    I'm new here, but just so you can know a little bit more about me, I'm 20 years old 4'11" and weigh 86 pounds. Trying to gain weight though so hard! Anyways my husband and I have been TTC since we got married last May, with 1 chemical pregnancy back in February. Well my doctor did a progesterone test 2 weeks ago and it was 0.4!!! Which is very low, but he wants to repeat it again this cycle and if its still low then put me on Clomid. I do have a question, is my progesterone levels low due to me being 5 pounds underweight or something different?Have any of you had a problem with your progesterone levels being low?

    My progesterone levels are low, also. I only had a 7.4 after taking Femara and having an IUI. I'm not underweight so this might not be why your levels are low. My doctor is raising my mg of Femara this month so I'll have a stronger ovulation.
