Im about 4-4 1/2 weeks pregnant progesterone is 10.2 is this ok or do i need to be on progesterone creme. I have PCOS as well.
I've included normal result ranges below. However, if you're pregnant, you should seriously have your doc test your serum progesterone levels and prescribe you Crinone gel if you are low. It's going to deliver you a consistent and high level of progesterone, which you can't guarantee with a non-Rx cream. It is also bio-identical progesterone, NOT a progestin, which you should never take. If your progesterone levels are too low during pregnancy, it can lead to miscarriage. Be very careful.
Progesterone levels vary depending on when the test is done. Blood progesterone levels start to rise midway through the menstrual cycle, continue to rise for about 6 to 10 days, and then fall if fertilization does not result.
Levels continue to rise in early pregnancy.
This following are normal ranges based upon certain phases of the menstrual cycle and pregnancy:
Female (pre-ovulation): less than 1 ng/mL
Female (mid-cycle): 5 to 20 ng/mL
Male: less than 1 ng/mL
Postmenopausal: less than 1 ng/mL
Pregnancy 1st trimester: 11.2-90.0 ng/mL
Pregnancy 2nd trimester: 25.6-89.4 ng/mL
Pregnancy 3rd trimester: 48.4-42.5 ng/mL
Note: ng/mL = nanograms per milliliter
Note: Normal value ranges may vary slightly among different laboratories. Talk to your doctor about the meaning of your specific test results.
The examples above show the common measurements for results for these tests.
