So I had a follow up RE appt today & guess what... I actually Oed last cycle (according to my progesterone (16.4))! Huh?!? Are you serious??? So as you can imagine... I'm thoroughly confused.
For those that don't already know, a quick recap (according to my OB successful O is when the progesterone is above 12)...
Unmedicated, progesterone on day 23 - 6.5.
50 mg Clomid, progesterone on day 22 - 13.5
50 mg Clomid, progesterone on day 24 - 4.6
100 mg Clomid, progesterone on day 23 - 17: Got pg but m/c-ed!
100 mg Clomid, progesterone on day 23 - 8.4
150 mg Clomid, progesterone on day 23 - 4.4
Unmedicated, progesterone on day 22 - 16.4 (I Oed late on CD 15 or early on CD 16 & we DTD on CD 12 so I could have gotten pg but we didn't... AF showed this past Saturday).
Oh & BTW, TSH is 0.03 & the RE said that he has never had any experience with Armour. Why do I have to go through this! Ugggghhhhh! Very few dr's know ANYTHING about Free T3... he didn't even test it... only tested TSH & FT4 (which was normal at 1.15) & like all the other specialists relies on TSH more so than anything. It's just such a hassle to say MY HAIR IS FALLING OUT WITHOUT THE ADDITIONAL T3! I just don't get it... I WISH I could take Synthroid ONLY & be fine but my hair falls out! I just HATE having to fight for proper treatment, ya know. I feel like I'm battling the dr's at times & I don't want to. I know you ladies understand.
Wow, that's crazy! Does your RE want your TSH to be between 1 and 2? It seems like a lot of them push for that.
I'm sorry that you are having such a hard time finding doctors who know what they are doing! I guess I am lucky because both of the endo's I've been to, as well as both of the perinatologists I've been to with this pregnancy and my last one (I switched docs because I moved) seem to know what they are doing and don't stress over the TSH. Maybe you should move to Maryland

Woohhoo for Oing on your own. Your progesterone was higher w/o the Clomid. I HIGHLY suggest trying Femara. You're not really suppose to be on the Clomid more than 4-6 cycles. Femara doesn't have an accumulative effect. I got pg on it. Also, I don't remember if you are supplementing with progesterone or not. My # was 18 and they had me go on it. They want to see it higher than 20 for pg.
I wish you'd move to GA.
