Progesterone is a hormone naturally produced by the ovaries in women. In menopause, the natural production of progesterone ceases leading to hot flashes, fluid retention, and even some bleeding. Bio-identical progesterone dramatically improves the symptoms of pre- and post-menopause as well as protects against osteoporosis, uterine and breast carcinoma, fibrocystic disease, ovarian cysts, and cardiovascular disease. In premenopausal women, progesterone can be used to treat the symptoms of Premenstrual Dysphoric Disorder (PMDD), more commonly known as Premenstrual Syndrome (PMS).
It is important not to use synthetic progesterone because it has been shown to be harmful in some women. Naturally occurring progesterone is not harmful, and in fact, it has been shown to protect against ovarian cysts, osteoporosis, uterine and breast cancers.
