So I guess this means it's never going to work... :(

The level was 15 nmol/L - coverted to the US measurement - that means 4.71 ng/mL. Drs feel you need a progesterone level of 10 ng/mL for a viable pregnancy.

Well, at least it means I ovulated. I found this:

Several other biochemical parameters can be used to determine if ovulation has occurred--eg, an elevation in serum progesterone (>= 4 ng/mL )

Our 1st precious baby together - m/c @ 8wks - Feb 14, 2004,

plus several chemical pregnancies since.

My three children : 16y, 27y, 29y

Plus 5 + previous babies lost.

What's the point of being so fertile if I can't hold onto one little baby?

I can't find a dr willing to work with me due to my age, and the only dr I could convince to humour me and do the testing - refuses to prescribe progesterone suppliments as he doesn't believe they are worthwhile. He says all miscarriages are meant to be, and there is nothing we can do or should do to prevent them.

I ovulate regularly, with nice high temps post-O, my charts are better than some 20y olds! I am currently taking Maca, Vitex, a homeopathic tinture for preventing miscarriage that contains False Unicorn, and rubbing on progesterone cream after I ovulate. But still it doesn't seem to be enough...
