Probably: Hi. High testosterone in women (usually of ovarian origin) can suppress LH & FSH (yes, in women), which can cause low progesterone.

Unclear: In a woman after menopause levels of these hormones are usually lower than earlier in life so definition of "low" is important. Consulting an obgyn or reproductive endocrinologist may be helpful.
