Ayurvedic Approach to Progesterone

What is progesterone?

This is the calming hormone. Progesterone main job is to get your uterus ready for pregnancy. After you ovulate each month, progesterone helps thicken the lining of the uterus to prepare for a fertilized egg. If there is no fertilized egg, progesterone levels drop and menstruation begins.

 

  • Dominate in 2nd half of your cycle
  • After 35 progesterone starts to decline rapidly 
  • Low progesterone is common if you’re not ovulating 
  • If high estrogen often progesterone can be low ***but not always! 
  • Dutch Test- for your specific cycle needs
