Progesterone plays a vital role in health and fertility. Having low progesterone can make it more difficult to get pregnant.
So, what is progesterone and how can you tell what your progesterone levels are? What happens if you have low progesterone?
What It Is Why You Should Track Symptoms How to Track What to Do
Progesterone is a hormone primarily produced following ovulation each cycle. After you ovulate, progesterone works to thicken the uterine lining to prepare for a fertilized egg. If there is no fertilized egg, progesterone levels will drop and a period will begin. If an egg does implant in the uterine wall, progesterone helps maintain the lining throughout pregnancy.
Tracking your progesterone levels can provide good insight on your overall health and fertility. Elevated progesterone will confirm that ovulation has actually occurred.The hormone will only surge if an egg was released. Tracking progesterone is also helpful in understanding if your levels are too low, which can have adverse effects on health and fertility.
