I really think that the doctor will help you on this. Write down (and bring with you) your last 3-6 months worth of cycles. First day of AF, day of O and day of next AF. I went I with 3 or so months worth of this info written out so it was clear cut for the doctor that it was a luteal phase defect since each luteal phase was 8-9ish days long. She didn't even do testing immediately. She started me on progesterone suppositories immediately and then from there drew blood to check my progesterone levels once I got a positive preg test. Good luck!!!

Re: 2WW - October & November

I had a copper iud taken out over a year ago, maybe they do mess with your body more than they say. I used it because I thought it would mess with stuff less. No more birth control for me until I manage to have a couple more kids, I don't want to waste any more years!

I had copper toxicity from paraguard with a whole slew of issues. All of them were resolved after it was removed except now I have a LPD (I'm pretty sure)

I got pregnant 3 times with no issues and the rest I needed prometrium. I think it was cause I lost so much weight tho. My RE gave me my perscrip after 6 months of charting and I just knew.

That should be fine. I used one almost exactly the same.

Feeling good today other than a raging headache! Blech to that. Only 4dpo. 4 dpo is lame. Lol. I know I will prolly get af this month just like the last 18 months but I just keep reminding myself "He Can!" God might not bless us with more but there is always joy and hope knowing "He can"! No amount of stupid sperm or any other fertility issues are so big that they can render God defeated. Nope. God is bigger than all that and HE CAN. So- it's all good.
YES!! Such a sweet dream. I often dream about giving birth and sweet snuggley newborns. Hopefully soon!

I did try clomid last cycle just to see what it would do. I ovulated one day early and no symptoms. yay! I do have post O symptoms of being pregnant tho even tho there is no way its possible. LOL. at least I know when I take it again!

Congrats on all the new BFP's and wishing you many many more

Glad you are taking a stand and doing what is best for you! I hope you have a sweet baby in your arms soon.

I had no problems with my first two, but for the past year I've had short luetal phases. I went to my general practitioner and they fought me on it saying that a 9/10 day phase was fine. I ended up switching providers to a RE and he ran blood tests (CD3 and CD21). My progesterone on CD21 was under 5 - it should be over 10 even to show ovulation, except I was ovulating because I kept having chemical pregnancies. He put me on vaginal progesterone suppositories and the issue has been resolved. I have had a 14/15 luteal phase for the last two cycles. Sometimes it just takes a little effort to find someone who will help you. It shouldn't be that hard......
