    Default Progesterone levels in early pregnancy

    I'm very early pregnant again after 2 mcs and so had some blood testing done straight away.

    At 3+4 my hcg was 58 and progesterone was 74.

    Can anyone tell me what is considered normal or a good level of progesterone to have at that stage?

    We were concerned that I could have low progesterone but I don't go back to see my doctor until tomorrow, so just wondering about it until then.

    Anything above 30 for progesterone is good for pregnancy. Your result is great, congratulations

    Yep @akakura is right, your progesterone is fine. It'll go up and down throughout the day and from day to day so don't get worried if it's less or more in your next BT.

    Hi ladies
    I've had another blood test & my progesterone has now dropped to 40nmol (was 74, then 56 now 40). Hcg was great at 2500 which had more than doubled.

    My Dr said it's fine because it's above 30 but I'm not sure that she knows all that much about it (she is only a gp & told me she did some internet research to find out levels).

    Considering my previous mcs, should I be worried that my levels are dropping?

    What can I do about it?

    Does this level warrant me going back to her & demanding she give me supplements?

    Mine was up and down but my fertility specialist wasn't worried as it always stayed over 30. Once went as low as 39 and she still said that was healthy. So unless it drops under 30, I would trust what your doc is saying.

    Ok thanks.

    She hasn't asked me to do any more blood tests.

    Do you think I should go back & ask her for one more just in case?

    Given your history and for your own piece of mind there is no harm in asking for another one. All the best.

    Hi snooze. And congratulations!! I had my progesterone levels checked throughout one of my pregnancies as well. I was also worried about my levels. Mine dropped from 40 to 31 and I asked to be placed on progesterone support. My FS was not that concerned but was happy to do it as he could see I was really worried about it. It wouldn't hurt to talk to your doctor about it. As far as I'm aware progesterone support really can't hurt and for me it was a real security blanket. Good luck. Your doing really well x
