anything over 30nmol indicates ovulation so all them levels are a good indication of OV hun, as for the levels dropping these are on natural cycles so i wouldnt be concerned, possibly the reason why the levels were higher previously could be that on c;lomid you released more than one egg hence the higher levels

can you not make an appointment with your present consultant to go through all the levels/results with you ? it may be a good idea so you have all the knowledge you need

Hi

As Cleg has said, any level over 30 nmol/l indicates ovulation so you've nothing to worry about as all your results show this.

It could well be that when you were on Clomid previously, you released more than 1 egg so your levels were slightly higher......but either way, your levels indicate ovulation.

I know it's easier said than done but try not to worry.....but if you have concerns then do speak with your consultant.

Good luck
Natasha

hi there hunny just wanted to wish you all the best of luck, I'm also a bit confused dont know much about progesterone levels but Ive been told over 30 means ovulation, your levels looked very good all over 30, so the question I'm asking is how comes you are not pregnant?,  i dont meen to sound blunt or naive but Ive been told Ive mild PCO'S and that I'm not ovulating. My last progesterone level on clomid was 0.6 which is very low, so if you've been ovulating as your levels show, shouldn't you have conceived ?

samina its not that simple hun,just because you ovulate does not mean you will get PG, there are lots of women myself included who ovulated naturally, good prog levels + was given clomid as a boost but yet still didnt fall PG, there are lots of factors to take into account + each individual is different + lets face it, it is far from easy  :-\ sometimes there are no reasons why ladies dont get PG one of those mysteries

If only it was that simple and easy !!! :-[ I don't have any problems with ovulation and have naturally high levels...between 61nmol/l and 81 nmol/l on natural cycles (lowest was 48 nmol/l which was first natural cycle following an IVF) and when I was prescribed clomid to boost (release more eggs), my levels were 103 and 105 nmol/l on the times I was tested....it's thought I sometimes release more than one egg naturally and when I was on clomid I released 2 or 3 eggs every cycle (follicle tracking and the progesterone results indicated this). I've conceived 3 times naturally....1 ended in termination 18 years ago and 2 early mc's in 2004/2005 (before starting clomid)......unfortunately there just are no guarantees....even with IVF there are no guarantees....we've had 6 IVF/FETs, always had top quality embies and still no baby......

If it was as easy as ovulating and getting high progesterone results, or even of getting top quality embryos through IVF, I'd be pregnant 10 times over.....as Cleg says, there are numerous reasons as to why we don't get pregnant....we're all completely different after all and there are no hard and fast rules.

Take care
Natasha
