progesterone therepy

ok, i was diagnosed with both progesterone defiency, which was a level of 9 when it was supposed to be 599, and a testosterone deficiency with a level of 6 when it was supposed to be 299. i have been on a hormone replacement cream for about 6 months now and have shown extreme improvement in symptoms. however, there is no real way to tell if my infertility has been resolved. i have explored the internet and havent been able to find much information on the results of the treatment  or the side effects, and was wondering if anyone had any advice or personal experience. its very frustraating when aunt flo arrives right on time every month :(

well i wasnt ovulating at all when i started the treatment. im not seeing an endocrine doctor, im seeing a hormone specilist. im currently on natural progesterone and natural testosterone. im very very sensitive to artificial hormones so i really cant take them. and i never really understood how to chart my temps so i guess i should probably figure that one out. thanks for letting me know what i should be doing :)

Are you seeing an endocrinologist? I was told by my endocrinologist that supplementing with progesterone before ovulation can prevent ovulation from happening. Are you charting your temps to see if you are ovulating?

What are you taking for testosterone? I have heard that DHEA can help if testosterone is low. Good luck!
