Progesterone is an important hormone that affects overall vitality.  The Progesterone levels of most women start to decrease significantly after the age of 40 and as they age, they gradually produce less and less of it. This can wreak havoc on a woman’s body and her sex life. Lowering progesterone levels often leads to a loss or decrease in sex drive or libido, and it can even be the root cause of some female sexual dysfunctions. Symptoms of low progesterone include:

  • Low libido
  • Hot flashes
  • Migraines or headaches
  • Depression, anxiety or other mood changes
  • Menstrual cycle irregularity or absence

Progesterone Replacement Therapy (PRT) with implanted pellets is the only method of progesterone therapy that gives sustained progesterone levels throughout the day, day after day, without any “roller coaster” effect.  Delivered through a small implant under the skin, it is a form of progesterone therapy that releases a perfect level of progesterone calibrated to what the body will use.

Oral progesterone is given through a bio-identical pill. Unlike conventional synthetic hormones, bio-identical hormones are chemically identical to those found in the body, also sometimes called human hormones. As such, they are believed to provide a number of advantages over their synthetic counterparts.

Some benefits women experience with Progesterone supplementation:

  • Increased sexual drive
  • Protects against fibrocystic breasts
  • Natural diuretic
  • Acts as a natural antidepressant
  • Aids thyroid hormone action
  • Normalizes blood clotting
  • Helps keep blood sugar levels normal
  • Protects against endometrial cancer
  • Helps protect against breast cancer
  • Promotes bone building and protects against osteoporosis
