there's no hope coz the body can't even produce a decent amount & I am on injections & suppositories. To top it off, had a bout of extreme hunger about 3hours ago which disappeared as suddenly & now I am cramping like AF is on it's way

that's a very good level of P4 at 9DPO!

On my natural BFP cycle, I was on one Crinone in the a.m. and 200 mg supp in the evening. I tested P4 at 9DPO and it was 19.5.

Seriously - you are doing well. If you want to compare P4 at 9DPO for an IVF cycle,

here's sch1star's results...and as you know...she delivered a healthy baby in November.

then the follicles may not reform as well into CL's as they would with a natural egg release. That is why they give P4 supplementation on IVF cycles.

Sometimes even as low at 12! And that was even with progesterone in oil shots daily! Granted, they all ended in losses, but not until 12 weeks or my 3rd loss was at 14 weeks. That can't be relaxed to a low progesterone level in early pregnancy. I've never had a progesterone level over 20 actually.

And with the pregnancy (currently 18w and counting), around 14 weeks pg, about 5 days after stopping my PIO, my progesterone level dropped to 4.7!!! No joke! I can't believe I didn't m/c. I immediately got back on progesterone support and have been okay ever since.

I know I'm not exactly a success story, my case is much more complicated then simply low progesterone. But a 29 level is pretty darn good if you ask me.

Yes Alli that is me. You are right I was pregnant with triplets. The identicals heartbeats stopped early on. It is their sac that is causing the bleeding. When I lost those two I asked what would happen. They told me my body would absorb them. They checked my cervix and it was closed.I am so relieved the baby is fine and measuring perfect the dr. told us today. Thank god. I appreciate everyone's responses so much. Thank you. Have a Merry Christmas everybody!!!!
