Progesterone levels


I'm about 13 dpo and found out I was pregnant a couple of days ago.
I was getting progesterone levels cecked throughout my TWW as my obgyn wanted to see if my body was ovulating (which thankfully it did this cycle). My progestwrone levels were as follows:

1dpo: 13.5 nmol/l
5dpo: 37.5 nmol/l
7dpo: 17 nmol/l (this one is freaking me out why did it drop?!l)
12dpo: 60nmol/l

Why would my level at 7dpo drop that much when it should have been at its peak?? Has anyone ever experienced this?
I have been put on prometrium by obgyn regardless, but that drop to 17 is really freaking me out?
Please any advice/experience would be great

I think that prog levels vary during the day, so your blood must have been drawn during a lower level stage. I wouldn't worry about this.

Thanks for the response. My obgyn put me on 200 mg prometrium I think to be on the safe side. I'm hoping it keeps my progesterone up.
