Significance of test

Increasing progesterone level may indicate viable pregnancies. When it decreases, ultrasonography is required to confirm viability. In 8-10 weeks of gestation, serum concentration is relatively constant. If the pregnancy is failing, progesterone level is decreasing. After 10-12 weeks, levels increase more rapidly, but they are not considered suitable means for monitoring foetal well-being. Serial measurements of serum progesterone have also been used to check the effectiveness of ovarian and corpus luteum function.
