Misdiagnosed for 12 years as PCOS
I was misdiagnosed for 12 years as having PCOS. I am not in fact PCO. I never had high LH or FSH levels nor have I ever had any cysts on my ovaries. Recently my glucose and insulin were checked and are in great standing, in fact at the low end of normal. I have had now 5 miscarriages in 6 1 /2 years. I am never able to make to being able to test positive. I start to miscarry before I miss my period. I do have a healthy 3 year old, so after having him, I can see all the other times that I was in fact pregnant. The most recent came just last week. I have been charting my cycles for 3 months now. January I was most likely pregnant however after 5 days of sustained high temps, with 7 DPO spotting, by 10DPO my temps dropped and I started bleeding. February I did not ovulate, at least nothing sustaining, and March I did, and I knew I was pregnant, however by 10dpo I started bleeding. I had trouble with spotting for 2 years after my son was born. I was told I was PCO for 12 years because of hirstutism. I started taking Evening Primrose Oil last summer,( I had another MC on June 13, 2012)I was taking as much as 1300mg a day. Because of taking the EPO my hirstutism EXPLODED chest, midline, neck, face. I just found a new OB and he told me EPO can reduce progesterone levels. I had been instructed by a Natropath to take the EPO.
I started to take 200mg of Progesterone (Prometrium) on CD 20, I ovulated on CD 17. I think my levels are too low and need a good jump start. What would be a good dose? My OB wants to check my adrenals. I go next Wednesday for a 17-hydroxyprogesterone fasting blood test. What are your thoughts?
