    Default Those of you with Endometriosis

    Have you ever had your progesterone checked? Was it high? Low?

    Is low progesterone a common thing in endo patients? I recently heard that and its news to me - but it wasn't from a medical source so I didn't know what to think of that little tid bit. I have never had my progesterone checked outside of an IVF cycle when I was already on PIO so I have no idea what mine is on a day to day basis.

    Well it depends on what cycle day. I had checked mine like day 21 (after ovulation) and it was 4.6. According to their guidelines, they said I ovulated on my own but I know for sure to show a strong ovulation it has to be above 9 or 10. Before you ovulate though your progesterone should be low. Im not sure but endometriosis seems to have an effect on progesterone.

    When TTC DS I had my progesterone checked a lot and it was generally really high. TTC #2 and my progesterone levels have been on th lower side of things when checked.
    I did not have Endometriosis that was vissable when TTC DS.

    When I had my progesterone checked on unmedicated cycles it was on the low side, BUT they were going by the textbook CD 21 which is pointless when you have long cycles so I don't think you could go by those results.

    I completely hate endo with a passion... I can feel it coming back full force only 6 months after having the twins. The Dr even removed adhesions during the c-section that grew while I was pregnant. I can't get rid of the stuff!

    I have endo but was not found to have low progesterone when TTC during a natural cycle. I've never heard of the connection between the two - interesting.

    Same here - but I got a 18 month break before I started to notice it coming back.

    Mine has always been normal for a regular cycle and really really high on PIO.
    I Hate Endo with a large passion also!!! I have an endometrioma on my right side as we speak and I thought that is was supposed to be supressed right now.
    Endo sisters, I hope they find a cure soon. That is the 1st thing I thought of when they told me I was expecting a little girl.
