Find guy & have sex: So you'll need to have sex w/guy if you want to get pregnant, at least in traditional free way. Or you can try ART (artificial reproductive techniques) w/donated sperm. Infertility isn't diagnosed until you go 12mo of active attempts w/o success. Natural creams won't help. Go see your Family Doc, OB or PP to make sure you're healthy enough to conceive. Then start prenatal vitamins while trying to ...Read more

Does progesterone cream increase risk of pregnancy?

Does progesterone cream increase risk of pregnancy?

It depends when used: Progesterone supplementation after ovulation can increase the chance for implantation and ongoing pregnancy in women with a luteal phase deficiency (suboptimal Progesterone production). Progesterone taken prior to ovulation may cause the endometrium to become secretory and may lower the chance for conception. Progesterone cream alone should not be used for contraception. ...Read more

I ovulated, then started using a very small amount of progesterone cream (1x a day) due to low progest. Period is now 3 days late. Could I be pregnant?

I ovulated, then started using a very small amount of progesterone cream (1x a day) due to low progest. Period is now 3 days late. Could I be pregnant?

Trust the test: Home pregnancy tests are very accurate. They are the same tests used in a doctor's office. They can detect a pregnancy 7-10 days after conception. The best time to take one is when you miss your period. If you doubt the result you can repeat it in 1-2 days. If you were pregnant the hormone level would rise enough for detection. ...Read more

I have been prescribed Clomid (clomiphene) am I Able to also take FertilAid or a progesterone cream wcould that decrease my chances of getting pregnant?

I have been prescribed Clomid (clomiphene) am I Able to also take FertilAid or a progesterone cream wcould that decrease my chances of getting pregnant?

I wouldn't: I mean no offense but - FertilAid is a waste of money. I know the website says it works, but read the fine print, even they say there's no proof. Progesterone creams are also fishy and probably not useful for 99% of cases. I recommend strongly that you work with a doctor you trust and NOT try to "do it yourself" with unproven products. Sincerely hope this helps you! ...Read more

Take vitamins: It is always wise to start prenatals before getting pregnant. If you had a miscarriage check 25-oh vit d3 blood level. Vit d deficiency is associated with infertility. Low Progesterone can be caused by stress and insufficient zinc. Avoid dairy, wheat and sugar which grow unfavorable bacteria in the GI tract and may decrease mineral absorption. ...Read more

Unclear results: Progesterone levels change throughout the menstrual cycle. Because of this there are not usually checked as a baseline marker to gauge fertility. They are often checked on menstrual day 21 to determine if ovulation occurred. A Progesterone above 10 on that day reflects ovulation. Clarify with the ordering physician why this test was done and what interpretation they have for the results. ...Read more
