Until two months ago I was taking a pill that dissolves under my tongue for about six month to help with my progesterone "deficiency". I would take the pills morning and night and I felt immediate results. No more sleepless nights, no more hot flashes/night sweats and no more nut job before my cycle!
So I felt awesome, but we have been trying to conceive and we have not been able to do so. I have never had a regular cycle and I brought the topic up at my annual with my OBGYN. She advised me to discontinue the "progesterone" and she wanted to do blood work on the 23rd day of my cycle to see if I was ovulating. I did as she asked and my progesterone was so very low.
The way it was explained to me is that they were hoping my level was around a 10 and it was less than a 1. So she started me on Clomed with the onset of my menses. That was the beginning of this month and today is day 17 of my cycle. The Dr that prescribed me the " yam progesterone" would like me to start it again on day 18 to hold the embryo if the Clomed has worked!
I think my progesterone is low because of the drenching night sweats I'm having, but I'm not sure what to do? I have ordered the NATPRO, but my OBGYN has ordered another blood test on the 23rd Day of my cycle and she doesn't want me to take progesterone before the test. Any advice or has anyone gone down this road?
