Let’s talk about low progesterone symptoms in females!
Progesterone is a naturally-produced, steroid hormone that stimulates the uterus to prepare for pregnancy. Having ‘normal’ levels of progesterone is important for women of all ages because in addition to being necessary for healthy pregnancy it also aids in keeping the entire body functioning in a healthy and balanced way. Progesterone is the happy and calm hormone, and the last thing you want is low progesterone symptoms in your life!
Some of the symptoms of low progesterone in females include:
- hot flashes
- irregular cycles

The reasons you may have low progesterone symptoms in females include:
