Progesterone and pregnancy

I'm taking progesterone cream and was wondering if it can make a pregnancy test positive when you're actually not pregnant?

Progesterone and pregnancy
by: Wray

Hi there A pregnancy test checks for levels of hCG, and not progesterone. Please see this excellent site here for more info on tests and levels of hCG and progesterone. I'm not sure how much progesterone you are using, but if the standard recommended amount of 20mg/day it won't raise progesterone to that of the luteal phase. In fact even 40mg/day only gives sub-luteal levels, see here. I recommend 100-200mg/day, for more info please see our page on How to use progesterone cream. We do have a page on Pregnancy which explains progesterone's role and it's use. Take care Wray
