progesterone is usually cd21 or 7 dpo. I'm not sure if they do the estrogen at that time or not. FSH I think is CD3...

I did estrogen with my CD3 labs last time... Progesterone is 7DPO/CD21
Stopped BCP & began TTC in January 2013- no ovulation, no cycles for 3 months
May-July 2013- provera cycles with no ovulation
August/September 2013-50 mg clomid cycles with no ovulation
October 2013- SA revealed low motility--referred to RE
January 2014- DHs repeat SA came back "normal"! I was diagnosed with PCOS
February 2014- IUI #1 on Valentine's Day with 2 mature follicles- BFN
March 2014- BCP to clear up cysts
April 2014- IUI #2 on 4/9/14 with 3 mature follicles and 3 catching up! BFP at 10dpiui!!!!!! So thankful!!! Beta #1 @ 13 DPO- 167; Beta #2 @ 15 DPO- 384!

Estrogen needs to be done on CD3. Progesterone is usually done with CD3 bloodwork as well, but to check for ovulation it is done at 7DPO (which may or may not be CD21).

Cd 21 could be off for you if you don't ovulate on CD 14, which many people don't. If you ovulated later, even by a day, you'll want to delay your test till 7 days after.

I ovulate usually on Day 12, sometimes earlier, which of course is bad, but my test needs to be run 2 days earlier on CD 19, not 21
