Drop in progesterone

Feeling more stressed and depressed lately? 

Wondering why your mood swings are so unpredictable and intense? 😔

The culprit may not be you but your hormones. Specifically, your progesterone levels. 

Progesterone is a hormone that’s essential for your reproductive health:

  • It regulates your menstrual cycle.
  • Prepares your body for pregnancy.
  • Supports brain function.
  • It also has a calming effect on your mood.

Recent research shows that progesterone acts as a “stress-buffering” hormone, helping you cope with stress 😤and shielding you from its negative effects. It even plays a role in preventing depression and anxiety by balancing neurotransmitters like serotonin and dopamine.

But what happens when your progesterone levels drop? 🤔

Well, that’s exactly what happens during second puberty (age 35-55), the transitional period before menopause. As your ovaries produce less progesterone, you become more vulnerable to stress, anxiety and depression. 

Taking care of your progesterone levels is crucial during this time to improve your mood and mental health. You can take steps to boost your progesterone and feel better. 💪
