Top 6 Reasons A Young Woman May Have Low Progesterone "The Happy Hormone"

Top 6 Reasons A Young Woman May Have Low Progesterone "The Happy Hormone"

Did you know that many young women experience low levels of progesterone long before reaching perimenopause or menopause? It’s important to remember that the body produces progesterone with ovulation. So, if ovulation is disrupted for any reason, progesterone levels begin to drop. Let’s explore some of the reasons behind a lack of “The Happy Hormone” in young women.
 
1. Chronic stress. During times of stress, the adrenal glands release cortisol. This hormone literally competes with and depletes progesterone. Stress and the resulting low progesterone often contribute to fertility issues and miscarriages among many health conditions.
 
2. Insulin resistance. Hormones are chemical messengers that trigger bodily responses. However, some women are resistant to insulin, an important hormone produced by the pancreas that helps stabilize blood sugar. When our cells don’t receive insulin, ovulation and
the release of progesterone is compromised. There are two common conditions that may result in insulin resistance: PCOS and obesity.
 
2. Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS). Polycystic ovarian syndrome is thought to be the most common endocrine disorder found and affects women of childbearing age. Women with PCOS typically have an “ovulation disorder” and have a history of irregular cycles or no periods at all. This of course means the body isn’t producing progesterone, which will affect fertility.
 
4. Hypothyroidism. For those with hypothyroidism, the thyroid doesn't produce enough T3, the main hormone responsible for creating progesterone. This lowers progesterone levels and impairs fertility. The use of bio-identical progesterone cream promotes healthy thyroid function.

You can buy our naturally pure bio-identical progesterone cream, called Feminine Balance Therapy at www.organicexcellence.com. It can really help naturally restore hormone balance in young women, as well as women of all ages.
 
5. Poor diet and lifestyle. Nutrient rich foods and the vitamins they provide are essential to hormonal health. Too much processed food, sugar, carbohydrates and fast foods can quickly create hormonal imbalances. Moderate exercise has a powerful effect on balancing our hormones, however excessive strenuous or high-intensity exercise has been shown to lower fertility in women through reduced levels of progesterone.
 
6. Birth control pills. These tiny pills made of synthetic hormones prevent pregnancy by suppressing ovulation. In essence, the use of birth control pills replaces the natural hormonal rhythm of your body, which can have long-term effects on your hormonal health and fertility.

Make your hormones happy!
