Opinion needed: Last period was a 35 day cycle (unusual for me), now I just got my period again after only 17 days! Cause for worry? Stress? Pre-Menopause? My FSH does not indicate menopause but I'm 43...

    Hopefully it is just a wonky cycle, but it could be the start of perimenopause. At the beginning of perimenopause, the FSH may not yet be high (and can also be suppressed if your estradiol is high, which is also seen in perimenopause).

    As for the "adrenal fatigue" - please read this:

    I just don't want your doctor to assume your cycle irregularities are due to this fictitious...

    Thanks for this...As for adrenal issues, I am seeing a hormone specialist who is specifically testing for things. One thing that is known for sure is that my cortisol levels are out of whack. My understanding is that cortisol can impact the other hormones too.

Did a D&C last cycle as a more aggressive trauma but still ended up with a BFN, wondering if I should do another or just opt for the scratch instead

Do you ever get the feeling your being left behind? Will we ever get our rainbow? Thinking our journey is almost to it's next chapter and I am thinking I will have to deal with being childless :(

Will I ever learn the lesson of not reading the comments on the CBC website that pertain to anything fertility related? Good lord, but people are mean.

    But I bet those are the same people who happily send lots of money to that guy for his potato salad or whatever that was a while ago. It is really scary how stupid a lot of people are.

    It's the ones that are probably sitting on social assistance with a bunch of kids and know nothing about infertility and what it's like to have to experience it. Sad that ppl can't keep their negative comments to themselves.

Just waiting on beta to confirm the BFN from our last fet. We're out of embryos so we’re back to IVF. DH hasn't taken supplements for years. What are everyone's thoughts on Fertilaid vs the slew of vitamins I made him take last time. His sperms count was less than 1 million. ICSI was our only option.

    I have a friend whose husband had really good results with Fertilaid. Make sure he takes them with food though because they can make him nauseous.

Discovered I gained 8 pounds during my FET, clearly I need to occupy the 2ww with things other than breakfast/lunch/dinner dates

    I gained about that with every cycle I did...fresh or frozen...and this time was no different and it was unmedicated. Sucks!!!!

    That's the tough part. Eating is a great distraction - especially when you can't drink.

    I always gained weight while cycling but blame it on the meds as I didn't really change my eating habits. Usually lost the majority of the bloat once stopping the meds, thankfully. (The only good consolation after a failed cycle I suppose!!)

Does anyone know if you can use CoQ10 while breastfeeding? My naturopath thinks it should be fine.

    Not sure about breastfeeding but I was told to stop before transfer because there were no studies showing it's effects in pregnancy. Being told that, I don't think I'd take it when breastfeeding.

    Fascinating from a science standpoint! A surrogate would still be needed; I wonder if that makes it harder or easier.

    It would make it easier in some ways as the baby would genetically related to both and they would just need a gestational surrogate rather than to find an egg donor or traditional surrogate.
