I am new to the board and gratefull to find all of you. I started clomid last month and am going in for a pregnancy test tomorrow. I ahd a progesterone level done last week and it was 85. They said they like to see it over 20. The nurse said that where mine was 85, it was a good sign but not a gurantee. Has anyone had there progesterone level checked at day 21 and had a high level, and weren't pregnant? I tested at day 9 and it was negative and have been too chicken to test since.
I am not sure about progesterone levels being a sign of pregnancy. I did find this little tid bit on the net.
If there's a pregnancy, the progesterone levels during pregnancy continue being produced primarily in the ovaries during the first trimester.
The progesterone levels in early pregnancy ordinarily DOUBLES or TRIPLES during the first several weeks of pregnancy. And, of course, it should be produced EVERY DAY during pregnancy (in the regular menstrual period, progesterone is produced at ovulation and for about 14 more days).
By the end of the first trimester, the placenta takes over progesterone production.
