I have the same situation. My o is on CD 14 but my cycle is normally about 25 days. My OB DR said that older women have lower progesterone levels which effects the second half of your cycle. I have had two m/c in the past 4 months. After my cycle this month to let my body recover I am having a blood test on CD 25 to check progesterone levels. Then on CD 14 of the next cycle I am going to start taking progesterone for 14 days. He said this should make getting and staying pregnant easier. I feel better because I now have "a plan". I hope this help. I will post when I have news. I figure we will be able to get PG around Christmas. DH however wishes to "practice" lots between now and then. :)

I hope this helps. I wish you the best.

Barb,

I turned 40 this past July. Good luck at the Dr. I changed DR after my last m/c because of their lack of concern or urgency in helping me have a baby at 39-40 and because it was a big practice and I had to go through a panel of nurses on a different floor to get information about tests or to get questions answered. When I called to get results of my blood test to see if I was having a m/c they just casually said I needed to see a reproductive endocronologist ( or whatever they are called). I am now going to a DR, reg. OB, in my small hometown who was recommended to my by a friend. I personally think my previos DR in a large practice with lots of DR just doesn't deal with problems like mine, they shuttled me off to a specialist. I hope you have good luck. Don't be afraid to change DR if you don't get the results or the information you need. If I can be of anyhelp let me know. Keep in touch.
