I don't know much about progesterone, but about being dry--there is a lubricant called Pre-seed that is very close to what a woman's body makes on her own. Many people swear by it and have been able to get pregnant because of it. If you don't have any cervical fluid, you won't have a great chance at getting pregnant because there's nothing for the sperm to swim in and they die very quickly.
It's not available at stores (I don't think) and you have to order it online.
Best of luck to you!

Hey thx for ur help.I was just wondering if there's any alternative to preseed???Can KY Jelly be used??

my doctor told me not to use ky b/c it kills or slows down the sperm

No--KY is NOT good for conceiving. That is the good thing with the Pre-seed--it's sperm freindly and mimics a womans natural fluid--KY does not, and is actually quite hostile to sperm.
