In another post, you said that when testing for progesterone, they want to see if you O'd on CD 21. Do they have to test you on CD 21 to figure that out?

Edited to say that I feel dumb now - I just re-read what you wrote and I misunderstood. I now understand that you were saying they usually want to test you on CD 21 to see if you O'd that month. So, now I'm wondering why CD 21? My doctor gave me strict instructions to go get tested on CD 24...is it going to be too late, or does a few days not matter?

I went threw that also it has something to do about checking your levels and it HAS to be done that day. They need the progesterone level for that day.

Isn't the CD based on a 28 day cycle? In other words, 7 DPO. Why don't they say that instead of assuming everyone is on a 28 day cycle?

Oh, ok thanks Donna. That makes more sense because my cycles are typically 30-32 days long.

Maybe it is based on 28 day cycle. That has to be it. Mine is pretty regular so I guess that is why day 21. Good luck

Yes I hate that Dr.s assume that everyone has a 28 day cycle... especially when they try to determine your EDD. You would think that the length of your cycle would be a pretty big factor there.
