Frequently asked questions about progesterone

What is progesterone?

Progesterone is a naturally occurring female sex hormone responsible for regulating ovulation, pregnancy, and preventing certain diseases (namely uterine cancer). Progesterone also helps regulate functions such as:
- Bone density
- Weight management
- Skin health
- Sleep
- Mood


As a hormonal supplement, progesterone is commonly prescribed for women who have passed menopause or women who experience irregular menstruation. Progesterone levels are usually at their highest during pregnancy. It is frequently used in birth control pills for this exact reason – it can actually trick the body into not ovulating. Progesterone levels usually start to decrease after menopause, which can lead to an increased risk of ovarian and uterine cancers.

What is progesterone used to treat?

Progesterone is commonly prescribed as a part of hormone replacement therapy, a treatment that supplements low levels of certain hormones. Low levels of progesterone are diagnosed through a blood test.

Common symptoms of low progesterone include:
- Irregular menstruation
- Shortened menstrual cycles
- Mood changes (anxiety or depression)
- Breast tenderness
- Weight gain
- Decreased sex drive
- Vaginal dryness


Progesterone supplements restore hormonal balance in the body and can help the symptoms listed above.

How does progesterone work?

Progesterone is a naturally occurring hormone in the body. However, progesterone is prescribed for individuals who have been diagnosed with hormonal deficiency - meaning that the ovaries and adrenal glands are not producing enough of the hormone.

Progesterone medication works by supplementing low hormonal levels in the body through an oral tablet. These capsules release progesterone into the body, which restores hormonal balance and reduces the symptoms of low progesterone.

What are the common side effects of progesterone?

Progesterone has been shown to cause some side effects. If these mild reactions do not go away within a few days, talk to your health care provider.

Common side effects of taking progesterone include:
- Nausea/ stomach pain
- Diarrhea
- Headache
- Fatigue
- Mood changes
- Vaginal discharge


This is not a complete list of adverse effects.

Seek medical attention immediately if you experience unexplained breast lumps, numbness in the hands, legs, or feet, difficulty breathing, or sudden mood changes. These are potentially serious side effects that should be treated right away.

Talk to your doctor about any pre-existing medical conditions you may have, as well as any medication or supplements you are taking before starting treatment with progesterone. These hormone supplements may interact with drugs or previous conditions, causing adverse effects.

What is the typical starting dose of progesterone?

The typical starting dose of progesterone will vary depending on why the medication has been prescribed. Hormone supplementation is a very individualized treatment process. Follow your doctor's orders on how often to administer your dosage, and be sure to inform them right away if you begin to notice any adverse effects.

Progesterone is taken for 10-12 days in a row, usually at bedtime.

Do not increase your dosage or discontinue the use of progesterone supplements unless ordered to do so by the prescribing health care provider.
