Hi,
I am expecting a baby in November. I just had a miscarriage last December. I had another miscarriage 4 years ago, before getting pregnant w/ my 2 children. W/ my last miscarriage my progesterone was 16 this time it is in the 20's but had a slight drop. Do any of you have experience w/ this? here are my levels:
last Friday hcg: 112 and progesterone 20.5 {at 3 weeks 5 days)
this Monday hcg: 461 and progesterone 23.9 (at 4 weeks 1 day)
this Wed. hcg 1598 and progesterone 23.5 (at 4 weeks 3 days)

thank you.

Progesterone in Pregnancy When Normal Values What Level Means Mid-Luteal Phase 5+ ng/ml As mentioned above, a level of 5 indicates some kind of ovulatory activity, though most doctors want to see a level over 10 on unmedicated cycles, and over 15 with medications. There is no mid-luteal level that predicts pregnancy. First Trimester 10-90 ng/ml Average is about 20 at 4 weeks LMP, and 40 at 14 weeks LMP. It is important to note that while a higher progesterone level corresponds with higher pregnancy success rates, one cannot fully predict outcome based on progesterone levels. Progesterone supplementation is unlikely to help if started after a positive pregnancy test.

My doctor wanted my progesterone to be above 15 (I think...or somewhere around there-lol) Anyways, I know your numbers would have made him happy!

Congrats on the good #!!

Thank you. I am just so nervous I will go back to retest in two weeks and the number will have dropped. Thanks for the replies though, every little bit of reassurance helps.

I know how easy it is to worry. I worried for a few weeks because my Dr said my levels were high enough that I didn't need extra progesterone.

My progesterone levels were a bit of a worry at the beginning of this pregnancy. They went up and down and even got down to 13 at one point (mine were never as high as yours). I never went on supplements and everything turned out okay. So, even if it does go down a bit, don't panic too much...it doesn't mean its all over. Good luck!

I think your levels sound great . When I was 4 weeks they tested mine and they were 18 and they said that was fine. I would not worry unless the fall below 15 I think it is !!

Hi,
I'm still in limbo here...they retested today at 5 weeks 3 days and the hcg is 16,893 and the progesterone dropped to 18.9. I am confused on how the hcg shot up so much in a week and that the progesterone is dropping. Any insight? They are going to do an ultrasound tomorrow, but I am besides myself after just having a d&c in December.

Any info will be so very appreciated.
thanks
