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.
Human Chorionic Gonadotropin (HCG) hormone levels can confirm pregnancy at the earliest. Beta hCG is produced by the body during pregnancy and can be detected within ten days after a menstruation cycle is missed, which is why this test is a must for those who are planning to conceive.
Are you planning a pregnancy?
If you are planning a pregnancy, you should take this test to find out if the results are positive. This test primarily confirms pregnancy.
If you're diagnosed with gestational diabetes, you'll need to follow a specific plan to manage your condition. This may include diet changes and regular exercise. You'll also need to monitor your blood sugar levels regularly.
Talk to your doctor if you have any questions or concerns about gestational diabetes. They can help you develop a plan that's right for you and your baby.
Why take a test?
>The 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.
Experts Opinion on Pregnancy Progress Tests
"Rising levels of HCG and progesterone normally detect a healthy pregnancy, and reducing levels can help diagnose if there are any pregnancy losses and is often used in clinics for that reason."
