Progesterone - what level should it be?

Hello ,

I am TTC and just wondered what progesterone level should be in early pregnancy . Mine was 50 when I spotting in my last pregnancy . Could this been the cause of my 7 week miscarriage few weeks back....?

Hi Orangepie - how terrible for you I'm so sorry to hear you went through that.

I don't know anything that can be of use to you- all I know is after my embryo tranfer I am on progesterone cream internally once a day. I believe I have been having chemical pregnancies over the years and the lining of my womb was not good enough. I stopped pregnancy testing about 2 years ago as it just got depressing! I think this cream is doing the job for me.

I hope you get some answers soon.

Much love and blessings to you.

Did you have testing done to see what was causing these chemical pregnancies? Do you know what your lining measured?

Hi Orangepie. Progesterone levels range from around 7-49 during the first 12/40wks of pregnancy. Your reading of 50 sounds sufficient to me, as you would probably have been using progesterone pessaries/gel too which would top it up a bit higher?? I seem to remember that you had an issue with your thyroxin levels?? Apologies if I have this wrong, but if so, you must make sure you get regular checks to ensure the correct level of thyroxin is prescribed for you - if indeed it was. Having a miscarriage at any stage of pregnancy is just dreadful, but sadly we can't always find a reason for it happening. Thinking of you. Diane


Thanks for this message! My levels were at 50 without taking any supplements but I was still spotting. So decided to take progesterone , aspirin and thyroxine - correct dose now I hope . I really hope this does this trick now...


Hi Orangepie. Thanks for that update. Let's hope you have the correct cocktail now! Diane
