In the first week of pregnancy does your progesterone level stay high unlike droping after ovulation?

  • i THINK they stay high, and keep rising because your body keeps making the progesterone to build the lining of the uterus to support the egg that is implanting. and then at what like 10 - 12 weeks or so the placenta is now making the progesterone and not "your" body anymore.

  • Your period starts when the corpus luteum (which puts off progesterone) breaks down because it's not needed to support an embryo. If you're pregnant, it doesn't do that and helps support the developing baby until it doesn't need yours anymore like the PP said.

  • It should stay high if you are pregnant. Mine didn't and I had to supplement with progesterone shots until about week 11 or 12.
