So I've begun official fertility testing.

Me (36) DH (38)- me-unexplained IF/hypothyroid -DH-counts good, but volume is low; Married in 2006, off birth control pill. Started officially trying in March of 2009.
2 rounds clomid/ovidrel 2009, 1 round femara/iui, 2010, 2 rounds follistim/iui 2010. Weight loss surgery 2011.  Back to new RE 2012: HSG normal, AMH 0.43= DOR; IVF with microdose flare protocol in February 2013.

Okay, wait they tested your progesterone on cd1 and said it should be in the teens??? I am no dr but that doesn't make sense. Progesterone should be tested 7 days after ovulation and be in the teens to prove ovulation. On cd1 your progesterone levels have already dropped which is why you started AF.

I'm glad you got into an RE so quickly. I would bring up what the OB said about your cd 1 testing and see what they say about it. (I could just be totally wrong, LOL!)

I hope you get some good answers from your new RE and a BFP!!! I've definitely been there done that, so feel free to ask me any questions!

I'm 38, DH is 42 and we are TTC #1. We've had 3 unexplained miscarriages and a bout with Asherman's Syndrome but we're determined.

BFP #4! - 1/
