I quit

My luteal phase has been consistantly too short during the last 6 months of ttc. My MW finally got tired of my pestering and ordered a progesterone level. Today at 7 dpo my level was 1/3 of what it should be at 7 dpo. She said she wont give me progesterone suplements or clomid (which I would refuse anyway) until I weaned ds. She said it is not a good idea to take these while bf'ing. My a$$! Ugh!

Ds only nurses a couple times a day now and I refuse to give that up for a "possible child."

I've been praying for contentment, guess i'll have to step that up now.

Keep your head high, I'm sure your day will come. I don't like to put religious references in posts as I don't want to offend anyone, however, I do fully believe that GOD or whomever you may or may not believe in would not give you anything you can't handle. So there is a reason, be patient!!!

Re: I quit

I had the same progesterone problem (but wasnt bfing). Clomid helps boost your pre-o levels & make more mature eggs (which if they arent can cause low progesterone & m/c itself) & then I took prometrium after O to keep my progesterone levels high enough to sustain a pg. Its how I got & stayed pg with my youngest dd after 3 m/cs all low progesterone & luteal phase defect related.
