Progestrone Levels

Postby Bailierae » Tue Jun 04, 2013 4:38 pm

I know you all probably get this a lot. But I just have a question regarding my beta and progestrone results.
A little background- I had an IUI on may 21st and I waited the 14 days to test. So, today 14diui I tested and got a BFP. Went in for my beta and progestrone and the following are my results
Beta 322
Progestrone 102

Do those numbers seem high? Especially the progestrone? I have read that progrestrone was one of your indicators is was twins, what were your numbers?

Thanks in advance!!

I never had my progesterone tested and only had a beta taken at 22dpo but there is a post here that has some of the ladies beta levels if you want to compare.

I think the beta number sounds normal but the progesterone may be high, yes. Definitely a possibility! I was on progesterone shots after IVF so mine was higher anyway but if you haven't been doing progesterone, that does seem above normal. Let us know what you find out!

99% of the women here who ask this, I don't really think twins are a possibility, but in your case, yes. I definitely think it's very possible you have twins in there!

Your beta is on the higher side, but for me, and many other IF moms, progesterone was definitely an indicator, too. Yours is quite high, and it was for me, too. (compared with my singleton pg's)

My betas were 226 at 13dpo, and 556 at 15dpo. Yours are comparable!
Good luck! Update us when you know more! I bet you have two in there!

Thanks ladies! I really appreciate it. I knew with my beta numbers that could mean anything it was my progestrone that had me wondering. I guess only time will tell, we will have an ultrasound in two weeks so I will for sure let you all know. We have been trying for 4 years now and had 3 miscarriages, so we will be extremely grateful for whatever we are blessed with! :-)

I don't remember my beta numbers but they were not abnormally high. My progesterone right at 4 weeks pregnant were 55 and they said that was high and one reason they scheduled the US at 6 weeks to see if maybe more than one! Def. possible you have two baking in there!

Congrats!

I was going to say it's a good possibility of twins. My 14dpiui beta was 323 and my progesterone at 12dpiui was 92. Congrats on your 2 babies!
