Imbalances In Progesterone and Its Effect Upon Women’s Health

Common signs that a woman can have when she is progesterone deficient are:

  • Amenorrhea — no period at all; there is no ovulation; the ovaries are producing only a bare minimum of progesterone
  • Anxiety, irritability and nervousness
  • Breasts with lumps [cystic breasts]
  • Cold body temperature
  • Fatigue
  • Foggy thinking
  • Headaches
  • Heavy and frequent periods; this situation could be related to tissue buildup in the uterus because of a prolonged progesterone deficiency
  • Mood swings
  • Most cases of endometriosis [tissue from inside the uterus attaching to organs in the abdomen], and fibroids [a growth within the uterus wall]
  • Oligomenorrhea — the period comes infrequently, perhaps every few months; this is also a result of minimum progesterone production
  • Weight gain
  • Painful breasts
  • Premenstrual syndrome [PMS] — Most PMS symptoms, whether physical or emotional, are progesterone related. Initially, they may occur for a few days before the period, from the time of ovulation until the onset of the period.
  • Spotting a few days before the period; here the progesterone level is dropping rapidly and prematurely during the monthly cycle
  • Water retention

Signs of excess progesterone only occur when too much progesterone is taken, as a woman’s body cannot make excess progesterone. Signs of excess progesterone are:

  • Affects the estrogen receptors
  • Bloating
  • Breast swelling and pain
  • Candida overgrowth
  • Edema [water retention]
  • Excess facial hair
  • Increased acne
  • Low sex drive
  • Mild depression
  • Nausea
  • Oily skin
  • Sleepiness / lethargy
  • Syndrome X [hyperinsulinemia / insulin resistance]
