say I’m still mildly depressed but I think this has more to do with the fact I’m tired a lot of the time and they have to put it down to something. Especially after the blood tests coming back fine. Saying this I’m having some more blood tests done on Monday. So in a way I hope something comes back from these ones, although don’t really believe it will.

I think that’s covered everything.

Thanks for reading.

      Thank you for this positive feedback. We started writing this as a way of us keeping track of what was going on and getting other peoples opinions and views, as we wanted to do this in an anonymous way, as because of the potential problems facing us, we don’t want friends and family to know as it would only add extra pressure. So for people to be finding our blog to be of use, is a very rewarding and positive feeling, as if it can help just one person, then we would be delighted.

      Please feel free to comment on future posts.
