      What is Progesterone?

      Progesterone Replacement Doctor Humble TX

      Progesterone is the hormone secreted by the ovaries after a woman produces an egg during the middle of her menstrual cycle. Progesterone is the dominant female hormone for the last half of the menstrual cycle.

      Female Hormonal Balance

      The female hormonal balance between the estrogen hormones and progesterone is essential in order for women to obtain and maintain health and wellness. The three human estrogen hormones (estrone, estradiol, and estriol) have numerous effects on the body which require the balance of progesterone to prevent the hyper effects of estrogen dominance which can lead to a host of health problems.

      Good health occurs when the hormones in the body are produced in adequate amounts and are in balance. Think of this as hormonal harmony, as if the hormones are a symphony orchestra. If one section of the orchestra is too loud, say the brass section, then this will drown out the other sections of the orchestra and ruin the symphony.
