Libido & Natural Progesterone

The Female Body manufactures many types of Estrogen but only one Progesterone and Natural Progesterone is the Source of Libido or Sex Drive in Women!

Sources of Natural Progesterone

Natural Progesterone is normally produced by the female ovaries right after ovulation and balances the side effects of otherwise unopposed estrogen.

Under the influences of dietary estrogens, petrochemicals, stress, and menopause, Progesterone production ceases or is suppressed and the effects of Estrogen Dominance, can be observed.

Most women experience Loss of Libido, mood swings, irritability, anger, depression, headaches and weight gain from the lack of Progesterone that is required for proper thyroid function.

Natural Transdermal Progesterone Cream, applied topically to the face, neck, arms, chest and fatty tissue areas of the body such as the breasts, the abdominal area, the buttocks, the inner thighs, etc., is stored in these fatty tissues for use as required by the body.


Conversely, the effects of too much estrogen are listed below:

  • Increased Body Fat

  • Depression

  • Migraine Headaches

  • Blood Sugar Irregularities

  • Excessive Blood Clotting

  • Reduced Vascular Tone

  • Endometriosis

  • Infertility

  • Interference with Thyroid Function

  • Loss of Libido (Sex Drive)

  • Anger, Rage

  • Uterine Cramping

  • Water Retention

  • Loss of Zinc, Retention of Copper

  • Increased Risk of Breast Cancer

  • Increased Risk of Ovarian Cancer

  • Increased Risk of Endometrial Cancer

  • Restraint of Osteoclast Function (bone loss)

  • Reduced Oxygen in All Cells (Foggy Brain)

It is also important that we distinguish Natural Progesterone from its counterparts in the drug industry - PROGESTINS. Although these drugs are commonly referred to as Progesterone, this is a misnomer.

In some ways they mimic the effects of Natural Progesterone in the body, but in other important ways they gravely interfere with Natural Progesterone and can create and exacerbate hormone related health problems, and be a primary contributor to Estrogen Dominance.

Traditional Treatments

Traditional treatments have included tranquilizers, diuretics, dietary changes, thyroid supplements, herbs, vitamins, exercise, acupuncture and psychiatric counseling. While these may provide some easing of symptoms, the underlying causes remain.
