PCOS,Had IUI & was placed on rx progesterone..
I am 37, have been trying to conceive for about 3 1/2-4yrs. Found out about 2 yrs ago that I have pcos. Recently had a second IUI(artifical insemination) after taking letrazol(femara) to stimulate my ovaries. My RE/Fertility specialist put me on Crinone 8% (rx progesterone suppositories) 2 days after the insemination. Instructions were to take 1 in the morning for 2 wks..then test for pregnancy. It was two weeks this past fri. Got a negative result. Still haven't started my peroid. My doc told me to discontinue the progesterone and test again on tuesday. I guess my question is, shouldn't she be keeping me on the progesterone until my peroid? I mean what if by chance I am pregnant? I would think suddenly stopping the high dosage of the proges. would be bad? This is the first time I have taken the prescription. My acupuncturist placed me on progest natural creme to use at night. I have been using this for about a year but stopped when I started the rx. Now I don't know what to do. Should I start back on the progest again? I really feel like I need to be on a higher dosage consistantly.
