i took 100mg of clomid this cycle and my progesterone just came back at 21. im so upset. it was 58 back in may on just 50mg..im sure it should be better on 100mg than 21. im so discouraged i want to scream. i have 0 pg symptoms except some cm i usually dont have this time of the cycle which is probably just something else to throw me off -_-

:dothug: My progesterone was 27 with this one. My doc likes it to be over 20, but some are happy with 15. A friend of mine was a 9 when she got pg with her newest son. With supplements and lots of doc visits, she delivered a healthy boy. So try not to fret. 21 isn't a bad number.

thank you. its just so hard to stay positive when there is ALWAYS something pulling ya towards negativity. I actually have some prometrium supplements that im tempted to start, just incase im pregnant. But i dont like messing with things that im not instructed to :blush:

21 sounds fine to me. It doesn't mean that you are not pg. Try to stay positive!

Understand. And starting the prometrium too early can actually prevent implantation, so best to wait. If doc does have you supplement, the suppositories are much more effective than the oral progesterone. Progesterone has a really short half-life (how long it takes to break down in your body), so using it vaginally gives you more time to absorb it. When you take it orally, it has to process through your blood stream and you don't benefit from it as much as when you go direct.

thanks margo.


and i didnt know that. they had me on 300mg of it a day when i was pregnant last time. if she suggests it again ill request the suppositories..and those go in the vagina?

Kathryn-I noticed that you said prometrium can prevent impantation if taken to early. I am actually on prometrium now from CD17 until I test. Now I am really worried. I ovulated monday which was CD18. So I wonder if I should call and ask should I be taking it straight through. Also, my progesterone was low to begin with, what if I take it and then stop. Would it be enough to sustain the pregnancy?

Danielle, I was told anything over a 15 meant you ovulated and could be pregnant. Your first numbers were super high, but that doesn mean you will only conceive if your numbers are that high! Hang in there, youll get your baby, I know you will!

Daniellea22 October 27th, 2006 07:09 PM

thanks steph. im just not so sure anymore. Its so sad that something thats supposed to be so natural is so hard to accomplish :unsure:

srs October 27th, 2006 08:22 PM

Sorry it's so frustrating. If it makes you feel better, my progesterone at 6wks pg came back 18.7, and not only was I definitely pg, but everything is still fine. Hang in there. :dothug:

Ethans_Mommy October 27th, 2006 10:35 PM

Danielle, you will be fine! I remember having those days too, but I am so glad now that I never gave up! I thought at times for sure Ethan was destined to be an only child, but he is a great big brother and Mikey will be too!

Daniellea22 October 28th, 2006 06:19 AM

thanks sara :wub:

and thanks again steph..i just hate these darn holidays man..it feels 50x more depressing to be so empty(literally) this time of year :(

I know that at my specialist they only measure up until 20 because anything over that they consider good so I wouldn't worry at all. And like Steph said just because it was higher one month doesn't mean that was how high it needs to be for you to conceive....I know its hard but don't give up!!!!

soontobemommyto3 October 29th, 2006 01:57 PM

awww sweetie. I had zero pregnancy symptoms with Sadie. I had no m/s and my bbs didn't get sore until the 2nd trimester. I had horrible m/s with my other three pregnancies.

Hang in there. I am praying you get pregnant soon.

The two week wait is awful. Good luck
