Okay so I went to my OB after my recent miscarriage. It was really early (4.5 wks). My cycles before birth control were crazy. I would skip months at a time. Since coming off bc, my cycles are more normal, but still not great for TTC. My luteal phase is really short.
Anyway, he prescribed me progesterone to start my period and then femara to take on cd 5-9. I can’t start the progesterone until at least Monday. They have to confirm my hcg is down to 0, which I’m sure it is. But until then I can’t start. He also said I could just wait til a natural period and just do the femara.
My question is, Monday will be cd 13 which is around when I should ovulate. If I start taking progesterone and conceive this cycle, as soon as I stop taking my 12 days worth, wouldn’t it drop and cause amother MC? But then if I conceive this cycle and don’t take it, I could still miscarry since my luteal phase is so short.
He did order a cd 24 progesterone level, but that is for when I start taking the femara, not this cycle.
I guess we could skip this cycle completely and avoid BDing this week just in case. Just not sure what to do! It’s so crazy that this little pill can both hurt and help a pregnancy.
