Hi, I'm hoping someone has had similar numbers and can shed some light.
I did my first beta December 31 which came back 496 and progesterone at 1000!
Second beta 2 days later at 920 and progesterone 601. This seems extremely high compared to what I've read on line.
I did a fresh transfer and was taking endometrin 3 times a day. Has anyone had such high progesterone numbers? I keep wondering if my clinic made a mistake!

it is high indeed. are you also on assisted progesteron tablets etc? this might also be the cause and your doc might advice you to stop taking them. i bet you sleep a lot with such high numbers. Congratulations on the Pregnancy smile.png

Hi 2014Hopeful

Congrats on the pregnancy!

With the beta increasing nicely that is what is most important.

Speak to your doc about it but this very well may not be anything to worry about.

Best of luck

Yes I called again and they said to stop the progesterone since my levels were good and they said continuing on the endometrin would not change the outcome.
I pray they are right.

You are likely making a sufficient amount of progesterone with levels that high!

Sounds promising. All the best

Depending on the units being used to measure, the progesterone may still be quite above baseline so as long as it is quite elevated above normal (i.e. prior to ovulation) it should be fine.
