Took dexamethasone and Clomid to help ovulate. Did bloodwordk at day 22 to check progesterone level? Came back as 5. Last time was 0.4 without taking the steroid. Been spotting a little bit for 3 days and bad acne. Did I ovulate and could I be pregnant?
Yes, maybe: A serum Progesterone level over about 1.5 in the second half of the cycle virtually guarantees ovulation. A single luteal level however can't be used to accurately say how 'good' an ovulation is, that's a common misunderstanding. Could you be pregnant? Maybe, good luck! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
