progesterone level tests, confused
hi there, i had my prog levels checked on day 22, the doc phoned on day 23 to say level was very high, indicating iv just or already ovulated, but i tested on day 12-14 positive with a urine test, for ovulation, also had clear cm. on day 24 i started spotting and day 26 i have a full period, is this correct, i thought that high prog could indicate pregnancy, how come i started spotting inspite of a high reading?? thanx xxx

The high progesterone indicates that you ovulated but did not conceive in that cycle.
