If it were me I would talk to my doctor just for peace of mind.  Are you charting other information like cervical fluid?  That would give information about ovulation as well.  Also are you taking your  temp after a good full night’s sleep?  I just posted about how my temps were pretty flat line but I think it’s because I don’t sleep soundly through the night and by the time I wake up i’ve gotten up several times in the last few hours.  Just some thoughts. Good luck with everything!

Often that type of bleeding could be considered break-through bleeding, not a true period.  That would probably mean that your cycles are annovulatory.  I would definitely check everything out with your OBGYN as soon as you can.  There’s no need to wait a certain amount of time.  Good luck!

Personally I would wait and only see a doctor if I’ve been trying seriously for a year without getting pregnant.

you should absolutely see a doc. infact any woman who has been trying for more than a year and hasn;t had any luck should see someone just to make sure they are healthy and there are no preventable issues standing in their way. i am sure you are fine and whatever is going on just needs a little help along but the later you check it out the less time you will have to make your dream baby. i am wishing you all the luck in the world and i bet you feel feel a world better when you know what is going on and can start to fix it.

see an Reproductve endocrinologist if you can but if you are unable to do that then you may be able to get a refferal from your gyn or ask them about checking blood work and ultrasound/hsg.

@elchalten:  They could still be annovulatory if there is a chance you have PCOS.  You could get false positives on an OPK as your body tries to ovulate.  Definitely see a doctor.

After 6 months i would go in anyway. particularly if you are over 30 but also because you have a very real concern. the worst that could happen is you are told you are just fine and have a sense of relief while you continue on your journey.

Bring your charts with you and give the doc as many details as possible. note that you are supposed to get  FSH and E2 bloodwork on day 3 of your period typically and then progestrone, AMH and other types at another time, after ovulation i believe.

this chart offers a good example of how the bloodwork portion works but best to just get answers from a qualified doctor soon:

Extra weight, mostly around the middle.  It doesn’t have to be a lot of weight (I was about 10-15 lbs overweight).  And difficult to lose it.

Hair loss on your head, or extra hair in other places (chin, chest, nipples, etc).

Breakthrough bleeding instead of periods.  They don’t come regularly and may either be real light or real heavy.  This can vary.  

I know you have real light periods.  Do you have anything else?

@elchalten:  Having any issue with a cycle should really be brought to your doctors attention regardless if your TTC or not for a year.  Having a well visit before TTC is usually recommended anyways, so it’s probably good to get in their and see if they think what’s going on is normal.

Oh…here is a question..

You say you use OPKs.  Do you get a gradually darker line, or does it come and go until the day it is dark enough?
