Hi girls I had a ruptured ectopic on march 7th 2013 I was 10 weeks gone and everything was brilliant. We had conceived on honeymoon :-) anyway I collapsed at home at 8am while getting ready for work but had no pain and over the phone dr. Said probably low blood pressure and would call out to see me when she could. It was 1.30 before she came - i still had no pain but was in and out of consciousness. Of course all things went nuts after that - ambulance E.R. Operation to remove the pregnancy and right tube and massive blood transfusion. I'm lucky to be alive. Anyway we are trying again since but I'm worried that I'm not ovulating. I get a period but it lasts for only 2 days with tiny spotting on day 3 my cycle is 30 days but at no stage during the month do I produce cervical mucus. I also did ovulation predictor kits but these were all negative! Did anyone else experience this too? - do I need to be worried do I need to see my dr.
Hi, so sorry for what you have been through, indeed lucky to be alive! It may be that your body is still under shock and requires a little longer to properly function. I agree that it seems you are not ovulating, it's no harm to have a day 3 screening and again a day 21 blood test to see your progesterone level. From your description it looks like your oestrogen isn't rising and your endometrium isn't thickening. There should be a post on what blood tests are indicated to check for ovulation. Keep us posted!!
