What are normal progesterone levels in the first month of pregnancy?


Answer by  jalucia (936)

During the monthly cycle, in which ovulation occurs, the progesterone levels are usually about 15-30 mg/day. During the first few weeks of pregnancy the levels usually double or triple and is produced everyday during pregnancy. By the third trimester, levels rise to as much as 10 to 15 times the normal amount.

A normal progesterone level in the first month can range anywhere between 9 and 47 ng/ml. A lot of the time a woman will have a level closer to 10 ng/ml during he first few weeks of her pregnancy. The level of progesterone will increase as the pregnancy progresses and the woman's doctor will usually have the level tested.

Progesterone is a hormone released during pregnancy to maintain it and the normal amounts are essential for the vascularization of the fetus and for the placenta to grow normally. A drop in progesterone during pregnancy induces labour.

Progestrone levels will need to be in excess of 20, if not you may need to go on progesterone supplements to help maintain the pregnancy. You should discuss this with your ob if you are concerned.
