Day21 Progesterone

Actually, I was wondering whether to post this or not. After all, the internet doesn’t need a blow-by-blow of all my stats. Still, this blog is more for me (and those going through similar situations) than anything else.

Anyways, I had my day 21 progesterone blood work done. This test measures whether or not you ovulated – after ovulation, the progesterone levels in the body steadily rise till they hit a peak at ovulation+7days. A measure > 18 (i think the unit is ng/mL but not sure) is considered conclusive proof of ovulation. And mine was above that! Finally! Of all things, I’m overjoyed, if only that I know that I really truly ovulated.

It’s ridiculous how big of an achievement this seems to me. I guess I’ve been thinking of this whole process as a series of little steps and victories. Did I get my period? Yay! I’m on a functioning cycle. Did I ovulate? Yes! I suppose it’s my way of debugging the process and almost unit testing it.
