Got progesterone results (day 9 past ovulation) a few days ago....and a BFP on day 16 past ovulation (and some implantation spotting day 14 past ovulation). Hoorah after 2 years of trying!!!
Anyway, the progesterone was 63. It was a natural cycle. Now the wheels are turning...wondering if there's a chance of twins...or if maybe I miscalculated my ovulation and it actually happened a bit sooner than I thought (and had already implanted by the time I got my prog. checked...).
Anyone else have this high a number, and what does it mean?
I don't think high progesterone is linked with twins. It pulses through out the day, so any one number is not the be-all, end-all.
In a natural cycle (ie,no clomid or anything), a progesterone number over 25 is linked 95% to a viable intrauterine pregnancy, ie a baby at the end of this!
After 4 m/c, our is here!
I thought I had read that high progest is linked to multiples.
My first progest at 12ish dpo was 48, iirc. Mw later said that made her suspect twins (which I am.having)
I don't know when you last did o stims, but I believe I was told that at least clomid can have an effect even a cycle or two after taking it dt long elimination time. Dont quote me tho, just a thought.
but a lesson must be lived in order to be learned.
and the clarity to see and stop this now
that is what i've earned (a.d.)
Ladies, thank you so much for your replies! The 95% success with progesterone over 25 is very reassuring - I had been trying to find info like this. Will be meeting with a midwife soon for initial visit.
I had taken clomid (50 mg, then 25 mg) for a shortened luteal phase the 2 cycles previous to this unmedicated one in which I conceived. I had decided to take a break to observe what would happen in a "normal" cycle, compare notes with the clomid cycle. I also had a lighter period on the clomid so I suspected the clomid thinned my lining - however, interestingly the RE I had started to consult with did not feel that clomid would thin a lining right away...and that tended to happen over time instead. So maybe the clomid was still having an impact?
The other "mysterious" thing is that this conception happened during a full moon. I guess all the stars are finally aligning :)
I thought really high HCG was a better indicator?
With DS the nurse was convinced he was twins because of high HCG, but I had low progesterone...
Obviously it was just one.
