is normally defined as the end of menstrual cycles. The unpleasant
symptoms of menopause that some women suffer such as hot flashes,
vaginal dryness, and mood swings are peculiar to western industrialized
societies. Menopause is often associated with the end of a womanï¿½s
sexuality and the beginning of old age, and arthritis.
What does progesterone have to do with menopause?
ovulatary cycles, progesterone levels typically decline before
menopause starts and this is followed by a decline in estrogen.
Progesterone production tends to fall to almost zero while estrogen
declines to about 40% to 50%. This situation leads to an imbalance
between estrogen and progesterone causing an increase in estrogen
activity, which is now described as estrogen dominance.
What is estrogen dominance?
clear that estrogen when unopposed or unbalanced by progesterone is not
something to be desired. Stated differently, many of estrogen's
undesirable side effects are effectively prevented by progesterone. Dr.
Lee has named this syndrome estrogen dominance. This syndrome occurs mostly in industrialized countries and commonly occurs in the following situations:
- When women are on estrogen replacement therapy;
- Premenopause when early follicle depletion results in the lack
of ovulation and thus a lack of progesterone well before the onset of
- Exposure to xenoestrogens which is the cause of early
follicle depletion. Xenoestrogens are foreign substances found outside
the body in the air and food that have an estrogen effect on the body;
- Birth control pills with an excessive estrogen component;
- Women who have had a hysterectomy leading to dysfunction of the ovaries;
- Post menopause, especially in overweight women
The following is a list of symptoms that can be caused or made worse by estrogen dominance:
- Fat gain,
- Memory loss,
- Uterine cancer,
- Uterine fibroids,
- Breast tenderness,
- Decreased sex drive,
- Gallbladder disease,
- Acceleration of aging,
- Fibrocystic breasts,
- Foggy thinking,
- Increasing risk of strokes.
cases the symptoms are eliminated. I have not encountered any substance
which is more effective than progesterone in relieving PMS."
- Dr. Louis Marx, Psychiatrist (From Dr John Lee's Medical Letter)
women find that by supplementing their hormone production with natural
progesterone they will reduce many or most of their menopausal
symptoms. The presence of progesterone in the body sensitizes estrogen
receptor sites thus enabling estrogen to work more efficiently.
Progesterone is a precursor to other hormones in the body including
estrogen, testosterone, and especially the corticosteriods.
woman's ovaries make two hormones, estrogen and progesterone. When
these hormones are out of balance, hormone related illnesses can emerge.
is one of two main hormones, the other being estrogen, made by the
ovaries of menstruating women. Progesterone is also made in smaller
amounts by the adrenal glands in both sexes and by the testes in males.
When a woman's monthly cycle is functioning correctly, estrogen is
the dominant hormone during the first two weeks of the menstrual cycle.
In response to ovulation, progesterone assumes dominance for the final
two weeks of the month. When the pituitary gland in the brain sends a
message to the ovaries to stop production of progesterone, the
menstrual cycle begins within 48 hours of this message.Progesterone
is essential for survival and its deficiency can cause a wide range of
problems. Natural Progesterone cream applied topically is stored in the
fatty tissues ready for use as needed by the body to reverse the toxic
effects of estrogen dominance.
