Thanks Wish. Unfortunately- I got a phone call from the nurse today saying that my 21day progesterone results were the lowest they've ever been since starting clomid. They were UNDER 1!!! I'm so pissed off. Why would an increase of clomid make my results WORSE!? Ugh, She said to call up in two weeks if period doesn't start so I can get provera, and that we'll do one more round of clomid at the same dose. I don't really understand- if it's not working, why do I have to do another round of it? I really wish they'd do a monitored cycle with it to see if it's just the whole ovulation thing that's an issue and not an egg issue. I KNOW clomid is stimulating my ovaries because I'm very sensitive the whole week leading up to ovulation, I'm thinking it's just not surging enough to make me O. I'm just so frustrated I don't even know what to do anymore.

Darling so sorry about your progesterone being low and not Oing on the higher dose of clomid! That's so frustrating. Is this your clomid 4th cycle? I would probably push for monitoring and a trigger shot, so that they can be sure you will O.

It's actually my 5th round! and yeah that's exactly what I am thinking except does an OBGYN office do trigger shots or is that an RE thing?

Sorry no O, Darling. My obgyn did monitored clomid cycles and trigger shot. If I were you I would ask to have the dose increased and to be monitored. Clomid is pretty brutal for me...insane hot flashes and night sweats and out of control mood swings...there's no way I would take it if there wasn't some benefit! This is my 6th and last cycle on it. Next month we will begin the IVF process.

Darling I see something! I hope it darkens. Do you know what dpo you are?

How's everyone else doing? AF got me yesterday and is being a real bitch. I heard that in some countries they give women an extra sick day each month...man I sure could use one of those for yesterday or even today. I start the estrogen priming for my IVF cycle in 3 weeks, stimulation in 4 weeks! Praying so hard this works.

Wishing you loads of luck wish!!

Took a third test this morning, frer and there's definitely a faint line on that one too. But if it's faint on frer im assuming I've caught it extremely early. Called my office and because of low progesterone this month they are going to see me now today for hcg panel progesterone panel and probably progesterone to support

I guess I finally found out the cause of my infertility. I have abnormal chromosomes. 10% of my blood cells tested showed a missing X chromosome (45X instead of 46XX). My doctor thinks this is the cause of my recurrent early miscarriages. Part of me is relieved to have an answer but the other part is terrified that we will have to undergo multiple IVF cycles just to find one normal embryo. DH has a small chromosomal issue too but she didn't think that was the cause of our difficulties. We are meeting with a geneticist next.

Good luck darling! I have my fx for you that this is it!

Ask I'm so sorry to hear about your chromosomal problem. I can see how you would be both relieved and scared. Good that you've already gotten the IVF ball rolling. The chromosomal screening technology is pretty impressive, as are low the miscarriage rates. Where are you in the process now? Will we be IVF cycle buddies?!
