I don’t have my blood numbers back, but what I DO have is a script for provera, to begin tonight. So, alas, my body did not kickstart post-miscarriage, but instead kept on its usual maddening way.
I DO think that follicle tried to become an egg. Last week was far too ‘ovulatey’ for my estrogen not to be high, but, as I suspect has happened many a time before, it didn’t quite pan out: no LH surge? Not high enough estrogen? Egg pooped out halfway through developing? I’ll never know, but I do think this happens to me each time I have an annovulatory cycle. I get close, but then the egg quietly gives up and recedes.
The provera will put me on the same timeline I was debating if I had ovulated and was progesterone-supporting to avoid our trip complicating next cycle. So that is good. All in all, we were never going to get pregnant this cycle regardless, with Pea out of town for so long, so it doesn’t really matter how it ends. I’m not sure a provera-period is really much different from a progesterone-derived one, so maybe this makes no matter at all.
