Progesterone Testing

What is Progesterone?

Progesterone is a hormone naturally produced by the body. It helps equip the body for pregnancy in various ways, including preparing the uterus for embryo implantation. It also plays key roles in fertility and the menstrual cycle. Progesterone is elevated after the body’s monthly ovulation, but it dips if ovulation does not occur.

Our Progesterone Test determines your body’s Progesterone levels from the blood sample you collect. Regular monthly ovulation and egg release is crucial for those who are trying to become pregnant. The test analyses blood collected on day 21 of your menstrual cycle, which allows the analysis to see if ovulation occurred as expected.

Fertility issues are also concerns for those with irregular menstrual cycle activity. If you have irregular, heavy, painful, or absent periods, testing for your Progesterone levels will help you understand whether you are experiencing fertility issues, the onset of menopause, or another problem.

Why consider a Better2Know Progesterone test?

If you have concerns related to abnormal Progesterone levels, this test is beneficial. It is particularly useful for those planning to get pregnant, those struggling to conceive, and those with problematic menstrual cycles.

Explain the Better2Know Your Body testing process?
