: I'm not a lady, but I've done a lot of research into progesterone's role in getting pregnant. I'm willing to bet that in your case the miscarriage was definitely due to the low progesterone. In fact, that new RU486 pill blocks progesterone as its method of inducing an abortion. Your progesterone should be over 12 or so at day 21, and then it should increase over time to a much larger number (200 or so after the placenta is developed).
: I noticed some women talking about how they had low progesterone at day 21, so they're taking supplements to help get pregnant. That sounds crazy to me. Progesterone is helpful in thickening the uterus lining, its not useful in getting the egg fertilized. If you have low progesterone like 4 or 5, it suggests you didn't properly ovulate. Have you looked at PCOS, that's a common reason for it.

: : I am very interested in what all you ladies have to say. I just had an early miscarriage and 2 months ago my (day21) progesterone level was 1.2 yes (1.2). I wonder how I even ovulated. My M.D. said I would need clomid. How did I get pregnant with a progesterone level of 1.2? Any idea's. Is it possible that I ovulated but didn't have enough progesterone to "hold on" to the pregnancy?

Is progesterone level 11 exactly one week after an insemination good or mean I'm on my way to being pregnant ?
