Hello ladies - I thought some of you might know here.....

I'm on thyroid medication and progesterone suppositories. I went to get my progesterone checked yesterday (CD 26) and my progesterone is already 31.3!!! Since the progesterone suppositories do not show up in the blood - that means my progesterone is way higher than that. I wonder if my doctor will tell me to stop taking the suppositories??? I bet he won't!! Is it possible to get too much progesterone?? Since there is no way how much I am getting now....

If they have you on it then it would be for a reason and the levels they find acceptable can vary based on what medications you're taking. The last time my progesterone was checked on CD 21 (6 DPO) it was 32.

that's defintiely a nice solid level. One of the things they like about the suppositories is that it gets it so close to the uterus, into the area that needs it, and that can help with implantation issues, etc. in some cases.

I don't think you can overdo progesterone. My primary RE's office doesn't even measure progesterone, it just comes back on the computer printout as "> 40" and mine was always more than 40.
