7 DPO test results — The Bump

7 DPO test results

And they weren't good.  She said she likes to see at least a 12 for progesterone and mine was a 6.9.  I'm glad we caught it so soon and hopefully the progesterone supplements will help.  If anyone has used them, did you have any bad side effects?  I'll be taking them from O until 14 DPO, I think.  Unless of course I get a positive test.

I charted when TTC my son nine years ago as well and I had textbook cycles with 13-14 day LPs every time and no spotting.  Just feeling a little old and "defective" tonight...

Re: 7 DPO test results

  • I take them, and even though I react poorly to hormones, I do pretty well with the progesterone. But I take them vaginally. What will you be taking? I use Prometrium, which is an oral pill that can cause SE orally, but is pretty benign when taken vaginally.

    The best treatment for luteal phase problems and low progesterone though is Clomid. Stronger ovulation = stronger progesterone levels.  If your ovulation is not "strong" enough, taking all the progesterone supplements in the world won't help. Did you have any other testing done?

  • With all those discarded temps, I would question the accuracy of the timing.

    Either way, I take progesterone suppositories and other than some hot flashes the first month, I don't have any side effects besides leakage from the suppository.

  • Thanks Kelly, no other testing yet.  We haven't been trying long yet, but I'm getting "old" and there was obviously an LP problem.  We'll just see how the progesterone goes for awhile.

    Shayliz, FF discarded my temps because of a fever for a week, but once I was well my temp dropped back down, I had the darkest positive OPK I've ever seen , with EWCM and a temp jump on CD 18.  Pretty sure I O'd that day.

    This. I had this conversation with my OB on Friday. He wants me to come in to get my progesterone tested and I asked what we would do if it was low, thinking he's suggest progesterone supplements, and he said Clomid because if you're not having strong ovualtion that is normally why you have low progesterone. It does make sense when he explained it that way.
