How long does it take for nur isterate wear off because i would really like to become pregnant soon. I have been using the injection since May 2011 to Nov 2011. should i take pills instead so that my cycle can return faster or what? i desperately need advise on this regard because i want to have a baby. ## Have you consulted your doctor?

My name is Blessing. I am almost 48yrs old. I have only one child. I desire to have another one at least a boy God willingly to make my husband happy. I have not been seeing my period and whenever it comes, it will be so scanty. I've been taking folic acid as directed by my doctor. I've also been told to undergo a hormone profile but I know that this would require that I see my menses in order to do that . Please what drug do I take to see this period in order to have my hormone profile done and secondly too what can enhance my fertility? Thanks. ## At your age, it is very unlikely that you will start experiencing regular periods, again, and become pregnant, according to the NIH.

Is it due to the ilvirtrim or what, as i also suffer from lower abdominal pains? i did a consultation and did some scans and they told me there is nothing wrong. How dangerous is low blood pressure as i am anemic when HIV+?
