Daily urine specimens were assayed previously for estrone 3-glucuronide (a metabolite of estrogen) and pregnanediol 3-glucuronide (a metabolite of progesterone).

One study compared self-report of cycle day with urinary pregnanediol concentrations to demonstrate that over 30% of women presenting for ECPs had inaccurately dated their own menstrual cycles, believing themselves to be in the fertile phase of their cycle when they were not.
We reported that PORD had high urinary Ptl concentrations and that the ratio of 11[beta]-hydroxyandrosterone (11HA) to pregnanediol (PD) could differentiate PORD from C21OHD in 3 infants between the ages of 1 and 3 months (3).
The women in the Yusho cohort were found to have irregular menstrual cycles and low urinary excretion of estrogens, pregnanediol, and pregnantriol (Tsukamoto, Makisumi, & Hirose, 1969).

6 mg of levonorgestrel on day 10 of their cycle showed that the treatment seemed to suppress the midcycle luteinizing hormone peak (which induces ovulation), but did not appear to influence the formation and function of the corpus luteum, since the urinary excretion of pregnanediol (the main metabolite of progesterone) was normal.
