+ OPK should I take 200mg or wait 2 days to take progesterone? Will progesterone hurt/stop ovulation if taken the first day of +opk or can it help.

+ OPK should I take 200mg or wait 2 days to take progesterone? Will progesterone hurt/stop ovulation if taken the first day of +opk or can it help.

Wait longer: Generally Progesterone should be supplemented only under a doctor's supervision to prevent confusion like this. Normal Progesterone levels do not rise until 3-5 days after lh surge, so starting earlier than this wouldn't really make sense. It's not likely to suppress ovulation, but will make the endometrium 'over mature' if started this early, which may stop implantation. ...Read more

Differences in absorption of oral Progesterone would account for the uncertainty in suppression. Many ovulate, despite high doses of progesterone. You should resume normal function after discontinuation. ...Read more

Early OB US: Hopefully the repeat US in one week will show some improvement and a fetal heart beat. We are concerned when the sac seems to be collapsing that a miscarriage may be coming. The Progesterone won't hurt anything. I'm not sure what BP means but I am presuming you don't mean your Blood Pressure is 200. ...Read more
