Hi guys after some advice if anyone can help please.
Had my second scan of follicle tracking today, as usual nurses seem cagey about speculating on any findings so as usual am a little perplexed.
Firstly got my day 3 blood results she simply said everything came back normal and only thing she mentioned was FSH was 6.5 and that was acceptable - i am 32, is that ok? As it is something i have been worried about
Secondly the cyst i had is still there on my left ovary as it was on day 3, i am now on day 9. Is it normal. I think she said it is unlikely that i would develop any follicles in that ovary until the cyst goes? Is that true? Does that mean i am operating on half throttle so to speak?
She mentioned that i have a dominant follicle of 15mm on my righ ovary? Is this normal for day 9? I have no idea what it should be???
Lastly she mentioned that i have a thin womb lining and asked me to come back for another scan in 2 days as she thinks its too thin? Does anyone know what causes this and if there is anything i can do to improve it? Also what treatments there are for it and if this could be the cause of my infertility as i have mentioned to the specialist and nurses etc my periods are very light only for about 1 day heavy 1 day medium and 3rd-5th days spotting.
Any advice and help from anyone who has had the same in much appreciated as I dont think i can wait until speaking to my specialist at end of jan about al results together and the nurses or "scanners" seem reluctant or in too much of a hurry to discuss my questions??? Anyone else felt like that too????
I would try reposting this in LTTC as those girls might have more input into this. All I can add is that I've heard of people using baby aspirin to encourage a better lining. It could be a potential infertility problem if the lining is not thick enough to support implantation. However, it's only potentially a problem right now - it doesn't look like the nurse has confirmed. Do you know how long your luteal phase is?
Whats LP and basing ? lol I am not good at these terms pretty new on here.
I presume you mean taking basal temp ? Well, i did do that for a few months and from temps looked like i was not ovulating but i have had 2 scans now that suggest i am!!! Specialist at fertility clinic said its also a waste of time, was not interested in seeing any charts, kinda laughed it off as if he didn't understand why people do it???? Think he thought it just stresses people out more. To be honest my first couple of months of using OPKs it looked like i did ovulate, then i thought i would temp too and the first month looked like temp rose but that month i got very early period (unusual for me) which set of my whole trips to the docs and now specialist, so perhaps there is something in what he says about stressing out over temperatures after all I dunno???
Dunno, i do temp, get a clear temp shift so I think temping can be very beneficial. I'm taking a break this cycle because I'll be going out of the country next week and logistically, it would be very difficult.
If you do not know the day of ovulation, you cannot really calculate your LP. Usually women who have a bad quality uterus lining also have a luteal phase defect, meaning they will get their period less than 10 days after ovulation. This usually symbolizes a problem because it could be too short to sustain a pregnancy, so it's usually a progesterone problem, or the uterine lining is of bad quality and sheds too soon.
Oh IC that would actually make a bit of sense with my charting results as when i got the random 17 day cycle (normally 26-28) i got a clear temp rise around day 13-14 . i then had another freak cycle of 21 days and also had a clear rise around day 13. So perhaps you are right??? i hope it is somethign they can sort with just tablets and i dont have to go through all the full ivf stuff
Usually an LPD can be fixed through other means first, so don't immediately worry, please!!! It depends on how you respond to the drugs they suggest first though whether they will need to take it to another level and what level that is. Good luck!!! While I can't say with certainty that this is your problem, it is potentially one and if it is, I'm glad at least we know what the problem is so we can take the necessary steps to correct it, right? Chin up chickie, you'll have your day (or 9 months rather )!!!
I've been trying for 7 months now. Doctor won't see me until my year is up so I'm waiting (not so) patiently. I don't know if we have problems. It looks like I O though and now have a sufficiently long LP thanks to Vitamin B-Complex (had an 11day LP before with spotting). Vit B-Complex probably won't help a uterine lining problem though.
