Is midcycle bleeding caused by progesterone cream?
Hi. I have been trying to fall pregnant through home-insemination. We have been to fertility clinics and had tests done on everything so we know that everything is working - except that a I had to take a triple amount of clomid (hormone to bring on ovulation) these procedures were not succeful in pregnancy and cost a lot of money each time. So my wife and I have a sperm donar who we contact each month during ovulation where we do a home-insemination. I was told about the progesterone journey by a friend and started using Natpro cream about 3 months ago, applying it every morning and every evening. Around day 10 of my cycle until my period starts. We then do the insemination for 3 days (once a day) on day 12-14. For the last 2 months I have had "break through" bleeding - like a full period but 5/6 days after ovulation, so it is very early. This happen while still applying the cream. And then I stop the cream once the full period starts. This doesn't give much time of using the progesterone cream and obviously not resulting in pregnancy. Also, when does ovulation happen if for the last 2 months I have had 18 day cycles. In the past my cycles were always around 31 days.
Please give some advice on how to go forward. And is my next ovulation still on day 12-14 after this very early period?
