FoolsintheRain :  if that progesterone level was from 2 dpo, then it won’t honestly tell you much; you want it 7dpo. If you did ovulate but your progesterone drops far down by 7dpo, then that could be an indication for progesterone supplementation bc you may not give  enough of an opportunity for a fertilized egg to implant, etc

FoolsintheRain :  can’t comment on the progesterone but the TSH is good. I concieved when mine was around 3.1, and now (17 weeks pregnant) my endo keeps it under 2.5. The pregnancy levels are more important than the TTC levels although I’ve heard it’s easier to conceive if your TSH is around 1-2 so you’re fine 😊

FoolsintheRain :  You need to have the blood taken at 7dpo to get an accurate picture. They call them the 21 day bloods because for the average cycle day 21 is also 7dpo. If your cycle is different the result won’t be the right.

How old are you? I understand you wanting to get things checked out, but you need to give yourself a bit more time (I am assuming you are under 35 here) Most people will get pregnant within 1 year of active trying. This is why most doctors won’t start doing any proper tests until that time. This is reduced to 6 months if you are over 35.

If you got pregnant easily first time and have had a CP the chances are you will have a healthy pregnancy soon. It might just take a little longer this time.
