I'm on cyclogest for suspected luteal phase defect. First month. I've been ttc for ages and have some really traumatic losses at quite late terms. So as much as I want to be pregnant again, I'm also shitting it. I can not handle seeing a bfn but know I will need to test as cyclogest delays period. When shall I test? 14dpo will prob be next Monday. If I just stopped taking cyclogest would I come on if I wasn't pregnant? docs haven't been super helpful

I'm sorry the fertility doctors aren't being helpful. That's awful. flowers
If I were you I would get a blood test at 14dpo rather than do a home test. A blood test will likely be much more accurate at that stage than a home test, and it would give you some peace of mind with regards to continuing taking the meds.
I don't know about cyclogest by the way, so don't know how long you're supposed to keep taking it (but I've got a LPD and have just started on progesterone pessaries which the fertility doctor told me I should keep taking until my period arrives. If however I get a bfp I should continue taking it for the whole of the first trimester.)
If you have a sympathetic GP who understands anxiety or other mental health issues, you could ask them for a blood test on 14dpo, explaining your issues re previous losses and confusion about the meds. If you don't have a sympathetic GP do consider paying for a private blood test. It'll be a once off right now and may help alleviate your worries.
Good luck.

Cyclogest is a progesterone pessary, is it not what you've been prescribed? Good point re blood test

I'm on utrogestan 200mg gel capsule, one twice a day, vaginal. I figure they are all mostly the same regardless of the brand-name, it's just the dosage which changes?
