    I know that it's not IMPOSSIBLE, nothing is "impossible"... but male sterilization is the most reliable form of birth control that is available if that makes you feel any better.

    The only people I have ever known that had a pregnancy after the surgery didn't pay attention to the fine print and were having unprotected sex before he got the "all clear" test... not so smart.

    My husband and I have been safely using his cut pipes for YEARS with no incidents.

    If it makes you feel better grab that test... but more than likely you are just experiencing a slight hormonal shift and your period will show up soon. I know that can be scary for someone who has always been very regular. I guess I'm lucky in that I've never been regular at all, so any lateness or missed periods never fazed me for even a minute once my husband got his "all clear".

      He went back for all required testing. 5/11 and 8/11 I think. I know it was twice afterwards.

      • Always a good idea ot just take a test and see. Our doctor appointments for immigration were dragged out because the little pee strip test for whatever was coming up green instead of yellow. . . which could have been due to pregnancy. So, I couldn't get my chest x-ray. Being religious about not-conceiving, we were freaking out. I was also about 5 days late (but sometimes that happens), so it was a double freak.

        Took the test the next AM, no preggers. Went to the doctor with test and pee came out with yellow strip instead of green, got the x-ray all clear. Did that, and the next morning, got my period. Who knows waht that was?

        Anyway, sometimes a cycle will go overlong due to stress or any number of things, but it never hurts to just have a test and see.

        I hope you get the outcomes that you want!

          It's possible that it's not him, it's you. Your cycle could be adjusting to eating Primal (not sure how long you've been at this). Also, how old are you? It could be that you are peri-menopausal. The bell curve on when menopause happens goes from 35 to 55 with most getting it in the mid 40s but I have a friend who had hers all done and dusted by 35.

            I just turned 30 2 weeks ago, so pretty sure it's not menopause issues. I've been primal for about a year now, so it's not an adjustment to that. I bought a test on the way home tonight and will test in the morning. Been feeling sick all night and had no stamina at soccer tonight. The only thing is I feel like I won't know until I either end up with a positive test or my period as I tested negative with my daughter 2 days before I tested positive. Guess time will tell and we'll see what God has in store for our family!

                AF showed up just before lunch. Apparently my hormones are really screwed up.

                • am bumping this from waaaay back.

                  sooooooooooooooooooo, i thought i might have a yeast infection. i'm not prone to them, but have been sitting, working, more than i normally do.

                  so, i remember reading on here, plus with some google-fu, that putting a garlic clove in my vagina overnight would cure it. i did that on tuesday night and removed it when i woke up wednesday. web says "some" burning is normal. ack. i am feeling like absolute firecrotch still. sex this morning was like my insides were an inferno being scraped by a pumice-coated penis.

                  long-term monogamy here, no chance of std's.

                  is this normal? is there something i can put down there to safely quench the fire? jeebus, it feels awful.
                  As I ate the oysters with their strong taste of the sea and their faint metallic taste that the cold white wine washed away, leaving only the sea taste and the succulent texture, and as I drank their cold liquid from each shell and washed it down with the crisp taste of the wine, I lost the empty feeling and began to be happy and to make plans.

                  • Never put anything in your vagina that would also burn if put in your eyes....
                    LMAO. if the cure had said stick a habanero up there i might have thought otherwise, but i know garlic has magic powers. duh. i like to think i am so smart. ok, so an epsom salts bath sounds good, but anything else? aloe? vitamin e?

                    god i sound like a dumbass, lol. i just don't want to make this worse and i know moisture feeds yeast!

                      • Hello Fellow She-Groks!

                        Hi everyone! I've been following this thread for a bit and finally decided to jump into the fray for some support and encouragement. I'm 29 years old - about to turn 30 May the 8th - and so about half a year ago I made a commitment to my health and to improve it. I've been eating Primal since November (that's 5 full months now) back when my starting weight was 190 lbs. Since November I have dropped a total of 48 pounds and I feel SO much better on the inside, too.

                        Front.jpg

                        I have a few health problems, a seizure disorder, left arm tremor, and idiopathic hypersomnia (Translated Literally: Unknown Too Much Sleep). Since eating Primal I've noticed that I sleep better, my arm tremors have decreased (personally, I think they're related to hormones as symptoms increase around menstruation and ovulation, but I'm no doctor), no seizure activity for the past 9 months to the day, and I have way more energy than I used to.

                        Also turns out that I'm legit allergic to gluten so I'm sure that carries a bevy of its own symptoms. Thankfully eating Primal has literally saved my life, I tell everyone about it, and sometimes I get silently angry at people in the supermarket when I look and see that their basket is full of bread, cereals, rice, junk food, beer, etc... but hey, that's just me. I've started to see all of the ridiculous crap they put in everything that goes into your body: just last night I was going to take some vitamin C to ward off the remnants of a cold, and the ingredients listed "sodium laurel sulfate." O.o That stuff is in shampoos as a foaming agent and a degreaser... why would I want it INSIDE my body? Random tangent aside, I am a She-Grok and I look forward to chatting with everyone here!

                            Hello Shade and Welcome.
                            I am another epileptic. Have you seen my thread about ketosis and reducing my meds?

                            http://www.marksdailyapple.com/forum/thread64225.html

                            Lots of people have chimed in with their stories. This touches a lot of people's lives. Your experiences would be an interesting addition to the thread if you feel l like it.

                            Comment


                            • Valmason01: Thank you! I'm happy to share if it means helping others out! The Vitamin C was in a tablet form, a generic 1,000 mg from Kroger... all I can think is "eugenics," lol. Thank you again!

                              PaleoBird: I LOVE your posts, I did not know about your epilepsy though, and I am definitely going to check that link out! I am hoping that Primal will solve most of my problems (onset was when I was 23) or at least reduce medication. Thank you so much! I am more than happy to share anything here and I have to say I'm super happy that there's a "ladies thread" to get away from the "dude bros," lol.

                              Everyone: Don't cringe... I'm still trying to kick my cigarette habit (10 years) because I believe that's what's at the root of everything affecting me... I'm putting poison in my body and I know it, and I want to quit so badly... it's just hard. Because I know Grok didn't smoke today's cigarettes. And if I'm concerned with chemicals like sodium laurel sulfate, I should be concerned with the chemicals every single cigarette doses out. I'm trying. The absolute hard limit is the day I turn 30 - May 8th - and there will be absolutely no cigarettes smoked on that day or thereafter... forever.

                              What pushed me to finally join this forum and this thread is that I've hit a plateau in my weight loss (normal, I know) and my body just doesn't want to budge. I've read about the LReset and upping carbs, but I'm happy eating what I am now... I'm addicted to my meat and veggies... I just think I need to be less sedentary as I've done little to no exercise these past few months, aside of house work and some heavy yard work. Anyway, I'm happy to be here!

                                Did you mention your height? Is it possible you're actually at a good weight? You've done such a great job, perhaps now you want to throw out the scale (or stop focusing on it) and focus on getting stronger. I've been disappointed with the scale for a while, but when I deadlifted 170lbs today, I felt pretty good. Check out PBF or if you have access to a gym/weight bench, I highly recommend Starting Strength.

                                Good luck!
