Question about Clomid and Progesterone Levels

Hi all,

I know I have posted on here before, but I am undergoing Clomid treatments and am seeking advice from anyone who has taken it before. Last month was my first cycle, and I was informed by my doctor that my levels were a 2 at the 23 day blood draw, and therefore had not ovulated. As a result, she prescribed a higher dosage (I went from 50 to 100 mg) and just went in for my second day 23 blood cycle draw yesterday. I will say that as far as symptoms go, I had every hot flash and emotional reaction on the 100 mg, and with the 50, I didn't feel it at all. Luckily, the symptoms do die down after the pills are gone, but I had hope that if I felt the symptoms this time, maybe I ovulated and maybe I was even pregnant.

I guess all this is to ask if anyone is any good at knowing about progesterone levels and if that can indicate early pregnancy. I had my blood results emailed to me this morning because my doctor has that as an option, and they were at a 13.5. My doctor told me that being as close to a 10 as possible indicates ovulation. Naturally, I got excited and wondered if I could even be pregnant, so I took a test and it came back negative, but it is still early (I'm only on day 24) so I'm trying not to get my hopes up. I guess I was just wondering if anyone had a similar experience, and if there are any success stories you can share with me on Clomid. If so, what were your progesterone levels at on your day 23 blood check if you had conceived that cycle? thank you in advance!
