Progesterone Levels

by TB
(Australia)

I am 28 years old and have endometriosis and PCOS. I have been on Clomid for 3 months - the first month my progesterone level was 1.73 nmol/L, the second and third month it was 1.6 nmol/L and the month of June the level was 37.0 nmol/L.

I want to know what this means? Is this a good sign for me? Please respond asap as it is making me a bit anxious.

Progesterone Levels

Hi TB I don't know why you've been given Clomid for Endometriosis and PCOS, see here, here and here. They are trying to force you to ovulate, not a good thing. Why on earth don't they look at why you're not ovulating. As you live in Australia, I would guarantee it's because of a lack of sun. The policy of covering up is a dangerous one, as it means you are not making any vitamin D, many Australians lack it, see here and here. It's vital for normal ovarian function. Plus a lack has been found in endo and PCOS, which are both inflammatory disorders caused by a lack of antioxidants. The main one being vitamin D, please have a test done. For more info see the Vitamin D Council and GrassrootsHealth websites. Your progesterone level has increased, which probably means you have ovulated during the time you've been taking the Clomid. Levels should be during the follicular phase < 1 ng/ml or <3.18 nmol/L, and during the luteal phase 5 to 20 ng/ml or 15.9 - 63.6 nmol/L. It would be far safer for you to use progesterone to help the endo and PCOS, it does help the cycle too. For more info see out page on How to use progesterone cream. But please have that vitamin D test done. Take care Wray
