Diagnosis is usually a complex process due to the sheer number of possible causes and related symptoms.  In order to diagnose abnormal progesterone levels, we could:

  • Research the topic
  • Find a doctor with the time
  • Use a diagnostic computer system.
The process is the same, whichever method is used.

Step 1: List all Possible Causes

We begin by identifying the disease conditions which have "abnormal progesterone levels" as a symptom.  Here are two possibilities:
  • Progesterone Excess
  • Low Progesterone

Step 2: Build a Symptom Checklist

We then identify all possible symptoms and risk factors of each possible cause, and check the ones that apply:
regular drowsiness
high sublingual progesterone use
current birth control pill use
low energy/stamina
difficulty conceiving children
having hot flashes
angry/hostile disposition
history of candidiasis
poor mental clarity
jaundiced skin
taking high dose progesterone
... and more than 10 others

Step 3: Rule Out or Confirm each Possible Cause

A differential diagnosis of your symptoms and risk factors finds the likely cause of abnormal progesterone levels:
Cause Probability Status
Progesterone Excess 96% Confirm
Low Progesterone 50% Possible
* This is a simple example to illustrate the process
