I'm slowly processing the news I got this morning. It was good.. and it was suckish.
Friday I got a blood test to check my progesterone levels and see if I ovulated. Simple blood test... or so I thought.
Dr called me this morning with the results.
The problem is ME!
and me alone:(
A little about progesterone in regards to women and their cycles:
In women, progesterone levels are relatively low during the preovulatory phase of the menstrual cycle, rise after ovulation, and are elevated during the luteal phase. Progesterone levels tend to be <> 5 ng/ml after ovulation.
This was why I had to get tested at day 21... because I ovulated and should have high levels.
Or so I thought.....
My levels after ovulation was less then 2. Which means I didn't ovulate.
And because I don't ovulate, I can't get pregnant.
So now I'll start taking progesterone for 10 days starting the beginning of the month and then clomid (non of that mexican crap) starting my next cycle and who knows what will happen from there. If it works, great! If it doesn't, I'm still broken.
While this news sucks, that good thing is we have an answer (for now) and at least we are moving forward still.
Kristys hubby said months ago that I can't get pregnant until May... maybe he knows something we don't!
Boone and his baby!
