7dpo Progesterone Levels Question
Hey TTC Ladies – I have a question for y’all…
My Ob/Gyn’s nurse finally called with the progesterone test results – 8.8. She says “That’s great news – it means you’re definitely ovulating!” … but then proceeds with “are you on 50mg or 100mg of Clomid?” which drives me BONKERS that she hasn’t even reviewed my chart to see that I’m on my 2nd cycle of 100mg (3rd cycle overall w/clomid) and when I tell her 100mg, she says, “well, if you’re not pregnant this cycle, Dr. H will keep you at 100 and do another 21 day draw.”
1) If he didn’t know how long I’d been on 100mg, how does he know that I shouldn’t be bumping up to 150mg next cycle?
2) WHY call it a 21 day draw when obviously I am not ovulating on a normal schedule? I had the test done on CD37 this past time.
3) I was reading Remember All The Way last week and she mentioned that her RE likes to see it be at least a 10, and when I just googled it, I found this: “Most doctors want to see a 7DPO progesterone 15 or above for medicated cycles.”
So yeah, I’m pretty conflicted about how to feel about the 8.8. I mean, yes, at least I ovulated, but from what I see, it was a “weak” ovulation, and I feel like I should be stepping up to the 150mg level next cycle if this one’s a bust.
What do you ladies think? If it’s a BFN on Thursday, should I call them back to go over this and push for 150mg next cycle or at least progesterone supplements?
