Ghost or ladies.. E2 and progesterone level after transfer

Postby x0Heather0x » Mon Apr 30, 2012 8:31 pm

Ghost and ladies,

I had E2 and progesterone issues my last cycle, so this time we are monitoring them.
I had the levels checked the day of my transfer and now 4dp5dt.
Can you please tell me what these levels are supposed to be at these 2 different times.

Thanks!

Some clinics like to keep the progesterone above 10, 15, or 20 ng/ml. But that's most relevant if it's given by injection. If it's given vaginally, then the serum level is supposed to be less important because it can get more directly to the uterus.

Some clinics give estradiol and some don't.

My clinic always liked to see the progesterone stay above 20. I had some issues when mine fell to 11. As for the estrogen, there is a very very wide range. It would be very hard to give you a good answer for that. Mine has been anywhere from 400 to just under 1000 for this cycle. I think that is relatively low compared to some others I have heard of. (My cycle was an FET, not sure if that makes a difference or not?)
After 7 attempts (2 negatives/3 miscarriages), we have TWO miracle boys!! If you would like to hear our story, please visit http://www.ivfsuccessstories.info. Never give up, it can happen for you!!
