I still feel like mine is low.
I have done cd 21 bloodwork three times now. Twice with meds.
#1 was 7
#2 was 10.1
#3 was 14.5

Everything I can read suggests a level 15 plus for a medicated cycle and 10 plus for a normal cycle. They just want at least 10. I just don't know anymore. My body seems to be responding and kicking into gear for what it should do and pg or not that's good right?

Like yours the first doctor I saw before the RE wanted it to be 10 so the last two would be normal though maybe closer to the lower end of it. It sounds like your body is responding to it. Have you ever asked about taking progesterone?

I am taking the gel starting on cd 21. It certainly seems like my body is doing something and 14.5 is much better in my book than 7.
Does the trigger effect progesterone levels at all? Like cause a stronger o and thus better progesterone level? Or does it not really matter?

I'd still ask about progesterone supplementation even though your numbers are normal (on the low side of normal though). It really can't hurt.

my RE said that anything over 10 is what they want to see; i read too that medicated should be higher; but, last month i had a 15 w trigger shot and they were very pleased with that ; i think you are fine, except for the 7

I'm not sure I understand. I am doing the cronine 8% gel at night starting cd 21 until af shows. Should I ask about doing it more often or do another type (ie injection). #1 was a normal cycle . I will ask the my ob or nurse when I call again- I just want to make sure I know what I'm talking about lol!
