What does "oh" stand for (in "17 oh")?

In general, progesterone is usually under 1.5 before ovulation and above 10 after ovulation.  325 seems very high, unless you're pregnant. I also don't think progesterone has anything to do with facial hair or hair loss. It's a normal female hormone. Did you mean testosterone?

I have the symptoms you mentioned and have been unable to conceive...  I read the first thread but I don't understand it myself.  My testosterone level is normal but I still have those symptoms you've mentioned above.  It's crazy, eh.  I know my hormones must be out of whack and that may be the reason I am not able to conceive right now.  My dr. once thought I had PCOS but I am not overweight and seem to ovulate regularly so now they (drs) don't think it's PCOS.   I went for cycle day 21 progesterone check Saturday.  I will know those results Monday.  Last month it was 11.  (Low Normal for Ovulation)

Any thoughts...???
