Default Progrestrone Levels

Does your clinic check for this after transfer?

I remember we had this conversation here awhile back because my levels were so low after last cycle and so were Baby Hungry's.

My understanding is they like to see a level of 15 for a naturally conceived pregnancy and a level of 25 for an IVF pregnancy (at my clinic at least). My levels never seem to get above 30, 60 tops when i have been pregnant.

Last failed cycle my progrestrone was a pitiful 18 after using crinone gel for 2 weeks when my beta was tested. This time i insisted my progrestrone was monitored and i had extra progrestrone support. They no longer do proluton shots at my clinic (which we used for transferring Analeise and the 1st 10 weeks of pregnancy). I remember my 1st prog level with +++ beta was 43 and that was on 1 proluton shot a day + 3 pessaries.

Yesterday as per my request at progrestrone monitoring this time i had a blood test. I am on 1 crinone gel in the morning and 2 or 3 pessaries at night. WHen my level came back yesterday my nurse checked twice and i made her check twice more.

My level was 675 !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

OMG is that crazy or what! I didnt even know progrestrone could go that high. Isn't it strange how your body can behave differently from 1 cycle to the next. They are going to check again on Friday just to be sure!

That's incredibly high. Are you sure they are measuring it the same way of your previous cycles? I know that the U.S. and Canadian measurement for E2 levels differs. I hope it means that those 2 embryos are burrowing deeply into your lining
 
.

My clinic has us go for b/w and u/s 5 days after transfer. On this day, they want our P4 to be 30 or higher and our E2 to be 100 or higher. If the levels are below this mark, they have us take additional progesterone or estrace. The u/s is done to see that our lining has converted and is properly absorbing the progesterone.

Good Luck x 2

Went for another P4 blood test today and this time the level was 83 so thats a drop isnt it. Nurse said the 675 level was correct but would also of had to do with the HCG injection (from trigger) still in my system.

Only 1 week till beta now!
