In brief: Bloodwork or biopsy

A Progesterone deficiency can be diagnosed by bloodwork around day 20 or a biopsy a few days after ovulation.
A Progesterone deficiency is a sign of an ovulation problem and the treatment is to fix ovulation. Most of the drugs used to treat this require a prescription.
