    Hi ladies. I had a progesterone test and anticardiolipin test done at 8DPO and have just been given the results.

    The anticardiolipin one was "normal" which I assume means it wasn't a problem, but the progesterone test was 79.8. It was only the receptionist I spoke to so couldn't get any more info, but anyone know if that is "normal"?

    I found this which suggests mine is high for mid-luteal phase but I am DEFINITELY not pregnant:

    Males: 0.3 - 1.2 ng/mL
    Females:
    Follicular phase 0.2 - 1.4 ng/mL
    Luteal phase 3.3 - 25.0 ng/mL
    Mid-luteal phase 4.4 - 28.0 ng/mL
    Postmenopausal less than 0.7 ng/mL
    Pregnant
    1st trimester 11.2 - 90.0 ng/mL
    2nd trimester 25.6 - 89.4 ng/mL
    3rd trimester 48.4 - 422.5 ng/mL

    Any ideas??

    79.8 is a good result however progesterone is not a marker for pregnancy.

    It could be you ovulated two eggs, although anything up to 100 is reasonable for 1 egg. I dont think you have anything to worry about. x

    Thanks! I think I have cracked it though - the measurement she gave me (I think) was in nmol/l and the ones I posted are in ng/ml. Apparently 79.8 nmol/l equates to 26.3 ng/ml which puts me back in the right range!

    Phew! I think that indicates I did ovulate so thats good news I guess!!

    Oh no! Not those weird measurements! I got my ovarian reserve units in the wrong measurement and I cried all weekend thinking my eggs were shrivelled up and then on the sunday night I realised the units were different! Joy and rapture, I was cartwheeling round the living room!

    26.3 is a good number too. XXXX
