Thanks ladies..

Danaa- that's what I read too! That 7 DPO is the day to go. I guess I'll just push it back to next month at this point since I'm now 8 DPO. And possibly find a new DR!!

Kat- Thanks for the info. Did your progesterone end up being normal too?

Mglupe- I agree- I don't know what the big deal is. It's my money, and I'm willing to pay to finally get some answers!

Overall, I'm learning that the average OBGYN has NO clue about infertility- they just know the basics.

An example is this.. she said "are you getting smiley faces on your clear blue monitor?" I said "Yes, I get positive OPK's every month" and she responds "Oh great, that means you're ovulating!" I said "No that actually doesn't mean a person ovulates.. but I temp too which how I confirm ovulation"... she looked at me confused! So annoying! I need to find a specialist!

At least I think I'm 8 dpo?! Fertility Friend initially said I O'd on CD 15, but after my temp this morning they changed it to CD 17. I manually changed it back to CD 15 since I thought they were wrong.

Feel free to looks at my chart and give me feedback on my O day! Thanks!

Ugh im so annoyed for you Veronica,I would expect a doctor to know that a positive opk means ur lh spiked but that doesn't guarantee that your going to O.
Definitely find a specialist .

Yeah my first one was at 32 and the second was 25 which is the normal range, she said anything above 20 shows ovulation.

Hi ladies... I'm back!

So I got my progesterone checked yesterday at 7DPO and it was 12.5... I'm getting mixed reviews on whether this is a good # or not!

I'm reading that anything over 10 is good for an unmedicated cycle... is that the experience you guys have had?

The no seems ok it could be better but I don't think is a big problem,mine was over 20 always on a natural cycle.
You could use some vagina progesterone after O just to be safe but that is something you should talk to ur doc

Veronica - 12.5 sound ok to me! I have PCOS and had low progesterone. It was discovered with my first miscarriage after my first son. After that I had my progesterone tested as soon as I got a bfp, and was on suppositories for the next few pregnancies for the entire first trimester. A level of 10 supports a healthy pregnancy. My daughter's level was a 7, but we got lucky. I always tested and got the suppositories as soon as I found out. I also had lower temps, which is an earmark of low progesterone - yours look good. I would feel comfortable with thinking progesterone wasn't the issue.

I am rather surprised she isn't going ahead with an hcg, since you've been ttc for 14 months. And since she seems reluctant to do the simple blood tests you request, maybe she can give you a referral to an RE.

I did do fertility medication once upon a time (my original doctor told me that I would never conceive, and that my first son was a miracle... And for a while it *was* really difficult to conceive! My second son took almost 2 years to conceive, with the first miscarriage a few months before his conception). I took clomid and had an hcg shot to trigger ovulation, as well as frequent ultrasounds to monitor my egg growth.

Good luck with your dh's SA. I hope it goes well. Obviously, I stalk you. :D I hope you get your bfp very soon!

Hi Crysann!! It warms my heart that you're still keeping an eye on me! I'm going to do the HSG soon.. I'm waiting until my husband gets his SA done since the HSG would be an expensive procedure with my crappy insurance- I don't want to move forward with it if we find that my husbands sperm is the issue. However, my husband has been putting off his SA for a couple of months now. I've been VERY patient with him- and patience is NOT my strong suit. He's finally going to do it this week. We'll see what the results say!

How are you feeling!? How's the pregnancy going? Any name for your girl yet?!

Well ladies.. after 16 cycles it looks like I may not have to do the HSG after all! I am VERY cautiously optimistic... :D I'm 14 DPO today, period is a no show so far, and I've had very very faint lines/shadows for the past day or two and these are much darker today!
