Well, I'm pretty sure I'm out this cycle. My temp took a huge nose dive this morning. This cycle, I took 100mg of Clomid, IUI, and 200mg of Prometrium during my LP. If AF shows today, that would mean my LP was only 11 days. How is that possible with the Clomid and Prometrium?!?!?! I am so frustrated that my LP will never be long enough.

I've done Clomid and Prometrium for many cycles now. This was my first cycle that I took 100mg (the other cycles were just 50mg) and it was my first cycle with a RE (all the other Clomid cycles were with my OB/GYN). I'm sure I'll probably do another cycle or two the same way as this cycle, but what's next if Clomid, Prometrium and IUI doesn't work?

maybe you need more prometrium? I dont know my doctor started me right off the bat on 400mg of prometrium a day. It made my luteal phase 17 days when it used to be 11 days.

Aww I hope she does not show. Have you considered Femera or Femera/injectables combo since Clomid is known to really thing the uterine lining?

Thanks, ladies. I pray AF stays away, but I know she's about to start knocking at the door because I'm cramping and having lower back pain, just like every month she comes around.

I don't know anything about Femera or Injectables. I'll just have to see what my doctor says as far as what to try next. I know she mentioned that there were other drugs I could try. I'm really scared about moving onto injectables, not because of having to give myself a shot, but I know it can be costly and I have no idea how much a cycle with injectables would cost.

Heather, how long was your LP originally before starting the 400mg of Prometrium. I've always taken just 200mg of Prometrium and my LP usually ranges from 10-13 days depending on if I take Clomid that cycle too, or not. Do you take it all at once, or 200mg in the morning and 200mg at night? Do you have side affects? Sorry, lots of questions.

I always thought the only next step after Clomid was injectables? Anyway-that will probably be what I'm doing in one or two more cycles.

The other thing is....what is your condition? If it's pcos like me-my doctor has suggested ovarian drilling (sounds pleasant doesn't it?). If you do have pcos-it may be worth it to explore that option...

The only thing that's has been found wrong with me is that I have a luteal phase defect and a low egg count because my ovaries are small (according to my RE). I know LPD is suppose to be easily fixed, but for over a year now OB/GYN couldn't fix it and now a RE is working on it. My RE seems to think something else is going on, but all the tests I've had so far have all come back normal.

it was 10-11 days but most commonly 11 days naturally. 200mg in the morning and 200mg at night vaginally.

Not many side effects just tender breasts (not even near as bad as without prometrium though),increased appetite,increased discharge,fatigue,dizziness for one day & holy freaking increased sex drive. It also made my mood so much better and I was so so happy all the time. my fiance loved it because he said I was really nice on it and it made me happier than he'd ever seen me.

I know that seems like a lot of side effects but compared to the HUGE list the information sheet it came with had thats nothing .
