Progesterone is a hormone secreted in the ovary during the second half of a women's menstrual cycle, specifically tested on Day 21 of the menstrual cycle. Progesterone is produced in the corpus luteum and the adrenal glands. Progesterone plays an important role in determining whether ovulation has occurred thereby supporting pregnancy. Progesterone has been long used as an indicator of female fertility. It is important that the test is taken seven days before a new menstrual cycle begins.
Why take the test?
The Ovulation Progesterone Blood Test can detect the level of progesterone in your blood, if the progesterone level is low it may signify that your body has not produced an egg and hence cannot conceive in that particular month. A high level of progesterone is directly relative to high chances of pregnancy. A low progesterone level can indicate underlying issues and cause heavy menstrual flow and may also lead to miscarriage during pregnancy. Along with the report, we also provide our Certified Doctor's comments. Females who are planning a pregnancy can take this test to find out if their body is releasing healthy eggs which can be fertilised.
There are a few different types of ovulation progesterone blood tests, including the luteinizing hormone (LH) surge test, the basal body temperature (BBT) test, and the post-coital test. All of these tests can help you determine whether you are ovulating.
The LH surge test is done by measuring your LH levels in order to detect the Surge of Luteinizing Hormone that happens right before ovulation. The basal body temperature (BBT) test is done by taking your basal body temperature every morning before getting out of bed. This will help you see if there is a pattern to your body temperature, which may indicate that you are ovulating. The post-coital test is done by taking a sample of your cervical mucus after intercourse. This will help you see if the sperm are swimming freely, which may indicate that ovulation has occurred.
Talk to your doctor if you have any questions about which test is right for you.
Additional Insight from Dr Sameer Nakedar, MBBS, MRCGP, PGCert
'Ovulation' is the release of an egg from the ovary.
Understanding progesterone levels is essential if a woman is having difficulties with conceiving or undergoing fertility investigations.
If this test is taken at the right time and progesterone levels are too low, it is likely that ovulation did not happen. In some situations, a result can be borderline, where you can't conclude if ovulation has occurred or not, and it may be ideal to repeat the test at a later, more suitable date.

Experts Opinion on Ovulation Progesterone Tests
"Usually, in a woman's menstrual cycle, after ovulation occurs, progesterone levels begin to rise and tend to peak five days after. Typically, they are highest seven days BEFORE the next period (which is the 21st day AFTER the start of the last period). An adequate progesterone level signifies that ovulation has likely occurred. Typically, if the woman becomes pregnant, progesterone levels continue to rise. Hence, this test is helpful in understanding if a woman has ovulated and released an egg."
