Can someone tell me what a normal progesterone level is for a non-pregnant woman?

When?: Depends on when during her cycle it is measured. Prior to ovulation levels are low, typically less than 1 to 2 ng/ml.

1-2 month delay: It can take 1-2 months for your body to revert back to its normal prepregnancy state where you begin to have regular periods again. It's unlikely that you'd be pregnant, especially if you're not having sex. A pregnancy test within a month of a pregnancy loss can still return falsely positive. Give it time, but get contraception for sure if you're trying to wait. I recommend waiting three months. ...Read more

Can you let me know how many days after a period does a woman ovulate?

Day 14 but it varies: In an idealized 28-day cycle ovulation occurs 14 days after the first day (cd 14) of the last mentrual period.
