Need help- - two questions
Mon, 07-12-2004 - 10:09am
Question one: My Daughter in law is trying to conceive. She has had a lot of problems in the past. Now she is bleeding like every two weeks. The Dr. has told her that her tubes are infected and the only way might have to be invitro, which they can't afford. Is there any way to clean out the tubes? Anyone else have a similar problem and able to solve it?

Question two: I know it's funny but I'm also TTC. (Actually just starting) I got pregnant accidentally but lost the baby at 17 weeks after having an amino. We didn't realize how much we wanted a baby until we were pg. No one will replace baby Lacie, but we do want another baby even though I am 42 and DH is 51. It has been three weeks since then and I don't see my dr. for another three weeks. I just stopped bleeding. Will my cycles start now or will it take a while? I guess what I'm asking is when will AF start again. I bought some ovualation tests and just started taking my basal temp. But I don't know really what to do next.

Any help with this would be appreciated.

Deidra: First, I am very sorry for your loss.

I really don't have an answer for your first question, maybe someone else can provide input on that.

On your 2nd question, for me, my new cycle started 28 days after my miscarriage ended...kind of like a regular cycle. I think there are times when your body needs recuperation time and you may skip a cycle...I think for everyone it is different.

If you are seeing your doctor in 3 weeks and still haven't seen AF, I think there are blood tests they can do to see where you may be in your cycle...good luck. Hoping your grandchild has an aunt or uncle right around the same age!! Tons of baby dust to both of you!!
