8dpo progesterone number

Postby Allsmiles » Sun Apr 05, 2015 5:58 am

Hi Ladies,

I'm, 42 and I had my 8dpo progesterone levels checked and I think it seems low but it was not flagged as low it was 4.86. Can you tell me what you think?
I have an appointment with my obgyy on Weds, but I'm worried. I cut and pasted the results below.

Component Results
Component
PROGESTERONE 4.86 <---this was my number
WOMEN:
FOLLICULAR PHASE: 0.2-1.5
OVULATION PHASE: 0.8-3.0
LUTEAL PHASE: 1.7-27 <-----this was what stage I was in when they took it.
POSTMENOPAUSE 0.1-0.8

I would appreciate any help. Do you think it is low or high enough to support a pregnancy? I keep having chemicals and I think this might be a problem. TY :?

My ob has me on oral progesterone starting 3dpo. I don't think I can implant properly without it.

Thanks southernbelle - I went to my obgyn and he agrees too so he has written me a script. Here's hoping! :D
