Ttc-progesterone low. Dr referring me to a specialist. What are treatment for this? Is this uncommon? 27 yrs old with a 7 and 5 year old.

When?: Depends on when during cycle it is measured. Prior to ovulation levels are low, typically less than 1 to 2 ng/ml. Soon after ovulation levels will be greater than 2 ng/ml and up to 25, 30 or more. In the second half of the cycle (luteal phase) Progesterone is secreted in pulses and levels vary widely; I therefore think the idea of 'normal' doesn't help much. ...Read more

What causes a female to have low e2 and progesterone? What is the treatment testosterone normal. E2 less than 21 progesterone. 6 on day 2 of cycle sm

Normal: The levels of estrogen and Progesterone you wrote are very normal for a cycle day 2. Your Estradiol will slowly rise to about 150-250pg around the time of ovulation and your Progesterone doesn't increase until after you ovulate. If your cycles are regular, then those numbers are ok. ...Read more

IVF Progesterone: Progesterone (p4) levels after ivf are often confusing. We often use vaginal Progesterone which goes directly into the uterus and then does not show up in the blood stream. Intramuscular p4 gives great blood levels but the injections hurt. We usually do not measure p4 levels when we use vaginal p4 because the numbers do not help and only cause worry - particularly if you read the internet :). ...Read more
