Best to speak with your nurse/physician about your concerns. I was always on progesterone 200mg 2x a day from ovulation until next cycle, and stopped it if it was a bfn, continued for bfp.

atitagain :  I think a progesterone level of 5 is supposed to indicate ovulation. But 6.5 is definitely on the low end. That’s a tough tell 😕

I don’t have any experience with clomid, but I’ll share my experience with progesterone.  I was at one year ttc and just starting some initial fertility testing with my dr.  She had me do a progesterone test at 7dpo, and said that anything over 5 meant I ovulated, but they liked to see over 10.  When mine came back at 8.2, she sent me a message that basically said, “congrats, you ovulated!”.  But 3 days later when I happened to get a bfp, she changed her tune a bit and prescribed progesterone – 200mg/day suppositories, and wanted me to start them immediately.  Of course she didn’t say it outright, but I took her actions to mean that an 8.2 progesterone level at 10dpo would not have been able to support a pregnancy.  But I was able to come back from that and had a healthy pregnancy, so I don’t think you’re necessarily out with a 6.5.  I would take it if I were you.
