    What is a good progesterone level for 12 dpo (7dp 5dt)?

    *** ments ***

    When I did my early (12 dpo) beta, I also asked for my progesterone to be checked. It came back as 21.0. I am not on PIO, just Endometrin 3x day vaginally.

    There's a lot of info (too much!) on the Internet about beta levels, but a lot less about P4 levels. Is 21.0 considered good? Will I have to stay on this much supplementation? Does P4 rise during pregnancy?

    Thank you in advance for your help!

    W/ a progesterone of 21 you should be fine, especially since endometrin doesn't show up in blood tests like PIO. It goes straight to the uterus first. See this article.

    Top 10 Facts About Vaginal Progesterone and Assisted Reproductive Technologies - InVia Fertility

    My current pregnancy (a DE FET) I was on only 1 cc of PIO which made me nervous as he!!, so I asked for my progesterone levels to be checked w/ the second beta. It came back at 21 and the RE was totally fine with it. I usually see that levels above 15 are considered good, and that's in the blood. So if you have a 21 while only taking endometrin, that doesn't count the progesterone that went straight to the uterus, so you should be fine. I stopped PIO at 8 weeks and switched to only endometrin, then stopped all progesterone and estrogen support at 10 weeks. The placenta takes over producing the hormones by that time.

    On Endometrium my OB likes to see P4 over 5. In a natural pg P4 over 20 is desired (5 would be likely m/c). So as the pp said medicated w/Endometrium is very different (where 5 is good!). On 9dp5dt, my P4s were 17.4 and 21.7 for my live births. Congrats on your BFP!
