On chlomid 50mg I had a progesterone level test done at cycle day 21 and nurse said my level was a 7.5 can I still get pregnant at that level?

Yes you can: Yes, you definitely ovulated so it's still possible to get pregnant. When you check a progesterone level it measures just a single point in time. If they measured it again in 12-24 hours the result could be different. It's true though that we want progesterone to be > or = 12 for a strong ovulation. If you don't conceive they might go up on Clomid (clomiphene) dose. ...Read more

Normal: Your hcg, as you know, is completely normal. Your Progesterone is slightly on the low side. It's possible that your ob/gyn will want to supplement your progesterone? Have a discussion with your doctor about this. Best of luck. ...Read more

Didn't ovulate: A Progesterone level that low simply means you have not ovulated - at least not within about 3 days before the level was drawn. It's possible you might ovulate in the next few days, but usually i cancel Clomid (clomiphene) cycles if not ovulation by day 25. Your doctor may do differently. Pregnancy chances are quite low at this point, i'm sorry to say. ...Read more

My blood test came back with an hCG level of 76 and a progesterone level of 31.6. What does that mean?

Early pregnancy: An HCG level can indicate a very early pregnancy - as long as the level continues to rise (roughly doubling every 48-72 hours), then that is a good sign that the pregnancy is progressing normally. A Progesterone level > 25 is generally a good sign of a healthy pregnancy. ...Read more

Prog level: Should not make a difference if progesterone is checked on d20 instead of d21. Keep in mind, progesterone levels can fluctuate. Best to check more than one level. ...Read more

Want P4 higher: While it's true that the ideal peak progesterone (P4) level is 12 or above, it's still possible to get pregnant on a cycle with a P4 level of 7.5. Your doctor should consider increasing your dose to 100mg next time. The fact that your home pregnancy test is negative pretty much confirms that you are not pregnant. ...Read more

Ask: Usually Clomid (clomiphene) is prescribed to help women who are not ovulating and are actively trying to get pregnant. There are other medications as well so schedule a follow up visit with your doctor and go over the plan of care in detail. ...Read more

My hCG went from 11000 to 49000 at 7 weeks. Should it be higher than that? My previous test was at 6 weeks pregnant. My progesterone level is 79

My hCG went from 11000 to 49000 at 7 weeks. Should it be higher than that? My previous test was at 6 weeks pregnant. My progesterone level is 79

That is about right: During very early pregnancy, the hgc rises/doubles in about 48-72 hours. Say your is about 72 hours=3 days. 11000 doubles to 22000, then again doubles another 72hrs, thus =44000, with 5000 left for the 7th day; just an estimate. Just remember, everyone is different. Follow doc's advice. Congrats on the pregnancy and best of luck to you. ...Read more

My Progesterone level was 1.2, this was checked in the morning 3 days post ovulation. Day prior to ovulation ultrasound showed a 16mm follicle which was 4 days prior to test. I'm concerned its low, is this too low to conceive? Did I ovulate?

Ovulation testing: Ovulation testing should be done in the midluteal phase typically 7 days after ovulation. Testing 3 days after is a bit odd and makes it very hard to interpret the result. I would see an Obgyn and schedule official ovulation testing. These tests must be done in a particular way to get interpretable results ...Read more

Cervix seems very sensitive during early pregnancy (4 wks). Brown spotting and bleeding after sex. Is a test of progesterone level needed?

Cervix seems very sensitive during early pregnancy (4 wks). Brown spotting and bleeding after sex. Is a test of progesterone level needed?

No: The cervical blood vessels can be very near the surface. They are more engorged with blood and become more fragile due to the pregnancy and increased estrogen. The cervix always seems more "touchy" and cramps during pregnancy. All of this is normal. But you should be checked to make sure there is no other cause for your bleeding. ...Read more

Patience...: A urine pregnancy test, done correctly, gives a reliable result 3 weeks after "sex" (3 weeks after when conception might have occurred), or 1 week after missing a period. If done sooner, a positive result is likely real but a negative result may be due to testing too soon, and thus lead to a repeat test. If a woman gets her normal regular period, then she is not pregnant, and a test is not needed. ...Read more
