Self-diagnosis

I'm calling lute.al pha.se de.fect.

This cycle, I waited and waited. CD 19 and the OPK finally shows up positive. And yes, my cycle is usually 28 days. Hmmmm...

Now, I know I don't always ovulate late, because I've done (I think) three or four rounds of OPKs and I've been closer to the middle before, but I also know that I've ovulated late before.

So, while I'm in this mood of self diagnosing, I might as well self medicate too.

If I don't get pregnant this cycle, I think I'm going to take the Clo.mid next cycle (that Dr. N prescribed.) From what I'm reading, doctors use Clo.mid to treat lute.al pha.se de.fect, and really, what's the worst that could happen? I have another miscarriage? There's a big chance of that anyway. So what the hell, right?

Please, please, please BEG for Endometrin. That stuff is gold and the one reason I belive I'm carrying this pregnancy after 7 m/c's..

Um... OK. Most of that was kind of gobledeegook to me, but I think I get the gist. Late ovulation and funky cycles, right? I'm not surprised with all the stress you've been under this month. That amount of chaos would mess with anyone's cycle. Hopefully your new positive outlook will help reduce the stress a bit and maybe that will help get your cycle back on track. Fingers crossed for you.

OK, I just looked down and the wordverification is cousinvi. I wonder if it's Vi as in short for Violet or VI the roman numeral.
