Since I'm guessing at your intent, I'd say the easiest way to control would be to use birth control pills. ...Read more

Luteal phase defect: Low Progesterone levels may be associated with a cause of recurrent miscarriage called a luteal phase defect and is treatable with first trimester progesterone.

A 20% rise every 2-3 days may be normal and eventually you plateau. ...Read more
Dihydrotestosterone: Dht is one of two metabolites of testosterone (estradiol is the other). You can easily check for both via simple blood draw. Reference ranges will vary depending upon lab & equipment used, therefore specific test ordered. High Dht is associated w/hair loss & enlarged prostate.
