    I'm not sure if the higher the better or as long as you ovulated it doesn't really matter if its 10 or 100, a question for the gp I think hon. How many does after ov did you have it? I had mine cd25 as that made it 7 dpo which is when your progesterone peaks so a day or two either side would show a lesser result as it will be on bell curve, like an LH surge xx

    I'm not even sure dee cos it's been such a funny cycle. Could have been 8dpo I'm
    Guessing tho. Feel a bit better after reading up on it. Most say any over 5 but over 10
    Is preferable. If I ovulated as late as cheapy opk showed I would have only been 4 or 5 dpo so could have been climbing. Af isn't here yet anyway so still holding on to hope x x

    Mine were 30.1 but that was done a day early don't know if that one day would make much dif but I was told that that was fine and that I ovulated and anything over 30 is classed as fine xx

    Mine were 36.4 (I think) on my reference sheet it showed that needed to be 30 plus to indicate ovulation but yours may have been done by a different measurement. I know in america they use a different measuring system for the results x

    Yeah that's what makes me think mines are a different measure cos when I looked at another site when I was obsessing earlier it said over 5 was good and normal ranges were 10 and 20, but American sites were far higher. Thanks for your advice ladies x x

    I got told my levels were 17 which meant I hadn't ovulated and that they needed 2 be at 20 for ovulation xx

    After stressing so much about it fri I discovered that some labs test it in different measurements there's
    nmol/l = nanomoles per litre
    ng/l = nanograms per litre
    The normal in woman Progesterone levels tend to be < 2 ng/ml prior to ovulation, and > 5 ng/ml after ovulation. Anything over 5 (but best to be in between 10 and 20 means ovulation has occurred.

    As for nmol/l this is what I found :

    1. Progesterone > 30nmol/l &#8211; ovulation has occurred and the corpus luteum is producing sufficient progesterone to induce adequate secretory changes in the endometrium to assist implantation.
    2. Progesterone 3-30 nmol/l &#8211; ovulation has occurred > 10 days ago or < 5 days ago, or if ovulation did occurr 5-10 days ago, the level is probably not adequate to sustain endometrial growth for satisfactory implantation.
    3. Progesterone >120 nmol/l &#8211; two or more follicles have been recruited
    4. Progesterone < 3nmol/l &#8211; no ovulation in previous 14 days.

    Phew! I was rubbish at biology at school but slowly getting better haha!

    I've got him on all the right vitamins but he's totally in denial. If the second test comes back the same he said he'll try acupuncture and I want him to ask the gp about a urology referral as it seems incredibly bad given he's got two children he conceived without a whiff of a problem, his sons mother was on the pill and he was out of the country 3 out of 4 weeks at that time ffs! I feel so anxious about all but at least now I know its not me with the problem I have wine to help me through! Xx
