I left a msg for my RE yesterday with this question, but she hasn't called me back yet ($%(&^$!!!), so I need some reassurance.
You guys may remember when i wrote that my holistic doc had me on progesterone every day for the last 5 months. When I saw my RE for the first time last week, she told me to stop taking it completely since it could adversely affect "o" if taken in the FP. So I stopped taking it last Thursday. You all confirmed that you were only taking prog during LP.
I had first U/S on Friday at RE office that indicated that I had already O'd within the last 24 hours.
So now it's 4 days later in LP, without progesterone and ALL symptoms are coming back from before I was on progesterone. Am I killing my chances? Don't know if I should trust the doctor telling me to stop the prog altogether. I realize now that's a huge change in the middle of a cycle!!
So, I get that the RE wants me to be clean and clear for the blood tests she wants to run the first days of my next cycle, but now I feel like I am risking a good chance of BFP this month since we used Pre-seed for the first time and had some good bd-ing!
What would you do? So confused since two docs are giving me conflicting information. I've already made an appt with another RE, just as a sanity check, but it's not until Sept 16. And this one hasn't called me back. Should I start taking the prog again? Help!
