@tjuls I saw the specialist recently and the answer was no. Now just waiting for iui #2 which is soon. Sighs maybe the only way to get prog is to do ivf..
Lmao 🙈.. I'm so sorry I've confused everyone!! @hopefulangel1987 @Giraffez
I guess what I'm saying is.. I'm a nut case haha
After 3 failed transfers with perfectly good embryos, I couldn't rely on the fs to tell me what's wrong with me anymore.
So I felt I needed to be proactive and eliminate the problems I knew I had control over.. I suspected my prog wasnt high enough when my BBT would start to dip at 8dpo.
I'm not saying that upping the prog dose WILL give u ur bfp. But if it IS the problem, like it was for me, then it will definitely help.
Thanks @tjuls im a bit concern now that the topic is about progesterone. This is my 1st beta and the normal prog level is 30 mine is 34. Nothing to worry but its should be a bit more higher so instead of 3 oripro dose will be 4 daily to support more.. thats my understanding.
Anyone heard of progesterone cream? I think iherb sells them
Congrats @smilebabynumberone! That's awesome - 470 is a brilliant number! Congrats!
I think everyone's dose can be quite different. I was on one dose of Crinone a day (80mg) until i switched over to Oripro (which was also once a day, but each dose was 200mg) about 2 weeks after beta. I know I am in the minority on a one-a-day dose for Crinone though - most people have two a day.
Don't panic just yet @smilebabynumberone - no harm asking to see if you can get more but remember that your body will also naturally start producing more progesterone now too. When I did a sneaky BT a week after my beta through my GP, my GP didn't even tell me the Prog level. She said it is not default that it is measured in the BT, and apparently the referral form that Primary gave had to ask for it specifically. My GP wasn't concerned at all despite my IVF history (either that or she wasn't listening ). By the time I went to the OB, he was unfazed and asked me to stop as instructed, no extra prescription again.
I don't have experience with the prog cream to share too @Giraffez. Sorry hun!
