I'm sure the actual reference ranges are different for all labs, but does anybody know about what progesterone level should be at in early pregnancy? With my last successful pregnancy (after 2 miscarriages) I had to be on progesterone suppositories. Just wondering what number I should be shooting for this time around. Thanks!!Answer Question

I think my doctor wanted mine to be at least 20, but 50 or higher would have been better. Even with the suppositories mine dropped down to 4 at around 4 weeks, and I started bleeding. I'd had a miscarriage before and assumed it was happening again, but I switched to injections at that point hoping it would help. My progesterone was up over 60 within two days of starting the injections and the bleeding stopped. If you are pregnant and have low progesterone, you might ask your doctor about progesterone injections. GL!
