Progesterone To Relieve The Symptoms Of Menopause

If you’ve been frightened by the potential side effects of estrogen therapy to treat the symptoms of menopause, then perhaps progesterone is the answer.

The risk of stroke and cancer from estrogen replacement therapy has left women alone to deal with hot flashes and night sweats, often depriving them of sleep and daytime productivity.

Progesterone has been used in hormone replacement therapy to treat menopausal symptoms, but it is typically thought of as an add-on to estrogen therapy to help protect the uterus from abnormal thickening. It is approved by the Food and Drug Administration to for that use, and for abnormal menstrual bleeding symptoms.
A few studies have looked at whether progesterone alone can also help relieve menopausal symptoms, such as hot flashes (also called hot flushes), but the findings have not been very promising.

It seems that women vary greatly in which therapy work best.

Consult your physician to find the best solution for your menopause symptoms.
