RESULTS: My system has hung. Midwife compared it to a skipping record; I think of it as more like the computer freezing up so that the only thing to do is reboot.
I'm not surprised by this at all. Estrogen is up, LH is way way up, but progesterone is down. My body is trying to O and not making it. Why? Wrong signals or signals not getting thru from the hypothalamus, probably. Same old story.
Re: the progesterone I took 3 weeks ago, it probably weakened after a year of sitting around and therefore wasn't enough. The plan is to try that again.
However, on Monday I have a consultation w/acupuncturist. This is partly about my fertility and partly about my killer headaches. Better not to be on any meds when he evaluates me, I figured. Also, I'll ask whether it's best to go ahead w/prog. or to have some acupuncture first. Having had a little bleeding, there's no rush to make it happen again.
I don't know.... I feel acupuncture is worth a try while I'm waiting to get thru a whole year of trying (that'll be in August) but it's hard to believe it'll work. Mainly, I feel like this is just not going to work until one of those rare months when I happen to O, and there's no telling how long that will take.
