I just got back from the RE a little bit ago. I have a delayed O (CD 21-23) and short LP (10 days). He seemed like he knew what he was talking about. He talked fast, but answered all of my questions. He did an ultrasound today and said everything looked good. My uterus looked good and I had eggs in there. Hubby is having a semen analysis on Monday.
Since I'm on CD 9 today, the RE wants us to continue trying this cycle as normal and me take the Prometrium that my OB prescribed me last cycle. Then, next cycle, I will call the office on CD 1 and let them know that I'm on CD 1. I will then have CD 3 bloodwork, take Clomid 50mg CD 3-7, a HSG between CD 5-12 (he didn't think it was necessary b/c I don't have any of the risk factors, but said if I wanted it done, that was fine), and go in on CD 12 for an ultrasound. I will also do the Ovidrel trigger shot. When I go in on CD 12 for the ultrasound they will tell me which day to do the trigger shot based on the results from the ultrasound. He said that I shouldn't need to do the Prometrium once I start the clomid and trigger shot. He said that with those, my body should produce enough Progesterone and I could do 7 DPO bloodwork to make sure. He said that his goal is for me to get pg within 3-4 months. If not, then he said that we could start IUI.
He said that while you can get pg with a delayed O like I have, he said that it's not ideal. He said that he thinks that the Clomid and trigger shot will help me have a stronger O which should increase the chances of getting pg and solve my two problems: delayed O (CD 21-23) and short LP.
Does this sound like he has me on the right track? Is this similar to what your RE has you doing??
I think Clomid and trigger is a great first step. I personally have no experience with Prometrium so can't comment on it. I hope it works for you! I did Clomid with IUI for 4 cycles and it didn't work for me but I have several friends who have done the same (without the IUI...just Clomid) and they were pregnant the 1st or 2nd month. Everyone is different. I hope it works for you the first time around!
