Well first you need to know if you really do have an LP problem... Right now, based on that, it doesn't look like you've o'd yet.
Wow! Thank you all so much for the quick responses! I can't tell you how much I appreciate your input.
My RE thinks that my problem is with poor egg quality because my LH:FSH is slightly elevated. This results in less-than-robust eggs and a poor corpus luteum. I think my m/c have more to do with inadequate uterine lining, as my menses have always been light and short (plus I am underweight depite my best efforts). Maybe the two theories are both so related that you can't seperate them?
Well, the RE thinks that Clomid is needed to correct the problem, not just progesterone. He feels that, by inducing ovulation earlier in my cycle, the egg quality will be better. Both of my last pregnancies started to fail 6 days after my first BFP, although the gestational sac with my last one continued to grow when I went on progesterone. Thus I didn't m/c until 8 weeks. Hmmm... what if I had been on progesterone since ovulation??? Could that have made the difference?
Since my last m/c in October, I have attempted to move my O date up with weekly acupuncture. I have not yet seen a difference. I started Vitex last month and I know it may take more time to work. But I am sitting here on CD 33 with no sign of AF in sight. This, and the fact that I don't have all the time and the world to TTC #2 (DH wants to go back to school, DD is already 5, etc), is what is actually making me consider Clomid.... something that I never ever thought I would entertain. I tried to temp this month but you will see from my chart that it doesn't tell me much: http://www.fertilityfriend.com/home/1be3d6 I think the peaks you will see are inaccurate because I took my BBT two hours late on those days or I was sick.
|RE wants to start Clomid, which is an estrogen antagonist. This will not encourage a nice fertile endometrium, unless I'm missing something.|
