Pregnancy: Trying to Conceive: Is Something Wrong? (cont.)
Do hot flashes affect BBT? I'm experiencing some on Clomid.
Hot flashes are a side effect of Clomid. That's because Clomid is an "anti-estrogen," and with less estrogen you can experience hot flashes. While on Clomid your temperatures can be erratic, so someone evaluating your chart should know that you are taking Clomid. It's difficult to interpret the chart on your own and you should have an expert look at it so it makes more sense.
Dr. Amos, I miscarried on 6/13/04, and lasted about nine weeks. I still haven't had an AF since. This past week I have had very small amount of blood when I wipe after a bowel movement, but it is definitely coming from the vaginal area. Could my cervix possibly be blocked and not letting AF out?
It's possible, but unlikely, that your cervix is responsible for not getting AF. It's more likely that you haven't ovulated yet. I am unsure what you mean by "lasted nine weeks," but if you haven't ovulated two to three months after a miscarriage then you should discuss this with your doctor.
I spotted for nine weeks and took that long for HCGs to reach zero.
So it finished, what, three weeks ago?
Five weeks ago.
In that case you need to wait for a couple more months for ovulation to return.
A couple more months? Is there any cause to worry?
Seems like you just finished the miscarriage five weeks ago. It can take several months for your body to readjust.
If a male factor is diagnosed, what are some of the possible solutions? I know this is a broad question, but DH equates "testing" with "problem" with "surgery" and is VERY apprehensive.
Surgery is rarely, if ever, the first step in improving male fertility. Sometimes it's just lifestyle or improving diet. A urologist will usually do the examination, take a history, and find out what can be done about it.
