Day 21 progesterone needs to be 30+ to confirm you're ovulating.
When were your FSH and LH done? They're usually done day 2 to 5 and if LH over 50 and FSH over 25 means menopause.
So your numbers all look really good
Good luck

actually just looked at it again, all figures are 4 days dpo. Doc told me to get it done 7 days before my period which is kind of hard to do when they range from 19 to 29 days! Guess the results dont mean anything then eh!!!

I would think the progesterone is still valid. My first day 21 progesterone was <1 so they thought I didn't ovulate. I was averaging 35 day cycles then so repeated it at day 28 (ie about 7dpo) and it was 36. I think it rises quite quickly after ovulation.
Hope you can find out

Sorry, I would love to help...but find myself in a similar situation. I am now into my second day of menopur of my first ICSI cycle but have no idea of any of my figures except my FSH level which was 11.2....V v frustrating. Hope others can be of more help. (I wouldn't mind so much if I weren't paying privately!)

I was told by my doc that progesterone level over 8 means you ovulated. My level was 19 on day 23 and she said I did ovulate but of course I still got a BFN! I use the CBE monitor and I peaked on CD16 so I think I did ovulate. Hope this helps!

I was just looking online because with what my doc told me and my levels were 17 ne month and 19 the next, so I did some research. This is what I found out:
Progesterone (P4) 7 dpo > 15 ng/ml A progesterone test is done to confirm ovulation. When a follicle releases its egg, it becomes what is called a corpus luteum and produces progesterone. A level over 5 probably indicates some form of ovulation, but most doctors want to see a level over 10 on a natural cycle, and a level over 15 on a medicated cycle. There is no mid-luteal level that predicts pregnancy. Some say the test may be more accurate if done first thing in the morning after fasting.

Hope this helps!!!
