High Progesterone

Liza - May 2

At 5wk 4d from LMP, my progesterone tested at 78. I have an u/s scheduled for wk 8, and will not see the doc until a few wks later. In the meantime, I cannot make sense of this number! Can anyone help -- is high prog indeed associated with twins? How likely might this be? The only other cause I've seen is molar pregnancy, which is rare and not something I'd *like* to consider. Waiting for more info is driving me nuts! Any wisdom out there?

Hi Liza, I'm not pg, but I've had VERY high progesterone levels for 2 of my day 21 (7 dpo) tests. The first was 68 and the second was 71. I too was worried why the number was so high (especially when it turned out I wasn't even pg!). I asked the nurse about it, and she said that number is perfectly normal. Apparently most women do get numbers around 10 or 15, but that 10-90 is 'normal'. She said that high progesterone means a really good ovulation (and maybe good lining) ..oh, and can also means a higher chance of multiples. Yikes! :) Good luck with your pregnancy, don't worry..your prog. level is juuuust fine.
