Yup. My period came.
I had a complete me,town yesterday about everything, which ended in a hell of a lot of tears and a promise to Amy that I will talk to the Dr about antidepressants on Monday when I go in, I’ve been on anti-d’s before and they just level me out a little, which I really feel like I need at the moment as I feel like I am all over the place.
I’m hopeful that on Monday the Dr will prescribe clomid or refer me to a fertility specialist. Truth be told, I’m taking Amy with me and we won’t be leaving the office until we have a treatment pathway. I’m done now. This is cycle twenty two over all and cycle six since we lost Squishy. I was promised clomid three months ago and it’s about time we got this show on the road.
Also, I’m actually only nine days post ovulation. This concerns me. My period used to show up late on ten days post ovulation or early on eleven days post ovulation.then it started showing up mid way through ten days post ovulation. Now it has shown up on the evening of nine days post ovulation for the last two months. This is not good. This is not good at all. The drs here claim that luteal phase defect is not a thing, but I’m going to have a serious chat with them. How is an egg meant to be fertilised, grow, implant and make enough HCG to stop me starting my period when it only has eight full days to do so? Something else to discuss with the doctor.
If there’s one positive I can take from this cycle, it’s that my ovulation was brought forward quite a bit by spearmint tea, which is great. Ovulating sooner was one of the things I wanted to do, so it’s great that I have managed it through a natural remedy.
Now we just need to put the rest of the puzzle pieces in place.
