Hi ladies, unfortunately I've had 3 possible 4 very early miscarriages/chemicals this year. I have pcos rondo and thyroid antibodies. I've been on clomid for 5 cycles, thyroxine, metformin and had a lap and ovarian drilling this cycle. My fs gave me a script for progesterone to take after ovulation I didn't bother this cycle due to just having had the lap so I wasn't expecting anything this month. However I've just had a super super faint bfp at 9 dpo, af is due Tuesday at 11 dpo (add short luteal phase to the list of issues).
Is it too late for me to start the progesterone now? How quickly does it start working?

Not too late at all. I didn't start until about 16dpo, I think it works straight away. Good luck with the pregnancy hope it's a sticky one.

Thanks ladies, @gingermillie that's reassuring.
@Patience86 I have actually been following your story a little bit (stalking lol) we were in the same due in group when I had my dd and you had your ds. We seemed to have chemicals at the same time too. I see that you are pregnant again now and it's going well so it gives me a lot of hope!

Yes I thought I recognised you! Thank you for reading my diary I know how frustrating chemicals can be and I really hope this is it for you. It is my understanding that progesterone works fairly quickly. Hopefully we will be in the same DIG again

Bfp was a fair bit darker this afternoon so I have everything crossed!

Progesterone is a bit like insurance, in that generally you shouldn't actually needed. I'm like a broken record on this point, but HCG causes Progesterone to rise, not the other way around so if you've got a strong little embryo your progesterone will go up on its own. The extra is just an insurance policy. Good luck.

That's exactly what my FS said @ScubaGal, she has been hesitant to give it to me before now but we are trying to cover all bases and give it everything we have at the moment to try and stop these chemicals.
