Hi girls, I was just wondering if anyone knew anything about low progesterone? I believe I O"d on CD20, according to my temps, it's many days later and I have no AF and neg pregnancy test and lower temps. I didn't think I was temping inccurately or anything, but I don't understand how I can't have AF if not pregnant. Please view the chart, and tell me if you know anything about low progesterone levels...

Thanks in advance

It looks to me like you had an anovulatory cycle. Which means you didn't O. However, I am no expert, so hopefully someone else will pipe in with more insite. I have low progesterone and take prometrium starting cd17 every cycle. Do you have low progesterone?

I'm not the best at analyzing charts, but I didn't see a big thermal shift after you thought you o'd. Progesterone is the hormone that increases after ovulation and it is the hormone that causes the temps to rise (from what I understand). THe way I found out I had low progesterone, though, was my luteal phase was kind of short, so my doctor had me do the "day 21" blood test to check my progesterone & it indeed was low. LIke wannabeamom, I take prometrium on cd 16-28, and it does seem to be helping to raise my temps higher than before, and is doing a good job of regulating my cycle length. I don't know if you can truly know if your progesterone is low unless you ask to have the b/w done.

Thanks so much girls, I' ve just been trying to figure out why my cycles are so irregular. I have not been diagnosed with anything. I mentioned to the doc that my cycles were irregular and he wasn't the least concerned. I guess I'll keep temping and see what happens...

How long have you been ttc? IF it's been a year or more & your doctor is not concerned by irregular cycles, I would change doctors! Good luck!

I've been off the pill for about 8 months. Fertilityfriend did take away my ovulation calculation today, as my temps are still all over the place on CD45, and no AF. I guess I'll keep temping and see what happens...
