I am a mom of two (very easily conceived). My hd and I have been trying for a year for #3 and found out I am not ovulating and not having my periods. My progesterone level was very low. My OB decided to put me on Provera and then clomid (the low dose) and up it until my progesterone level is back up and hopefully get pregnant (warning me of the chance of multiples). My sister freaked when I told her about the clomid and thought it was not smart because of the chance of multiples. My mom was pretty neutral about it because after all she did take clomid to conceive my freaked out sis. My friend (who takes a holistic approach) pointed me to progesterone cream because it's a more natural form of progesterone and less side effects. When I asked my Dr. about the cream he said it wasn't concentrated enough to get my cycles started back. Just wanting some advise and see if anyone else has been in this situation. Thks!
My husband and I have been trying to conceive for overÂ a year also. I have 5 other children, all conceived on the first attempt. So imagine my surprise a year later and still not pregnant ( I did have an ectopic 3 months ago). Anyway, I am in the same situation as you, kind of. I am ovulating and still getting my period, but I have a low progesterone level. My doctor just put my an a progesterone gel suppository. IfÂ I don't end up pregnant this cycle, we are going to go on clomid. There is a chance of having multiples, but my ob told me it is only 8%.

to add. My chances are slightly higher because I am older (36) and have had several pregnancies. My ob also said that before he would give my the injection to release the eggs, he would do an ultrasound to make sure that there weren't to many eggs(like 5 or 6). He said that if there were to many eggs he would not give me the injection and would advise me not to have sex during my fertile time. It seems like they are very careful to make sure that mega multiples don't happen. If you would like to talk some more let me know. We seem to be in similar situations.

I am not getting injected with clomid. The injection is to release the eggs after you have been on clomid.
