A progesterone test may be used:
To help recognize and manage some causes of infertility. Since progesterone levels vary throughout the menstrual cycle, multiple (serial) measurements can be used for this purpose.
To determine whether or not a woman has ovulated, when ovulation occurred, or to monitor the success of induced ovulation
In early pregnancy to help diagnose an ectopic or failing pregnancy, along with human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) testing
To monitor a high-risk pregnancy to help evaluate placenta and fetal health.
If a woman is receiving progesterone injections to help support her early pregnancy, to help determine the effectiveness of the replacement treatment
Along with other tests such as an FSH, LH, hCG, thyroid tests, clotting tests, and a complete blood count (CBC) to help determine the cause of abnormal uterine bleeding in non-pregnant women
