21 days into cycle and......

I went into the hospital yesterday to get blood drawn for a progesterone test.  I got the results back today and they said my level was at .58 and said it was really low.  I just started Femara this cycle for the first time.  Either I didn't ovulate or they didn't catch when I was suppose to ovulate.   They said if my period doesn't start by October 25th (day 35 of my cycle) they will start me on provera to get my period started and then they will double my dosage for the Femara this next month.   The thing is I have been having normal periods since I got off of birth control in March.  I don't know what to think.  Anybody have to deal with this or have had this happen before?

You can have normal periods without ovulating.

Its one of the strange fertility conditions that are hard to catch because on all aspects it seems like your ovulating, but tests (such as yours) show you really arent! \

Good luck!

A little background history is that I have PCOS and endometriosis.  My husband also has a low sperm count.  We are going to see a fertility specialist next monday for his problems and I have been dealing with my doctor with mine.  It just seems nothing can go right for us.

Seems like its the "down time" between waiting for doc appts that those with difficulties end up getting pregnant.... hopefully it will happen for you too!

I've had periods without ovulating and also REALLY long cycles were I dont ovulate for a month.  I could always tell by my basel body temprature.  I had a couple times were I would have my period every two weeks for a couple months but didnt ovulate.  Not sure what caused that... Stupid female issues that we have  }:  (
