Progesterone levels: Typically when taking Clomid Progesterone levels are checked on day 21 of your menstrual cycle. A Progesterone level above 10 is consistent with ovulation.

I ve a 29-30 days cycle.Doc checked my blood progesterone level at cd23 and told i didn't ovulate this month.Does blood prog shows at cd23?24 yrs old.

Yes: Progesterone rises in blood within 3-5 days after ovulation, so if 29-30 is your usual cycle length, then cd 23 would be accurate. Do you know how high it was? I've observed many docs over-or-under call based on progesterone, if it was greater than about 2.0 it is ovulatory, if below 1.5 probably not. ...Read more

Anything possible: But if your HCG was 2100 that is a level u can see with misc, the key is that with a misc it will be dropping and will not see a htbeta on us or a sac or an abnormal sac in the uterus if earlier, and always want to make sure u are not dealing with an ectopic preg that your doc can determine. ...Read more
