Hi ladies it has been a very long time since I have been on here. I was on back in March getting my IVF done. Anyway long story short, just wanted to ask when should I count CD1. I have been TTC forever and you would think I would remember this stuff but I forget sometimes. Sat. night I wore a pad just in case but AF wasnt due until today, so when I got home I had about a dime size amout of blood on my pad and when I went to the bathroom it was a good bit but was bright red it was dark red and this was around 11pm. Yesterday was my normal flow, and im wondering even though it was bright red blood and as late as it was should I count CD1 when i saw the dark red blood or when I had my normal flow. Tried looking it up and everyone says different things. Some say normal flow while others say any sign of blood other than brown you count as CD1. Remember gyno nurse saying CD1 is counted when you see red blood. Anyway please let me know which day to count. Thanks.View Thread
I have been TTC now for 5 yrs and the question about when are you having kids never gets easier. Sometimes I have gotten so sick of hearing it I have said Im not having kids or Im not trying. Anyway I wouldnt jump into IVF first thing but if your not pregnant soon you need to move on from your gyno to a reproductive doc because after a year of not getting pregnant thats when they say its time to worry and move onto help. It is very possible that your hormones are off but there is no way of telling unless you get some testing done. You could have blocked tubes, low hormones, your husbands sperm count could be low, it is really hard to tell unless you get some testing going. It could be a simple as getting on Clomid and you end up getting pregnant but I wouldnt waste my time much longer with my gyno, yes they know the female body but not as well as a reproductive doc. Also not sure why your doc isnt worried he actually should have already sent you to another doc. just to rule out different things. Good luck and hope you get some answers soon.View Thread
