NOT PREGGO!!!So…today I had an apt. to go over my progesterone results with the doc and she said a normal level should be over 15 and mine was at a whopping 0.8, can we say WOW?! So needless to say she switched the Provera to Prometrium to hopefully get me a higher dosage of Progesterone and hopefully sometime in the near future I’ll have a possibility of becoming even fatter with a baby. Also I was taking 50mg of Clomid but now this cycle I’m up to 100mg. Still taking the 1000mg Metformin and to my great luck (hardly ever happens) I haven’t had too many side effects and I feel so bad for the women who are puking all day long :\.

So I was looking up the Luteal Phase Defect (my doc told me this was the prob) and I found some great ideas…B6 lengthens the Luteal Phase (you can take 50mg-200mg/daily), Vitex also helps somehow (It’s a natural herb in a capsule form), Byetta is good for weight controlling (but you have to have a prescription for it), and finally I never knew there were creams you could buy to rub on a fatty part of your body (thighs, arms, stomach) to increase your Progesterone levels. I think I’m gonna take a trip to see about all these…maybe they’ll work, who knows but none will hinder so I guess it’s worth a try!

    So sorry about the BFN. They are never easy. Good luck on 100mg of clomid. My first cycle at 100mg I got pregnant! 50mg didn’t do much for me either so I understand your frustration.

    You won’t want to take Vitex with clomid since they both do different things. Vitex is for balancing estrogen levels and clomid is an anti-estrogen. Other than that, I don’t know much about all of the progesterone creams and suppositories. Early on in my TTC career I took B6 to lengthen my luteal phase and I have to tell you that it absolutely did work wonders!

    Best of luck on your upcoming cycle!
