And off we ...... stop

I had my baseline ultrasound and blood tests this morning.

The lady doing the ultrasound said I had a beautiful uterus. She also said I was "ready to go" but I wasn't sure if she simply meant "get off my table and get dressed".

Then I had my blood tests - a little painful, but not too bad.

All was okay until I got my results.

I knew it wasn't the best news when the nurse called and said : "um, ..."

In typical Bugsy style I sat and waited for the bombshell.

She said "When you said you had your period, was it like a normal one?" and I said "well, Yes. I am on day 3 today and still have my period, cramps and all".

She said "It's just that your progestone level is 10.9 which I would expect to see after ovulation, not during your period"

Results are:

Oestrogen: 128 (normal)
Progesterone: 10.9 (abnormal - normal is < 5)
LH: 2.6 (normal)

So I am not allowed to start OI just yet. She wants me to have another blood test on Monday, and we will see if today's progesterone is just a one off.

How did I know this wasn't going to be simple.
