Ep 213: Funky Bleeding

While potential parents struggle to get pregnant, managing abnormal periods with irregular, heavy, or absent menstrual bleeding frustrates an already complicated process. Join Dr. Carrie Bedient from The Fertility Center of Las Vegas, Dr. Abby Eblen from Nashville Fertility Center and Dr. Susan Hudson from Texas Fertility Center as they explain how strange bleeding patterns influence and inform fertility treatment. They set the stage of normal menstrual bleeding patterns and the common disruptions to those patterns. They review how to approach light spotting and heavy bleeding from the fertility perspective. The doctors discuss reasons for extremely heavy or non-stop bleeding and how that influences getting pregnant, as well as reasons for very minimal or completely absent bleeding. “Ask the Docs” questions this week focus on flying with IVF medications and supplementing trying to conceive naturally with progesterone. Join us as we decipher the event that kicks off every round of testing and treatment during the infertility journey!
