welcome to hcm,
short answer: progesterone levels are to be taken in mid-leuteal phase that is plus or minus 7 days of ovulation or before bleeding. in all women. side effects include flu like symptoms with chills and sore throat and cracked nipples.and inverted nipples.
detailed answer : progesterone is the precurser of sex hormones like testosterone and estrogen. and is secreted primarily by ovaries in female the secretion of progesterone varies with ovulation. taking oral progesterone tablets can vary the progesterone levels in your serum so doing a progesterone after taking the pill will be of less clinical importance.
progesterone helps make the lining of your uterus thicker, helping with good implantation and keeping the lining thick enough to support the growing fetus this is its use . side effects include chills fever like symptoms sore throat and cracked and inverted nipples.
