Ovulation Luteal Phase defect

Patient

Q: My partner and I are trying to have a baby its been over 2 years and no success. According to my gyno and test results my egg count is low and my endometrium lining is thin. I have had operations due to endo problems, miscarriage, abortion and abnormal cells growing. My question is I can feel ovulation pain during some months but for some reason i also can feel that pain just a couple days before my period is due. My periods are very light, my heavy day is someones light day. I only use panty liners. Last period was on 27th May and I am currently on my 27the day of my cycle. I have had a twinge pinching pain on my left side that started on and off yesterday continuing again today. No usual symptoms of a period as I get night sweats just before a period. Been very fatigued and have had a headache for a few days. Is there be a chance that I could be pregnant? (probably not) or could I have a disorder called Luteal Phase defect I just read about this. I am seeing my gyno next week but I just thought I could have some advice on what to do before I see my gyno.

Thank you

Doctor
