second child a hussle

I removed my fibroids last year in Feb, after my gynae detected them during my first pregnancy. My gynae also advised me that if i wanted more i shouldn't wait too long as they might recurr. Now we have been trying for the baby since Oct last year and nothing seems to be coming. What i have noticed however is the fact that even though i have regular periods, my follow has changed a lot. l now have a very dark and thickened flow which only needs one pad per day, and only last for two days. However if l have sex during my "flow" immediately afterwards, l have improvements but only for some few hours. l wonder if there is anything wrong with my ovulation or what? Should i go see my gynae or am l just in a hurry [remember i stopped using triphasil June 2006].

Dear Tumi

The actual change in menstrual flow could be related to the operation itself or perhaps to hormonal changes such as elevated prolactin levels or deranged thyroid levels. These would need investigation first and if no abnormalities are noted then ovulation monitoring should be considered. Ideally urine LH testing kits should be used, e.g. Clearplan.
