Common Questions and Answers about Menstrual cycle in dogs


Avatar n tn how long does a typical menstrual cycle last and what should the owner do besides keeping her unavailable to prospective males?
Avatar n tn thyroid can influence menstrual cycles but more likely the perimenopausal state is the main factor.

Avatar f tn Vitex is used as an herbal treatment for infertility and is especially helpful for women with irregular cycles, failure to ovulate, or a short luteal phase(a shortened second half of the menstrual cycle). The effectiveness of Vitex increases over time with continued use. Red Raspberry Leaf is highly regarded for its ability to tone the uterus and muscles of the pelvic region.
270512 tn?1333181236 I have to take priveria in order to bring on a pd. Now, she has me on Clomid (50mg) days 5-9 day 12 I went in for a ultrasound...nothing my follicules were 8cm, went 3days later...nothing.( They need to be @ 22cm) Now she increase the med. clomid to (100mg)days 5-9, went for ultrasound found that my rgt. ovary has many follicules but are tiny and left ovary grew 4.5mm so now it is (12.5cm) from the first cycle of clomid.
Avatar f tn my boobs hurt a little, but that's probably somewhat normal for around this time in my cycle. and then i had a bloody nose this morning, but i'm not sure if that's associated with anything. i think the air was a little dry. i pray it's my month though! i don't know how many more times i can get my hopes up for them to get torn down at the end of the month.
280700 tn?1210287416 I think when people see miscarriages with clomid, it's because they are being watched so carefully that they find out they are pregnant much earlier than they normally would, so they are aware of miscarriages very early in the cycle that if ttc naturally without doctor intervention, they probably wouldn't know about. I would have never known about that twin if I hadn't been being scrutinized with an ultrasound probe every week from very early on!
Avatar f tn I'm sure there's a rational behind it as I've seen many women post they've had IUI twice in a cycle; I've often wondered if they did not have the vaginal u/s to determine # of follies and sizes? But I'm brand new to this and just speculating. Are you having two IUIs this cycle, Hopeful? @Ecologic- thanks for the well wishes! I'm not going to fret over the lack of CM unless this round doesn't work and then I'll discuss it with my OB/GYN.
1160836 tn?1332333769 Now I looked myself in the mirror 2 wks ago, and I noticed that my breast were just a little perky and getting really swallow. I just put it as ok side effects! Now my menstrual cycle came natural this time. But I hadn’t had a menstrual cycle since December 2009. I took urine test all have come back negative. Also now, I just don’t know when to take the test to see, nor what is going on. I called my doctor and he is out of the country on Vacation. GREAT!!
Avatar n tn , but if your dog has not been spayed then potential reasons for a bloody vaginal discharge would be a heat cycle (which occurs every 6 months in dogs) or an infection in the uterus or urinary tract. Your veterinarian will be able to tell what the cause is based on exam and microscopic analysis of the cells lining the vagina.
Avatar f tn I kid you not, I had a low grade fever for 5 years. Now I am lucky if my body temp gets to 97.
Avatar n tn I am not sure as the same ingredients in Bendectin are in Unisom and a prenatal. both of which can and are often allowed in pregnancy. There many things that can cause PCOS, including something as easily remedied as being overweight. Endometriosis remains a mystery to many as far as the root cause is concerned. I suppose one may never really know if the two are related. At any rate, congratulations on the upcoming grandchild!
567488 tn?1244744266 DH said to call back and see if he can log this cycle in as being IUI so insurance can cover another two cycles. Keep your fingers crossed. I hope they do. In the meantime, I think I'll go out and get ALLI to lose some of the darn weight (20+lbs to date over the past 9 months...), then settle in with a nice glass of wine...or two..... And, I just wanted to let you know to be careful driving with the Lupron.
585414 tn?1288944902 That being said, I know to watch for signs of hypomania when I feel like my menstrual cycle may begin. But because I don't always have a cycle (I get 6 or less per year due to another diagnoses), it doesn't always occur when I think it's going to. Or, I get no warning of impending doom (that's what it feels like for me because so many problems are going to occur at once) and I am unprepared. Like today. Today, I am hypomanic.
Avatar f tn However, 2 weeks after the stroke, she noticed some signs that indicate she is leading up to her first menstrual cycle. I have to say that, even though she had a stroke that initially left her with no movement on her right side and the inability to speak, she has fully recovered. With no other cause detected, could it be the surge in hormones? It makes you wonder. . .
605458 tn?1265086851 at stepdad for usual reasons. Complaining that our dog runs up barking at two neighbor dogs that come into our yard and one, a Bordie Collie, starts tying to herd our dog and bites at her feet...uh, of course she's going to bark! And no she didn't start a fight! She was getting along fine with the other dog, doing the usual dog stuff after these dogs trespassed, but it was the Bordie Collie that was biting OUR dog! And he's mad because I didn't do anything to get the dog under control?????
800104 tn?1251389837 In dogs, it's not exactly the same as a Menstrual Period in Humans. For a start, it's the other way around in dogs. It is the equivalent of their "ovulation". Her "Heat" cycle will last approximately 21 days (3 weeks) The first week, you will notice drops of red blood. In the second week, her vulva will swell slightly, or may look reddened, so don't worry if you see that -and the bleeding will not be so obvious.
Avatar n tn As ginger stated, the heat cycle lasts for about 21 days. Her vulva will be VERY swollen and she will spot red blood for about the first week. After that, the spotting will stop, but don't relax, because after she stops spotting is when she is most likely to allow a male dog to breed her. Don't consider her to be out of heat until all the swelling is gone from her vulva, because even if it's longer than 21 days, if she is still swollen, she can still be bred and she can still conceive.
458090 tn?1256324762 Endometrial biopsies are taken during the spontaneous menstrual cycle before the IVF cycle. Three biopsy samples are taken on days 8, 12, and 21 of the cycle. For convenience the sample may be taken a day earlier or later. In each biopsy, the endometrial sample is taken from several spots. This is a simple procedure that can be performed easily in your clinic by your gynecologist. It is important to mention that this procedure works only to improve receptivity of the uterus.
502195 tn?1210322816 The Vet is unable to diagnose any problem, the dog has no fever though the last menstrual cycle she went thru, the bleeding was for an overly large number of days, there does seem to be a very slight growth in the Uterus but could that be preventing her from eating. She can barely even stand now. Need some assistance.
Avatar f tn She's taking vetmedin, lasix, and some other heart med. however, since her last menstrual cycle, she's continued to bleed from her vaginal area too. At first, my male dogs were still acting as if she was in heat (went on for over 3 months). I ended up getting the males fixed during this time b/c the vet said she couldn't do surgery on her b/c of her weight and age.
Avatar f tn I can take a suburban bus or train and be in Manhattan in under an hour ...... how cool is the Internet! What State are you in?

Avatar m tn Cows are also injected with synthetic hormones such as recombinant bovine growth hormone (rBGH) to increase the production of milk which can cause hormone imbalances and weight gain in humans. A diet low in fat, high in fiber and whole grains can help reverse Type-2 diabetes, reduce body weight and address unhealthy cholesterol levels. The addition of fruits and vegetables are also excellent at managing insulin levels.
320773 tn?1202776088 That I should have gone to medical school like my mom wanted, because I've had to do so much medical research by now just to figure out what was wrong with me, I might as well be an M.D. That I would know more about the female reproductive system and menstrual cycle than most of the doctors I go to. That living your life in 2 week increments would be the norm That you never knew how much you wanted to see those 2 pink lines......

1976117 tn?1332030670 A good writer named Patricia McConnell has written a bit about this in dogs, it's all worth knowing about when you have a domineering male cat also. Apparently primates, like us, have a very different set of signals than canines and felines regarding alpha and beta, and cats and dogs can read what we think of as decent and friendly gestures as indicators that we're not in control. Worth a shot.
Avatar n tn I was on clomid for this cycle. I had a d/c nov 2005. I have used clomid for 3 of my 4 other kids,but that was 5 yrs ago was the last one. any thought would be welcomed.
