I know its xmas eve but I just got my lab results and obviously my Dr is closed until the New Year & Im worried my results are bad! Im in Canada, so the measurement is different from the US as we measure in nmol/L and I find it hard to convert it - most answers online are in us stats.
Here are the results of my 7DPO progesterone test. I confirmed O with a + OPK, although I did have EWCM for two days about 4 days after the +
Progesterone 25 nmol/L
Follicular Phase < 2 nmol/L
Luteal Phase <2 - 50 nmol/L
Midluteal Phase <2 - 81 nmol/L
Postmenopausal < 2 nmol/L
Any advice? I think that under 30 for progesterone means I did not ovulate? Im not good at translating this & hoping others here may be
I'm not entirely sure because of the difference with the measurements, but it looks okay to me. It says that for the luteal phase that you should be between 2-50 and you're at 25 so that seems right in the middle to me. My doctor always says that with O the lower numbers are bad as in the lowest on the scale. I think if you're anywhere on the scale you're okay, but I'm not positive. I had some amazing numbers the last three months and last month in fact was 40 and they said I would have O'd even at 7. I'm not sure if this helps at all but I'm thinking with a number that's mid scale you're probably doing pretty good. Good luck sweetie!
Thanks for the reply! I sure hope your right, Its not to easy to convert the measurements from what I could find online! I appreciate the support though, I feel better now!
If you divide by 3.18, you will be able to compare your result to the US measurement (ng/mL). Here is my source: http://jama.ama-assn.org/site/misc/auinst_si.xhtml
And, here is your answer: 7.86 ng/mL
My RE said he wanted to see >5 ng/mL to indicate ovulation on an unmedicated cycle; he wanted >10 ng/mL on a medicated (Femara) cycle.
Hope that helps!
