After 5 months of tracking my cycle with ovulation kits and the Clearblue fertility monitor (and I started temping this last month, which confirmed ovulation with temp shifts, etc) I have continued to have a short luteal phase (it started as 5-6 days, and has not increased and been holding steady at about 9 days for the past few months). This seems to short to me and I would just like to have my progesterone levels tested to make sure I dont have an issue.
Have any of you asked for this? Is there a certain day this test should be done after ovulation? I think I saw 7 days somewhere? I plan to bring my charts, etc to my appointment, but I wasnt sure if any of you had touble getting your doctor to let you have the labs done and if so, what you did to convince them. Im assuming my doctor wont give me a problem, but just in case I want to be prepared :) Thanks!!
