The Progesterone Home Blood Test measures levels of progesterone in the blood, helping you to determine whether you have high, low or average levels. Low progesterone levels can cause a host of issues associated with hormonal imbalance, including difficulty conceiving or infertility in women. It can also help to indicate or explain issues during pregnancy. This test is also recommended for anyone looking to diagnose issues with the adrenal glands, which can often be caused by high levels of progesterone in both men and women.

Hormones: Hormones govern every activity of your body, from growth and metabolism to reproduction and your sleep cycle. Even a small imbalance in your hormone levels can have a significant impact on your health, affecting your mood and energy levels as well as fertility and libido. Hormones are known as chemical messengers which are manufactured in your glands and released into your bloodstream. They instruct your body in everything it does – regulating appetite, growth, mood and reproduction. Generally they keep the body functioning and in balance. Hormone disorders are common and can often be put right through hormone replacement therapy or lifestyle changes. Hormone levels fluctuate throughout the day and, for women, through the reproductive cycle.
