Progesterone: Names and Benefits

Progesterone is an important hormone for women. It plays a role in regulating reproductive cycles, helps maintain pregnancy, and prevents overgrowth of the uterus lining. There are many types of progesterone available on the market, here are the most popular ones:

  • Natural Progesterone: This type of progesterone is derived from plant sources, such as yams and soybeans. It is often used in bioidentical hormone therapy (BHRT), which strives to replicate natural hormones in the body.

    Synthetic Progestins: Synthetic progestins are chemically similar to natural progesterone but not exactly identical. They can be used in hormonal birth control or to treat conditions like endometriosis or menstrual pain. Examples of synthetic progestins include norethindrone, medroxyprogesterone acetate, and levonorgestrel.

    Micronized Progesterone: A drug called Prometrium is made from micronized progesterone, which means that it has been formed into tiny particles for easier absorption into the bloodstream. Prometrium is sometimes used as part of hormone replacement therapy for menopausal symptoms or during assisted reproductive technology treatments.

    There are many potential benefits to using bioidentical progesterone therapy including improved regulation of menstrual cycles and periods, relief from menstrual cramps and PMS symptoms, better skin tone and complexion, protection against uterine cancer, increased libido, improved fertility, decreased hot flashes during menopause, relief from mood swings and irritability associated with premenstrual syndrome (PMS) or menopause transition (perimenopause), stronger bones due to higher levels of calcium retention in postmenopausal women, improved sleep quality and more restful sleep patterns.
