I never had a 3 day test done on my Progesterone.
I basically showed MW my charts of 9 day LPs & they did a thyroid & some other check & they gave me 100mg progesterone. The first cycle it gave me a few days on LP, then it maybe gave me a day & Id still spot. So I upped it to 150 & also used a cream, then I had my chemical. I think I basically lost it cuz my levels were so low, as they tested me when I started spotting & I was only 17.

ANyway, after my chemical I basically told them I wanted 400mg of Prometrium. I have been on that since Dec. I finally got another + HPT in May & my progesterone was great. Too bad it was another m/c.

At any rate that amt I avg a 12 day LP which is good, but I would expect more from 400mg but Drs say that is good.

Now that you mention it I can't believe I didnt tell my Dr that reason for Clomid. DUH! I wanted to try for exactly that reason. I cant speak to its use for increasing progesterone but I have heard it does help.

Ya I dont know what I was thinking at the Dr.
I think I was just numb from it being my follow up. Everything you mentioned is exactly why I wanted it. I cant believe I forgot that when I was there. Ill have to see what she says I I can get a hold of her.

17 was my draw @ 12 DPO & I was pregnant. They say they like at least a 20, which I think its still low.

When I had a draw w/last m/c a few days later than the previous pregnancy & being on 400mg it was 47!

Hi... I also have had very short LP's on certain cycles and I haven't figured out why.
