When we consider women’s hormones, we often think about estrogen but did you know there are other hormones that regulate a woman’s menstrual cycle or reproduction? One of these essential hormones in the reproductive cycle is progesterone. As women go through menopause and the number of ovarian follicles declines, ovaries become less responsive to two reproductive hormones, Luteinizing Hormone (LH) and Follicle-Stimulating Hormone (FSH), which can no longer regulate hormones such as progesterone. As a result, women may undergo symptoms commonly associated with “the change of life,” such as hot flashes, a decrease in libido, weight gain, headaches, and mood swings.

But you aren’t doomed to waiting out the symptoms — progesterone therapy can replenish these levels. Restoring your progesterone levels through therapy can bring a number of benefits.

 

Improve Energy

If you are experiencing a decline in progesterone levels, you may feel rundown and exhausted but there’s hope. Progesterone therapy will boost your thyroid to kickstart your metabolism. You may drop a few unwanted pounds while boosting your energy. Talk to your physician about the positive effects of hormone therapies, as well as any potential risks.

 

Nurture Beauty from the Inside Out

Did you know progesterone therapy can have beauty benefits? Balancing hormones nourishes hair and skin. Progesterone dips as much as 75% before menopause — which causes an imbalance and can lead to acne, as well as excess facial hair. Restoring that balance can help.

 

Boost Your Libido

If you’re experiencing a drop in your sex drive, balancing your progesterone levels may help.
