If you are not into the science of baby making, then skip this post. I am sure I wont be very entertaining……Ok, where to start. At some point in the beginning of August I noticed that my periods were a bit heavier than they should be. My little brain said to itself that I must have a fibroid, since I had one with my last son. After going to my OB/GYN, I learned that I did not have a fibroid, but a thickened uterine lining. His first words were “You need a D&C”. I was crushed, I cried, I got angry. And then I went for the D&C and hysteroscopy. I was told that I had no cancer, which was my biggest fear having had BC twice, I knew I was a higher risk for uterine cancer. I did however have a dimple on the top of my uterus and my estrogen was way too high. The dr put me on metformin, 500 mg x2 daily.
I dont really have much more to offer as to all of that. I did get my period about two weeks after the D&C, which is when af was due. If that is my period that I should be counting then today I am at CD9. The ideal time for me to start doing things to be ready for CD15, when I should O. One thing that I have learned…and this is huge for me….estrogen causes a lack of cervical mucus. I have been taking Mucinex and EPO in past cycles, but it was frightening how the quality of my cm at the time of O was awful, even with them. The metformin should help with that. I did start taking fish oil which oddly balances out your hormones by helping the liver metabolize things somehow. (Yes, I am quite scientific LOL!!) My progesterone is also low, which we knew. Progesterone supplements will help that, hopefully.
Tomorrow is CD10 and usually the day I start the opk, the mucinex and any of the tricks I have learned over the past year. I am, however, using a new trick….it is called believing!!!! Stay tuned to see how that works out!!!
