Is a triphasic BBT chart a good indication of pregnancy? Still have a week until expected period

Not really : A pregnancy test is much better. Home pregnancy tests are very accurate. They are the same tests used in a doctors office. They can detect a pregnancy 7-10 days after conception.

Brachial artery shows triphasic flow but with blunting of the dialostic component and suggests collateral distal flow. What does this mean?

Brachial artery shows triphasic flow but with blunting of the dialostic component and suggests collateral distal flow. What does this mean?

Perhaps a fistula: Arterial blood flow has three phases, rapid forward flow systolic flow, transient reversal of flow during early diastole, and slow forward flow during late diastole.

Ultrasound says that the brachial artery has normal triphasic flow but also indicates collateral distal flow. What is collateral distal flow? Bad?

Flow around blockage: Distal collateral arterial flow would imply that an arterial branch of the brachial artery such as the ulnar or radial artery is blocked or narrowed. When this happens, small branching arteries that can bridge the blocked segment enlarge to get some blood beyond the blockage. These collateral branches maintain viability and some function of the areas affected by the main blockage. ...Read more

Why does clear thick mucus sometimes come out during withdrawal bleed while on triphasic pill? (Like ortho tri cyclen lo)

Why does clear thick mucus sometimes come out during withdrawal bleed while on triphasic pill? (Like ortho tri cyclen lo)

Light menses?: Women on hormonal contraception generally have relatively light menses. Also, the healthy vagina and inner labia make mucus etc. to lubricate and moisten these areas. Estrogens may induce additional mucus production. A combination of less bleeding & more mucus production might make the mucus more visible. As long as the mucus is clear & you don't have other symptoms, don't be alarmed. ...Read more
