Progesterone During Your Monthly Cycle
The day your menstrual cycle begins is day one of your menstrual month (not related to the calendar). From day 1 to about day 14, the estrogens should be the dominant female hormone. Then, in response to ovulation, estrogen levels should drop sharply and be replaced by progesterone (days 14-28). During this latter half of your menstrual cycle, the single master hormone progesterone should be the dominant hormone.
When your body fails to make a sufficiency of progesterone between ovulation & menstruation (days 14-28) and during menopause, you will suffer with symptoms of PMS/PMDD and very unpleasant Menopause.

How do EDC’s Affect My Progesterone Production?
EDC’s block production and use of safe, healthy levels of your body’s progesterone. Why does this matter?
Progesterone is the single most important hormone in the female body and is referred to as the “Master Hormone” in women. It is vitally important for the health of most cells and all organs.
Progesterone is the precursor for estrogen, cortisone & testosterone, source of libido in men & women.
The human brain contains many progesterone receptors, although the function of this primary hormone in brain function has not clearly been established.
The resultant Benefits of correcting a progesterone deficiency in your body include (but are not limited to):
- Progesterone helps Burn Fat for Energy
- It Supports Thyroid Hormone Action
- Progesterone Supports “Happy!”
- It is a Natural Diuretic
- Progesterone Supports Normal Blood Sugar Levels
- It Supports Proper Cell Oxygen Levels
- Progesterone Supports an Awesome, Healthy Libido
- Progesterone Normalizes Menstrual Cycles
- Progesterone Normalizes Blood Clotting
- Progesterone Helps Normalize Breast Cell Tissues
- Progesterone Strengthens Endometrium
- Progesterone Supports Normal Ovarian Function
Because the female body uses bioidentical progesterone to make optimal levels of the estrogens, a properly formulated biologically identical progesterone cream is the natural, safe choice for menstruating women and for menopausal women seeking to establish the correct balance of their two primary female hormones.
This optimal balance of Progesterone and Estrogens will protect them from the effects of the condition knwon as “Estrogen Dominance”.
Indeed, topical bioidentical progesterone is the safest and most effective way to correct deficient progesterone levels and balance the unwanted effects of too much estrogen.
