How important is progesterone to your body?
Progesterone is another important hormone in our body. Although it’s present in both genders, it plays a much more important role in females than in males. Progesterone is one of three main sexual hormones in women, which play crucial roles in the menstrual cycle during the reproductive age. The average age for a woman to experience menopause is 50. That’s the time when women go through probably the most difficult time in their lives. Typically symptoms like hot flashes and the night sweats are the most common. These symptoms are caused by estrogen fluctuations in the body. Several years prior to this menopausal thunderstorm, women go through a much lighter, much more gradual transition from feeling good to having more and more anxiety and nervousness, sometimes becoming very moody and even depressed. This stage is all about having a progesterone deficiency. The ovaries will gradually make less and less progesterone and intern women become more and more symptomatic. Most commonly their family members will notice that new behavior change. At MyVita Health Wellness Center we see a lot of women who went to their doctors and were placed on anxiety medications and anti-depressants. These symptoms are most likely related to a progesterone deficiency and can be treated with bio-identical progesterone supplementation with results of not only relieving the anxiety, but happier you!
