A lot of people have heard about hormone replacement therapy by now. Words like “estrogen” and “testosterone” are familiar, but when it comes to progesterone, this is a less-known hormone. The best way to learn more about progesterone injections and who is a candidate for them is to book an appointment at our office.
The Importance of Progesterone
Progesterone is a hormone that is naturally found in the bodies of both men and women. While a man’s progesterone levels stay stable throughout their life, women will see dramatic changes in this key hormone during pregnancy. Progesterone plays a key role during the first 10 weeks of a pregnancy. It helps makes sure the uterus has enough blood to take care of the fertilized embryo before the placenta forms. In addition to feeding the embryo, progesterone also helps develop breast tissue and strengthen the uterus. If the body does not get enough of this key hormone, then there likely will be complications with the pregnancy.
Who is a Candidate?
Progesterone injections were created over 50 years ago to help women that were struggling with carrying a baby to full-term. Anyone that has suffered at least two miscarriages will be a strong candidate for progesterone injections.
Of course, you will have to meet with a qualified medical professional before getting approved for progesterone injections or any other type of hormone replacement therapy. During a consultation at Le Reve Skincare & Laser Center, we can assess your unique situation and determine if progesterone injections can work for you.
