I'm hoping this is okay to put this in this forum... but hoping someone maybe in my same boat can help?
This is my second cycle charting. My hubby and I started trying in June of this year and I got pregnant that first cycle. Then I had a miscarriage at 6 weeks in August. I have very regular periods, typically cycle is 30-31 days. These past 2 cycles after the miscarriage were 29 days long. We started trying again last month, and no go so far. Here is my chart:
With the breast cancer. I was diagnosed last October, stage 1A. BRCA- and ER/PR+. I had a unilateral mastectomy and reconstruction. No chemo or radiation. I'm not on any medication whatsoever. Haven't been since March. I only take a prenatal vitamin and fish oil, and I just started supplementing with B6 and B12. The only thing I've found odd and don't quite understand is... before the miscarriage I was using OPK's and they would be positive for one morning and one night (or vice versa) and now they're positive for like 3 days in a row (for the past two months anyway). And the past two cycles I've spotted a few days before I got my period, which apparently could be indicative of low progesterone. Wondering if my body is still trying to regulate itself, or maybe this was my issue all along and that's what caused my miscarriage in the first place.
I had my Oncologist test my hormones in January and my midwife checked them following my miscarriage in August and both of them seem to think everything looks fine. My midwife DID say my progesterone was very low then, but it was right after the miscarriage so she said it wasn't odd for it to be like that then. I have an appointment with my Oncologist next Friday. I just want all my bases covered and to ATTEMPT to be one step ahead instead of trying and trying and tryinggg for a baby, and my body be sabotaging the whole thing.
Anyone have any thoughts, helpful suggestions or insight?
