I'm waiting for my appointment with my doctor on Monday. I was on Clomid Sept. and Oct. Both times the progesterone levels were low. 2.6 and 1.8. When I was pregnant with my daughter I was on Progesterone pill for the first 10 weeks. What I'm wondering is the low progesterone making it hard for me to get pregnant? Could I take clomid and progesterone to help? I'm worried that the doctor is going to say that the clomid is not working and we need to go a different route and more expensive route. I'm just worried about this appointment and disappointed that af came.

im sure there is something they can do still for you. i know lots of women who have low progesterone and take clomid. what the dr.s do sometimes is have you take the clomid, and then right after O start progesterone. Good luck and hope for the best sweety!

Progesterone is an important part of ttc and pg. The progesterone tells your body when to ovulate it also helps build your lining so when you do fertalize an egg it allows it to stick. On my first pg my progesterone was high enough to show that I ovulated but at a 15 my lining wasn't sticky enough for implanting. The clomid didn't work for me so now I am having to take inj.

With progesterone that low, you are not ovulating effectively on the Clomid. You may just need a higher dose. Everyone responds a little differently and sometimes by raising the dose just 50 mg, you might have a strong ovulation. On a Clomid cycle the doctors want to see your progesterone at least 15 or higher. Anything over 10 means you ovulated, and less means you probably did not or it was not a mature egg.

Another important thing is to track when you are ovulating and go for your progesterone test 7 DPO. Some dr's will automatically just say come in day 21 for a progesterone test, but sometimes you can ovulate later like on day 19, 20, or even later, and if your progesterone is not checked on the right day it will falsely seem really low.
