The “Feel Good” hormone! Lindsey Blaha, PA

Progesterone is vital to our wellbeing.  It’s our “Feel Good” hormone! Naturally produced by our body, we begin to decrease production of all of our hormones as we age.  Progesterone is one of the first hormones we stop producing.

 

Common symptoms associated with Progesterone Deficiency may include:

  • Difficulty sleeping
  • Irritability
  • Anxiety
  • Loss of libido
  • Sweating
  • Loss of memory/memory fog
  • Migraines
  • Weight gain
  • Carbohydrate and sugar cravings
  • Osteopenia/Osteoporosis
  • Dry eyes
  • Cold hands and feet
  • Fatigue

When Estrogen is too high in relation to Progesterone levels, such as in younger women who have not yet gone through menopause, common symptoms may include all of the above plus:

  • PMS- Premenstrual Syndrome
  • Breast swelling and tenderness
  • Heavy, painful periods
  • Irregular periods
  • Bloating
  • Uterine fibroids
  • Infertility
  • Fibrocystic breasts

Because there are Progesterone hormone receptors throughout our entire body, even women who have had a hysterectomy and those who are not yet going through menopause can benefit from Bio-identical Progesterone.
