I look at it this way 1 is always better than 0. I started with 5 and last week when I had 49.9. Keep your chin up and ask your doc if that # is good for you. I think anything over a 5 means "O". But that can always be brought up with meds. It did for me :wink:

Clomid and cysts

Postby Angela79 » Fri Dec 22, 2006 11:03 pm

Hello ladies:

I have been trying to conceive for over 2 years now and was diagnosed with endometriosis/endometriomas and cysts in June by laparoscopy. I am on my 4th cycle with clomid- 100 mg. 2 months ago my progesterone levels were over 30 on day 21, this month it was 7.6. How can this be?

My doctor had once told me that if i developed cysts this could keep the Clomid from working. Has anyone been told this and could this may be the reason my levels dropped? I have been hurting around my ovaries and i am prone to cysts anyways. I left a message for my Dr. to call me, but i haven't heard from them yet. They are talking about raising me to 150 mg. Can you be at 7.6 and still be pregnant?

Thanks!

Angela

Progesterone level

Postby KGIRL25 » Sun Jan 07, 2007 1:03 pm

Hi, I'm a newbie here, and am so grateful to have a place where I can meet other ppl going through the same thing, and can share stories.

I was diagnosed w/PCOS June 2006, and started 1500 mg of Fortmet in September. My first round of clomid was in November 2006, and I began at 50 mg taken days 5-9. My transvaginal u/s showed that I did ovulate, but my progesterone levels were low post-ovulation...a level of 10. So I was put on progesterone suppositories for the rest of my cycle. Yuck; I don't love that, but it was necessary as the side effects from the oral progesterone were too much to take.

So, my dr. upped my clomid dosage for the 2nd round taken mid-December, to 100 mg. I ovulated 3 follicles, and my progesterone level post-ovulation was at 39! So, regardless if I am preggo or not, I am happy that the progesterone levels went up. I go in for blood work and another TVUS on January 16th, so I am keeping my fingers crossed until then.

So, I am about 10 dpo, and I have been experiencing some cramping for the past 3 days, but other than that, nothing else. A little CM, but no sore breasts to speak of, which leads me to believe that I'll have to go for a 3rd try.

K, well, good luck to everyone, and I'm sure you'll hear more from me; I love this place!

clomid

Postby cassie081881 » Wed Jan 17, 2007 2:29 pm

Hi my name is Cassie and I was on the depo shot for about 2 and 1/2 years my last shot was in March of last year. I went for my annual in October and my dr thought that I should have already started my period so she started me on provera in November and I started on Dec. 4th and so then I started taking clomid and they took my prog level and it was 1.5 and so I did it all again and my prog level is now 1.2. So my dr upped the dose trying to see if it will help. I am taking provera right now and waiting to see if it makes me have a period again. I can't wait until I can get back to normal and start the O again but right now I am just frustrated with how the depo shot has tainted my body.
I am trying to stay positive and I know it will happen

mine was 19.7 on 9dpo. wish i knew what it was on day 7, but they were closed on day 7 and 8, so likely it would have been higher correct? *sigh* negative hpts at 13dpo anyway, so no happy day for me here:(

i am trying one last round. i don't think i can stand much more of this

Well, this is my first post. Me and dh have been TTC for about a year. I have been on Clomid for 5 months, I started off at 50mg for 2 months, then 100mg for 2 months, neither one of those doses made me O. Then my Dr. put me on 125mg this month. It worked, I O'd on CD15 and went in for my CD21 progesterone level bloodwork and got my results today. It was 21.9. I am so excited. I have only got extrememly low levels every other month. Like .5 and 3.5. So this is a great thing for me, at least now I know if i'm not preggo this month, that the 125mg makes me O!!!

Hi Everyone-
I am in my first month of Clomid CD 5-9 50mg. I had my first ever progesterone draw on CD 20 (5 DPO) and the result was 33.2. I had it drawn at work (I work in a Dr office) but have not talked to my RE about the result (they are closed on Tuesdays).

I assume that 33 is a good level. Does it just indicate I ovulated? Does anyone know if they use it as a guide for anything else? Or is it just to detect ovulation?
Thanks for any input.

Wow Nash! That is an awesome progesterone level, especially since this is your first month of Clomid! It took me 5 cycles to show an ovulating level! I know my nurse told me that my level 21.9 was possibly a pregnancy level! So I hope you have a BFP coming your way!

Hi ladies...first time posting for the progesterone.....this was my 5th round of 50 mg days 5-9...but the first time my doc decided to do Prog. test...

Level was 49.2 at 5-6 dpo....not sure exactly which day WAS O...but I think it was CD 17..making me 6 dpo when they took them.

I was happy with my levels. They didn't tell me much besides I did O.....a friend of mine said I dropped more than one eggie with that number! LOL!....is there anything else you can determine with that number?

Hi Everyone,

Thought I'd join in as I just got my prog results for day 21 round 1 clomid 5-9 50mg and it came in at 96.6!!! I'm hoping that is a good sign that I'm preg?? (Also that maybe its twins??) Am very nervous & excited & quite teary all at the same time. Yet am still prepared for disappointment as it is all I have known for 2 years now.

Would love to hear what you all think.

Good luck to all those in the game!!

NM - there you are.....great results....fingers crossed for you (and me!!) There is mixed info on what prog results provide. Some say high levels indicate pregnancy & possible twin pregnancy whilst others say it is indicative of strong ovulation. We can only wait and see.

Alexia ......the nervous wreck :shock:

I have heard that too...but then some ppl's results are in the 200's and :bfn: ! :roll: So, I am just looking at it as a very good O!! I am testing Sunday....I believe you said you were testing on Sat? Am I right?

How many DPO will you be at that time? Did you ever have your Prog. checked before the clomid?

Hi NM

Yes I did have it checked but can't remember it was so long ago. It was 27 last year when I tried clomid for one month. If this cycle is a bust I will get all the info from my doc next Fri as I'll be seeing him. Yes I'll be testing Sat at 10dpo with an ept.

I'm sooooo hoping this is it. My obst/gyn sounded confident but am trying not to get too ahead of myself until I see a BFP!! He said that the high number could be indicative of pregnancy and wished me luck!!!

Can't stand the wait

Alexia :)
