I'm pretty sure that this cycle is a bust. I'm 13 DPO and still testing negative. My temps are still up, but I'm pretty sure that is from the prometrium supplements. My OB's nurse just called to tell me to keep taking the prometrium through CD34 and then if still negative to stop. So, I guess I'll follow instructions even though based on my history, I would have tested positive by 10-11DPO. I guess the good news is that I will have a longer luteal phase this cycle which we were hoping for since it's been about 11 days. (That could be because of vitex and extra B as well).

Anyway, I'm just waiting for AF to show up so that I can get on with trying again; that's the draw back to continuing the prometrium...waiting longer!

I didn't ask, but I assume if I do by chance get AF before CD34 that I should stop the prometrium then? Waiting for a call back about potential for using clomid, so I will ask when I get a call back!

Anyway, that's all that is new with me!

AFAIK, AF won't show while taking progesterone. Hang in there, it could still happen, 13dpo is still early.

True, in most cases. But some women do. I don't think I am one of them though! I doubt I'm pregnant though, based on history, I've always gotten a positive by no later than 11 dpo. But, I can hope Smile

Each pregnancy is different, and the supplements might be changing you hormone levels to a point that they aren't showing yet. Don't get your hopes up too much, but don't be too bummed yet, either. I'm still crossing my fingers for you. Any news yet today?
