I don't know about this cycle. And this was my 150mg clomid HCG shot (on CD15) cycle.

I got hot flashes so bad from the clomid this cycle that my temps are totally unreliable. Then right after possible O I started running a fever so I don't know how much I trust those 98+ temps. Just given my past charts, except during my period or during clomid, my temps are rarely above 96.8 pre-o. Not only were my temps all wacky I did not have reliable CM at all.

I was very crampy right after the shot and then nothing, no cm. I'd say the past 2 or three days I've been crampy like my period is going to start and started some maybe creamy/watery CM. I've been sick since Monday night though.

The results from my CD21 progesterone is 10.88. The RE says this is an ok number and that yes I ovulated but last cycle my numbers were 18.9.

I don't know. I'm tired. Seriously tired. What are your ladies thoughts?

{{{{HUGS}}}} I'm sorry this is such a rotten cycle, at least in how you are feeling.

I was able to speak to my regular OB today that I really like. She said the numbers are fine. Progesterone isn't like HCG numbers where they are looking for doubling numbers or anything like that. The levels vary numerous times during the day.

I feel much better after speaking with her.

My O day this cycle was either CD16 or 18, last cycle was CD17.

The wait begins. I'd feel better about the wait if I had had good CM but since I didn't I'm worried the little swimmers had a tough time! :/

I'm glad you got some better answers about the progesterone thing.

I did the 'tussin, which is disgusting!! That is NOT cherry flavor! :) I had a little good quality 2 or 3 days before the trigger shot. We did use pre-seed a few times well timed for the cycle.

Yep- no IUI this cycle. Crossing all my fingers and toes! :)

You're supposed to be engaged in activities that will take your mind off the flavor of the cough syrup

Grumble. So far I got negatives. My chart is so strange this cycle. Check it out.

It dropped and I thought for sure AF would show, but nope. Now it's climbing again.

Last cycle was a 15day LP, so I guess I should expect the same. Grumble, Grumble. I really wanted to go into my daughter's birthday month with her sibling.

Hi there,


When was your progest level taken?

My progesterone was taken 5 days after my possible O day (CD16). I was surprised by how low it was, especially since my LP was basically the same this cycle as it was last cycle... 15 days.

Today I started minor spotting, AF is on her way. I soo wish I was a CD15 BFP-er, but I'm a CD15 AF-er. >:(

Another cycle down. I called my OB and asked for a HSG to rule that out since now we've had 3 well timed cycles with no results. She agreed, so that will be CD9. Then CD14 I will go for the follie check and hopefully trigger and then CD15 falls on a Saturday and we will do our IUI.

My daughter's birthday is the 27th, I hope we can give her a sibling for her birthday.

Hi there,


Well, if it was only 5 days after O, your levels would not have been as high as they would get~ I believe that your progest levels "peak" around 9dpo's.. they usually test around cd21, which is about 7 days out, so maybe your actual levels were a bit higher?
