During perimenopause and menopause, hormone imbalance can lead to discomforts such as hot flashes, night sweats, insomnia, vaginal dryness, or irritability. These complaints are often present in postmenopausal as well. During the reproductive years, hormone imbalance may cause premenstrual complaints such as water retention, breast tenderness, migraines or mood swings. In a woman's body the majority of progesterone is secreted by the corpus luteum, which forms in the ovary following ovulation. During the second half of each monthly cycle, from ovulation until menses, progesterone is designed to be the dominant hormone. Not all women produce sufficient amounts of progesterone during the second half of their cycle. Prior to menopause, as ovarian function wanes, cycles frequently occur where a woman does not ovulate (known as an anovulatory cycle). This period leading up to menopause is referred to as "perimenopause." Anovulatory cycles that begin in perimenopause can lead to hormone changes that may result in hot flashes, changes in bleeding patterns, PMS-type symptoms, as well as many other menopausal symptoms. While progesterone levels fall close to zero due to anovulatory cycles at menopause, estrogen levels may only decline to about 40-60% of pre-menopausal levels.
What is Progesterone? Progesterone is a hormone that your body makes. It plays an important role in balancing out the effects of estrogen and other hormones. If you have too much estrogen and not enough progesterone, your body may be thrown out of balance. It is common for women who are approaching perimenopause, and even through menopause, to produce smaller amounts of progesterone. Pro-Gest natural progesterone cream can supplement your body's own progesterone levels and lead you back to a state of natural balance.*
