Progesterone & HCG
I went on Clomid for five days from the 18th May.(Day 2 of my cycle). I went for AI on the 1st June. (Day 16 of my cycle)
I did a Progesterone blood test on the 6th June (Day 21 of my cycle). Value was 130. On the 7th I did a Blood HCG and it was negative. On the 10th I did a Progesterone blood test, with a result of 169 and a HCG quantitative with a result of only 3. (Result should be between 5-50 for 0-1 week pregnancy)

I have been on Estrogen tablets (1 per day) and Parlodel (3 a day). Could this influence my progesterone levels? Or does this mean that I can be pregnant?

Karen.

Unfortunately, it appears that you are not pregnant. The results show that you ovulated, but the AI was not successful.
