Dee..question?

Hi Dee....



So I don't know if you remember but dr. put me on estrogen for 21 days to try and jump start my cycle. I finished that and had a little little bleeding that started on Sept.1 which is now my CD1. The bleeding is not really af but we're acting like it is when it comes to cycle days. Now I'm gonna have a pelvic ultrasound. My questions are...Is that what you had? Did you have to drink lots of water before to have a nice full bladder? It will be cd13

Angie,

Yes, I had a transvaginal ultrasound. They could tell how many follicles I had maturing and how big they were...they also told me how thick my lining was. I don't know about "old" eggs. I know I had an ultrasound about a year ago, right before I got ppaf. They said nothing about follicles, b/c I didn't have any maturing.....but my lining was 4, which they said was consistent with nothing going on at all. I think that's like right after af? Only I hadn't gotten af yet.....

Your follicles are in the ovaries and the egg is released into the fallopian tube at ovulation. So, I don't know what they mean about "old eggs". All your follies are in the ovaries....and I believe, it's there where they see the mature ones. Don't know why there would be old eggs anywhere....if you ovulate you would get af and they would be shed with the lining..... sort of confused on that point.

But, I think if you had a sort of af....your body might be working on something....if any follicles are maturing, they should be able to tell you that.

Hope this helps a bit. Good luck.

Anyone else with better info. feel free to chime in!

Angie, I hope you don't mind, but I am going to post stalk you... We sound very similar! My doc had me do 21 days of estrogen, too, and also called it an attempt to
jumpstart my cycles, but it didn't work... We didn't talk about step two yet - sigh, I guess I should call her. I hope you get some answers and are willing to share!

Dee---Thanks! I hope something is going on in there. I have a distinct feeling that my lining is gonna stink. I'm taking EPO and drinking raspbery leaf tea so I'm hoping that helps some.
