    Yes the GP can test your progesterone, mine was low and I was given clomid.

    the clomid will make sure the follicle is a good size and therefore the corpus luteum left behind will hopefully supply enough progesterone, however, you can also take prometrium vaginally (prescription progesterone). I'm taking clomid for low egg quality due to PCO and my doc has me on the prometrium as a preventative measure...to make sure I won't miscarry due to low progesterone if I actually do manage to get prego. I would definitely say get tested though.
