Has Progesterone Got You Down?
Years ago, my cycle started getting a little crazy, I was noticing more anxiety, spotting, and PMS…nothing I have ever experienced before, this was NOT normal. It never is normal!
I had been under a lot more stress, starting a business, moving, had a new baby and probably wasn’t taking the best care of myself. So, what did I do? Anybody who knows me knows that I love experimenting with things, this way I can not only make recommendations but also have a first-hand experience of how it may or may not work…for me anyways! So, what did I do first? I evaluated my hormones via a lab test.
A little progesterone background first: Progesterone is important for pregnancy, it is also the hormone which balances estrogen. It is responsible for maturing the lining of the uterus to support pregnancy. However, when pregnancy is not the case it is then responsible for initiating menses, enhancing mood and getting proper sleep. Progesterone and particularly it’s metabolite a-pregnanediol is calming, seductive, easing and neutralizes stress…this is very important in our cycle to prevent anxiety! So, when this lovely metabolite is not high enough or if it drops too soon we notice cranky pants…withdrawal…the dreaded PMS!
