Can taking progesterone supplements help your luteal phase?

Sometimes. A luteal phase defect (lpd) is the name for a problem of too little Progesterone (p4) after ovulation. The diagnosis can be difficult to diagnose because tests of low p4 are controversial. However, if your doctor diagnoses lpd then the treatment is p4 to relace what yu do not make. Another treatment is to improve the follicle so that it naturally makes enough p4 itself. Best wishes.

Yes, but try more. Yes, it's ok, but most experts suggest taking a total of 100-200 mg/day. However, it is wise to be cautious as doses over 200 mg/day have the potential to cause a reversible neuropathy (though that does not usually occur in doses below 1000 mg). Start with 100 mg/day.

I know progesterone dominates the luteal phase, but is it possible to also have estrogen surges during this time? Particul. Round 2/3 days past O?

Yes. Yes, it is not uncommon to have a "secondary estrogen surge" a few days after ovulation. The estrogen surge is not as significant as the Progesterone surge, but it is still responsible for creating fertile cervical mucous and lowering the basal body temperature. Once those two hormones drop off in levels, your lining sheds and you have your period-unless you become pregnant during the luteal phase. Read more...

2 issues. There are two issues. First of all, day 18 is a little early to check a progesterone. It peaks about a week after ovulation, though yours is quite low. Second, a Progesterone deficiency is usually related to an ovulation problem not really a disorder in itself. The best way to fix that is to improve ovulation. In women with pcos weight loss, low carbs and exercise may help. Read more...
