    I wouldn't be concerned if the nurses are happy hun. I generally think Warren likes progesterone above 60 in a cycle but that is a lot higher than many other fs requirements its just a base he covers as in 'if its above 60' then that's not the reason for an usuccessful cycle. He looked at my bloods a few cycles ago after a failure and said my progesterone wasnt low in the 50's but he would have liked to have seen it higher so could have possibly been a reason for the failure.

    My main concern at the moment with my progesterone is the huge drop from Tuesday to now. My body cant sustain it.

    From what I've read Progesterone does fluctuate like you all say. I'll check with the nurses on Monday because it just seems like a big drop.

    When is Warren back?

    Ok thanks for explaining it all.

    Fingers crossed that your progesterone levels to where it should be

    @Heyside it must be so frustrating considering the pain and expense of the IM injections.

    @mummymaybe - Definately check with the nurses hun always good for reasurrance. As @NewBeginnings has said Warren is back on the 28th, I have an appointment booked for that day so have a week to prepare myself with lots of questions. Yes the expense of the injections is very annoying hun for them not to work but luckily I haven't had much pain with them.

    Thanks everyone for the progesterone ideas. It seems the pessaries dont register properly in the blood and the injections are metabolised by the liver which could be effected by my insulin resistance due to pcos. Oh my god I seem to know far too much about all this.
    Thanks honey. Fx we see her soon xx

    @NewBeginnings I was always told above 30 - including by Warren himself. A lot of FSs only care that it is above 20. Warren stopped testing progesterone after second BFP BT, although I stayed on 3 x 400mg pessaries throughout the first trimester. I think the main focus is on monitoring it during the TWW while the pregnancy is being established and I had multiple BTs during TWW to check progesterone. At 25dpo mine was 35.9 and Warren was happy with that. I was worried about it as on the threads people had much higher readings than me. I'm now 34 weeks.
