Girl! The subject of this thread is te-totally wrong! That is a PERFECT level for Clomid and there are women in early pregnancy that don't have a 17 progesterone level. You don't need the supplements. You'd only be wasting them and you don't need to second guess your RE. Your level is great!

For some reason I thought that a level in the 20s was good. Ok, I will stop manufacturing things to be stressed about. :0 Thank you!

Chelle - I found this info. Think it is true?

"Progesterone is the hormone that causes the uterine lining (endometrium) to ripen and mature for embryo implantation. You may hear this referred to as a poor luteal phase. A very low progesterone, say less than 10 indicates that you probably did not ovulate in that cycle; between 10 and 17 you ovulated but would not implant and therefore not get a pregnancy, even if you produce an embryo; 17 - 23 you will implant if it is a good embryo, but the lining will probably be too immature to provide the right environment to sustain implantation and embryo/foetal growth such that you may miscarriage either very early on, or have a difficult and unstable early pregnancy with perhaps bleeding then go on to have a miscarriage.

If the level is over 25 you are out of the danger range in that particular cycle, but values can vary from month to month so you are safer to be over 30, with values over 40 being common."

Wow...that could quite possibly be the single most ridiculous piece of garbage I have ever heard in my life and whoever posted that should be taken out back and shot. :) Really, it's total nonsense. Number one, I have been to a lot of dr's and researched the heck outta this and number two, I can name three very pg women off the top of my head that had levels less than 12 when they got their BFP's. Like I said, it's total garbage. Forget you read it. Geez, some people should not be able to post stuff online before it's approved by someone smarter than them. Grrr that makes me mad!

All I know is when we did a trial cycle with the RE to get my baselines, my prog. level was 9 so she decided to put me on supplements. I don't remember what it was when I got pg in May with the supplements so I can't compare. But I think yours sounds totally fine. I know I'll pay closer attention after I get my results from my test this Saturday. :smileyhappy:

Sorry its not the number you'd like.

I dont remember what my 7DPO level was since it was over a yr ago now...maybe Ill see if I can find my records. If you only need a 15 then I wouldn't worry. But since thats what we do I would probably supplement.

Of course this is coming from the woman who doubled her RE's rx for progesterone after last m/c :)

I just dont believe in theory of it doesnt matter.

*mindy*
