Trying for a baby

Herts Valley - Mon, 23 Jan 2017

Hi I'm new here my partner and I are trying for a baby, I usually have heavy periods with clotting yet at the start of the month I had a fairly light one with no clots and have had another 3 weeks later a little heavier still with no clots, I was having pains which felt like menstrual pains inbetween these periods and my breasts have been tender and sore the whole way through.

any ideas why?

Hi Shelley. I was told it's a good sign to have pains in the middle of the cycle and have tender breasts. It means that you are ovulating.

Why don'y you ask the GP or nurse on this site.
