Hi Annemarie,

I don't really know much about the numbers.

Annemarie,

My RE told me at my visit that if my progesterone was not >10 on dpo( days past ovulation)7 then I did not ovulate. You gave your levels on cd21 and cd23....what day do you think you ovulated? The cd21 would be dpo7 IF you ovulated on cd14, but not everyone ovulates on cd14. If you ovulated on say cd10 then your first progesterone test would have been on dpo11 and your progesterone levels would have been falling by that time, so who is to say that they were not >10, four days earlier on dpo7? My RE told me to do OPKs and count 8 days from the first positive test, this should be dpo7, and then go in for the progesterone test. I don't have all of your imformation, but from what you have written, it soulds like your Dr office is just using the "average" ovulation date of cd14 to base your numbers off of. Maybe you O early and have a long luteneal phase. None of us are "average". In my last 5 cycles, I didn't O once,
