What is a healthy progesterone level?

What s a healthy progestron level? I had blood test done on day 22 of my cycle. My results came back as 15.7. Is that good? Also, had my thyroid tested, and it came back slightly increased 5.3. The OB-GYN suggessted to start meds for thyroid .50 synthroid . My family doctor suggested to leave alone and monitor thyroid TSH ,T3,T4. Have great respect for both doctors which makes me feel bad to question either of them!!! Not sure what to do with thyroid meds, and if Progestron is healthy. thanks Elle

Thanks for using Healthcaremagic,

You have asked about two hormone that is Thyroid and Progesterone. Your progesterone level on 22 nd day of cycle is within normal limits this hormone level keeps changing with menstrual cycle and responsible for continuation of pregnancy in case pregnancy occurs.

Your TSH is 5.3 which is slightly high and suggest subclinical hypothyroidism.
In such cases I treat my patients with low dose of thyroxine and repeat thyroid function after 1 month and depending on result dose of thyroxine may be adjusted.

Please discuss with your treating doctor and take treatment regularly.

Hope this helps.
Wish you good health.
