I have some late cycle spotting that has worried me. I've been to my OB and a fertility doc and the fertility doc said not to worry about it yet, as we have not been trying a year.
I've had it for as long as I can remember, but now that we have been TTC since Feb 10 and so far nothing, so I am wondering if it is playing a role. Anyway, I read that some people use a progesterone cream after ovulation, so I bought one at the health food store. I read the ingredients on various brands and it seemed that some did not say the source of the progesterone, some were from wild yam, and some were from soy. I bought the one from soy because t was the cheapest, but now am wondering if that may have been a mistake since you aren't supposed to use that much soy when you are pregnant, because of the hormonal effects. But...I WANT the hormonal effects in this case, no?
Anyway, I will probably use it until I have a BFP (knock on wood) and then maybe switch to a more expensive brand for the first tri. I just don't want to pay all this money if I won't even be preggo for a while. But if anyone knows any reason why the soy brand might be bad idea, it might be worth the money to switch.
Thanks for any suggestions or experience!
