This test must be done 7 days before your next period is due (ie day 21 of a 28-day cycle). This test must not be done whilst you are taking the oral contraceptive pill otherwise the results will not be valid.
What does it look at:
This may be requested to check if you have ovulated (that is, released an egg from your ovary). Progesterone levels start to rise when an egg is released from the ovary and continues to rise for several days and then either continues to rise with early pregnancy or rapidly falls to start menstruation.
If levels do not rise (usually checked at Day 21 or Day 23 of your cycle– depending on your cycle length), you may not be ovulating properly. If concentrations do not rise normally during early pregnancy, the pregnancy may be an ectopic or a failing pregnancy.
