Well, they have my 4dpo number = 11.4 and my 11dpo number =2.3 and somewhere along the lines, my 7dpo number is lost or not there or something. Apparently they are going to check and see if they can find where that went to from the lab. But, the woman I talked to said that my numbers look on the low side. So, hopefully they can figure something out. Of course, the doctor is not in this week, but hopefully when he IS in next week, he'll be able to give me an idea of what needs to be done and when to start progesterone, if that's what I need to do.

Fingers crossed! I hope they can find my other results, since that's the "in between" number and might give a better picture of how my numbers go as we head through that 2ww.

Hmmm, I'm not so much worried about the number at it's peak. I mean 11 is on the low end of normal but normal nonetheless. However, I dunno how I feel about the 11 DPO number. It might be normal also, I just dunno how long before AF shows that number is supposed to plummet. I have a feeling it probably is a couple days so you're probably fine. :)

I dont remember what my #'s were when I first started Progesterone.

They tested my TSH & Progesterone but I cant find what the results were, other than they were low. Even my earthy crunchy MWs gave me supplements, granted I think they gave me way too little. They only RXd 50mg suppositories 2x/day. After 2nd month I started taking an extra 50-100mg or using cream too, then after my m/c a month later, my MW said she'd give me whatever I wanted. I told her I wanted 400mg Prometrium. I was done with suppositories.

That being said I took oral Prometrium for a long time since its a lot less messy. However I did switch to 1/2 & 1/2 since Prometrium can be used oral or vaginally. I also used my natural suppository RX again. The only times I have gotten pregnant was when I was using progesterone vaginally. Its really a lot more effective when put at the source.

Hope they find your mystery #

Tee,

I've found several references for late-luteal phase Progesterone being a minimum of 3.0.

Those numbers do seem low and like Aubre said, it sounds like the low numbers along with spotting would clearly indicate

I agree with PP that you need to know what that middle number is to get the whole picture.

That's definitely interesting information about the "magic number" being 30 total. I hope they can find my middle # and get that whole picture.

Thanks everyone for your input! I still haven't heard about that 7dpo number and I really hope they can find it.
