    Default Dropping progesterone?

    Here are my results so far:
    HCG at 13dpo - 81, Progesterone -64
    HCG at 15 dpo- 217
    HCG at 16 dpo - 351, Progesterone- 54

    I'm worried about that last number. why would my progesterone drop? Trying to contact the ob to ask but he isn't answering. Is this normal??

    I'm not on any supplements but did mc back in March.

    @Steph12 progesterone is notoriously fickle and can go up and down throughout the day, such as after food it drops I think. As long as it's above 30 u should b fine.

    For this pregnancy for me my prog levels were:

    Dpo 16, Hcg 228, P4 63.5
    Dpo 23, Hcg 4626, P4 56
    Dpo 30, Hcg 29,303, P4 79

    So it dropped but went back up. Ur hcg levels are much more important and they look great!! Congrats

    All of those progesterone levels are above average, don't be concerned about your progesterone. Mine went down and down in the early weeks and I'm now busy breastfeeding this little man. Try not to stress.
