I have been charting for about a year, the Creighton Model of Natural Family Planning/NaProTechnology and from these charts, it would appear that I am low in progesterone. I have not yet been able to get pregnant. My luteal phase is short. I asked my usual OBGYN to give me a progesterone test on P+10 and found out that I am indeed low on progesterone. The doctor wants to start me on Clomid, but what I wonder is why not Clomid AND progesterone together, so if I do conceive, I would have a lesser chance of miscarrying? I am 39 years old. Does Clomid automatically have an effect on progesterone, and if so, is it sufficient to help the progesterone issue?
Thank you for considering this question.
