Progesterone Test in Ahmedabad
A progesterone test measures the level of progesterone in the blood.
To identify the reason of infertility, tracking ovulation in women, help identify an ectopic or failing pregnancy, monitor the state of pregnancy, supervise progesterone replacement therapy, or help understand the cause of abnormal uterine bleeding.
Doctor may recommend this test for you if you have been facing infertility from a long time. During early pregnancy when symptoms show an ectopic or failing pregnancy; during a high-risk pregnancy to help detect placenta and foetal health and/or when a woman has abnormal bleeding during urination.
Progesterone is a steroid hormone whose pivotal role is to help prepare the women’s body for pregnancy. It operates in cross-collaboration with various other female hormones. This test determines the level of progesterone in the blood.
Reference Values Of Progesterone Test
In general, normal serum progesterone test results fall in the following ranges:
- men, post-menopausal women, and women beginning their menstrual cycle: 1 ng/mL or under.
- women in between their menstrual cycle: 5 to 20 ng/mL
- women in their first trimester of pregnancy: 11.2 to 90 ng/mL
Interpretation of progesterone test results depends on intent for testing in first place. Interpreting the results of progesterone tests needs information and thorugh knowledge of the woman’s pregnancy or menopausal status. Progesterone levels usually begin to rise when an egg is released from the ovary, show a rising trend for several days, and then either continue to rise when a sperm fertilizes it leading to early pregnancy or when unfertilized, fall to initiate menstruation (menstrual bleeding).
If progesterone levels remain constant without showing any rise or fall on a monthly basis, a woman may not be ovulating nor having regular menstrual periods. This may be a cause of infertility.
If levels do not rise normally during an early pregnancy, the pregnancy may be ectopic (faulty fertilization of egg which in not productive) and/or may be failing. If serial measurements do not show increasing progesterone levels over time, it could indicate something wrong in the foetus, and can be an alarming condition requiring medical attention in order to prevent abortion.
