Blood Work

Jenny - May 30

If you don't know my story I have been ttc for a while now with no luck. I am going to have blood work done in June. They told me come in on cycle day 21 to check if I am o'ing, What I want to know is what are my levels suppose to be and what would be the next step if I am not o'ing.

What they told me was they were looking for levels above a ten in progesterone level. If you are low then they will probably suggest clomis which I did cd's 5-9. And if you are doing IUI's then the trigger shot. That's what worked for me I found out today that I am 4 weeks pg!!

Thank you and congrads! How long have you been ttc?

Jenny, have you temped yet? That should tell you if you're ovulating. I'm surprised you haven't tried that before going to a doctor. How long have you been ttc?


Jenny - May 30

Lin, I have temped before, sometimes ff says that I o and sometimes I have to override it. I had a iud taken out in July of last year so it has almost been a year with no luck. We did wait 2 months before we started trying. I have read on alot of other sites about how the iud can cause thin linings and scar tissue so I'm just a little worried.

Jenny - I have my progesterone checked each month b/c I'm taking Clomid. The first three months my progesterone was 17, 12, 11 so the doctor increased my dosage. Last month my progesterone level was 47.8 so the doctor really thought I was pregnant but I ended up not being pregnant so now I'm on my 5th round of Clomid and really hoping it works. I think if your progesterone is above 10 it means you are ovulating but just a warning not to get your hopes up if you get a high number b/c it does not necessarily mean that you are pregnant. I made that mistake last month and then was really disappointed when I wasn't pregnant. Good luck with everything!

Thanks Anna! Really good to know that when I have it done.
