Progesterone question - When did AF arrive?

For those of you who have taken progesterone during the 2ww, how long has it taken for AF to arrive after you stopped taking it?  I stopped taking prometrium on Thursday and am getting a little annoyed with AF.  Even Vodoo Tampon hasn't helped. 

This is my second time on progesterone (used endometrin the first time and this time I also took estrace with the prometrium).  Last time, AF arrived the day after I stopped the progesterone. 

DH is out of state for work and this is really messing with his ability to be home for O and a possible IUI.  Ugh.  Come on 2012, you're supposed to be so much better than 2011 and this isn't a great start.

Me: 30 DH: 32 Married: 8yrs

Me: Mild DOR and LPD, AMH: .67 AFC: 8 ~ DH: Normal SA

Off BCP: 12/10 BFP: 6/1/11 M/c at 5w1d: 6/10/11

10/11 - 12/11: 1 TI + Endometrin & 2 TI + Clomid = BFN

1/12 - 3/12: IUI#1-3 with 2.5mg Femara + Ovidrel + Estrace + Prometrium = BFN

4/12: IUI#4 with 5mg Femara + Menopur + Ovidrel + Estrace + Prometrium = BFN

5/1/12: Operative hysteroscopy to remove polyp

5/12: TI + Prometrium + European Vacation = BFN

6/12: IUI#5 with 5mg Femara + Menopur + Ovidrel + Estrace + Prometrium = BFN

8/12: IVF#1 with ICSI ~ 8/16/12: ER, 4R,3M,2F ~ 8/19/12: 3dt of 7 cell and 4 cell = BFP!!!

Beta#1 9/1/12 = 88.7 Beta#2 9/4/12 = 454 Beta#3 9/6/12 = 1159

9/8/12: U/s @ 5w2d one perfect gestational sac with a yolk sac starting to grow!

EDD: 5/9/13 We're over the moon!! Stick baby stick!!

Re: Progesterone question - When did AF arrive?

  • I think it depends. I always got mine while still on prometrium, but I have trouble maintaining p4. Give it a few days and if you don't get it, call your RE. Good luck!!

  • It may be the estrace delaying it. I take 2 days of estrace at the end of my 2ww to combat my hormonal migraines and was told it could mess with af. Def call if you don't get it tomorrow.

    I wondered whether the estrace could be part of the problem.  I stopped taking it when I stopped the prometrium.  Is there anything they can do?

    Honestly I'm not sure. I usually stop my prometrium after the night of 13 dpo if 14dpo test is neg and then start spotting the next day.
