How to naturally increase progesterone

Posted Dec 21 2010 3:03pm
Does your menses start before 14 days have past following ovulation?  If so, you may have something called Luteal Phase Defect, which has to do with insufficient progesterone.  PRO-GEST erone as you can probably guess, is necessary for nurture a pregnancy.  Your doctor can take an endometrial biopsy to look at your levels, but what might be simpler is looking at you basal temps and seeing if they  are falling too quickly post-ov.

The good news is, you can supplement with vaginal suppositories (need your doctor to write you a script) and there are many herbs such as wild yam that can help and there are foods that will help.  Here's a great article on the food, which includes things like soy, walnuts, etc:  http://www.ehow.com/facts_5008973_foods-naturally-increase-progesterone.html
