About this package
Progesterone is an endogenous steroid hormone that aids in the implantation of the fertilized egg in the uterus. It is produced by the adrenal cortex as well as ovaries and testes. It is also secreted by the corpus luteum and the placenta and is responsible for preparing the body for pregnancy and, if pregnancy occurs, maintaining it until birth. Estimating progesterone levels is important in assessing the probability and risk of ectopic pregnancy, determining the cause of infertility, and diagnosing abnormal uterine bleeding. Low levels of progesterone are a marker of incipient pre-eclampsia/toxemia in a pregnant woman. Avail of the home collection services for this test at an affordable cost.

When the needle is inserted for drawing blood, a pricking or stinging sensation might be felt. The respective skin area might appear irritated, swollen or reddish on rare occasions.

Males have a small amount of progesterone hormone in their blood but due to absence of any established role of progesterone in male body, the test is usually not suggested unless the male is suspected of any specific adrenal diseases.

The hormone levels increase during ovulation, i. e., the release of an egg from the ovary, and keep rising for a few days. Further increase in progesterone is noted during early pregnancy. If a female is pregnant with two or more babies, progesterone levels might be higher than females pregnant with one baby.

The synthetic form of progesterone is called progestin, which is often found in a few contraceptive pills. It is commonly used in hormone replacement therapy for females in their post-menopausal stages that still have their uterus.

No special preparation is demanded before taking this test. An intravenous blood sample is needed for this test.

Progesterone is a crucial female sex hormone. It is essential for implantation of a fertilised egg in the uterus and for maintaining pregnancy. Fluctuating levels of progesterone might be of concern in abnormal menstrual periods and menopausal symptoms.
