first ob appt after m/c nervous

So Thursday would have been my first prenatal appt, so it makes me sad that I'm going for other reasons. I am hopeful because maybe I can get some testing done. My thyroid was slightly underactive last time I got blood work in March and I read that hypothyroidism can cause m/c. I also wanna see if there is anything else I can get done, any ideas of what I should ask for? I O regularly so that's not a problem, but I have only gotten a BFP one time in 2 yrs that ended in m/c, so I wonder if something else is going on?? Maybe low progresterone?? I'm nervous especially cause I hate needles and the lab, but I want a baby so badly, I will do whatever it takes. Thanks for listening, Jen

Sorry your appt is not what you want it to be...hopefully you can get some answers. I think its hard to rely on that though since so much of it is hard to pinpoint.

Anyway, not sure about questions. Im going for my post D&C today. I will ask about Femara. I O regularly as well but given my age I figure I might need a push to do a better job at it. Im curious to see what my Dr has to say about what to do. Im really guessing she'll just say keep trying & hopefully give me Femara.

HAve you charted at all or know how long your LP is? If its short then I would definitely get Progesterone checked but they usually check it @ day 7 or 10, i forget now.

thanks. I think my LP is generally about 14 days, I do spot 1-2 days before AF. What is considered too short for a LP? Thanks for your help and good luck at your appt, Jen

Thats a good LP, even if you spot before AF thats technically not starting AF yet.

They say 12 days + is a good LP

I cant recall if I said to you or someone else but I only get 12 days with 400mg of Progesterone.
