Long time lurker, first post. Please be kind!
Came off pill in January and have had stupidly long cycles ever since (last one 95 days!). TTC so have been charting temps since June and using OPKs and know I have ovulated every cycle, albeit after a very long delay (last cycle ovulation was cd 80). Have 15/16 day luteal phase from temperature rise so that seems ok. Hospital doc suspects PCOS and has requested day 1 and 21 bloods, referred for scan and prescribed 400mg cyclogest (progesterone) from day 14 to day 26 for 3 months. I am confused why I've been prescribed it - does anyone have experience of this?
1.Do the day 14 and 26 rules apply even though I know I won't have ovulated by then? Or do I ignore the days and take after ovulation (whenever that might be!) I would assume the cyclogest at day 14 will prevent ovulation so that will knock out ttc this month if I take as prescribed.
2. Why test bloods on day 21? I know it will show I haven't ovulated. Thought they had to be done 7 days before period due, but I don't know when that would be.
3. Do I keep charting my temperature? I guess I wouldn't need to be looking for ovulation if the cyclogest is going to stop it.
4. Do I expect a period after day 26?
I've googled everything I can think of and cannot find much, only progesterone in early pregnancy which is not helpful!
I'm so grateful to any lovely ladies on here who might be able to put me out of my misery and give me some advice! smile
