hi - I am meant to have the 21 day blood test tomorrow to see if I've ovulated but is going to be near impossible to get to the clinic - would it make a whole heap of difference if I went on day 22? (actually day 25 as my cycle 31 days)

Should be okay, having it done a day later won't make any real difference to the final result.

BTW they should also be doing a day 3 test as well to measure LH and FSH levels; progesterone is only part of the story.

Test result came back though nurse crap at explaining things.

Progesterone level was 45.3. Is that good? Does that mean I ovulated?

Hi CPK - according to my doctor, anything over 30 indicates you ovulated. Mine was 40 and they told me I was well within the normal range.

I am worried now. I had to have the '21 day test' but it was arranged for CD17 as I ovulate around 15/16th day of my cycle according to the monitor I use... BUT - I was almost a week late with my period so rearranged the blood test for 5 days later than the first one and then ovulated on CD11!! I did ask the nurse if having the test six days after ovulation would matter but she didn't seem to know.

I know I am ovulating but my last 21 day test was very low so they wanted to repeat it.
