Progesterone help!

Postby MegsRemainsHopeful » Sat Mar 22, 2008 5:19 am

Hey ladies! K, so my temp went up, not as high as I would have liked to seen but if it stays above 97.5 for the next couple of days FF gives me SRCL for yesterday. Since my temps are still low, think I should go to the Herb Shop and get some Progesterone cream to use during this TWW?? Or, think maybe using the holistic Dr's ProGest drops would help?? I'm just SO concerned I have low Progesterone... I believe I did O as my OPK is super neg now and well my temp did spike a nice jump, just wish it was higher...

Thanks ladies in advance!!! I know I have read contradicting posts on those with experience using Progesterone cream... I am currently taking DHA, Vitex, B6, Folic Acid, and Geritol Complete. Think Progesterone Cream would be too "Over the top" for me and I should just see what happens with this cycle as next cycle I have a whole new POA!

Wow! A 5 day LP last cycle?? :shock: :shock: Something is definitely not happening correctly in there, hon. Add to that all the spotting you also had...I'd definitely say it could be low pro. I think I'd head to the docs and demand a blood test specifically keeping an eye on your progesterone. You could (probably) have short LP disorder which is anything less than 10 days. Are your cycles always this short and do you always have such a short LP? I would definitely be trying some sort of progesterone, whether is the cream or maca or something else, you're gonna be hard pressed to get PG with the way things are looking. Hope you find something that works for you! :hugs:

Thanks for the response! :-) With last cycle, I am not 100% convinced I did O as I was so sick during that time and with my OPKs going from neg to pos to neg to pos to neg I don't know what was going on! That was the shortest cycle I have EVER had! And NO, my cycles are usually REALLY long!

I have a thoery about the last cycle... Ready for this? LOL My theory is that the spotting, since it was SO light, was really Ovulation spotting and since low progesterone levels are a-typical for PCOSers I think I have it too and thus the spotting leading to bleeding. I'm THINKING that the Vitex I have been taking since March 5 is trying so hard to normalize my cycles and is over compensating thus making my cycles ultra short!

I have since purchased "Cycle 1" and "Cycle 2" from my herb shop and will start that once AF arrives so hopefully that too will help normalize my cycles!

Oh, and my current dr. does not nor will he do any "tests" such as a monthly progesterone test until I am on Met for six months and try Clomid for an additional three months (nine months before he'll do anything!) as he is absolutely convinced I just need to take these meds to get pg! So he's about useless and with us moving and such, I don't want to put in the time or energy in finding a new Dr! :-)

Sorry for writing a book!!! :-) Thanks for your thoughts!
