#208: Should I Take Progesterone?
Show Notes

Should I take progesterone? This may be a question you have been asking yourself lately. I know I’ve been getting it a lot lately! 

Progesterone has become a hot topic lately, especially between conventional and 
functional medicine. It is one of the key hormones we have as women. It’s our natural anti-anxiety hormone and is what keeps estrogen in check. But how do we know when we may need to start taking progesterone? And is it really any different from the progestins in birth control?

In this episode I’m diving into what exactly progesterone is, when it’s beneficial to take it, and why it’s a GAME CHANGER for things like perimenopause!


You’ll hear more about:

  • What progesterone is (and what it isn’t)
  • The power of progesterone in the female body (hint: it’s not just for your uterus!)
  • What happens to progesterone in your 40’s
  • Progesterone vs progestin
  • The 3 big women’s health issues where progesterone can be a game changer
  • And more!
