    Default Progesterone levels after ovulation/luteal phase?

    Hi ladies, does anyone know what level your progesterone should be in the 2 weeks after ovulation and before AF in the luteal phase? I have read alot of info that says progesterone levels need to be a certain amount for a pregnancy to be viable? Im also referring to the levels on a normal cycle where conception has not happened. Does anyone know what the minimum level of progesterone is supposed to be for everything to be considered normal? Thanks

    Default Progesterone levels after ovulation/luteal phase?

    I'm not to sure but I just had my 21 days test done this morning and it came back with prog- 43 ng/ml or 108 nmol/L , e2- 1205 pmol/L and Lh- 6 IU/L .. The Dr said as long as prog stays about 30 I think we are all good but she said they were really good levels...I don't know if that helps

    Default Progesterone levels after ovulation/luteal phase?

    Yeah I've had the test done but I'm confused because my cycles are longer, usually 35-37 days. The day 21 blood test is showing that I haven't ovulated but if I get it done on day 26 it shows I have ovulated, so as it looks like I'm getting the test done right after O I'm not sure if my levels are right. Will get it re-tested next cycle tho and go from there

    Thanks so much boycrazy. Does that mean they are only considered a problem if the levels are under 12? If they are on the lower end of that scale around 30 or so is that considered low? Or as long as they are above 12 is that ok?
