My cycle is usually about 26 days when I don't use progesterone, with late O and I have quite a short LP. I have been to local GP to set things in motion for DE in Czech Rep, we hope to cycle in April if possible. First I need to organise a trans vaginal ultrasound for a lining check on cd12-14, no meds. This is so they see in advance what they will be working with and then I start BCP at the start of the following AF until they schedule in the donor etc.

But guess what, just my stupid luck, this cycle has turned out to be the cycle from hell - I had mid cycle spotting for about 4 days, no cm and no O. I'm now on cd38 and still no AF but I am having strange feelings like AF is trying to come but can't. I have been charting my temps and these have generally remained low overall, certainly no sustained peak, so I know I didn't ovulate this month. But, what the heck, just in case, I did a preg test, and of course it was negative.

So now I'm really worried what effect will this strange cycle have on my next cycle, if and when AF finally arrives that is. Will it mess things up for that lining check that I have to organise?

Also, do you think it would be a good idea to take some progesterone for a while, to get my temps up and then hopefully when I stop then AF will kick in? I have some suppositories from an old cycle that are still in date and I could use them. Or do you think its too late for that I should just wait for AF to turn up?

What do you all think, please?

my dr asked for monitoring (b/w and u/s) to see what was going on (is there a cyst? is it producing estrogen? is there a thick lining to shed or thin lining that never built up? etc etc). Monitoring will give you answers fast, the alternative is just waiting it out, but since you want to cycle soon I would get it checked out and resolved (depending on your monitoring results it will probably be something easily solved with meds). Then IMHO if you can stand it you can go on BCPs to regulate your cycles until DE, just to try to avoid it happening again (I personally hate to be on BCPs even for a couple months but it will help keep things regular and predictable).

did not build a lining to shed. I went on the pill and stayed on only active pills until my cycle was ready to start. I had to travel across the country and there is no way I was going to take a chance on mother nature.

still no show for AF and unfortunately its really difficult for me to organise ultrasound. I'm going to wait another while. a week maybe, and hope for AF to appear because I know I haven't ovulated based on temps so I am hoping that is the only problem. I hadn't thought about cysts etc so I hope that is not what is going on down there. Will wait and see.....

Thanks again for responding.
