I know google can be a woman TTC's worst enemy but I have been googling trying to figure out what might possibly be wrong & I'm almost positive it's low progesterone. Here is a list of symptoms I found & I bolded all that I have

  • Infertility
  • Thyroid dysfunction
  • Depression
  • Irritability and anxiety
  • Fibrocystic breasts
  • Gallbladder disease
  • Low Blood Sugar
  • Panic attacks
  • Water retention
  • Irregular menstrual cycle[My cycles bounce from 28-33 days]
  • Blood clots during menstruation
  • Magnesium deficiency
  • Vaginal dryness
  • Breast tenderness[EVERY month I swear I'm pregnant because my boobs start to hurt so bad]
  • Painful Intercourse[Usually around ovulation it hurts, like my cervix is bruised or something]
  • Headaches linked to menstrual cycle
  • Bladder infection
  • Night sweats
  • Sleeping problems [My problem is I ALWAYS want to sleep!]
  • Weight gain (unexplained) [I haven't changed how I eat but I swear I've gone up a size in the last few months]
  • Memory loss[Johnny will tell me on the phone to grab something from the store WHILE I'M AT THE STORE & I'll forget!]
  • Reduced libido [I swear I wouldn't TOUCH DH if I didn't want another baby so bad]
I am calling my doctor in the morning and making me an appointment. We told him we would wait 6 months after our miscarriage before we came back & the 6 months mark is coming up quickly. Has anyone had this problem?

I'm sorry but I'll be no help here. I hope your Dr can point you in the right direction!

I also have low progesterone, and never knew there were side effects from it but I do have some of them. Let us know what you find out, I am interested in knowing what your doctor says.

no meds, he said he wont put me on clomid or anything because i am gettin + opks so hes sure im ovulation something just is causing the sperm & egg to meet. SOOO....he wants me to keep up with the OPK's. BDing every other day til I get a positive & have sex every day til it turns negative. If I haven't gotten a + by cd 21 he wants me to come back & get my progesterone checked. He also wants DH to go in and have a sperm analysis done. If my progesterone is fne & DH's sperm is ok he wants me to have a Laparoscopy? He said that my chances of having endometriosis is up due to my uterine anomoly. not to mention sex being so painful during ovulation could be a sign of endometriosis. so next step is DH getting a SA, I'll be calling his doctor either tomorrow or friday.

It's a start right? My husband also had a SA and the results were normal, I have never shown a + on the OPK and my progesterone levels are practically non-existent along with my LH. Right now I am waiting for AF to come so I can schedule a hysterosalpingogram and if everthing is "normal" then she is starting me on Clomid. I hope everything works out! I will keep you in my thoughts!

thanks

i had an HSG done back in Feb-Mar. When I had my c-section with my son they noticed the right side of my uterus was hard & didnt form right when my mom was pregnant with me. So they did the HSG & yup, sure enough, my right tube is totally not functional & my left tube was blocked, they got it cleared. I got pregnant on my 3rd cycle after my HSG (lost the baby at 5 weeks, but it DOES show me it IS possible!) I'll def share my baby dust with you
