43 yo, spotting/cramps

I started cramping on 5DPO which was also the only day I had my highest temp. Cramping continued and became worst starting on 7DPO. This cycle I also used progesterone cream. Couldn't get in to see the doctor to have progesterone testing. Seeing a different doctor week after next. I have fibroids and have been TTC for about 5 years.

I also restarted 100mg of B6 this cycle.

Hi lilbm, I just started my cycle yesterday.  Crap.  So have you had your fibroids looked at and told it wouldn't interfere w/pregnancy?  I forgot.  I have a friend who had to have hers removed since it caused too  much of a problem w/her cycle.  Looks like your spotting is AF due to temp drop.  I take the Trader Joe's b6-b12-folic acid sublingual per a recommendation on here and my LP went from 9 to 11/12 days w/no spotting ahead of AF and more flow.  Hopefully the b6 will help you w/the LP.  How are you feeling?

Yes, it showed up yesterday.  Fibroids need to come out via myomectomy since the vaginal removal failed this past December.  I've given myself 6 months to try to get pregnant on my own, before scheduling surgery.

I only got a chance to take B-6 starting the week of ovulation.  I'm sure that wasn't long enough.  I've permanently added to my daily regimen of vitamins.

Other than that, feeling fatigue.  It seems to come and go.  I see another Ob-Gyn next week for also specializes in hormonal imbalances, infertility, etc.

How are you doing?
