An 11 day LP is GREAT Dina!!! :) You should be excited for that!

I hope 100mg is a perfect fit for your body! Good luck!

have you discussed progesterone supplements with your OB to lengthen your LP?
i was averaging 9-10 days for my LP before my pregnancy and using progesterone supplements. good news is you CAN get preggo with a short LP, but i feel better about providing a safe environment with the progesterone now when i do finally get knocked up again. i have no idea if the mc was related to my progesterone levels for sure, but i'll likely always wonder. things are different for everyone, i'm just curious whether this has been a discussion for you.
how's the clomid coming so far??

Diane- I have been wondering if I shouldn't ask about progesterone supplements. I think she just wanted to try the Clomid for now and see if it helps. I'm actually on my 3rd medicated cycle. It sounds like you can use either for treating a short LP, but different women respond better to different treatments. I'm unsure what I need at this point and I'm trying really hard not to be pushy with my doctor. The nurse mentioned a referral if the HSG is negative. I'm thinking I might welcome a referral if I get to that point and there is a doctor who works here who focuses on fertility but I don't think she's an RE. I think the only RE's are in the next city over which would end up being about a 40 minute drive from here at the University of Iowa.

I'm a little frustrated at this point, but it's only my 3rd cycle and I know I need to be patient. DH and I are both ready to be done with the trying part and concentrate on planning for a baby instead.

How are things going for you? I try to watch the long timer's buddy group to see how everyone is doing. I really should join it at this point since I've been trying over a year. I have a few girls in the newbie group that I connect with though and I don't want to leave them high and dry. Maybe I'll just post on both...who knows. I hope you're doing well. It's time we had a few of us long termers get some BFP's!
