Menstrual Cycle Day 18


What is happening internally?

The corpus luteum continues to release high amounts of progesterone, to maintain the uterine lining. The ovum (egg), if fertilized, changes from the ball of cells known as a morula, into a blastocyst - a cluster of cells with a fluid-filled cavity. The blastocyst floats toward the opening of the uterus.

Outward symptoms:

Basal body temperatures remain high, above the coverline. Cervix is low, firm and closed. Cervical fluid is dry. You may be experiencing a little bloating or water retention.

My husband and I have been trying for our second child for a year now and no luck. I took clomid, and this is my 4th cycle. We're hoping we did it this month.

It could be that the uterus is not empying out completely and needs assistance maybe herbs can help this issue fix itself and destress.

I have been ttc my second child for a year now with no luck. I have endometreosis and am hoping it worked out this month. My last cycle was October 29th, but I have been cramping off and on for the last 3 days. You don't have ovulation cramping for days so what could this be?
