Question on when to start progesterone when trying to get pregnant with luteal phase defect
My husband and I have just begun trying to conceive, but I have been tracking my cycles for years and have discovered that I have a luteal phase defect and low progesterone. I read that you should start taking the progesterone in the 50 hours prior to ovulation, but wanted some clarity on that.
I usually use LH test strips to determine when I'm ovulating. I typically get 1 or 2 "high" strips before my peak. Should I start the progesterone when I first see the "high" days or when I see my peak day? I usually ovulate quite quickly after my peak day. How much should I take before ovulation? 200/mg?
Since I have a short luteal phase (longest has been 11 days, but normally 8-9), should I bump up to 300/mg a day? Or stay at 200mg?
Thanks so much in advance! So glad I found this resource!
