19 day cycle anyone?

Postby TTCfortoolong2016 » Thu Aug 18, 2016 1:54 pm

My husband and I have been ttc for almost 3 years since our miscarriage and I had a perfectly normal cycle last month - 26 days. 19 days later I started bleeding again. I thought/was hoping it was implantation bleeding but it lasted 4 days and was just as heavy as my normal period with small clots. Anyone else have an experience like this? I did go to my dr. to get cd 2-4 bloods done and have to go back for day 21 progesterone (as long as my cycle this time decides it will be long enough to get to day 21) as we plan to go back to see the specialist next month and I wanted to have up to date results to present him but I've never had a period so early before. I did have some massive clots on day 3 of my previous 26 day cycle which isn't that normal for me since I usually only clot days 1 & 2. I just don't know what to think and am pretty worried that something else may be going seriously wrong now. We are considered unexplained infertility but what I'm really wondering is does anyone think I could have been holding on to leftover tissue for almost three years? I didn't get a d&c at time of miscarriage as my periods resumed 28 days later and have been regular since. That time getting pregnant took only two months of trying and nothing since... anyone else have retained tissue they didn't know about that hindered getting pregnant? I've had all the tests done minus lap for endo and everything has come back fine. Is there a chance they wouldn't have seen retained tissue on an ultrasound? I don't know much about the technical part of what they can tell from these tests and am looking for any advice/insight anyone can give me.

Hi again TTC
I found this post! I will say that in my 3.5 years of tracking symptoms I have had 2 cycles that were under 21 days. Based on opks those cycles I had an LH surge super early on CD 10 and started to bleed 10 days or so after that. I believe they were annovulatory and my cycles went back to normal the following cycle. I also about once a year have a 35+ day cycle where I O after my day 21. I doubt it would be retained tissue that long... have you heard of vaginal steaming/Bajos? I like to do one a cycle after AF to help steam the bad blood out. If you Google it there is lots of good info! Xx
