Re: Help - TTC, misscarrying and low progesterone

My best friend had low progesterone and a lutal phase defect. She kept pretty intense charting of her cycles and temperatures, and that's how she figured it out.

Anyway, she had a series of miscarriages due to low progesterone and the lutal phase defect. She got a BFP in August and her doctor REFUSED to put her on progesterone! She even showed her charts for the past year, including the miscarriages. She found a new doctor who perscribed her progesterone. She held this pregnancy.

She took Vitex to help with progesterone levels naturally. You may want to do some research on it. If you are TTC it also helps to be on a good pre-natal vitamin and fish oil (or some other with omega-3 fatty acids in it). Also, B6 helps, as do green leafy veggies.

I would say to check out the Taking Charge of Your Fertility book or website if you haven't yet and start charting-- you may have a lutal phase defect. Charting and temping will help you pinpoint where the problem may be, and the solution may be as simple as progesterone cream or supplement.

You are not alone!
