Progesterone Total and Free

Test ID: 


CPT code:

84144, 84999

Clinical Use:

Progesterone plays an important role in the secretory transformation of the endometrium, maintenance of gestation, and relaxation of the myometrium. Progesterone is also a marker for ovulation and luteal phase of the menstrual cycle. Steroid hormones (like progesterone) circulate in the blood in protein-bound and free forms, and it is the free form that exhibits biological activity. The free form of progesterone is expected to reflect the biological activity of progesterone.
