What does Natural Progesterone Gel do?
Women throughout the world are becoming better acquainted with the health benefits of natural progesterone. Natural Progesterone Gel reduces the symptoms and discomfort of Menopause, PMS, and Pre-menopause.
What is Menopause?
Menopause is normally defined as the end of menstrual cycles. The unpleasant symptoms of menopause that some women suffer, such as hot flashes, vaginal dryness, and mood swings are peculiar to western industrialized societies. Menopause is often associated with the end of a woman’s sexuality and the beginning of old age, but it doesn’t have to be that way!
What does Progesterone have to do with Menopause?
A woman's ovaries make two hormones: estrogen and progesterone. When these hormones are out of balance, hormone-related illnesses can emerge. Due to ovulation cycles, progesterone levels typically decline before menopause starts, which is in turn followed by a decline in estrogen. Progesterone production tends to fall to almost zero while estrogen declines to about 40% to 50%. This situation leads to an imbalance between estrogen and progesterone causing an increase in estrogen activity, something now described as estrogen dominance.
What is Estrogen Dominance?
It is clear that estrogen, when unopposed or unbalanced by progesterone, is not something to be desired. Stated differently, many of estrogen's undesirable side effects are effectively prevented by progesterone. Dr. Lee has named this syndrome Estrogen Dominance.
Many women find that by supplementing their hormone production with natural progesterone they will reduce many or most of their menopausal symptoms. The presence of progesterone in the body sensitizes estrogen receptor sites thus enabling estrogen to work more efficiently. Progesterone is a precursor to other hormones in the body including estrogen, testosterone, and especially the corticosteroids.
Progesterone is one of two main hormones, the other being estrogen, made by the ovaries of menstruating women. Progesterone is also made in smaller amounts by the adrenal glands in both sexes and by the testes in males. When a woman's monthly cycle is functioning correctly, estrogen is the dominant hormone during the first two weeks of the menstrual cycle. In response to ovulation, progesterone assumes dominance for the final two weeks of the month. When the pituitary gland in the brain sends a message to the ovaries to stop production of progesterone, the menstrual cycle begins within 48 hours of this message.
