tabbyco, i hope you are not working yourself up into the worst scenarios. It is perfectly normal for it to take awhile for a women to get pregnant. In the book there is a section on anovulatory bleeding and how we woudln't know the difference from a period. Even if we didn't ovulate or had a blocked tube the endometrium still has to shed which is a regulatory function of fluctuating hormones levels. If we chart our temps for several cycles and one cycle you didn't see a change in temps. where you normally did when you ovulated, this may be anovulatory bleeding mistaken for a period (in which ovulation took place). Hope this helps.
