I am 29 years old and have been trying for 5 months to get pregnant with my second child. I have a history of irregular periods but I conceived my 16 month old son on my first try and delivered without complications. My periods are typically between 28 and 35 days with most being around 32. Two months ago I used an opk with negative results. This past cycle I used the clear blue easy fertility monitor. It showed low fertility through day 20. High fertility on day 21 and peak fertility days 22 and 23. Associated with this, I had fertile mucous. My progesterone was checked on day 22 (1.5) and again on day 29 and was only 1.9. I then started my period today (day 32). Is it possible that I ovulated and am having an issue with low progesterone? Is it concerning that there were only 9 days between the supposed ovulation and my period? Is it possible to not ovulate and still have somewhat normal periods? My doctor has prescribed Clomid to try this cycle so I will be starting that in a couple of days. Does Clomid typically increase progesterone after use?
