Dina - March 19

Can anyone help with this? Pre-pregnancy and mc on 1/11/05 my cycle was fairly normal (about 30 days). I was wondering if it will continue to be about 30 days or if because of the mc it will be off. If so, will it stay off or will it eventually go back to normal? I am suppossed to get af tomorrow and so far nothing, and no positive pregnancy tests yet. I am so tired of this emotional and physical rollercoaster!

My ob/gyn told me that your cyle is off the first month but after that you should go back to normal. I've read this on other web sites as well. It takes 4-6 weeks to get your first AF but afterwards you should be back on track. Good luck!!

My first cycle after m/c was 40 days- normally 30. it took 6 weeks or af to arrive. I am hoping my 2nd cycle (this one) is more normal. If my cycle stays the same as last time, I won't ovulate until April!!! I have heard some people don't regulate for a while,some don;t even ovulate for a few months after m/c. I hope that's not the case for me!

I wanted to mention that I got my first period six weeks after mc and I thought I ovulated at the beginning of this month. Now I am waiting to see if I am pregnant or if I get my period (which by the way was due today).

Dina, my first cycle after m/c was also about 40 days (usually 28-30). I still don't feel normal (have posted before), though my a/f has arrived when it is due :(, my periods have been much shorter and lighter. I have also been having pregnancy "signs" early on, that have diminished, and a/f arrives. It has been an emotional and physical rollercoaster as you have described. I wish you the best.

well, enail (I think we'vespoken before) Thanks b/c it helps me to know that someone else had a 40 day cycle after m/c. And you say yours went back to normal after? I'm not sure if I should be thinking it would come regular 30 day time, or irregularly. sigh!

 

still waiting - March 20

i m/c feb 10 and I'm still waiting for my first AF.I'm looking for any signs that i'm ovulating. I too have been getting pregnancy signs, i'm hoping it's because i'm getting closer to ovulating....

 

stacey - March 20

still waiting- I think I had the pregnancy signs around the time I ovulated as well. Good luck :)

Do you ladies use fertilty/ovulation strips? You will know when you ovulate. They are inexpensive when you get them from http://www.accuratepregnancytests.com. My m/c started on Feb. 22nd and I ovulated two weeks later. I will find out this week if i am pregnant. I was not trying to get pregnant and had unprotected s_x the day before ovulation symptoms began. After reading posts here I thought I would not ovulate at all or it would be late. Before m/c my cycle oddly changed to 24-25 days. I am late as far as that is concerned but I a__sumed I would be since a/f comes late after m/c. I hope I go back to my 28 cycle. Get those strips! They take all the guessing out of it!

Gina's right. Get the strips - they're worth it. After my first miscarriage and d & c, I had 35 day cycles for a year (normal had been 30). After that first year, they finally settled back down to 30 or 31 days.

I actually did buy ovulations tests- not strips, and am using them as well as my cm and cervix for signs. I am trying not to miss anything this month ;)

Is there a difference between "strips" and "tests" and "sticks"? I used the Clear Blue easy fertility monitor now, but I used to use what I rather un-technically called "pee sticks" (the kind that come 5 in a box)!

 

stacey - March 21

that's what I use now- the pee sticks (look like a pregnancy test). What's the clear blue? i think I read they are the best. Don't forget that there is now the spit tests too.

 

Julie C. - March 21

I couldn't ever get the hang of the spit test - I have one, but found too much possibility for interpretative difference. The Clear Blue Fertility Monitor is a little computer. You use 10 sticks (on average) per month. The sticks are very much like the "pee sticks" except you can't read them yourself (they always look positive). You pee, then slip the stick into the monitor. It gives you a reading of low, high, or peak. The two peak days, obviously, are your best chance days. The monitor itself is kinda expensive (about $200) but the sticks costs about the same per month as the other kind. My doctor (who is a fertility specialist) seems pretty confident in their accuracy. It won't guarantee a pregnancy - that of course is up to nature - but being 98% sure of when you ovulate definitely makes you feel a little more in control of this process. Good luck to you this month.
