Hi, I'm new to the community. I'm TTC after losing my son at 28 wks gestation this past April due to an unknown cause.
Prior to becoming pregnant with my son, my periods were like clockwork: every 28 days, ovulating on day 14. We got pregnant after about 6 months of TTC. Since giving birth to him, my cycles have varied from 21d to 28d, getting a bit shorter each time (in order: 28d, 26d, 23d, 23d, 21d). I always ovulate but that day varies from 9d (this past cycle) to 15d (the first cycle after giving birth). I use an ovulation kit for confirmation but can always feel moderate pain on the side from which I'm ovulating, which isn't abnormal for me. For what it's worth, I'm 33 years old and healthy.
Should I be concerned about my cycles gradually shortening? Is a 9-day follicular phase too short a time for my uterus to prepare to receive a fertilized egg?
I'm making an appointment with my OB/GYN for as soon as possible tomorrow morning. Today is Sunday so I thought I'd see if there's anyone in this community who knows about this or who has experienced this themselves. Thank you for any information.View Thread
