What can I do about low progesterone levels?

Add progesterone: Progesterone levels can be increased 3 ways. Clomid stimulates he ovary to produce a larger follicle, which in turn produces more progesterone. Oral Progesterone in the form of Prometrium (micronized progesterone) taken by mouth will increase serum progesterone. Vaginal Progesterone suppositories will also increase serum progesterone. All three methods have there own set of risks and benefits.
