Progesterone levels
Hi all

I have already placed a message on the infertility forum, but I need advice from anyone that can give me. So sorry that I am asking on more than one forum.

I went for a progesterone test on Tuesday (day 23) and my results are 71.1. I now know that this is rather high (from the infertility forum) as I am not using any medication to help with ovulation.

I would just like to know if anyone can let me know what the causes of such a high result could be. Could it be that I just have a high progesterone level or could something else be causing this?

It means that you ovulated in this cycle.
