I was due for my period today and unfortunately got it..=0( I had spotting yesterday and the day before and thought it might have been implantation bleeding...apparently not. I had taken HCG shots this time around...one right before ovulation adn another 7 days after. DH and I had planned to do IUI for a reason that was unrelated to any fertility issues. I, luckily, got preg with my dd the first time around. I stopped yaz a month ago and got my period naturally 30 days later. This cycle was 28 days. I have always had regular periods.
I had spotting with my dd and when I went to this dr he said it could be due to a short luteal phase....even though I went on to have a successful preg. I had low prog in the beg and the dr had told me that this didn't sound like a viable preg.....it rose natrually by itself the next day and then i started the supplement just in case.
Well...being that dh and I decided to go all natural (which I believe is right for us in my heart for our reasons) I grew concerned that perhaps i might have this luteal deficit which can cause infertility. I asked him over the phone and he asked me if i have always had reg periods. I have. He asked if they were very short. They have never been. Is it normal to have spotting a day or two before your period? How do I know if I am going to be infertile? Maybe having a baby and going on yaz has screwed me up. (not that i would change having my dd FOR ANYTHING)
I know it has only been one cycle....I am NOT AT ALL trying to say that I have had it hard....I am really just trying to understand this whole process. Furthermore, he had done a blood test on day 12 12 of my cycle and i had just had an LH surge.
as for my STUPID brain.......
I have "convinced" myself and perhaps this is all magical thinking....that I HAVE fertility problems...mayeb I didn't in the past...but I DO NOW...and if and when i get preg..i will mc. I know this is terrible and I should change the way I am thinking..but if it were that easy I would. This is not fun...................these thoughts scare me, upset me, and cause me GREAT distress. I was thinking of trying to take yoga.....lol
