What Is It?

PGSN, also known as Progesterone, S is a screening that measures the level of progesterone present in the blood. In females, progesterone is a hormone produced in the corpus luteum (a normal cyst that forms on the ovary every month during ovulation), the ovaries, the adrenal glands, and during pregnancy by the placenta and it plays a vital role in fertility and pregnancy. In males, progesterone is produced in the testicles and the adrenal gland and is a building block of testosterone. PGSN screening is a simple blood test.
