Progesterone levels day of transfer
« on: 31/07/20, 14:48 »
Hi all

Currently doing my final FET

I have my progesterone levels checked yesterday afternoon just after my frozen transfer.

They have come back at 27.9...
Is that low? Im still in with a chance right?

Hubby is now off to the pharmacist to get Lubion injections. Praying this helps

    Thatís low, the lowest my Czech clinic would allow is 30, 30 and below they added in more progesterone, so hopefully the injections will help you, they usually do.

    Bubbles Iíve read so much on this. Studies articles anything I could get my hands on. And here is what I think (for what itís worth)

    The day you start is most important. Progesterone especially vaginally switches on endometrial receptivity. Vaginal progesterone is extremely bioavailable as in it goes right to the spot. It is not processed via kidney liver and is not oral so doesnít get broken down by stomach.
    So youíve got that part covered.

    Secondly they will measure your levels on day of transfer. So donít worry. If you need more they will give you more.

    Thirdly youíve caught this at a good time.

    Some clinics say 2 x 200 and some say up to 5 x 200
    I was on 3 x 200 and lubion

    In the past Iíve been on 1 x 50 shot in the bum no vaginal

    And other times cyclogest (back passage) and a shot.

    So really the important part is that you start 5/6 days before a 5 day embryo is transferred or as instructed if 3 day embryo.

    I hope this helps x

    To add my last levels were measured at 15 and the clinic said thatís acceptable. And I was on lubion 25 per day and 3 x 25.

    And also progesterone thatís administered vaginally doesnít always measure in blood tests.

    If your clinic think that level is good then thatís ok. Lubion is easy and will support your embryo growth.

    Progesterone Levels in first trimester are 11-44 naturally.

    Thank you for looking up on this for me. Im so grateful.

    I am on 2 x 400mg of cyclogest (from 5 days before transfer) and as from 1dp5dt im on 25mg Lubion

    It was when they found my level at 27.9 that i then went onto Lubion.

    I really hope im still in with a chance.

    Thank you for your help xx

    Hi, I just wondered are progesterone levels usually taken on the day of FET please? The clinic i am didn't, I also made a mistake and was taking the wrong progesterone (lower dose ) as I mixed up my meds, stupid of me. Thank you xx

    Hi Snowdrop
    Mine have started to take them now. My last 3 transfers it was taken.
    I think many clinics prescribe it vaginally and that doesnít always show in blood serum.
    Maybe thatís why itís not always measured.
