    i was prescribed aygestin, a synthetic progesterone, because of pcos related menstrual issues, id skip several months and then bleed several months. i take it for 10 days, then have a normal monthly. after the big o, however, 1 to 2 days after i intend on using my bioidentical progesterone cream, as aygestin isnt recommended during pregnancy, to grow a nice lush uterine lining for an eggy to implant onSmile. if i dont conceive, ill stop the cream, which will hopefully trigger another cycle. if not its 10 more days of aygestin.

    I am prescripted protreium progesteron suppositories.  I got my positive OPK on Saturday and had an IUI on Sunday (yesterday).  I will start the suppositories on Tuesday.  So I guess that is 3 days after the positive OPK.  I continue to take that for 12 days.  On the 12th day, I take a HPT.  If that is positive, I continue the progesteron for the first trimester.  If it is negative, I stop the progesteron.

    @ChuckNorris I track via opk, cervical mucus, and saliva ferning. because pcos has made my hormones wacky, my temp is usually wacky and hard to follow too.
