question about progesterone

So, I'm just curious from others who have been on progesterone. I take 200 mg of prometrium starting at day 18 of my cycle, and stop as soon as I get a bfn. I have been doing this for the past 5 cycles now. So far, I had one chemical pregnancy, and no luck getting pregnant other than that. I never had issues getting pregnant before starting the progesterone, and got pregnant the 1st cycle we tried every time, with a total of 4 pregnancies, 1 ending with my dd. I am thinking that the progesterone is screwing up my body, and my chances of getting pregnant. I'm thinking about stoppin taking it, and just start it once I get a positive test. I'm going to ask my dr next week for her opinion, but was wondering what others think? I appreciate your input, because I'm getting impatient over here, and ick of the let downs every month!

I am on progesterone suppositories.. Start it 3 days after ovulation. On 14dpo, test if negative I stop it.. I was on the Suppoaitories with my first pregnancy which ended in a missed miscarriage.. I feel the Progeterone extended my LP so I was pleased

I just went to a specialist who said that there is no scientific evidence to prove that there is such thing as low progesterone. He refuses to prescribe it because he says that women don't get pregant any faster than those who aren't taking it. Do what you feel is right for your body.
