Nichole, I'm so sorry :HUG
I'm seeing an RE for the first time next week, for repeated m/c (just 2) and IF. I had my progesterone tested and it was 4.5 at 5dpo, plus I have a short luteal phase. I will let you know what they tell me.
One thing--call your insurance company to see what they cover. The fertility center works under the diagnosis "infertility" and therefore my insurance covers absolutely nothing, no tests, procedures, nothing. And I have really good insurance otherwise--PPO. So if your regular doc can do some testing, etc. to get the ball rolling that can save some $$. Unfortunately I had to beg my regular OB just to do the prog. test so I decided not to fool around and went straight to the RE.
As for what I am taking:
I was using natural progesterone cream but we're taking time off now so I'm not this cycle
Trazodone 50mg & Cymbalta 20mg for PPD & PTSD
On the last 2--I just switched from zoloft (100mg) (wasn't working & made me gain 40lbs in 2 years) and tried both lexapro and wellbutrin in the space of a month. Both made me suicidal and made me feel like I was getting electric shock therapy. I've been on this new cocktail 6 days and already feel 100x better. But they are both pregnancy category C--cymbalta especially is so new there are no studies. My doc knows I want to conceive but I don't really have other options for meds that are safer--they don't work/make me crazy. So I am not sure what to do. That is why we are taking some time off until I get a fertility workup and decide about the meds.
I talked to my MW this weekend at the LLL conference and she didn't have any other advice besides what we've already talked about, esp. about the meds, but she wants to know what the RE recommends. At least clomid is pretty cheap, right? I hope it doesn't come to that.
