Embracing the Transformation: Replenishing Progesterone during Perimenopause and Menopause! 🌸✨

Welcome to a transformative journey that many women embark upon in their lives – perimenopause and menopause. These natural stages of a woman’s reproductive life can bring about significant changes and challenges, but fear not! In this blog post, we will explore the benefits of replacing deficient progesterone, delve into the symptoms of perimenopause, understand the role of progesterone in the body, compare oral and topical progesterone, and shed light on the symptoms of declining hormones. So, let’s dive in and nurture and support ourselves through this incredible journey of transformation! 🌺💪

Understanding Perimenopause and Menopause:

What’s perimenopause? Experience a pre-menopause stage where your body adjusts to hormonal shifts. Usually starts in late 30s/early 40s, with symptoms like hot flashes or mood swings. It happens because your ovaries make less progesterone. Finally, after a year without periods, you reach menopause (around age 50, but can vary).

Symptoms of Perimenopause:

Perimenopause can bring a multitude of symptoms that vary from woman to woman. Anxiety, depression join the menopause party. These changes can feel overwhelming, but remember, you are not alone! Embracing the journey and seeking support can make a tremendous difference. 😌💜

The Role of Progesterone:

Its functions extend beyond reproduction and impact various aspects of well-being. Progesterone helps regulate mood, improves sleep quality, and provides breast benefits by supporting healthy tissue development. By restoring progesterone levels during perimenopause, you can experience improvements in mood, sleep, and overall vitality. 🌙😊

Dropping progesterone can mess with your body, especially before your period or during menopause. Remember, everyone’s different, and other things can play a role. Here’s what might happen:

Premenstrual Syndrome (PMS):

In the days leading up to menstruation, progesterone levels naturally decrease. This can contribute to symptoms such as mood swings, irritability, anxiety, breast tenderness, bloating, and fatigue.


Perimenopause refers to the transitional phase before menopause when hormone levels fluctuate irregularly. During this time, women may experience symptoms similar to those of menopause, including irregular periods, mood swings, fatigue, and changes in menstrual flow.


As women near menopause, signaled by the end of periods, progesterone levels drop a lot. This change can cause various symptoms like hot flashes, night sweats, trouble sleeping, dryness down there, lower sex drive, mood swings, and problems with focus or memory.

Oral Progesterone vs. Topical Progesterone:

When replacing progesterone, there are various ways to do it. Taking progesterone by mouth is often prescribed and helps with sleep and lessening anxiety. Alternatively, using creams or gels with progesterone directly on the skin gives specific benefits in that area. Talking to a healthcare pro will help figure out which way works best for you. 😊💡

Replenishing Progesterone:

To boost progesterone levels, a doctor might recommend bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT). BHRT uses hormones that are just like the ones your body makes. The prescribed progesterone can be taken by mouth or applied on the skin, depending on what works best for you. It’s important to follow the dosage and instructions given to get the best results. 🩺💊

Declining Hormones and Their Symptoms:

Besides progesterone dropping, estrogen and testosterone levels also decrease in perimenopause and menopause. Symptoms of low estrogen include hot flashes, vaginal dryness, and mood swings. Low testosterone levels can cause lower sex drive, fatigue, and less muscle mass. Spotting and dealing with these symptoms can really boost your life quality during this changing time. 🔥🌸

Embrace the Transformation:

By taking care of your body and boosting progesterone levels, you can see amazing changes in your life. Picture feeling refreshed, sleeping better, being happier, having a stronger sex drive, and more energy overall.
