8 Signs your Progesterone is low

Progesterone is one of the key hormones in a woman’s body. In proper balance with Estrogen and Testosterone, it functions to regulate menstrual cycles, improve fertility, ease menopausal transition and PMS, promote sleep and feeling calm, speed up metabolism and generates a general sense of wellbeing.

Here are 8 signs that your progesterone may be low:

  1. Insomnia
  2. Bloating and water retention, regardless of what you are eating…
  3. PMS to the max!
  4. Irregular or short period cycles.
  5. Menstrual cramping
  6. Fibroids or PCOS
  7. Infertility
  8. Anxiety

I will often test the levels of hormones via a dried urine test or salivary hormone test. From there a plan can be made to optimize your hormone levels and help to make these symptoms something of the past.
