    Progesterone levels in early pregnancy

    Hi Girls

    Am after some info on progesterone levels as I had a blood test done before I knew I was pregnant to test my progesterone while on clomid.I O'd late that cycle on day 17 and had the test done on day 22.My levels were at 32(I was only just pregnant, like maybe 2-3 days).Is this enough to sustain a pregnancy?I am really worried now as my sister's was 130 as at day 21.I'm scared that I might miscarry!

    Please help...........

    Hi Kirsty

    I was on clomid too (but i didn't get pregnant whilst taking it) - and there are a lot of girls around the forums that have been on clomid as well, as unfortunately I can't be much help! Fingers crossed that all is going well for keep us posted.

    Hi Kirsty- I seem to be following you around the forums!! hehehe

    When i fell pregnant with Ryley I had VERY low progesterone. I was told by a nurse at the doctor surgery i go to that i was going to miscarry coz my progesterone was so low. Well obvioulsy i didnt as Ryley is beautiful and doing well- but as soon as my doc heard that he called me into his office and put me onto provera which is progesterone. I was on quite a high dosage as well as continuing metformin until i was between 10 and 12 weeks pregnant. Just so you know Provera can work and my little well big boy is living proof!

    Ask your doc about Provera maybe? Good Luck!!

    Hi Angel

    Yeh he finally rang back tonight and said that my preogesterone level is fine, and that anything above 20-90 is in a great range.I guess I'm just really nervous, and scared that I may lose it after all this trouble!He also said something weird, that positive blood types (I'm a a+ have a better chance).I've never heard this before!Maybe he was trying to reassure me.

    Thanks for your help girls.............
    I feel much better now......... 8-[

    Hi Kirsty- sorry i havent responded today been sooo busy!!

    Good to hear that your doc thinks all is okay!
    I will have a dive through Ryley's pregnancy book and let you know what they were. I know I have them in there!!

    until then please try to relax because a relaxed Mum is a better baby making machine than a stressed one!!

    Glad to hear that your progesterone levels are fine, Kirsty! I think I've heard something about how if you have a negative blood type you need to have an injection of something at birth... or something like that. Not too sure on the details.

    Take care.
