Day 21 Progesterone Levels...HELP
WisGirl24 posted:
I'm looking for some input.

Two months ago, when I had a day 21 progesterone blood test done, my level was 11.4. My specialist told me anything over 10 meant I had ovulated. That was on a non-medicated cycle.

Last month, when I had a day 21 progesterone blood test done, my level was 15.0. This was on 7.5 mg of Femara and my doctor said that they like to see levels at 15 or above for medicated cycles. This was also my first month of taking the progesterone supplement, Crinone. I was told that the progesterone supplement wouldn't have any effect on my blood progesterone test.

This month, I had the progesterone test done on day 20 because I know for sure I ovulated on day 13. My level was a 33.7! This cycle I also did 7.5mg of Femara and am taking the Crinone. What are your thoughts on the elevated level? I know progesterone tests can't rule out/in pregnancy, but they can be a sign.

I am trying not to get too hung up on symptoms because last month, I was convinced I was pregnant and everything just happened to be side effects from the Crinone. But, I do feel really fatigued, I got up to go to the bathroom 3 time last night, my chest is sore and I'm feeling a little crampy on and off...nothing too severe, however. I am 9 dpo today.
