  • Hi ladies,

    I just had a question about my lenght of my af. Before my DD, it usually lasted 5 days, and now it's about 3. When I went for my vaginal u/s on CD3, I think I heard the doctor say something about 6mm. Does that make sense? Is that a normal number, and should I be concerned about my short af?

    Thanks!
    Cathy

    Not sure. Did you mention it to your doc? I'm sure he'd let you know, but I'd just ask if I was concerned. My AF changed after our son was born (came about 5 days earlier) and I was told that was normal. Not sure what the 6mm is related to though.

  • I think 6 mm is slightly thick for cd 3. I think the thickness correlates to your shorter AF. Cycles can vary month to month. I don't think the short AF will cause a problem. If your luteal cycle started getting shorter then that would signal a problem.

    Good Luck Cathy!

  • Af usually comes 13-14 dpo. I am on baby aspirin, maybe that affects it. I go again on cd 11 for another vag u/s, so I'll bring up my concerns then.
    Thanks for the replies. Every little bit helps!

  • No idea! You better ask your doc. My cycle change a bit after my son was born, but them went right back to normal.
