What is the Progesterone Test?

The progesterone home test is a simple-to-use finger-prick blood test that checks you’re ovulating. Progesterone is a key fertility hormone that rises after and prepares your body for pregnancy.1


Why we love the Progesterone Test

  • The test shows you if you have ovulated during your current menstrual cycle or not and gives you a clear picture of your fertility.
  • You can take this test in the comfort and privacy of your own home, so there is no need to wait in a doctor’s surgery or clinic or try and get an appointment at the right time for you.
  • Access to your own personal and private online dashboard where you can track your test results and other health information.
  • Your sample will be tested by the same labs used by doctors, clinics, and hospitals, so the results are highly accurate.
  • A doctor will review your results and a friendly nurse will call you to talk through them with you. 

 And there are many more reasons…

 

  • The test kit is easy to use, even if you’re worried about taking your own blood sample.
  • Confidentiality: your test will be delivered to your home in discreet packaging and your results will be sent to your dashboard for your own records.
  • You can return your sample quickly and easily using the pre-paid envelope.
  • Fast results! Results are sent to your dashboard within 2-5 working days of the lab receiving your sample.
  • Clear step-by-step instructions are provided with your test and expert help is on hand at all stages of the process, with 24/7 access to a team of nurses to answer your questions.

Are there any drawbacks to the Progesterone Test?

  • It is important that you take the test at the right time during your menstrual cycle. It can be tricky to know when this is if your periods are irregular. If you have a regular cycle, the easiest way to ensure you are taking the test at the best time for you is to test 7 days before your next period is due.
  • If you are having any trouble understanding the best time to take your test, please contact our partners Let’s Get Checked.
  • It is important that you’re not using any hormonal contraception when you take the test because this can affect your results. After stopping hormonal contraception, it is best to wait until after three full menstrual cycles before you do this test.

 

 


Who should take the Progesterone Test?

  • You want to check that you’re ovulating normally because you’re thinking about trying for a baby now or in the future.
  • You are trying for a baby and it’s taking longer than you expected to fall pregnant. The test will help you to find out whether you are having any problems with ovulation.

When should I take the Progesterone Test?

  • Please take this test 7 days before you expect to start your period. So, if you have a 28-day cycle, you should take this test on day 21 to confirm that ovulation has happened. This is because your progesterone levels rise after ovulation.
  • You should take the blood sample in the morning before 9:00 am and before you eat anything.
  • Take your sample on Monday-Wednesday to ensure that it gets to the lab before the weekend. It is important to post your sample back to the lab on the day you have taken the sample too.
  • If your day 21 falls outside of these days, please contact our partners Let’s Get Checked to discuss the best day for you to return the sample.

How do I take the Progesterone Test?

  • Your progesterone levels are measured from a small blood sample taken from your finger.
