I just made an appointment to do a blood test for progesterone after to mc. I just made the appointment with the receptionist without talking to my midwife, but it's occurring to me now that I'll be pre-ovulation when the appointment happens. Is that ok? I know progesterone levels rise after ovulation, but is there enough before to be accurate? I should be about a day before O.

If you want to check progesterone related to ovulation they do the test 7 days after ovulation.
