20 Reasons to Keep Your Progesterone Levels in Check

Are migraines and mood swings ruining your life?
Does PMS stop you in your tracks several days each month?
Do you suffer from painful endometriosis or ovarian cysts?
Have you had difficulty trying to get pregnant?
Have you lost sexual desire?
Would you give anything just to feel good again?

If you can relate to the questions above, then you know something’s going on with your body, but you may not be able to pinpoint exactly what it is. Did you know that these are just a few of the symptoms that can be caused by low progesterone levels? This is why it is so important to keep your progesterone levels in check.

You may or may not have heard the term “estrogen dominance,” but it basically refers to low progesterone levels, when estrogen is not balanced by progesterone. Take a look at some of the common symptoms women experience when they have estrogen dominance:

Common Symptoms and Disorders Associated with Low Progesterone
Here are 20 reasons to keep your progesterone levels in check:

1. Severe menstrual cramps
2. Heavy periods with clotting
3. Irregular menstrual cycles
4. Uterine fibroids
5. Ovarian cysts
6. Endometriosis
7. Infertility
8. Multiple miscarriages
9. Fibrocystic breast disease
10. Premenstrual breast tenderness
11. Premenstrual fluid retention and weight gain
12. Anxiety, panic attacks or depression
13. Premenstrual mood swings
14. Premenstrual headaches
15. Migraines
16. Decreased libido
17. Infertility
18. PMS
19. Increased risk of endometrial and breast cancer
20. Poor sleep

Progesterone has many other positive effects on your body, such as enhancing thyroid function and promoting bone health.

You might accept these symptoms as just part of being a woman, but contrary to what you may have been told, these symptoms are not normal. They are a sign that your hormones are out of balance. Your doctor may have offered you options such as surgery, a hysterectomy, or prescription drugs, however, none of these will correct what’s really causing the problem. You need progesterone.

Kathryn’s Story
After her horrible accident, Kathryn’s hormones were severely affected. She had ovarian cysts, irregular periods and then went into early menopause in her twenties.  Her doctors told her she would never have children.  Watch her powerful story to find out how Kathryn was able to have not one, but four children, and learn what balancing your hormones can do for you!

Dr. Hotze discusses the anxiety-progesterone deficiency connection:

If you have been experiencing any of the above symptoms, then you owe it to yourself to try bioidentical progesterone. By replacing what your body is missing, you can eliminate your symptoms and bring your body back to good health.  Contact a wellness consultant today at 281-698-8698 to help you get on a path of health and wellness, naturally.

  1. Your post was very helpful! I was lead to your article to find out more about increasing my progesterone. I am going through perimenopause and I took a while to figure out. I’m slowly getting my body back in check. Anxiety was a big part of my perimenopause but that all changed when I supplemented properly and completely changed my diet to organic… it has really helped me a lot  Thanks for great post, as expected ^^

I’ve been a guest at this facility for 15 years. They are the most efficient, thorough and caring group of individuals I’ve ever experienced. Dr Hotze looks to change the way a typical doctor treats patients and looks for root causes to eliminate medical issues instead of treating “symptoms”. My life has improved 100% since my initial visit. The cost of the treatments are worth it.

I cannot accurately describe in words how I feel about this practice and the entire staff. I have had quite a few health issues throughout the years, rheumatoid arthritis, sjogrens, weight gain, hair loss, irritability, and that is just the beginning. I had pretty much given up on feeling good, just decided to "live with it" and hope for the best. Two very close friends love the Hotze Wellness Clinic and they have experienced life changing health. Made my appointment and from the beginning I felt heard. Not a in and out fast food style practice. They are looked and are looking at my entire body for overall health and wellness. Connections from mind and body to clinical blood work, even dental questions....they care and I feel as if I can trust them. I am on a path to complete wellness and my goal is to have my RA back in remission as it once was....make yourself a priority. Having hope is an incredible feeling!
