Negative Proof

This Fertility & Pregnancy Institute library entry is in response to a question on if a proof test is negative.

The proof tests are not super precise. Like, for example, our Mama who had a chemical pregnancy, got positive proof tests. It turned out that her progesterone still wasn’t as high as it needed to be. So proof is detecting the progesterone metabolites and that’s useful so that we have an option to look at home. But it’s not so precise, it ensures that your levels are high enough to maintain a pregnancy. So just because you get a positive proof test, doesn’t mean that you should count on that being that your progesterone level is three or higher, or 10 or higher. 

In the scientific literature, we viewed three as the cutoff for indicating ovulation. But when you go into a doctor’s office, they’ll usually be looking for a level of 10 or higher to indicate ovulation. So with that being said, when the proof test is negative, then more than likely their progesterone is very, very low. So what I would recommend here is that you do the dynamic testing. So that’s the cycle mapping, get the complete one, which is but that measures both your sex and your stress hormones. That’s really valuable information. And remember, there are these incredible feedback loops between the two. And you can do that with us at FPI or you can do it outside of FPI, however, is best for you. When you do it outside of FPI. Just make sure that you choose a doctor that has a strong understanding of fertility so that you can help you interpret it better in the context of your fertility.
