Progesterone level is 3.4


Hey lovely ladies! Not really getting help on the TTC side but wanted to see if you had low progesterone levels and still ended up with a beautiful healthy baby..

So I was on clomid this cycle.. and I had watery cm around CD 12 and had watery cm for 5-6 days... as of right now I have TONS I MEAN TONS of creamy cm.. I checked internal and it was just globs and globs of creamy cm..
I have all the pregnancy symptoms.. fatigue, cramps, nausea, sore nipples, achy breasts..

I had blood work done on CD 22 and my level of progesterone is 3.4 and she said I didn't ovulate so they're putting me on 100mg of clomid next cycle..

Has anyone had a successful pregnancy with low progesterone level?

Sorry, no experience with the progesterone part of the question (I've never had mine tested).

But I am slightly confused with your bigger question -- are you trying to figure out if you are currently pregnant?

Or are you wondering if you were to get pregnant in the future if it would be a problem?

Yes! Oh gosh the symptoms are just absolutely on target.. I can't shake this feeling that I'm pregnant.. even today when I went to the loo and after a bowel movement I wiped and there was HUGE globs of creamy lotiony CM.. That's happened when I was pregnant last time.. it's just when the nurse told me I didn't ovulate it made me wonder if I did ovulate and conceived but my progesterone level is probably just low..

Oh.. that's good to know. When did you start testing? Makes me want to test everyday because I would hate to be pregnant right now with progesterone level of a 3.4
I'm just freaking out cause 4 years ago I got pregnant on clomid but sadly I miscarried at 8 weeks.

I start testing 8dpo earliest I thought I seen a line was 9dpo and this pregnancy I seen a line at 10dpo and when I had my levels checked t days after the positive test my hcg was only 60 so it was only around 15 when I got the positive praying this is your month!

To answer your question, yes, I've went on to have healthy babies on Clomid for low progesterone...I took Clomid to produce a stronger ovulation, which will naturally create more progesterone. Once I got my bfp, I went on vaginal progesterone suppositories until I was 16 weeks along. HTH!

I had a progesterone level of 7.8 at 8 weeks with DD. I was supplementing already at that point (I start progesterone at bfp) due to a history of miscarriage but it was still pretty low. So it is possible to be pg with a low progesterone level.

However, I also know that low progesterone levels before AF are a good indication of an anovulatory cycle and you can have pg symptoms as PMS symptoms too-even if you didn't ovulate. It's so very hard to say because hormones do very weird things to our bodies...

The only thing you can do is either test or get a beta done to see what your hCG levels are and go from there. Good luck!
