clomid and progesterone levels

Postby Jettadear » Tue Mar 17, 2015 12:49 pm

I had my progesterone levels checked in 2011 before I chickened out of infertility testing. Progesterone was 11.8. After 4 more years I decided to start the process again. The doctor eventually prescribed me 50 mg clomid. First month on clomid and my progesterone came back 6.3. Should I be concerned that my levels are lower on clomid. Is it because it's 4 years later? I'm only 28. I haven't had a chance to talk to the doctor yet. Thanks to having access online to my records, now I'm left with more questions.

Dr called. They say I'm ovulating enough to create a normal cycle but not enough for the egg to be mature enough to create a baby.

Are you getting your progesterone checked on 7 DPO or on cd 21? If you're not truly around 6-8 dpo, your results could be on the low side. Just a thought....
