Dear Wanna be Mom

Certainly the history is highly indicative of ovulation dysfunction and/or persistent luteal production of progesterone. It is imperative that a careful hormone evaluation is done and monitoring be undertaken to further diagnosis this problem. It may be necessary to stimulate ovulation and in some case support the post ovulation-luteal phase in order to achieve a pregnancy.
