progesterone level of 3.2 with a positive pregnancy test
Here's my story.. I'm 40 and my husband and I are trying to get pregnant for the first time. I had a chemical pregnancy in Oct '07.
I was put on Clomid. After my 2nd cycle of Clomid, my 21 day progesterone was 3.2. I was told I did not ovulate. I started on progesterone suppository 100mg every day.
However, on day 27 I took a pregnancy test just in case and it was positive!
On day 27 (approx 13 days after ovulation) my HCG was 60 and progesterone 16.2. On day 29 my HCG was 159. They did not check another progesterone.
1) Has anyone who had a very low progesterone (3 or less) on day 21 gone on to have a healthy pregnancy?
2) How often does your doctor check your progesterone levels? My next appointment isn't for 2 weeks (I would be 6 weeks pg then). I know there really isnt anything that can be done for low progesterone other than what I am already doing but it would be nice to see if it is working.
My biggest question is if anyone out there who had a very low progesterone level on day 21 went on to carry full term. I would be more excited about the positive test but I feel anxious that my progesterone was so low in the beginning.
