Progesterone level question

So yesterday, CD 22, I had my progesterone levels tested. I called this morning for my results, and spoke to the girl doing her residency there she said my progesterone was 35.3 and that means I didn't ovulate yet. So then I cried. Then I went online and after doing some research it seems to me that's indicative that I ovulated. What do you think? Should I wait and call later and ask to speak to my doctor? I am always calling them, I don't want to sound annoying.

Don't worry about sounding annoying! You need to be proactive about your health & need to be given the right info. You've definitely O'd at 35 -I had a reading of 33 & that was considered high! Unless they're using some strange, different unit of measurement which is highly unlikely!

Anyways call back & ask for the dr. Ask what # they use to determine O...

Yeah I am going to call back tomorrow. Between my high progesterone level and my wacky OPK week, everyone keeps saying I'm pregnant! But at 9 DPO and all the confusion with my first cycle of clomid, I am definitely waiting to test.

I don't know anything about progesterone #s. Sorry. :( But I do know that the doctors are there for you, that it their job and what you pay them for. Keep us posted!

Well if it makes you feel any better, my progesterone at 7 DPO was only 11.4, and now I have a prescription for progesterone supplements. They said I O'd with that number, so surely you did too. My new doc said anything over 10 shows O. I would be happy with that number for sure!
