So sorry to hear of your miscarriage, cldeshano. I am sure changing your diet will help in many ways. More an more I can see how nutrition helps with fertility.
*Litmama*,I am sorry about your early loss. I am amazed at how low your progesterone is, particularly when you have no symptoms of low progesterone. Personally, I have always thought my progesterone is fine because my LP is good, no spotting before AF, but clearly, in your experience it can still be low. So will you go on the suppositories every luteul phase? Or can you wait til you get BFP?
If I ever get another BFP, I will hi-tailing it down to my doctor for a progesterone script( my doctor wants me to wait til then for some reason?). I have been using progesterone cream every month, though last month I didn't. I don't know if it made any difference, but this month I had a lot of EWCM which I haven't had for a long time, so I do wonder if the progesterone cream could have been lowering my estrogen, which affected the next cycle? Anyway, I ovulated about two days ago and it was a very strong ovulation, I may have even released an egg each side as I had O pain each side, so I will use the progesterone cream, starting tomorrow, just in case there's a baby on board (I really hope so). When I had my second miscarriage, I had my progesterone tested about a month later ( I actually thought I was pregnant again, but I now think it was residule HCG in my system) and I had a level of 35. The doctor said it was a good level for sustaining a pregnancy. But,as you said, the levels can change over time, and it has been a year and half since then.
I asked my doctor about monitoring progesterone in early pregnancy and she said we can do that, but it is likely to fluctuate a lot and that won't really tell us very much.
I also had a large corpus luteum cyst with my first miscarriage, which indicates to me that my progesterone must have been fine. What do you think? I suppose every pregnancy is different.
Just when I thought I would give up ttc because I am tired of the whole thing, I feel a renewed vigor. It seems so foolish to start feeling optomistic again at the age of 46, but I am hoping I'll get that surge of fertility I have heard that some perimenopausal women get . Besides, my cycle is still very regular and I seem to be ovulating regularly. Of course, I am aware that the egg that is released (if indeed it is) every month may be of less than perfect quality, but there's still a good chance that one of these months there will be a healthy one.
A big hello to everyone out there. This thread has become so quiet. Perhaps it is time for a new one?
