Progesterone is a type of hormone produced mainly in the ovaries whose role it is to help regulate menstruation and pregnancy. During menopause, progesterone levels will drop precipitously, triggering a cascade of physical and emotional symptoms. The depletion can also lead to bone loss and the deterioration of skin elasticity, firmness, and strength.
Progesterone cream is a form of hormone replacement therapy (HRT) designed to help relieve menopausal symptoms, reduce signs of skin aging, and prevent bone loss that could lead to osteoporosis.
Progesterone cream may help improve the lives of women with menopause by assisting the body in reducing hot flashes and vaginal dryness, decreasing fatigue, improving mood and sleep, alleviating skin dryness, wrinkling and thinning. It may also support bone density, increased libido and weight loss.
