progesterone for men

I was wondering if the amount of progesterone used by women is the same for men.
How does this benefit men?

Many thanks
Robyn

progesterone for men
by: Wray

Hi Robyn Generally men need less than us, it's because they don't produce as much oestrogen as we do. So they don't have the severe symptoms we can suffer from. I usually recommend 10-100mg/day, but as with us, it depends on the severity of the symptoms. For instance if it's prostate hyperplasia, I would say nothing less than 100mg/day. For cancer nothing less than 500mg/day, it's very safe, see here. And our page on Traumatic Brain Injury. Stress generally needs high levels too. We do have a page on Man Boobs which gives some indication of it's benefits. Another on Prolactin which rises if we're stressed, in both sexes. But a rise in prolactin means dopamine drops, and with this depression and Anxiety can set in and Libido drops. Take care Wray
