A progesterone test is used to determine:
- Determine the source of a woman's infertility (the inability to make a baby)
- Determine whether or not you are ovulating.
- Find out if you are at risk of miscarriage.
- Keep track of a high-risk pregnancy.
- Recognize an ectopic pregnancy, which is a pregnancy that develops in the wrong place (outside the uterus). An ectopic pregnancy is fatal to a developing baby.
- A woman's health is jeopardised by this condition, which can be fatal.
