Progesterone Blood Tests

Progesterone is a hormone that is naturally produced in the body, mainly by the ovaries in women. It plays a crucial role in regulating the menstrual cycle and preparing the uterus for pregnancy. 

This test is often used to assess a woman's fertility and to monitor the health of a pregnancy. In women, it helps determine if ovulation is occurring regularly and if there are any issues with the production of progesterone. Low levels of progesterone can make it difficult to get pregnant or maintain a pregnancy.

In pregnant women, this test can help identify any potential problems, such as an ectopic pregnancy or a miscarriage. It can also be used to monitor the effectiveness of hormone replacement therapy in menopausal women.
