Who wants a period? Ugh! No one except for the women of IF land. That messy, emotionally-laden, bloated time brings one good thing to the IFers - CD1, that's what.
All we do is wait. And when you haven't had a period for 6 weeks (with nothing in sight) and you need to get one to start a CD1 and get rolling with whatever you have coming next - for me, that's an endometrial biopsy to rule out a missing integrin protein in my uterus - you really don't want to be waiting extra weeks or months for a period.
I was usually regular - short, but regular (24-25 days) when a month before my 41st birthday in early December 2007, I didn't get my period for almost 2 months, which is what prompted my Gyn to give me the Day 3 testing panel (FSH, E2) and when that ugly 12.8 number was read to me. And this year, right along with my 42nd birthday, my period didn't come back the next cycle. Maybe it's some early menopause signs, which shouldn't be terribly surprising with an FSH of 22. C'est la vie!
I just want to get this awful test out of the way and get my results back and know a donor should be just around the corner. Verrrrrry much hoping! :)
