Good morning - this is my first post.
We have been TTC for a year, charting for 3 cycles. Last cycle my OB put me on 50 mg of clomid for a stronger ovulation and to lengthen my LP (average 10 days).
On my first clomid cycle, I started bleeding heavily on 10 DPO. Because it was so heavy, I called my OB on 12 DPO and was advised to test. There was a faint positive. As I was out of town I had to wait until 16 DPO to see my OB and get a blood test. The HCG count came back at 51, and then doubled the next day. I'm now on a progesterone supplement (200mg/day) and will see my OB again on Tuesday after having daily HCG counts.
While I'm cautiously optimistic, I don't understand how my body could sustain implantation after such a heavy bleed that lasted 6 days. It was the heaviest "period" of my life. I was actually so frightened that I considered going to the ER. But it did eventually let up. Now I just have faint cramping and mild spotting.
Are there other questions I should be asking my OB? Has anyone here ever maintained a pregnancy after such a heavy bleed? I'm afraid to be happy and am not sure how to best advocate for myself at this point.
Thank you so much.
