My husband and I have been TTC for just about a year now. I have PCOS and don't ovulate on my own , so I've been on Clomid and Provera. Until this month I'd not ovulated on Clomid (gone from 50mg to 150mg over six months), but I had a super dark OPK this month. On CD22, I had my progesterone drawn, but it wasn't ready when I saw my OB/GYN the next day.
Today I had an appointment with my PCP, and asked him to look at my progesterone levels. He's a nice guy, but I don't think he knows anything about progesterone, so he said he "thought I ovulated, but maybe you should ask your OB/GYN." (They're in the same hospital network so they can both see my charts at all times.) I looked at it and the range guidelines were from .80 - 3.50 (or so). My progesterone was .84, which is borderline, but the best I've seen!
My question: Everything I've read about progesterone says you need to have 10 or above? Am I getting excited about nothing? I think perhaps the levels are measured differently than mine were, but I was within the range (barely) of normal. I'm waiting for my OB/GYN to call back, because if I didn't ovulate, then I'm to see an endocrinologist to talk about going on Femara. She's taking a while to call back though, and her nurse wouldn't tell me anything about what the results meant. Any ideas? I'm kind of going crazy here....I just want to ovulate to have the CHANCE to conceive!
