    Default Progesterone levels at 6 weeks

    Hi all!

    Today I had my 6week blood test my progesterone levels was at 47, my FS wants me to start progesterone supplements tomorrow (1 pessarie a day for 10 weeks). So I'm a little freaked out to say the least! How
    soon would I see a rise in my progesterone levels and how much would it go up by? Also, is there a safe range for our progesterone levels to be in during the first trimester.

    My levels today: hcg- 66437 and estrogen-3316.

    Thank you in advance for your advice!

    Crinone increases my progesterone by approx 35. Pessaries probably the same amount. (2 a day.)
    It will affect your progesterone levels immediately (or close to it).

    For the TWW the FNs say keep progesterone above 30 to keep AF away. For me I know that number is a little low, and we need to keep mine a little above 35. I've no experience with a pregnancy that only has one follicle making progesterone, but it sounds to me like your FS is just erring on the side of caution.

    I hope there's no upper limit to safe progesterone in first trimester. Since mine is coming after a fresh cycle I have lots of follies. It's the follicles that make the progesterone (in response to hCG from the placenta), so my 5wk progesterone was 577.
    My little bit of googling seemed to indicate that (at least at the first or 2nd BT early on) each follie makes about 40 progesterone, so that people with approx 80 were calling it "high progesterone" and being suspicious of twins - i.e. from having produced 2 follicles.

    Hi Positive

    My Progesterone levels for 5weeks 6 days were 27.4. The nurse at my clinic said they were OK. I was already on 2x 400mg pessaries per day.

    I had to add another pessary to the mix making it 3x 400mg per day and I had another BT 3 days later at 6 weeks 1 day and my progesterone had jumped up to 37.4. So it had increased by 10.

    I hope that helps. We did a 5 day FET on Prednisone, Progynova & Provera.

    hey girls, I am hoping this thread still has some level of interest as I have tried to find ANY information relating even close to my level of progesterone. I had my hcg and p4 tested at 19dpo and my progesterone level was 806!!!! WHY SO HIGH?? I am on pessaries but it appears that alot of people are on pessaries and none have levels quite this high .....any help would be amazing!

    Hi chances,
    i dont think there is anything particularly wrong with being on the high end of progesterone, i know when i was preg with my DS at day+25 after transfer mine was 911..and it did get over 1000 before i was taken off the crinone. i wouldnt be worried,if the clinic thought there was a problem they would let you know
