Hello everyone. I'm hoping you'll take a look at my chart and share your thoughts on what might be going on. https://www.fertilityfriend.com/home/47f28e Here are the basics of what I'm experiencing: - I'm on day 44 of my cycle (I have irregular cycles since an early miscarriage early this year). - I'm currently 21 dpo. - I had what I took to be implantation bleeding on 10-11 DPO. - My BBT has remained elevated for well after 18 days (what I keep hearing signifies likely pregnancy). - I'm getting BFNs, although on two prior days I got what looked like extremely faint BFPs (within 3 minutes of testing, or I would have assumed they were evap lines). - I'm on my 1st Clomid cycle (50 mg). - I'm on Metformin (1000 mg daily through most of the cycle, recently increased to 1500 mg daily). - I privately ordered a progesterone test and had blood drawn for it 8 dpo (the earliest I could have it scheduled). It came back extremely low -- less than 1. I know that generally means you didn't ovulate. But my doctor seemed confident that I did based on the ovulation pain, positive OPK, and BBT rise all coinciding perfectly. My doc wouldn't order this test, but I suspected progesterone played a role in my miscarriage and a possible chemical this year, so I had it done myself. But I don't know how accurate it was -- not familiar with the lab, the day was slightly off-plan, and there's always a chance ovulation happened at a different time than I thought. - To be safe, I started progesterone cream (Emerita Pro-gest) the day after ovulation. I know this can elevate temps, but I was told the cream wasn't strong enough to have much of an effect. My temperature shot up on its own though -- I didn't start the cream until the evening after the temperature elevated. - The last three progesterone (P) mentions were suppositories my doctor finally prescribed. I stopped after two, figuring I'd try to let my period come. Then the next day I got two very faint lines that looked like positive results. So I went back on progesterone for a day to be safe. I stopped again the next day because I saw some more spotting and figured AF was coming. - I woke up yesterday with bleeding between spotting and a light flow. But it only lasted for two trips to the bathroom. Then there was absolutely nothing again. - My temperatures shot up again over the last few days, to my highest temps all month. I know progesterone can do that. But how long does it stay in your system? The two highest days were days that I didn't take progesterone suppositories on the evening before. (My last day on the progesterone, I took it in the morning, so a good 24 hours had passed.) - Symptoms come and go, but the biggest have been nausea, dizziness, and extreme tiredness (I never nap, but recently I seem to take 1-2 naps a day at least a few times per week, and I sleep in much more or I feel miserable all day). I'm getting extremely confused. On paper it seems to say I should be getting a solid BFP or AF by now. I don't personally believe I'm pregnant, as much as I'd like to be. My doctor went from being very optimistic to dismissing any chance. She thought I would have gotten my period about a week ago though. No high stress right now that could be affecting things. It's actually been less stressful for a few weeks around here. I'm not even confident I ovulated on the Clomid (and I'm not taking it because I have problems ovulating -- I generally ovulate just fine on my own -- she prescribed that plus metformin to help improve egg quality just as a precaution against another early miscarriage -- which did occur after high stress). Has anyone had a cycle like this before? How did it turn out? Any thoughts on what might be going on with me this month? Oh, and my doc won't give me a blood test. She was going to, but then insisted on a urine test in her office first. Since that came back negative, she won't do a blood test, and we really can't afford to be running any more private lab tests. She wants to wait until there's a dark positive urine test first or I get AF. While I disagree with her on this one, I don't want to change docs over it. I do really like her, and trust her. I appreciate any insights!
