My uterus has gone rogue

Took my last progesterone last night before bed.

Just started spotting. I was really hoping to start tomorrow, so now it’s going to be CD 4 on Monday when I go for my first RE visit. Hopefully that’s not too late :-/

So in answer to the question of whether or not you can bleed on 200 mg progesterone? Yes, yes you can.

  1. Oh, the rogue uterus! I am familiar with this. My uterus is all “whatever! I do what I want!” w/r/t bleeding, structure, and response. Quite the little rebel, my uterus.

    Sorry yours is also misbehaving. I hope all goes well with the RE anyway!

    • That’s what most authorities on the internet say too, so in a way this is perfect timing. Thank you uterus. I take back all those terrible things I said about you.

      Now would it be too much to ask to keep the cramps to a reasonable minimum? Yes? Okay, forget I said anything.

  2. If you’re spotting today, would that maybe make tomorrow CD1? I don’t know, there are a lot of rules about how to calculate CD1, but it’s all pretty subjective to me!

    • I am spotting as of now, but there’s so much time left in the day that I feel certain I’ll head to full flow by the time I leave work. I never have a day of just spotting. But it seems like i’ll be okay either way it goes. Here’s a freeing feeling-there’s NOTHING I can do about it!

  3. My RE said we could get accurate “CD 3 blood draws” on CD2-4 with CD 3 just being the ideal time and they don’t consider spotting CD 1. They always said that they wouldn’t do bloodwork until CD2-4 after CD 1 was a full flow. Hopefully that means it will all work out for you!

  4. Well that is silly. Typical that one’s uterus would be a little wench. Sounds right on par, huh? I bet the RE appt will go perfectly though. Usually there is a bit of wiggle room with most labs. I hope this weekend isn’t too awful with the start of that period!! You’ll be in my thoughts monday!

  5. Also, I think most docs won’t count a period until you’re at full capacity. Spotting doesn’t count. Monday could still be CD 3.
