Our expert says:
I would suggest that you have a different form of ovulation monitoring since the progesterone level is highly dependent on the period or the stage of ovulation. Occasionally patients even on Clomid or stimulation may ovulate later than expected and therefore the timing of the progesterone test should be according to when ovulation has actually occurred. As this is difficult to predict in retrospect it would be best to use an alternate form of ovulation monitoring such as ultrasound follicle tracking and the progesterone blood test if still indicated or warranted can be done exactly 7 days after the ovulation has taken place to be accurate. In our practice values above 25 are considered to be indicative of ovulation although laboratory values are above 15 have been suggested as a guide.
