How Women Suffer Due To Low Progesterone

Most women are quite aware of the hormone Estrogen.  But very little is mentioned about the other hormone, Progesterone.  Progesterone is primarily involved in the menstrual cycle, fertility and pregnancy.  Estrogen gives women their feminine look and shape.  Progesterone is produced in the adrenal glands and brain.  Both of these sex hormones in a woman’s body dance a delicate dance together.  They are synergistic; meaning they must work together to create the proper and best effects on a woman’s reproductive system.  There are many nutrients in our body that pair up like a yin and a yang (i.e. sodium and potassium, calcium and magnesium, vitamin e and selenium…etc.).  When your hormones are in balance, everything from digestion to immunity works properly.

In my consultations I have come across women in their late 20’s up to their early 50’s which have had some very undesirable symptoms due to deficient progesterone.  Many pre-menopausal and menopausal women are loaded with estrogen.

Some Symptoms of Progesterone Deficiency
  • Irritability
  • Breast Tenderness
  • Fibrocystic Breasts
  • Acne
  • Anxiety
  • Bone Loss
  • Low Libido
  • Night Sweats
  • Irregular Periods
  • Vaginal Dryness
  • Depression
  • Insomnia
  • Infertility
  • Weight Gain
  • Hair Loss
  • Bloating
  • Mood Swings
  • Memory Lapses
  • Loss of Muscle
  • Nervousness
  • Excess Facial/Body Hair
  • Heavy or Painful Periods
  • Urinary Incontinence
  • Poor Concentration
  • Hot Flashes
  • Uterine Fibroids (due to estrogen dominance)

Low progesterone can easily be elevated via natural means.  It is important to clarify there are significant differences between synthetic (lab made) progesterone which is identified as “progestogen” and natural progesterone.  Hormone replacement therapy (HRT) or birth control pills do not have the same function in the body as our biological hormones. Presently, natural progesterone (bio-identical hormone therapy) is getting more recognition for its beneficial effects.  According to Dr. John R. Lee, an authority on hormone balancing, “natural progesterone has a molecular structure identical to the progesterone produced by the human body and is created through the fermentation process of the Mexican wild yam.” Natural progesterone helps to counter-balance the negative effects of too much estrogen.

The following is a chart of how Estrogen and Progesterone work together:
Estrogen Effects                                      Progesterone Effects
  • Increases body fat & weight gain
  • Increases risk of breast cancer
  • Breast cell stimulation can lead to cysts
  • Little or no libido
  • Depression, anxiety and headaches
  • Poor sleep patterns
  • Blood sugar can fluctuate
  • Increases potential blood clots
  • Slows bone loss
  • Fluid retention
  • Can affect thyroid function
  • Helps use fat for energy
  • Helps prevent breast cancer
  • Protects against breast cysts
  • Can restore normal libido
  • Calms anxiousness, antidepressant
  • Normal sleep
  • Normalizes blood sugar levels
  • Prevents blood clotting
  • Can help form new bone
  • Natural diuretic, prevents edema
  • Enhances thyroid function

If you suspect you have low progesterone levels, either contact me and I can confirm your level or make an appointment with your doctor and run a blood test.

Either way, OWN YOUR HEALTH!

** Caution: There are many progesterone creams on the market which contain soy, I highly suggest you steer away from those products. Soy tends to increase estrogen levels. I recommend a product by Kokoro. It is a quality product.
