we have been trying to conceive for a year now with no luck. recently i have been having irregular periods that are coming more frequently (about every 18 days) we went to see a fertility specialist a month ago and he gave me provera pills to take for 13 days to help regulate my periods and make my cycle back to a normal length. while taking the pills i started another period (which i charted my temps and did ov testing which were all neg. with no temp pikes) my doctor then said to chart my next period and that if i ovulated, i had to get blood tested to see what my progesterone level was...well about 18-20 later i got another period, which on day 10 i got a positive ov test..i went for the blood work and my progesterone level was really low...i just talked to my doctor today and now he is telling me that i have to take the provera pills again, and that the periods i was having was really spotting or break thru bleeding and that my ov test was prob a false/positive...i was crushed...now i'm in for another month or two of waiting since my doctor is almost certain i'm not ovulating...sorry that was a lot to write...anyway, has anyone else had to deal with this and i am confused on what exactly counts as a period..i know i wasnt just spotting...i had to wear tampons and there was alot of clotting. i am just ready to take something to help me ovulate already (like clomid) and i just feel like our doctor is dragging his feet.

any advise or stories would be greatly appriciated!!!
