Not producing progesterone!

by Lisa

I'm 28 years old and I have a 4 year old son. Me and my partner are trying for baby number 2 for nearly 6 months now but sadly no success. I had the merina coil in before hand for about 9 months and before that I had the pill injection which I was on for about a year.

I've had blood tests done on day 21 after first day of period and it's says i'm not ovulating and i'm not producing any progestrone... they want to start me on fertility treatment now. i've being doing some re-search to understand what's wrong with me. I've even used clomid to try help but nothing.... and it's rare a bleed and very rare I have a full period, i've read that vitamin B6 can help?? which hopefully i'll find out soon as i've orded some today..... need help with what else i can use and do to help me making a baby?

Would this progesterone cream that everyone talks on here about work on me??? Many thanx.

Hi Lisa All Contraceptives can upset our cycle, it seems it has yours. See here for more info on the Mirena. And here and here for the injection. Anovulation is often caused by oxidative stress. This in turn is more often than not caused by a lack of vitamin D. As you live in the UK, please have a test done. The lack of sun means you are not making enough in your skin. For more info please see the Vitamin D council and GrassrootsHealth websites. Progesterone is an essential too, it's only made once we ovulate, so you're ovaries are not making any. It could be you have PCOS. Please read through this page as it explains anovulation and what to do about it. It also shows you when to use progesterone if you don't have a cycle to follow. We also have a page on Pregnancy too, which explains how to use progesterone to help. Take care Wray
