Yes, all of my CD21 results have been above 25 until this last time, it was drawn on CD28 and it was 8.1.

That's a good lining and you are in perfect position to catch that eggie. So get off the board and go for it! lol.


Sorry you didn't get more eggies though. It's always nice to know you have a back up. But you just need that one good one...

Susan,

Following up from my Preach-A-Thon regarding Progesterone... 8.1 is not OK. !0 is the minimum point in the acceptable range post conception. Clearly, 8.1 is below 10. Plus, no one should shoot for the lowest point in an acceptable range.

Fingers crossed for rich amounts of Progesterone this cycle at CD21!!

I know Libby, I can't figure out why both the OB and the RE think it's fine when every article I find on it says 10 and above.

And I don't. I just worry that the doctors (mine included when I was in the game) are just a bit blithe about the statistics and levels.

I learned first hand - we need to be our own Advocates in this process. In fact, I learned it the hard way.

What I share comes from my experience and a genuine hope that someone learns from what I went through and doesn't have to go through it themselves.

Susan,


What about using a natural progesterone cream on your own?
