Default Whole lot of new questions :) TMI alert

Ok, my cycle seems to have changed drastically since the MC. Before they were short and i'd get that brown stuff for 1-2 days then a light flow. Twice now, my cycle has been longer (32-35 d), heavier, and starts like, immediately, and lots of cramps too. I hope this is a healthier cycle than before, or is this still my body getting over the trauma (and will I go back to the wimpy AF's?) Have you guys had a change like this in your cycles after a pg or miscarriage? Wondering if its permanent....

Next question. Now that I have a longer cycle, im really concerned about the IUI timing. We have to order a donor specimen and have it within a 9 day time period. I used to go in for the IUI on day 12-13 or 14 and that was with a 27-28-29 day cycle. I know the clomid and trigger shot helped regulate my cycle, so i'm wondering if going on clomid again will shorten my cycle (I guess questions for the dr).

What I really want to do is go off clomid altogether and just havea hcg trigger shot, but im not really sure when to time that even, since I don't really know when i'll surge with this length cycle. Guess all I can do is watch my temps? They seem to be pretty accurate as far as ovulation?

Ok thanks for reading all that. I feel like this round is a whole new game. We're faced with a lot of STUFF.

Sorry, I have no clue!! Does your doc take phone consultations. I bet she/he has the answers you need.

1. My periods have definitely been heavier and more intense since our first D&C last November.
 
I don't know if this is the case with everyone, but I concur with your experience.

2. The Clomid will help increase the quality of eggs and potential help "regulate" your cycle. I just saw your post about declining the Clomid this go-round, so I'll move on.
 


3. If you're charting your temps, there's no way to tell BEFORE ovulation occurs, only AFTER. So without a few months under your belt, it's no that predictable. I'd talk to your doc about maybe doing ultrasounds to tell when those follicles are looking ripe and go for the trigger shot then.

Is your dr monitoring you with u/s's while on the clomid? I know some dr's dont, although Im not sure why that is. I always had follicle studies done while on any fertility med. Since you're not doing clomid but are doing timed IUI how does your dr know when you should go in? I would request the u/s's so that you can maximize your chances, especially with slightly differnt cycle lengths now. GL!

Thanks! I have had u/s monitoring before, but have had pretty regular OPKs that coincide with my temp charting. I think we'll be ok and since u/s monitoring isn't covered by insurance, unfortunately we have to do without! I wish I could, but we're already paying about 600 per month out of pocket!!
