Deficiency

What is Progesterone Deficiency?

Progesterone deficiency tends to occur as you age. Progesterone cream is recommended for individuals who are experiencing a hormone imbalance, which may lead to irregular and uncomfortable premenstrual and menopause symptoms, low testosterone levels, and fatigue due to illnesses caused by a stressed immune system.

Progesterone and Menopause

Menopause is a normal condition that describes any change a woman experiences before or after menstruating—ending her reproductive period. Menopause can also be described as the cessation of ovulations, which causes a hormone imbalance, thus leading to symptoms associated with menopause. Menopause usually occurs in women between ages 45 and 55. It is preceded by a variable period of time called pre-or peri-menopause.

Certain factors can affect the age of natural menopause, such as smoking and genetics. Smokers often experience menopause about 2 years earlier than non-smokers. Menopause genetics is the likelihood of starting menopause around the same time as your earlier family members. Early menopause is before age 40 and late menopause is after age 55.

Individuals with progesterone deficiency often experience:

  • Depression
  • Menopause and peri-menopause complications

  • Decline in muscle mass
  • Painful joints
  • Elevated stress levels
  • Chronic fatigue

Should I consult a physician before starting to use progesterone?

Progesterone cream is a safe and effective hormone treatment that can benefit your overall health and well-being. However, it is recommended to consult your physician before you begin using any supplement.
