17 OH progestrone

what is the normal level for 17 oh progestrone.
is a value 325 high and could be the reason for my infertility.
I do have facial hair and hair near on my  chest.
and my hair on the scalp is getting thinner and thinner.
Please advise.
Thanks.

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...???
