Question: ttc periods getting shorter
|anamika78 - Mon Aug 04, 2008 11:43 pm||
I am 30 and ttc since 1.5 years. I just got my tests done and all hormone levels are ok.
But i have observed my periods have become much shorter. When they started when i was 13, they laster 5 days- 1st day medium bleeding, 2nd day heavy, 3rd day medium, little on 4th and very little on 5th. This process came to fit into 4 days when I was around 26-27 years old. After marriage, became shorter and since a few months this whole process is over in 48 hours.
I was wondering if this could be the reason i am not able to conceive? But the hormone tests are all ok.
Is this something i should be worried about ?
Waiting for your reply.

No, this is not likely to have anything to do with your conception attempts. However, you might want to have an evaluation. Your husband could get a sperm count through a urologist and if that looks fine your doctor might be able to intervene if you are possibly not ovulating every month. Sometimes it just takes patience.
