    Default High Progesterone

    Hi all! At what I think was 13dpo (but could have been 17dpo) I had my progesterone level tested and it came back at 170 nmol/L (53.46 ng/mL).

    I've found that the 'normal' range for first trimester is:
    9-47 ng/ml
    28.5-150 nmol/L

    So my level is pretty high!

    Just for fun I'd be interested to hear of other's experiences with high progesterone? Did you have a singleton or multiples?

    Just FYI - I've had no fertility treatments and I do have a maternal history of multiples (mat gmother is twin, aunty had twins).

    When pregnant with my DD, my progesterone at 14dpo was 68.

    I've also heard high progesterone is a sign of multiples! With DS mine was over 1000! I did do IVF but even for fertility treatment that's a crazy high number. Just one healthy little bean.

    I think it's a sign of a healthy pregnancy

    I was actually worried my progesterone would be low, as I've had 2 mc's in the past. So was really shocked that it cane back so high! Pleased though as I know it's important in early pregnancy ☺

    So long as bub sticks and grows I'm happy! But will be totally panicked if it is multiples 😅
