It is important that you are not using hormonal contraception when collecting your sample as the results may not be accurate.
This test may not be suitable if you have an irregular menstrual cycle or if you have been taking hormonal contraceptives within the last three months.
When to collect your sample:
This sample must be collected 7 days before an expected period using the home collection kit* provided. This will depend on your cycle. If you have a 28-day period, you collect your sample on day 21 to confirm that ovulation has occurred.
The sample must be collected in the morning on a Monday - Thursday and returned on the same day. It may be necessary to wait until day 21 of your cycle falls on one of these days.
Who should be tested
This Progesterone-Ovulation testing will monitor ovulation on Day 21 of your cycle. By examining progesterone in the blood, the test result can decipher whether you are ovulating normally.
Progesterone imbalances may be caused by:
Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS)
Progesterone stimulates the thickening of the uterine lining. It helps to prepare the uterus for the implantation of a fertilized egg. Progesterone is checked on Day 21 of the menstrual cycle to confirm that ovulation has occurred.
