Hi Ellen,
Wow sorry it's all causing so much drama. I hope that you have ovulated and that you'll still get a BFP this month. If not, at least they don't count it as an iui I guess. That at least is good, otherwise it would be very frustrating.

Keep us updated on how your progesterone levels do.

I'll be saying a special prayer for you guys this week, that everything works perfectly and you are gifted with a healthy child.

Update time!

These past few weeks I kept getting colds and infections which isn't great.

:-( Oh no, I´m so sorry you developed a cyst! That´s pants. I hope that goes away really quickly.
I get the waiting thing. It´s tough. Yes, you´re right, we have a lot to learn through all of this, our desire for Jesus to return should be as strong as our desire for infertility to be over. I also think about how my desire to see lost people saved should be as strong as my desire to experience new life through a pregnancy. That said, our feelings aren´t wrong, they´re normal. It´s just challenging to see how our desires for other important things aren´t maybe quite as strong as they should be.

I´m sorry, I can´t help you with the progesterone results. Because I´ve never been tested, I don´t really know anything about it. It is possible for your progesterone levels to go up for ovulation (they test them about 3 days post ovulation right?) and then they could drop. Your levels need to stay up for implantation and to maintain a pregnancy.
Yeah, if your ovulating fine without clomid, sounds like youre better off without it.
I´ve just started reading a book called "What your doctor may not tell you about premenopause- Balance your hormones and your life from Thirty to fifty" I´ll share anything good I discover, here on the board.

Hope you get rid of that cyst ASAP.
((HUGS)))

But not great news I'm afraid.

(((HUGS)) on period arriving :-( I hope this month they´ll get your meds just right though and that this will be it for you.

How do they test your progesterone levels? I´ve heard they can do it via blood, urine or saliva, but am interested to know which one the NHS uses.

Hang in there! Rooting for you. Please God may this be your month....

Just updating you to let you know that I got my period yesterday so we start the process all over again.:smileyfrustrated:

I was expecting it to come, but hoping it wouldn;t as well because of all the symptoms I was having.

I fully understand...to be honest, IUI, for me, was a matter of going through the motions.
