Ive been seeing a specialist for 3 cycles now. My first cycle my prog. was very low at 2.4. The next cycle it was at 7. And now this cycle it was at 13. This is good that it is raising right? Could this mean I could possibly be pregnant?
I hear when you are pregnant your progesterone levels double. I am currently on Day 22 of my cycle.. so I still have some time to wait yet.
Bloodwork on day 21 is typically checking to see if you ovulated. This is assuming you ovulate around the "normal" day 14. I'm not sure what your levels need to be to indicate that you have ovulated. I think that day 21 is still pretty early to show pregnancy, unless you ovulated early, like day 10ish. Did you doctor call to give you those #'s?? Were you able to ask for any info from him/her??
hi there. my cycle is short, I usually ovulate around day 12/13 and i have my period no later than day 25. I try to get as much information out of the nurse as I can, but I feel like they never really tell me that much. I kinda feel weird slight cramps going on the past 2-3 days, but no period yet.
Hmm. Maybe try to Google what Progesterone levels should be after ovulating, and if pregnant?? I'm not sure...my day 21 bloods showed that I didn't ovulate. Obviously, since here I am on day 50 with nothing!
I've been TTC since December, went off bcp in October. Cycles have been between 37 days - 61 days. Going back to the doctor next month, I'm thinking at that point I'll be given something to help me ovulate.
Hi there! I am on day 31 of my 45 day cycle. I ovulated this last week and today I went in for my first blood test to see my levels as well. I don't have any idea what the range should be, but I am hoping to get a call from my doctor tomorrow so she can tell me i ovulated (cross your fingers). I saw some values online, but I don't know how accurate these websites are. I just know that the values get higher when you are in days 14-28 (of a normal cylce) and even higher when you are pregnanct. I think the best bet is to talk to your doc about your results! i wish you well and hopefully you get a bfp!
the inconsistency could have to do with just going off bc in October. I know it can take up to a year for your cycle to regulate after going off the pill.
doesnt hurt to make an apt with the dr./specialist for a follow up and to see if she can help regulate your cycle. I know chlomid is used alot nowadays to help with producing follicles and ovulating. Maybe your dr. can do a follicle study on you - this will help you pinpoint when your most fertile time is. I am having this done and it has really helped me. I havent gotten pregnant yet (obviously), but I feel like Im working towards my goal. I thought I was ovulating day 10, but turns out (after the follicle study) that I am ovulating day 13. I still have some obstacles to overcome (low progesterone and a shortened luteal phase), but I am hopeful I will get there. and you will too!
Yup I'm going back Sept 27 (day before my bday, yuck!). When I was there in June she told me to chart for 3 months and come back. One quick look at my charts and she'll see that I'm not ovulating! My bloodwork showed nothing abnormal, other than not having ovulated yet. So that's good at least!
What's a follicle study?? Looking at your follicles at different points in your cycle??
Im unsure what the progesterone level needs to be to indicate ovulation. My dr. told me that they like to see progesterone at a level of 15 on day 21. anything lower than 15 means they will supplement with progeterone if pregnancy happens.
goodluck SXB with your levels and testing!! Im going on my 3rd cycle w a specialist and I can tell you this - the #'s change each cycle. So if you get bad #'s the first time, they can do alot to tweak things and get your numbers looking better. My dr. put me on Vitamin D (because I was low) and ever since then my #'s have been better. Not sure if it is considence ?? But i will take it!
