Description:
Here we go, this is my 2nd chart post mc. I have a couple of questions. Do you think it is possible I ovulated later than indicated? Also I have been taking progesterone cream since 3dpo - I have had a sudden jump in my temps - I only ever got to 36.9 when I was pregnant - do you think this is the progesterone cream or??? Thanks in advance.

I used progesterone cream last cycle. I also started it 3 DPO and my temps were slightly higher than typical. Normally my temps are 98.2-98.4 and my temps were at 98.6 (at their peak) with the progesterone cream.  Your O date looks accurate to me. Your chart awesome! Good luck!

Your chart looks great, and I agree with your O date.  I love charting, but sometimes I think it causes us to be too analytical when we should just sit back and wait :)  GL!

Anna thanks so much. I am pretty sure it is a bfn this month.

Juliebird, Thanks, I was guessing it was the progesterone that gave me the spike, certainly lengthened my lp though. I dont have any other preg. Symptoms. Did you stop the progesterone cream to get af?

Aprilfool you are so right! I wish I would stop obsessing and just let things be. Fat chance.

No, I did not have to stop the progesterone cream to get AF. Mine was not prescription though so my dosage may have been lower than what you're taking. Good luck! If it makes you feel any better, I am 13 DPO (longest LP ever!!!) still BFN and high temp again today! I TOTALLY understand the obsessing! :) Keep us posted!

Temps are looking good!!  I think staying on a low dose of progesterone is safer since there's some evidence of penile dysplasia in boys.  My dr. won't even give me progesterone so I may have to go to another one for a low dose if needed.  It's the higher doses that cause the boy problems from what I understand.  Oh and you may have O'd on day 21 if your coverline was a little higher.  GL!!

Juliebird Yeah I am taking natural progesterone cream, a dot in the morning and a dot in the evening.I am 13DPO which has never happened before! Yay! Hope the cream works out for the both of us soon! Good luck to you to!

Thanks fairymist12! I didnt get my progesterone cream through my doctor, it is natural progesterone cream and only a tiny bit. I didnt know about any side effects, you might be right about the high doses. Thanks for your feedback. GL!
