What is Progesterone?


  • Progesterone is a hormone produced by the ovaries. It helps regulate the menstrual cycle of women along with estrogen.

Progesterone aids in immunity, reduces swelling and inflammation, stimulates the production of thyroid gland, and keeps blood-clotting levels at normal values.

  • Progesterone is also known as an “anti-aging” hormone.  It keeps bones strong, produces collagen, and helps keep nerves functioning at appropriate levels.

As a woman ages, levels of progesterone and estrogen begin to decline. This leads to menopause.

  • Low progesterone levels contribute to aging, because less collagen means less skin elasticity, which contributes to skin wrinkling.

Symptoms of low progesterone include:

Mood Swings, Depression, Insomnia, Appetite/Weight changes, Irritability, Lack of concentration, anxiety, fatigue, frequent/irregular menstruation, low sex drive, migraines, PCOS (Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome), Vaginal dryness, and painful intercourse.

  • Treatment is hormone replacement therapy.
