Still very faints after otd, does progesterone block my bleeding?


Hi all. Today 14dp5dt and im getting the faintest lines. I posted before that my lines are getting lighter after approximately 10dp5dt.

Since i still dint have a period i was wondering if it is my progesterone 3 times a day that is stopping my period to come.

I know i need to keep repeating it in a few days but im just so gutted as my clinic doesnt provide me with blood test.

Any advice is welcome x

The best way to find out is through a blood test. Is there no way they can give you one?

Just went in and asked for a blood test and they said they dont do it.

I usually do the blood test privately and pay for it... the agony of waiting is just too much. I check the internet for private blood test clinics in my area

Thats maybe a good idea. How many times did u go back?

I’ve been 3 times


Hi Mimisami. if you are still getting any kind of a positive "line", then it might be an idea to pay for a Beta hCG blood test so you know for definite what is going on. Progesterone can prevent bleeding from happening, but I wouldn't stop any prescribed medication until you have been instructed to d so. Thinking of you. Diane

Thank you Diane. I was wondering if there are any chains in the uk that do these tests frequently. I heard people talk abt private scans too. Or do i go to a private hospital (im greater manchester area) sorry just dont know where to start the search xx

Thank you very much Diane!! X

Hi Mimi

So sorry to read of your struggles 😔

I'm not sure regarding the prostegene, I would have thought it would hold things off. I would say call the clinic for advice, they don't seem to be very helpful though and I'm really sorry .

As Diane said still continue your meds as you did get a positive line.

I sent you a message regarding getting a private blood test, as not sure I'm allowed to include links here
