Got my HCG results....16DPO 243....18 DPO 616!!

That's doubling every 37 hours!


My last pregnancy only doubled every 67 hours, so this is great!


However, my progesterone went from 19.7 to 17.3. I know I'm still in the good range, but I asked my doc about supplementing, just in case. Does anyone have any experience with starting progesterone? Or with dropping numbers? I know they can fluctuate in the first trimester, but seems like a silly chance to take in case dropping levels could have caused my loss last time.


Anyway, still good news to me!

I always used progesterone during my IUI cycles, which those cycles failed. I just got pregnant and they tested me at 14DPO and mine was 49.7, so they didn't offer any progesterone to me. Sorry I'm not much help at all! I would push for it though! Did they give it to you to take?

I use progesterone suppositories, but my ob doesn't test during pregnancy because she says that there's no "normal" progesterone number. So I know nothing about numbers. You can't hurt anything by supplementing though, and I believe that its what got my daughter here after two late first trimester miscarriages.

Congrats on the hcg numbers! Those are great!

I used it after an iui. I took it my last pregnancy but had a miscarriage anyway due to chromosomal abnormalities.

Those numbers are great! I, too, only started supplements two days ago so I have no real advice.

Just talked to my nurse practitioner. She said she will order me another round of tests starting tomorrow, and if my level continues to drop, we will do suppositories or pills. She said sometimes they work, sometimes they don't, but it's about the only thing they have to offer. But, she also said progesterone levels can bounce around, so there is a chance it was a temporary dip, and all is fine.

So overall, very reassuring. I love my NP. Great way to start the weekend.

I didnt get my progesterone numbers, but during an u/s for cramping/spotting we found my corpus luteum cyst was very large which can be known to cause low progesterone. They put me on progesterone suppositories right away. My drs office doesn't do injections until later in pregnancy. From my research it seems that the suppositories won't always show up in your blood test, but extra progesterone does not seem to cause any harm. Sorry I'm not much more help, but since staring my progesterone my spotting stopped and cramps are BC of my cyst :-)



Edited: I am on my cell phone and skipped a few vital words :-)

Great numbers btw!! Congrats!

Kittie, that's interesting. Last pregnancy I had a corpus luteum cyst, and it was large. Maybe same this time? I'll definitely bring it up with my NP. Thanks so much for sharing that!
