    if you compare these 2 studies:
    male: http://www.neurovr.org/emerging/book6/II_05_Hirschenhauser.pdf
    female: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2096416/

    you may notice progesterone ranges:
    male: 1000...4500 nanogram/milliliter (figure 5.2)
    female: 100...600 picogram/milliliter (figure 1)

    question:

    1) how come male has 4 orders of magnitude more progesterone then female?
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Orders_of_magnitude_(mass)

    2) can you link for more meaningful/trustworthy studies?
    ideally measuring male and female levels in the same study?

    Good catch. Somebodies data is hosed. Need to look elsewhere for reasonable representative values to make a call on which.
