1. Urine pregnancy test.
2. Cervical swab for GC and chlamydia.

Prog levels are highest then; and that is part of it's function, to also enrich the uterus to sustain pregnancy. First, let me empathize, my wife took Prog to maintain her pregnancy (our only one!) Also, you may get pregnant underneath this, so much the better! Good Luck! ...Read more

Something else may be going on such as endometriosis, scar tissue, or ovarian cysts that are persistent. A small amount of bleeding can occur during ovulation because of the hormonal shift. ...Read more
