I don't know whats up with my body these days *rant*

Okay really? Aunt flow decides to visit me after 23 days. 23! Not 30, not the typical extended cycle, but 23. That means if I *DID* ovulate, which I don't think I did, but if I DID that means my Luteal Phase was REALLY short. That is BAD NEWS. :/ I really don't know what my body is doing these days, but it bothers me.

*IF* I ovulated, I think it would have been on CD15, where my "dip" was, but unfortunately, my OPK was negative, so I have no idea what is going on.

Do you see the dip in CD15? But Fertility Friend is insistent that my ovulation occurred between CD11 and CD21, but I do not think if I got aunt flow today, that ovulation was even possible.

Very Very Weird right?

Anyway, I have to wonder if the issue is that I changed my diet recently, and I also have to wonder if the fact that I am dealing with my grief is why the change occurred  I am confused as what my body is doing, and it is very worrysome...

I will upload the reccomendations from my Fertility Specialist in a separate blog post, as I got her reccomendations today in the mail...

I have an appointment with my Hematologist and plan to discuss all these recent findings of clotting issues and MTHFR with her, as I feel my risk of clotting is much higher, but in doing research, one thing stuck out to me most, and I mention this because the Reproductive Endocrinologist/Fertility Specialist did not think that Alex's sperm count was bad, and thought it looked really good, and she also mentioned that my miscarraiges were far too early for FVL and MTHFR to have caused them, so when I found out about these other clotting issues, I did some research and found this:

"Women with factor X deficiency may experience heavy menstrual bleeding (menorrhagia), be susceptible to first trimester miscarriage or other complications during pregnancy and delivery."

- http://www.hemophilia.org/NHFWeb/MainPgs/MainNHF.aspx?menuid=188&contentid=52&rptname=bleeding

I have factor 10 deficiency, and I also have heavy menstrual bleeding, and have been severly susceptible to first trimester miscarraiges (as you know) so it just made me wonder.

Anyway, here is my chart for clotting:

Amazing how many clotting factors I came back positive for.

Anyway, if you have had a 23andMe test done, and are curious as to what your MTHFR Status is, and what puts you at risk, Please visit MTHFR Support, and contact a specialist who can analyze your genome, as they provide feedback. They charge $50 per hour in doing this analysis. The website is: http://www.mthfrsupport.com/

Also, if you have not had a 23andMe test done, please go to 23andme.com and take advantage of it! It has benefits of ancestry and health benefits, AND it is only $99! I bought mine in November and paid $299 for mine, so take advantage of it!

Anyway, thats my rant for tonight... I will scan the document from the fertility specialist and update it here in a separate blog post.
