So Im pregnant after my first FET

7dp5dt ...HCG: 57 ..Progesterone :5

 

Im on a medicated cycle. I was doing 1 cc PIO but I suggested to RE that I want to do 1.5cc because I'm scared of that number 5 level....I hear everywhere it should be above 20.

 

Is this not viable pregnancy? 

is it common for low progesterone on a medicated cycle?

Measuring the actual level is tricky to do in an accurate fashion because the level fluctuates throughout the day and is affected by different proteins and binding globulin in your blood. Whether to actually measure the progesterone level (or target a specific level) is quite controversial. It is only one factor in carrying a pregnancy and doesn't specifically determine viability. Noone knows the right dose/level. Many doctors dont measure it at all (i don't think mine was checked ever), but many do. When it comes to choosing a dose, there is also variability... oral, injected, vaginal routes vary too. When I read the literature on this, there is just no clear answer: testing or not, dose, route, duration. All unclear as to what is best.

Having open communication with your doctor and trusting their experience is key.

I'm 41 with endo

IVF #1: March 2016: Long protocol: Suprefact (200)/Menopur (225)

9 follicles => 4 eggs => 3 mature => 3 fertilized (ICSI) => 2 blasts (one transferred, one frozen)

BFN

IVF #2: June 2016: Microdose flare: Suprefact (40 BID)/Menopur (150)/ Gonal (300)

7-10 follicles (?) => 12 mature eggs => only 4 fertilized w/ICSI => transferred 2 @ 3days and 1 blast frozen

BFP: day 14 beta = 93, day 18 beta 557 (37h doubling time)

.... it stuck and we welcomed our boy March 2017!

back on this crazy journey again: June 6, 2018: FET #1...
