    Default Short LP, what can my GP do??

    Do I have been doing OPK's for the 4 cycles and my every month my LP is under 10 days. I have an appointment with a FS in mid March but am seeing my GP who is also an OP next week, I've had my 21 day progesterone test already but is there anything else she can do??

    Refer to an ob who can prescribe clomid. Worth a shot if you want to before March?

    My gp prescribed clomid only after my fs/ob did so first...

    Eta- did you mean OB not OP? If so- clomid!!

    Yes, I want before March and Yes I need to proof read my quotes she's an OB.

    Thanks I will ask her about clomid, from the reading I have done I think that's what the FS will advise anyway.

    That's what finally got me my take home babies! If you have a lutal phase defect it is the usual course of treatment.

    What was the outcome of the 21 day progesterone test?

    It was 25. So borderline I think, I haven't talked to the Dr about it yet. I just know that it was flagged as abnormal and sent onto the FS.

    Just tell her you have been doing lots of research and want to try clomid asap. If you are certain you have lpd I'd go with that and not waste time. The process can be so heartbreaking, I know. I had 5 miscarriages in a row and stopped letting them write them off as 'normal'! And then after my DD (clomid baby) i had another mc when I fell pregnant again naturally This current baby (39 wks) is another clomid baby. I have learnt my lesson, that's for sure.

    Hope it is a quick and easy process for you x

    congrats on the almost newborn and thanks.

    I can conceive I have 2 amazing boys but I want more and it seems to get harder each time. DS1 took a year with a chem in there, DS2 took 2 years with a chem (5weeks) and a m/c (6weeks) then this time we are on almost a year and another chem and another m/c at 6 weeks and I had to really push to get any further testing.

    Definitely push. I got so sick of people telling me that many miscarriages were normal. I don't find it hard to fall pregnant, but without clomid my babies don't stay

    Going to have two girls though, stoked! And done
