HI
I am wondering what all of the numbers mean I received my blood test results back. I have a 32-34 day cycle, I had my Estradiol check mid cycle (day 14) it came back 131 pg/mL also my Progesterone is 0.7 ng/mL, Testosterone 0.7 pg/mL, can you tell me what this represents. I am NOT trying to get pregnant (I feel I am too old to start now) but do want to know what the chances of concieving are... Hopefully ZERO. I was told I had low progesterone, these results are from April 2009 so I am sure the numbers are different, but this is baseline to go on, with the numbers above what are chances of concieving. Last month I had a 29 day cycle started on June 25, 2010 my husband and I had unprotected "unsafe" sex on July 04, yes it was explosive :O I am worried of getting pregnant. PLEASE HELP!

Hi, and thanks for your medical question on eHealth forum!

For a mid cycle result the estrogen is normal but the progesterone is low. For successful conception, the figure should have been near double. Chances of conception are less but to be on safe side take a PT at home if you miss the periods.

If you do not want to conceive, please consult your gynecologist for a contraceptive method appropriate for your age. Hope this helps. Take care!
