Progesterone levels in early pregnancy
For my 3rd transfer (IVF) I was put on 400 mg progesterone pessaries 3 times a day 10 days before the transfer. I continued this dosage until I was told I was pregnant. The tests showed my progesterone was low (10 ng/ml) at 4 weeks. I was then put on duphaston 10 mg morning and night, progesterone pessaries (400 mg) three times a day and primolut depot 500 mg IM once a week. It shot up from 10ng/ml to 34ng/ml. It has stayed at 34 for the last 5 weeks (I am now 9 weeks).
I went to hospital at 5 weeks with bleeding and cramping and they discovered a large subchoronic hemorrhage, I have been put on bed rest since and the hemorrhage has all but disappeared. However I have had mild cramping majority of the time since the hemorrhage and had two days last week of it being quite painful. The doctor is not sure what is causing it as everything looks fine. Could it be my progesterone is too low? Is 34 ng/ml quite low for all the progesterone I am on?
Many thanks for any advice.
