Not conceiving, not implanting

by Cynthia
(Santa Clarita, CA)

My husband and I have been trying to conceive for about a year now. I have had at least six months (not consecutive) that I will spot several days after ovulation, will pass a gray, blood tinged clot, and 10 days later start my period. I have two children and know what my body feels like pregnant. With the spotting, I am also greatly fatigued, taking several naps a day (highly unusual), and slight loss of appetite. I have discussed this with my PCP and she says there is nothing she can do. She referred me to a reproductive specialist. Through much research, my symptoms lead me to believe it is a progesterone deficiency. Is there something I can take without a prescription?

Hi Cynthia. It does appear you have a progesterone deficiency. The best forms of progesterone are injections, suppositories/pessaries or creams. The cream is the most versatile, and doesn't need a prescription. Please see this web page. Take care, Wray.
