    Default Hi Progesterone levels in VERY early pregnancy.

    Hi all, just pregnant with #2 and got my BFP on Thursday at 9dpp (in the evening too!).
    Blood tests at 10 DPO came back as 29 HCG an Progesterone 108.
    I don't remember much about progesterone from nursing studies, and google keeps throwing multiples or molars my way.

    Bloods again on Tuesday (due to my dodgy history with pregnancy).

    But just wondering if anyone has any experience with high progesterone levels and did it result in multiples or a molar?

    Thanks in advance :-)

    Hi
    My progesterone has been between 110 and 120 since I found out (I'm now about 6 weeks) and my fertility clinic has been very happy with that.

    First scan is on Tuesday. My HCG is on par for only 1 bubba in there though.

    Progesterone is made by the follicles you ovulated from. Each follie tends to make about 40 progesterone, so a higher level tends to indicate that you ovulated from more than 1 follie. It doesn't mean that both (or all) the eggs fertilised or implanted - although they may have done.

    My early progesterone was about 600 because it was from a fresh IVF cycle, so I had grown as many eggs as possible/sensible, so then when the embies implanted all of those follicles joined in by making progesterone in response to the hCG (pregnancy hormone) signal.

    hCG is a better (but still not perfect) way of guessing multiples.

    Congrats on your BFP. My progesterone at 11 dpo was 100 and my HCG was 273....just one baby in there. Good luck with the rest of your pregnancy.

    Congrats on your pregnancy! Due to being an ivf patient I didn't have my pregnancy blood test until 14 days after my embryo transfer. I am unsure of what my progesterone level was but my HCG was 497. Despite transferring 2 embryos that cycle we were told that the reading didn't necessarily mean twins. We are expecting 1 little girl!! Some ppl just have a much higher HCG level once pregnant (as advised by ivf nurse).

    Thanks all. First baby I had super high HCG and definitely only one there, my DR actually wanted to make a bet there was more than one :-)

    Im also Assuming that I had more than one dominant follicle which would explain the extended pain around O, as well as the higher levels.

    But found a lot of info that high Progesterone can always signify multiples, just thought I'd see if anyone could back that up.

    Thanks for sharing :-)
