No period, not pregnant I think?

I was on yaz for several years and went off of it in March of 2010 to TTC, for three months I had a normal menstrual cycle every 30 days as was normal even when I was on BC and before I started it. Then in July and August I had no period yet cramping, when to the OBGYN she said I wasn't pregnant and gave me Progesterone to start it. I got a small light period of 4 days in September and then didn't get a period in October or November so she had me take it again in December, same thing light period 4 days. January I had a very small period that started around the 28th- 1st of February, no period February or March as of yet. I took a preg test early March just to be sure, it was negative and now for the last 5 days I have been having slight cramping that I notice when I sit or lay down but rarely notice when I stand. I want to get pregnant but my understanding was I had to have a normal cycle for me to ovulate.
Any thoughts on what it is, should I just get back on BC to regulate my period?

Hi Anon,

Did you have an irregular period before getting on BC? It sounds like it is irregular now but getting back on birth control to regulate it will only work while you are on the birth control pills and that will prevent you from getting pregnant.

It is not impossible to get pregnant with an irregular cycle, it is just harder because ovulation becomes unpredictable. Have you talked to your doctor regarding this?

I was always regular with a 30 day cycle before and while on BC, I spoke with my dr. and she recommended taking some drug to get pregnant, but I would prefer not to take drugs and get my body back on cycle naturally..
