Ovulation pain on CD13 but low 7DPO Progesterone at 5.4

Hi there,

I am new on this board but very old in the ttc world. I've been ttc since 2007, had a m/c at 8 weeks a year and a half ago. I have normal 27-28 day cycles and I think I am ovulating as I get the ovulation pain on one side every month around CD12-CD14, EWCM (not as abundent as used to be before my m/c). This cycle I had the ovulation pain on CD12, but couldn't find my LH surge, even though I tested twice a day from CD10-18. I did a serum progesteron test at 7DPO (CD 22) at it was very low at 5.4. Did anyone exprience this level of progesterone and came to get pregnant or knew that ovulation took place. Can I only rely on ovulation signs like mucus and ovulation pain if OPK negative?? I did not chart this month, unfortunately. Thanks a lot for your response.

None of our tests are perfect. Either you did not ovulate this month or the test was wrong. Most months things will make more sense. Good luck, let us know how things are going.
