Progesterone books

Below is a list of progesterone books I recommend. The first section is about progesterone exclusively. The other sections are on related health matters. Although the availabiliy of progesterone books is limited, I'll be adding to the list regularly so please bookmark this page and come back often.

Although a few good books have been written on the subject perhaps my top recommendation is The Miracle of Bio-Identical Hormones by Michael E. Platt, M.D.

In 1981, following the premature death of his mother from breast cancer, Dr. Platt discovered that keeping hormones in balance might be a path to wellness, a concept which was not taught in medical school. He also became aware, that if his mother had been receiving natural progesterone, she may have lived.
