In brief: 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 :).

In brief: Progesterone levels

We do not find it helpful to measure Progesterone as most of our patients utilize vaginal Progesterone which is taken up by the uterus and only very small amounts enter the circulation.
