Pity Party

My doctor said that I would be more fertile now since I had a miscarriage and a d&c. She was wrong. My progesterone level is .725 when it should be 18 or higher. This makes me feel broken as a woman and defeated. Before my pregnancy, my level was 14 so I took Clomid which made it rise into the 20s so that I would be able to sustain a pregnancy. I'm not even sure Clomid is going to help now. Will it raise it enough? Since this is a hormone supplement I can only take it a few times before it increases my chances of having ovarian cancer. I'm off to eat another box of Thin Mints.


  1. Amy,
    I'm so sorry about how the test results came out. I don't know how I can help you but if there is anything I can do let me know. Try not to feel defeated...I hope things work out the best for you and they way you hope for.
    Lots of hugs...

  2. Amy-
    I have a great book to raise your spirits.

    "Let me be a women" by Elizabeth Elliott

    I hope you are doing well.
