Please let me know the follicular monitoring scan results. Those are more important.

Brief Answer: EXPLAINED BELOW Detailed Answer: Hello Thanks for writing to us with your health concern. The progesterone values are lower than normal, so probably it indicates that ovulation has not occurred. However, it is very unwise to monitor a cycle of Clomid using these blood values. An ultrasound scan done serially would track the growth of the follicle and would provide direct evidence of ovulation. It is advisable to remain sexually active around the time of ovulation. Please provide me more details regarding the date of your last menstrual period, your normal menstrual cycle duration and the indication for fertility treatment. Take care.

Thanks alot E2 is 278 so i think this mean there is a mature follicle right ? I thought my report mean i am at pre ovulation phase

Brief Answer: DETAILED BELOW Detailed Answer: Yes the estrogen levels point to a mature follicle. The reports indicate pre ovulatory phase, but then on day 30 being pre ovulatory means you have highly irregular cycles otherwise. Is that so ?

Brief Answer: EXPLAINED BELOW Detailed Answer: It seems that the decapeptyl effect is wearing off. OVulation documented on ultrasound is confirmatory. Why not have an ultrasound scan also to see follicular size ? Do post the day 33 results though. Wish you luck.
