Low Progesterone Symptoms: Causes, Benefits and What to Do with It

Low progesterone symptoms are more common than you think.

The
female cycle is a dance, a rhythm in constant motion and we are along
for the ride. Estrogen and Progesterone are the dominant hormones that
run this cycle every month and they both play important roles.

Unfortunately,
our environment around us is filled with estrogen and xenoestrogens
which are chemicals that mimic estrogens in our bodies.

Plastics
and animal products contain chemicals that mimic estrogen in our
systems, creating estrogen dominance. When estrogen levels get too high
we see a variety of symptoms such as bloating, fibrocystic breasts,
menstrual irregularities, hair loss, PMS and low thyroid.

Many of us need an increase in Progesterone to help balance out the hormones.

As
women age and begin to enter perimenopause, we can have cycles where no
ovulation occurs. If we don’t ovulate, we don’t produce progesterone
and the estrogen in our system begins to dominate and become unchecked.

John
R. Lee M.D. states the following “In the ten to fifteen years before
menopause, many women regularly have anovulatory cycles in which they
make enough estrogen to create menstruation, but they don’t make any
progesterone, thus setting the stage for estrogen dominance.

Using progesterone cream during anovulatory months can help prevent the symptoms of PMS.

We
now know that PMS can occur despite normal progesterone levels when
stress is present. Stress increases cortisol production; cortisol
blockades (or competes for) progesterone receptors.

Additional progesterone is required to overcome this blockade, and stress management is important.”

So how do you know if you need a boost in Progesterone?

Low Progesterone Symptoms

  • Irregular Menstrual Cycles

Bioidentical Progesterone Cream
is available over the counter and it’s a great way to give your body a
boost in progesterone. If your body was low in progesterone you will see
an improvement in symptoms rather quickly. Many women have claimed
progesterone cream has given them their life back.

I personally
have seen huge improvements in my thyroid function after using the cream
and have noticed mental clarity as well as reduced migraine headaches
related to my cycle. Need some further info on progesterone?

Bioidentical Progesterone Cream
contains 20mg per one-quarter teaspoon. It is applied daily to a
thin-skinned area such as the neck, breasts, inner arms, ankles or
thighs. It’s best to rotate areas every few applications.

Use after ovulation or around the 14 days of your cycle.

Life-Flo Progesta-care Cream
is my favorite cream as it comes in a measured pump giving me the
correct dose each day so there is no guessing involved. I get the same
amount, 20mg of bioidentical cream each time.

Cleaning up what you’re eating will always assist your body in producing hormones.
