Hi everyone

My name is Sam and I have been lurking here for a while. I want to thank you for such wonderful information. MY RE refused to do more than just a TSH blood draw, so I went to someone else and am now getting a full thyroid panel. I just went today-- so I hope to have the test results back soon. I am hoping you will help me decider them and tell me how bad things really are.

I have been TTC for 18 cycles. I had an early loss in January and started to temp shortly after. It was then I realized that my temps are almost an entire degree lower than they should be. I recently started to see a fertility acupuncturist who looked at my chart and felt I had progesterone deficiencies ( I had suspected that) and I started bio identical progesterone a few days ago.

So I am anxiously waiting on my blood work

Has anyone charted while ttc and had temps as low as mine??

First !! Second, I have never seen temps that low!! I've charted for years. Took us 19 active/charting cycles and 4mos of fertility treatments (IUI/Femara) to get pg with Oliver. I also had to be on progesterone my whole 1st tri (as I believe Chrystal did too). It's pretty common for those with hypo. Let us know what your b/w comes back as.

Yeah, I am on my 18th cycle. I really don't want to get a Hypothyroid diagnosis-- but it would make sense and at least help me figure out what I need to do to get my BFP.

I know my temps are so super freaking low-- as you can see they are consistently low and I have used 3 BBT's. In fact I used to use 2 every AM to make sure they were saying about the same thing.

I'll KUP with my numbers-- I am sitting here staring at my cell-- waiting for it to ring.

K these are my test results

TSH 1.25
Thyroxine ( t4) 7.1
T3 uptake 28
Free Thyroxine Index 2.

Hope I got the right tests. However my progesterone 8 dpo was only 6.9 so it looks like my diagnosis is estrogen dominance--- low progesterone.
