Hey girls! I posted something like this yesterday but I didn't get a response, so I'm hoping I can get some help tonight because I am so confused! I tried googling this, but I still haven't found a clear answer.

Ok, my doc wants me to come in for my progesterone draw on CD21 to see if I Oed...which is Wednesday. However, I got my positive OPK on CD17, so if I O'd at all it probably wasn't until CD17-18, which would make me 2dpo-ish. Should I call and re schedule my blood work for later? I know it's suppose to be 7dpo... Idk why my dr wants CD21. When is the earliest I can have it? Would 5DPO work? Or would it need to be at least 7??

Thank you girls!!!!!

You are right... CD21 would be WAY off. I would def. call and tell them you did not have a positive until later.

So you think I should go next week? Monday ill be CD26, I'm worried they will tell me that's too late... If I go Friday I will be CD23, but then that may be too early??

They usually do CD 21 because they see CD 14 as the normal O date which is not true.. I would go in at 7DPO if at all possible but if it falls on a sunday then you should be okay with a monday draw.

Yes, the whole idea around a CD21 draw is based on the idea of a CD14 ovulation. So you ideally would do your progesterone draw about a week after your actual ovulation, which is why it it's a good idea to reschedule so your results can be accurate. Like, you don't want your Dr saying your levels are to low when they are actually normal for a few days post ovulation. But to be honest if it were going to be a big issue, like they won't reschedule or they want to cancel testing this cycle or something, I would just keep your original appt. And expect slightly lower progesterone numbers and research what is normal for whatever dpo you were at the time.

Thank you ladies for the wonderful advice!! I'm going to call in the morning and see what they say. I don't think it will be an issue to go Monday morning! I want the most accurate results!

I would also call and explain the late positive OPK and see what they want you to do.
