This is something that has worried me a while. So i stopped taking the pill just over 2 yrs ago, had light 'pill periods' while on it, periods started when i came off and were regular but longer length (33 days av) for about the 1st year and light, gradually came back to 28 days and then we started ttc and now been 16 months with no success. I had been on the pill 15-16yrs so difficult to remember 'normal periods' and always used tampons till ttc and read horror stories that they could cause endo !
Periods i have now are light i.e half to one day of some red flow (tho nothing that would overwhelm a lite pad or tampon), then another dayish flow but more brown and 2-3 days brown spotting. Sorry if TMI ! GP didn't seem bothered as long as regular, fertility nurse said may or maynot indicate a prob. Day 21 prog was 69 and am sure i ovulate. Having an u/s and hycosy on thurs so scared as to what might be found. Does anyone else have periods like this ??
Mine are exactly the same!! My GP and FS both said the same thing, that it was nothing to worry about. They didn't find any problems with me either. So I am just telling myself I am one of the lucky ones who doesn't have to suffer too much every month!
Same thing here, light AF which consist of a normal to heavy flow for one day, than light or spotting the second day and that's it. My FS also didn't seem to consider this a problem since I definitely ov every month.
Thanks for your replies. It's a relief to know it's not just me! Hopefully tomorrow they won't find anything untoward. Can't say i'm looking forward to it but rather know if there is. Has anyone had one of these (hycosy) ? If so did you have your DH come in with you ?
I've always had super light and short periods (18 hours of full flow, 1-2 days of spotting), and I have every evidence of ovulating. Two ultrasounds in the past 4 years have shown my uterine lining to be well within normal ranges for to support a pregnancy. I've always been concerned about being so light and so short, but I've never found anything to suggest it's abnormal in any way.
I will be scheduling my HSG later this summer; They offer this in preference to laps and hycosy at my hospital, for first line investigations.
