WHAT IS PROGESTERONE THERAPY?

Feeling tired? Slight bloating, weight gain or mood swings could point to progesterone imbalance.

HOW DOES PROGESTERONE THERAPY WORK?

Progesterone is a natural female hormone that some women lack. Progestins work by decreasing the amount of estrogen in your body, which can lead to menstruation and other hormonal changes when it's replaced with progessterones like those found in HRT therapy.

About Progesterone Replacement Therapy

Progesterone is a hormone that occurs naturally in the body. It can also be made in a laboratory. "Progestin" is a general term for a substance that causes some or all of the biologic effects of progesterone. The term "progestin" is sometimes used to refer to the progesterone made in the laboratory that is in oral contraceptives and hormone replacement therapy.

Women commonly take progesterone to help restart menstrual periods that unexpectedly stopped (amenorrhea), treat abnormal uterine bleeding associated with hormonal imbalance, and treat severe symptoms of premenstrual syndrome (PMS). Progesterone is also used in combination with the hormone estrogen to "oppose estrogen" as part of hormone replacement therapy. If estrogen is given without progesterone, estrogen increases the risk of uterine cancer.
