Good Progesterone=Ovulation (Hopefully)
We finally got my results from my progesterone test on Thursday, and I was at 23.69 seven days post ovulation. Despite the nurse's assurance that this was a good result, I immediately began comparing this to previous levels and googling (as if I hadn't googled info about progesterone levels a thousand times before). It's wild for me to think that most people who get pregnant have no ideal what their mid-luteal progesterone level was...they most likely have no ideal that such a test exists. From the first month we were able to get off birth control, my progesterone levels have been monitored. It's really quite funny how much I have learned about my body in this process. If we had not experienced difficulties, I would have never truly appreciated the intricacies of conceiving a child, how everything really has to be perfectly aligned. While I would gladly trade the two lost pregnancies and months of disappointment for ignorance, I am thankful for the knowledge we have gained.
