Barbara, do I need Progesterone? How do I know?
Here are the symptoms of Progesterone Deficiency:
Breast Tenderness / Fibrocystic Breasts
Mood Swings / Irritability
Excess Facial or Body Hair
Heavy or Painful Periods
Poor Concentration / Memory Lapses
Loss of Muscle Mass
Night Sweats / Hot Flashes
Causes of Low Progesterone and the Imbalance between Progesterone and Estrogen:
Progesterone comes from the ovulatory process. No ovulation, no progesterone. But it is not easy to know if you ovulated. You will still have a cycle, whether you did or not.
So…you have to go by your symptoms.
Causes of Imbalance Between Progesterone and Estrogen
Poor Liver Function
Birth Control Pills
Synthetic Hormone Replacement Therapy HRT
