First Cycle Post MC -- Help Me Figure out O!!

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

So I got prego first cycle on 50 mg clomid on our 7th cycle of trying (I was dx'd with "thin PCOS" after 6 cycles of trying but I do O on my own). I had a MC at around 6 weeks and then subsequently bled for about ten to 12 days. It stopped for about 5 days so DH and I BD'd twice after I was sure it was over. Well yesterday I started spotting again and didn't think much of it -- probably just leftover blood right? It's been really dark brown or rust red -- definitely not "fresh" looking (sorry gross, I know).

 

Today, to my surprise, I had a .4 degree temp rise (97.8 to 98.2) and nothing that would account for it other than O -- no alcohol, woke up and went to bed same time and room was actually colder last night than it's been. Plus historically whenever my temp goes above 98 it means I O'd.

But could this just be hormones fluctuating or whatever post miscarriage?? Are post miscarriage temps reliable? Can O happen so soon? This would have been CD 17 counting CD 1 as the first day of bleeding with MC. And what's with the spotting?? I have never spotted on O day before so why now? does that mean i did not in fact O and MC is still trying to finish up? The other issue is I only took my temp three time before I observed the spike -- not exactly a great sample size. We were planning on starting ttc right away again before next period -- our doc didn't prohibit it -- but now I'm afraid we might have missed our window since if I did O we only BD'd once during my fertile period (2 days before O).

Any help or advice would be much appreciated and best of luck to you all! Thanks so much ladies xx

It seems possible to me that you were actually ovulating around the time you had the spotting.  The timing from the beginning of your cycle seems right.  There is another thread in this forum about brown spotting around time of O.  I don't know what causes it, but it looks like it happened to someone else.  I had an earlier loss than you and my next O was around the time it usually was.  2 days before O might be perfect timing.  Good luck!

I had a positive OPK on CD 15 after my miscarriage and D&C, accompanied by a lot of EWCM. I got my period exactly two weeks later. Now I should be O'ing again but I'm not getting a positive OPK despite EWCM. Just BD'ing every two days and hoping for the best.
