Where your progesterone levels should be at 4 weeks? I had my levels done yesterday and they were 11.1 which seems kind of low to me. I did read the sticky about this, but the 1st trimester starts at 9 and ends at 47, that is a wide range and I am definitely at the lower end. The sticky also says that during your luteal phase your progesterone could be up to 28, which I am no where near........

Any thoughts?

Thanks so much!! Sorry, I am trying not to obsess, but I can't help it, worry, worry, worry

Thought maybe if I had something to compare it to, then I could tell if it was truly low or on target. Any one have to use suppositories b4? If so what were your levels?

Thanks again!!!!!!!

you are pregnant so that means your progesterone was good enough to get you this far..i know of many women whose progesterone was around 10, 11, 12, 13 etc. plus it fluncuates throughout the day so right now it could be 18 or something. I took suppositories and im sure half of the ladies here have also. what is your dr. saying?

My prog levels hovered around 13.7 for most of the 1st trimester. I was on prog supp's until 13 weeks. It's true that your levels fluctuate during the day. Will your dr be putting you on supp's?

My Dr. said that the readings were in the first trimester and that he woud fax the results to my ob.....that was about it, I had blood drawn today also, so I will get those results tomorrow I think......Then they are doing them again 5/1.

Ok, I wasn't sure how fast they should progress, I know the HCG should double, but I wasn't sure with the progesterone, I haven't spoken to my OB yet, I am going to give him a call tomorrow.

congratulations on your pregnancy! It is hard to say what your progesterone is doing, with just the one reading... it does fluctuate during the day, and it differs day by day... Do you have it arranged to get another progesterone reading done? I would imagine that if your dr/ob/mw was concerned, theyd' have talked to you about progesterone supplements... Maybe you could ring them & see what they say?

Mine was 35 but I'm taking prometrium. Which helps your progestrone. You might want to ask your doctor about taking that.
