Using progesterone cream to stimulate ovulation
(Gisborne, New Zealand)
Hi there Wray, I have just received my tube of Natpro and now I would like some help as to when I should use it. I have researched your website which is very helpful and I apologise if I am asking something which I have missed from your site.
I have PCO and we are TTC baby number 2. I do not have the classic symptoms of PCOS such as excess weight or excess hair but my ovaries are very cystic and my cycle is around 40 days (sometimes a few less, sometimes more). I am convinced that I am not ovulating during my cycles. I have been charting my cervix position and mucus and have had no symptoms to suggest ovulation since my fist baby was born.
As your site suggests 14 days before ovulation but I do not ovulate, I am unsure when I should start the cream. I have just stopped bleeding from my period (day 8). First baby was conceived without fertility treatment although took a long time and I was having regular acupuncture and I did ovulate (once) which was when baby was conceived. I am having acupuncture again but it is expensive and I would like to see if progesterone will help me as well. I suffer from tiredness, mood swings, loss of sex drive and need to eat regularly to keep my blood sugar levels balanced.
My doctor has suggested a course of Clomid, which I have not started yet. Can I/should I use the cream with this? So with this information could you tell me when I should use Natpro. With kind thanks.
