16 days?!

My cycle only lasted 16 days... WTF?! Warning -- graphic AF details -- And it is a VERY heavy one. Today is CD 3 and AF has been very heavy and bright red with lots of clots for all 3 days. I have never had a cycle only last 16 days. My last cycle after IVF attempt #1 which was converted to IUI was very long.. 32 days to be exact. This sucks as I have been unusually frisky and DH and I have been enjoying ourselves. ;-)

I have an appointment with a new RE on Friday and I am hoping that I don't have uterine polyps again which can cause the short heavy cycles. OR it could be the endometrisosis returning. I'm going to be obsessing about it until Friday.

I am trying to focus on a positive new year with a new RE and new hope for a baby in '08 but I'm having a hard time at the moment.

At least I got to leave work early today. The NYPD were blocking off roads and shutting down subways stations early around my building. Since my office is not far from Times Square, I got out of there. It's madness.

Anyway, I'm going to crack into the bubbly early this year...

I found that any post treatment AF was wacky. Still haven't had mine since the miscarriage. I hope you're not brought too far down by it.

I'll crack open my bubbly, too, and toast to better years for us both.

I had a 19 day cycle once. I attribute it to the drugs. I've also had crazy long cycles (I can't remember now but one was over 40 days) since I started fertility treatments. I used to have very regular cycles and now I have given up trying to figure it out and just hope that when I'm done with all of this, my cycle will go back to its dependable self.

I've had the random super short cycles out there. Don't let it freak you out. Look at it as you getting to try again sooner? (silver lining, I know.)
