Been told I need natural progesterone

I need to ask that if I have been told I may have low progesterone and need natural progesterone, what does this mean? Do I need to take tablets or some natural remedy? Is it for the rest of my life? Does it mean I am unable to get pregnant? Would this have anything to do with difficulty gaining weight? Please advise as I am confused. Thank you.

Been told I need natural progesterone
by: Wray

To find out if you are lacking progesterone please do the questionnaire on our website. If you do need it, progesterone cream is the easiest method. You will find instructions for use come with the cream. And no it doesn't mean you'll have to use it for the rest of your life, although has other benefits as studies have shown that it is anti-ageing and prevents deep wrinkles, keeping the skin strong and supple.

If you are hoping to fall pregnant extra progesterone will help if you are low in it, but normally the body makes sufficient to sustain a pregnancy. And no it won't affect putting on weight. Hope this helps. Take care Wray

Low progesterone level
by: lisa

I'm 40 and have been trying to fall pregnant for two years. I was told recently that I have low progesterone but the doctor has not explained this nor given me anything to take. I am currently attending the Royal Women's Fertility Clinic year, blood tests etc. Still no result. Lisa, Melbourne, Victoria.

Low progesterone level
by: Wray

Hi Lisa I'm a bit puzzled why you haven't been given progesterone if the level is low. It is necessary for a successful pregnancy. We do have a web page devoted to conception and pregnancy you might care to read, I'll give the link below:

If you have more queries, please email me from the 'contact us' link at the bottom of each web page.
Take care Wray
