Our expert says:
There is no fixed amount that a woman should have, in terms of the menstrual flow. However as you are trying to fall pregnant the more important thing to find out is that are you ovulating or not? You will need to do a progesterone test in the mid cycle and if this were high it would indicate that you are ovulating. It would also be advisable for your gynaecologist to check that your endometrium is thick enough to allow for implantation to occur. If your menstrual flow is very very small in volume the possibility may exist that the endometrium is not getting as thick as is required for implantation to occur. However as you have been trying for the last 5 years to conceive, you got to look out for other factors that contribute to infertility and these will include semen analysis as well as patency of the fallopian tube.
