CLOMID - Day 21 progesterone tests

Hi

I got my results back today - 29. WTF does that mean?!!?!? That's all the receptionist could give me. 29 what? Onions, marshmallows, cows in a field?!

Have I ov'd do you think?!!?

Many thanks.

Hi Jodie
That sounds like the progesterone level if it was CD21 bloods. Different docs vary, some say it needs to be over 15 to prove you have ov'd, others (like my doc) say to be on the safe side it sould be over 30. Either way it is looking pretty positive at 29.
Im sure Eeyore will be able to tell you more. My 1st CD21 bloods was about 27 I think, so I had another one doen the next month and that was 47 so it can vary from month to month. Hopefully the clomid is doing the trick! Also, the result is only accurate if you have a 28ish day cycle, as the progesterone needs to be measured 7 days after ov, so if your cycle is longer or shorter than 28 days, this date will vary.
Good luck hun

Hiya hun

Progesterone is the hormone that causes the uterine lining (endometrium) to ripen and mature for embryo implantation. You may hear this referred to as a poor luteal phase. A very low progesterone, say less than 10 indicates that you probably did not ovulate in that cycle; between 10 and 17 you ovulated but would not implant and therefore not get a pregnancy, even if you produce an embryo; 17 - 23 you will implant if it is a good embryo, but the lining will probably be too immature to provide the right environment to sustain implantation and embryo/foetal growth such that you may miscarriage either very early on, or have a difficult and unstable early pregnancy with perhaps bleeding then go on to have a miscarriage.

If the level is over 25 you are out of the danger range in that particular cycle, but values can vary from month to month so you are safer to be over 30, with values over 40 being common.

So no onions or marshmallows hun, you ovulated perfectly!

Well done then Jodie - I knew Eeyore would know whats what! Sounds like you have ov'd after all (either that or there really are 29 onions inside you....)
