So I started to wonder why I wasn't prescribed any progesterone and looked into why it is prescribed and discovered what a luteal phase defect is.  I went back to my chart and saw that mt lethal phase was only 10 days, which is iffy... it should ideally be 14 days. This is really important because a fertilized egg needs a chance to implant!!! I am suspicious about the early cramping being due to my lining getting ready to shed :0/

I feel like this could be the big missing puzzle piece! I only wish my RE would've put me on progesterone this cycle. I emailed and got an out of office reply. Booo. I started using the otc cream but there is no real consensus if this really works.
Time will tell...

You know you can always call and tell the advice nurse you want progesterone.  I would suggest endometrin much better than prometrium. Probably best to use it next cycle if this one isn't the one since you should start it three days after ovulation.  I didn't use it this cycle, decided to see what is going on with me without it.

After what I went through with the trigger shot drama, I don't feel comfortable to call the advice nurse anymore. I will just wait it out till next cycle, I agree about needing it by  3 dpo. Incidentally, that is ALWAYS the first day I start getting AF like cramping! Ughhhhhhh. Very frustrating!
