Progesterone is made in the ovaries. Progesterone production begins just prior to ovulation and increases rapidly until it reaches an average production of about 20mg per day. If an egg is not fertilized, progesterone production falls, triggering the menses. Progesterone is necessary throughout gestation for the survival of the fertilized egg, the resulting embryo, and the fetus. During pregnancy the placenta produces 300mg to 400mg of progesterone per day.

Progesterone has many other functions, among them protecting against fibrocysts, helping the body use fat for energy, and helping normalize blood clotting and blood sugar levels. Today, many health professionals claim that the symptoms associated with PMS and menopause are due not so much to estrogen, but to a deficiency of progesterone and an overabundance of estrogen. It is believed that progesterone balances estrogen and that an overproduction of estrogen can lead to health problems. Too much estrogen is known as estrogen dominance.

Bioidentical progesterone is progesterone. It is derived from a natural source and then converted to progesterone. Bioidentical progesterone has the same molecular configuration as the progesterone produced by the body and can be used to supplement the progesterone produced by the body and to balance oestrogen and progesterone levels. Bioidentical progesterone has no side effects. The standard dose is 20mg daily.
