Menstrual Cycle Day 22


What is happening internally?

The corpus luteum continues to release high amounts of progesterone to maintain the uterine lining. If conception occurred the blastocyst, now referred to as a zygote, will increase in size 40 times within this first month. The amounts of hCG are climbing.

Outward symptoms:

Basal body temperatures remain high above the coverline. If conception occurred - you may see a third thermal shift known as triphasic. This is due to the extra progesterone being released to maintain the tuerine lining. Cervix is low, firm and closed. Cervical fluid is dry or it may become creamy or sticky. You may experience bloating or water retention.

I'm on day 22 and mild cramps sometimes. Unusual feeling in lower stomach. Mild back ache. Very sleepy and tired mostly. Am I pregnant? And I've done follicular study. I got eggs ruptured on both the sides of my ovaries. I'm taking progesterone tablets frm the day my egg ruptured. So please tell me, do these symptoms indicate pregnancy or due to progesterone tablets? Please someone help me.

Started taking michrogynom on day 22 of my cycle, after having unprotected sex on day 22-25 of the cycle. What are the chances of getting pregnant?

Cd22 and feeling bloated and gassy. Weird feeling in my lower and I like movements. Might be paranoid since I took femara. The wait is killing me. Had 21 day progesterone tests done. Tsh and prolactin. All normal. Anyone else with these symptoms? No spotting just cramping. Counting down til day 28.

Each woman has a 20% chance of getting pregnant each month.

CD22, TTC for 1 year. I usually have full blown PMS symptoms by now including horribly hard and sore boobs, bloating, cramping etc. Today, I only have really sore nipples, lower back and abdominal pain and exhaustion. Is this time different? We are so ready to be parents it kills me every month when we have not succeeded! Thoughts from fellow dusters?
