well depression and anxiety can play into having irregular ovulation even THOUGH you have a normal regularly occurring period.
Ok, how does that work then if my cycles are regular?
so if you are having depression - this SHOULD be treated because you might then be able to ovulated and using the antidepression medication that you said - would be safe to use
From what I've read anxiety usually causes a delay in ovulation, I understood that to mean that my period would be late. Mine seem to be regular though
well anxiety/ depression can cause you NOT to ovulate even though you have a period -
so treat the depression and you might find that You can then get pregnant.
Ok. Is it worth me having the 21 day test then? As I have depression my progesterone levels might be low?
no, the 21 day test honestly is worthless - I never use it
so I really suggest - treat the depression and you should be able to get pregnant-
Ok, my GP wants me to have the test so I will probably have it, but im a bit concerned if my progesterone levels are low (due to the depression maybe) I will worry more!
Well from the Ob/gyn perspective - the progesterone test really does not help
Your progesterone levels are really not helpful UNTIL you have a positive pregnancy test - so you really can not use the progesterone test.
;I wish you well
