No idea - and we will likely never know.
It could be an underlying cause of my infertility, but there’s no way to know if it’s the only issue. And I may have had a progesterone problem all along that wasn’t obvious or it may have developed from taking progesterone.

Ugh. No. I think we’ll be starting the cycle soon (which means I stop taking the birth control pill, I go in for baseline blood tests on cycle day 2, I start taking estrogen) then on the day I would start taking progesterone (cycle day 14 or so) I would go to the allergist’s office and they’d do the desensitization process. It only takes a day - they’ll start by giving me a tiny dose of progesterone (1/100th of my total dose) and gradually increase the dose throughout the day. That should do it. I’ll have my embryo transfer about 5 days later, continuing on the progesterone and estrogen the entire time.
Right now I’m just waiting for everything to get sorted and for my IVF doctor and my allergist to synch up and confirm the plan and timing.
Thanks for checking in! I feel a little in limbo right now, but I’m ok. :)
