This is such a pain in the butt. I was put on progesterone (100mg 2X per day, which is a lot) starting from ovulation. The perinatologist seems to think low progesterone caused my 2nd loss. So I started testing at around 10DPO (because the suppositories are expensive and I don't want to use them if I'm not pg) and now it is 13DP and still BFN. I had spotting yesterday. I was hoping it was implantation bleeding, but if it was I think I should have gotten a positive test this morning. Spotting is gone now.....will test again in the AM if AF doesn't show. My luteal phase is usually 11-12 days so it may just be that the progesterone is making me more normal. Do you think it is safe to stop using it? If I keep using it will AF ever come? I got OPK+ on CD14 and assume I o'ed on CD15, but I guess it could have been on DC16, which would only put me at 12 DPO, but either way if I was pg I should have a BFP by now shouldn't I? And if I'm not AF should come by tomorrow...... I guess I'll use one more suppository tonight, test in the AM and then stop the progesterone and wait for AF. Does that sound like a good plan? I'm so confused.

Sorry for the rambling above. I should have done my homework before posting. I have found that the normal tx for luteal phase defect is progesterone from o to 14DPO. So I'll stop after tonight unless I get a BFP in the AM.....unlikely.

Sounds like you have a good plan. I've been on progesterone for my luteal phase which tends to be as short as 9 days. I found that AF does not tend to show on its own while I'm on it. Once I quit using it, AF usually shows within about 2 days. I know this can vary in that some people do have af show up through the progesterone use. The last cycle I was on I gave it a day or 2 longer before I stopped the prometrium just in case ovulation happened to be later than I thought.

Thanks for letting me know. BFN agian so I've stopped the progesterone and just waiting for AF. I hope she shows tomorrow. I'm ready to start a new cycle. It was dumb of me not to realize it would take a couple days after stopping. After all that's the whole concept of birth control pills.

Thanks again!

You're not dumb Erica, the same thing happened to me the first time I used progesterone too. No one told me it would delay AF...and it gave me major pg symptoms too (nausea, sore breasts) so I was doubly mad and felt so betrayed when I got that darn BFN. I am sorry this month didn't work out for you. I hope Af comes quickly so you can move on to starting a new cycle and getting one step closer to having that baby you deserve!!!!!

Glad to hear that af showed so you could start a new cycle! I agree with Norina, you're not dumb.. Everyone's body is different, so it varies as to when af shows up in relation to taking/stopping the progesterone.

Best of luck on this next cycle!
