    Hope you don’t mind if I reply 🙂

    I never used progesterone cream, but that’s b/c it’s not available over the counter where I live. I really had looked into it but I would have to have gone through my doctor and I didn’t think she would have taken me seriously. I just used the B6+ B-Complex pills to increase progesterone.

    @proudcatlady:  I’m not familiar with your situation, but I’d assume any doctor who ran a test that showed you had low progesterone would prescribe you progesterone supplements, right? Is there a reason you’re not going through your doc? My progesterone wasn’t found to be low, but after two miscarriages, when I got pregnant again I wanted a script so I could feel like I did all I could to keep this baby. I took nightly for 12 weeks and now I’m 22w pregnant.

    I’d think you could use the cream (if your doc won’t prescribe supplements) until you get a BFP and THEN hopefully your doc will get you on suppositories or something similar to keep it up! Good luck!

    I looked into this a ton because I was really nervous about taking clomid at first. From my understanding the cream doesn’t really do anything. I want to beat your doctor with a women’s health text. So frustrating. My doctor prescribed clomid as soon as she got the low progesterone results. There is a supplement called pregnitude sold online and doctors will also give it out. Its suppose to help with better ovulation which leads to high progesterone production. You could look into that.

    @proudcatlady:  I totally looked into it, too, because my OB wrote off my two m/c as bad luck, so I was like, eff this, I’m taking this into my own hands. So I would do the same. I think I went on Amazon for some good reviews but in the end she gave it to me. I really don’t know if there are any downsides to it!
