Progesterone is a hormone produced by the ovaries and adrenal glands. There are progesterone receptors in the brain, breasts, blood vessels, and vagina. Over time, levels of this essential hormone decline with menopause. Progesterone is so important that it is necessary during the premenopausal, peri-menopausal, and postmenopausal stages of a woman’s life to maintain optimal cognitive and physical function.
One of the most troubling symptoms of menopause is often insomnia, which can be rapidly and dramatically treated with progesterone therapy. If progesterone is replaced when it declines it can significantly improve, if not eliminate, symptoms of PMS and menopause. Additionally, women who have had hysterectomies often benefit from being on progesterone therapy.

Progesterone is very important hormone. It helps to regulate the menstrual cycle. Progesterone is considered the “serenity” hormone as it acts to balance out the effects of estrogen dominance such as erratic mood swings and anxiety. In addition, Progesterone has anti-cancer effects. In fact, the research shows that part of the reason why estrogen therapy has been linked to cancer was because it wasn’t “balanced” out with progesterone.
