Brief Answer:
Low progesterone production

Detailed Answer:
Hi

I understand your concerns about low progesterone.

Since you have low progesterone hormone it is better to take hormone supplement tablets like duphaston or Susten daily for 10 days after ovulation.

This happens when your body progesterone is lower and not producing sufficient progesterone.

Let me know if you have any questions.

Dr. Soumya.
