Progesterone Levels & Clomid Help?????
Ok so here it goes, TTC #1 since January of this year...

1st Round of Clomid (50mg) Taken CD 3-7
Positive DIGITAL OPK on CD 10
Progesterone drawn 7 days later- <0.5 (clearly a false +OPK d/t the Clomid)
CD 21 Progesterone just in case we missed something- 0.7
Kept using Digital OPKs............
CD 23 & 24 big fat smiley face +OPK's.

Seriously, this late on Clomid? I had lot's of CM and twingy cramping that whole week too. Now before the clomid my cycles were a little wack but averaged about 36 days.

I went in on CD31 (7 days past my REAL positive OPK for another Progesterone level, results were 6.6. Doc said she believes the kit was right and I most likely ovulated. We did BD'd both days I had the +OPK's and we used Preseed.

She says to just stay at the 50mg dose but I'm not sure I like the 6.6 reading. I don't think I really have any preggo symptoms. I will test tomorrow (CD37, about 12dpo) but doubt it will be a BFP with a 6.6 progesterone level at 7dpo.

What do you think??????????????????

Last thought...could my level be lower because it was so many days after the last clomid pill? I know they like it above 15 with a "medicated cycle" but is the medication still in my system that many days later?

I as well just finished my first cycle with clomid, havent seen a sign of AF yet, hopefully she stays away.

I would think that your progestrone level was low because you were so far out from the last pill.

I took mine (50mg) from day 5-9 and recieved positive OPK on day 15. which is late for me. I had a blood draw on day 23 and my level was at a 23.

My doc had said when you get further out from that the progestrone level will start dropping.

I would call your nurse or doc directly though. Ask them the questions and report back here! Best of luck to you! Hope you see a BFP soon! ;)
