Convinced....

That im not ovulating.... this is so scary and i never even considered it. But after speaking to an OB friend (my husby is an ortho surgery resident, so i have an amazing amount of drs around me) i explained to her that: my periods are very dark, very short and irregular, by this i mean... sometimes 32, 33, 35, 40 day cycles, but i never get bright red bleeding.


So she basically explained to me that when AF comes 2 things are happening, ovary/uterine things, the bright red blood carries the ovary out of your system if not fertilized and the uterine lining is expulsed as well, cause no need for the rich build up... basically, im only flushing that unneeded lining, hence the old dark blood thats been building, no red blood cause no egg was released.


So, as i sit here im just numb, its like.... of course, this makes so much sense, ive been racking my brain trying to remember the last time had bright red bleeding assoc. w my period and im at a loss


i dont know what my next step will be, i looked it up in taking charge, and it said the same thing, dont know if any of you are dealing with issues such as these or if youve spoken to anyone about it


Sorry to vent

GO TO A DR.....we started seeing a fertility specialist a few mos ago...it has shed a lot of light on things....don't just sit there and speculate....go see a dr and ask questions and be agressive, especially if you plan to have kids!

DEFINATELY go see a doctor!  Like jackieg said, it will definately help you shed some light on any issues you may be having.  I'm going to see one on December 16th and I'm getting anxious.  I just want to figure things out, kwim?


Just a quick question....were you on the pill until recently?  That could explain the dark bleeding as you don't actually ovulate while on the pill.
