Funny, I was just wondering the same.

Not sure? But ask your doctor. Mine is going to order progesterone suppositories for my next TTC.

My recent gp is oblivious and rude. I doubt she would care, hence me doing research on my own. And my ob no longer sees me, so we are doing this alone.

I am going to ask for my previous bw results on the Wed when I go for my synthroid prescription though and maybe I will be able to tell if my levels are ok or not, because nobody has told me anything.

Ah, I see. Sorry your doc is being difficult! My suggestion would be to contact a compounding pharmacy and talk with the pharmacist about it. They make stuff like that all the time and I believe they sell it OTC. Also, may be time to change docs?

Good idea. They are starting to let pharmacists here prescribe over Dr's so I assume they are fairly knowledgeable. I wish I could change docs. There is a shortage here so I have to go to a transitional clinic and see whatever doc is available. I usually get a really good one but she has been on vacation forever.

Nope, Canada. There are hardly any drs in my city and walk in clinics are the worst drs I have ever been to, so I usually only go if I have to. It's hard to find a good one here.

wow that stinks. I've heard the same from other ladies. So sorry you have to deal with that. I guess I will quit complaining about my huge deductible!

Well its not an issue of country. There are crappy drs all over. I just happen to live in a city that can't keep up with the growing population.

B
I am in Canada also in Alberta and its the same here. I have to wait 4 months to see a OBGYN, which is ridiculous. I went down south to see another doctor for a second opinion cause I have never had a problem concieving before and my family is all very fertile, my old family doctor kinda laughed at me and told me relaxe. He said the wait was a year down there. In the mean time.
I had been spotting after we BD 3 days before AF was due and thats never happened so I figured my Lp was to short due to Low Progesterone levels. First normal cycle I had was last month and I should mention I only get 26 day cycles. This month I spent the moneny on OPK's and I O'd on day 13. We had BD everyday.
I was taking a prenatal vitamin and vitamin B6 then I switched to Vitamin B6 and B12 with folic acid, I havent taken them for over a week now cause I got a sinus infection and was on antibiotics. Im pretty sure Im out this month. Last month I thought for sure I was PG, I had every sign. Then boom AF came. This month I still feel the same as last.
I just turned 30 and I started freaking out cause this is my second marriage but I already have 3 kids previous and he doesnt have any and the thought of not being able to share that with him also breaks my heart.
