Ovulation/Progesterone ?

I am very new to charting. CD1 was Oct. 5. My doctor scheduled Day 3 labs on Oct. 7 and Day 21 (Progesterone) on Oct. 25. My progesterone level was 9.08. I was expecting AF Nov. 2 which would have been a 28 day cycle. Well, I got AF on Oct. 31. I'm wondering if a short cycle meant that I ovulated earlier than I thought and that's why my progesterone level was lower than 10.

Thanks, Susan, for the thoughtful response. Briefly, I am 44 yo and my partner is 39 yo. I have three grown children. He has none. We are planning a tubal reversal in Feb. 2010. I thought it might be practical to see where I stand hormonally so we would have a better understanding of our chances of conceiving post-TR. All my hormone levels were "within normal limits" but my progesterone, as I said, in the earlier post, was a little low. So, my ObGyn sent me to an RE who I saw today. It was interesting. He basically said the labs, although very positive,
