Julie & Mel: We did initial testing in April 2012 with my OB/GYN. My progesterone levels were only 9.8 - which she said was "fine" and it indicated that I ovulated. We are seeing an RE b/c of male infertility. When we met with the RE I told him of my short cycles, so he suggested I try clomid. I've been on it for the past 3 months, and my levels have been 15, 17.5, & 14.2, respectively, all around 7 DPO. I think they are too low for being medicated, and to maintain a pregnancy. Yet the RE insist they are "good #'s"
But I've started tracking my cycles in July 2011, and almost every cycle was 24-26 days long, with spotting 1-2 days beforehand. I HAVE NEVER spotted mid-cycle, or even after DTD.
I have an appt on Monday for an US to determine if I have a polyp or fibroid, and I guess he'll swab to see if I have an infection. If he is able to eliminate these things, then I may ask to do an IUI this cycle. It only cost $350 for an unmonitored cycle, and my insurance covers 90% - so it's not like we're wasting a lot of $ if we still can't find the problem....
I think I'm convinced to book an apt soon too after reading all this.
Julie, your in sooner then November something (your other post)?
Good for you. Good luck gals
I am still around. My temps are bouncing around but I suspect yesterday's low is due to lack of sleep and it being suddenly chilly in the morning. Still quiet fatigued but I am coming out of having another Hemiplegic migraine again (they make one side of my body go numb before the head ache hits and you can literally draw a straight line down my body to what I can feel and what is numb or tingly.)
Motherhood after Infertility
Jordan - I'm so sorry!!!!!! I was really thinking this was your month!!
So guess I'll hang out around here...IF I get to do IUI this cycle, then EDD would be July 30...I'll board hop
