I'm 21 year old and I tested my progesterone levels last week.

My progesterone was 1.94 during luteal phase. I have had problems like mood changes and memory loss. I can't concentrate on my studies.

Is this level 2 low. I have an appoinment with my doctor tomorow.
How can I increase my progesterone levels? Please give me your advice.

Hi Vridhi Your progesterone is low, it probably indicates you're not ovulating. Serum levels for the luteal phase vary from 5 to 20 ng/ml, see Medline Progesterone. Please ask your doctor to check for PCOS, as this could be one reason. The other more likely cause is a lack of vitamin D. You live in India, where the dress code is to cover up. Vitamin D levels are usually very low in Indian women, a lack of vitamin D prevents ovulation. It's also a probable cause of PCOS. Supplementing with progesterone will increase your level, I recommend 100-200mg/day. See our page on How to use progesterone cream for more info. Please also see our page on Oestrogen Dominance before starting progesterone, as this can occur. Please have a vitamin D test done, for more info see the Vitamin D Council, GrassrootsHealth and Birmingham Hospital websites. Take care Wray
