Dr Owen : Hello
Dr Owen : Well as long as you have a period that is regular and occurring every 24 to 35 days, and the bleeding last for 3 to 8 days then that is considered a normal cycle
Dr Owen : and trying for only TWO months is a very short time, most couples take on average 4 to 6 months to conceive.
My cylcles are always between 28-32 days but only last for 2 days really
Dr Owen : Okay, then this could be due to a thyroid problem, or a possible elevated prolactin level, or because you have anxiety too can cause this
Dr Owen : so I would get that checked.
Dr Owen : imam not concerned about the thickness of the inside of your uterus.
I have had those bloos tests and all fine. Im not anxious all of the time, just about this every month! Please can you explain how blood loss isnt linked to lining thickness
Dr Owen : Blood tests have nothing to do with thickness, so you can not correlate them
no, I mean blood loss, ive been told that the amount of blood lost and duration of bleeding isnt linked to the thickness of lining, which i find confusing
Dr Owen : if everything is tested as normal, then honestly relax because most couple can take up to 4 to 6 months on average to get pregnant
Dr Owen : it is not linked to the thickness of the lining
Dr Owen : there is no correlation
I will accept your answer and give a good rating in a moment but please can you explain this one thing in laymans terms, how that doesn't correlate? From what I learned in school and have read the lining builds up during the luteal phase and is then shed. So surely if not much is shed then not much built up?
Dr Owen : Because blood tests have nothing to do with thickness of the lining.
Dr Owen : The thickness has to do where you are in your cycle
Im not mentioning blood tests
Dr Owen : but only with estrogen and progesterone cyclong
My light periods, mean that surely not much lining has built up as not much is being shed?
Dr Owen : here is what I suggest, you should see a reproductive ob gyn if you are not pregnant in 6 months, as then you can get all the appropriate tests which are very expensive such as biopsies
Dr Owen : but honestly try to relax, that is going to help you more than anything else
Im sorry, Im not sure you understand what I am asking, maybe I havent explained clearly enough, I will rate you positively as you have helped but i will post my question out to other experts too. Thank you for your time
