    You're welcome. If you do have a progesterone problem and it's that simple then it's really not hard to fix, so I'd say not to be too worried about it. I think sometimes low progsterone can be indicative of other things though like egg quality issues or PCOS but if your FS is testing you which I'm sure they are.. they have probably ruled out those things already. Progesterone supplements are a pain in the neck but it honestly could be a really quick fix to get a BFP

    I'm not sure though if maybe she ordered the test a bit early? Wouldn't low progesterone mean that my temp wouldn't really rise after o and that I would have a short lp? Mine is 12-13 days

    Well, in my experience usually they do progesterone tests 7 days after ovulation not 3, but given she's an FS I'm sure she knows what she's doing? Your temp spikes directly after you ovulate BECAUSE of the rising levels of progesterone so I would have thought they should be more than 7 even three days later. My gyno always told me it needed to be 15 to indicate a proper ovulation, and by 7 dpo it should be around 30 ideally or even more. You might get a temp rise after ovulation even if you do have low progesterone because it has elevated more than a baseline progesterone level (like when you haven't ovulated yet and progesterone is at its lowest) and thus will cause a spike even though your prog levels arent that great. I did think that people with low progesterone tended to have short lps though yes, I think 12 days is on the short side but it's not too bad. A friend of mine though tested and had v. low progesterone, even though she got temp spikes AND had a perfectly fine LP .. so it can happen.

    DEFINITELY not supposed to be this hard

    In one way though, it's good they're finding things that can be fixed. It's also really frustrating when you're tested for everything under the sun and nothing's wrong and you're still not getting pregnant! At least if they're finding a few things with you and your DH you have good reason to think that going forward with the right treatment you will get a BFP

    PS Nattie - you're definitely seeing an FS not just an OBGYN yeah? I only ask because I made the mistake of going to an OBGYN who was not a fertility specialist and wasted 8 months when his advice and treatment was wrong and not helping!

    This would be me atm...

    However - U/s today showed:

    Endometrial lining = 10mm
    Dominant follie on right = 17.3mm

    Which I think are both good? So, they can't find anything wrong and so she basically seemed to think that all 4 miscarriages have just been "bad luck" and to keep on trying...

    That really sucks Catkin. It's not fair that one person would have that much bad luck...

    Nattie, not sure about the progesterone levels...

    Livvy, hoping you are doing well.

    Hi everyone else!!!

    AFM... WELL!!! exciting news! DP has agreed to TTC when I move in with him!!! That will hopefully only be about 2 months away, so I can really try lose some weight, get healthy, get his sex drive happening again, and get some money saved. I'm so freaking excited!!!

    I have put on 400g since I last weighed myself about a month ago. Not bad considering how much junk I eat when at DP's. So, I have told him we are eating healthy, and he can have his junky snacks while I eat my apples...
