The thyroid gland is situated in the middle part of the neck and it is so important that humans cannot live without the hormones it produces. It is responsible for the metabolic rate and function of the whole body – energy, weight control, mood, digestion, thought processes, muscle tone, hair texture, menstrual cycle… to name a few. The thyroid secretes thyroid hormones that tell cells and organs what to do. There are varying levels of thyroid dysfunction which are measured by looking at the blood levels of these hormones.
What is Progesterone ?
Progesterone is a female sex hormone produced mainly in the ovaries following ovulation each month. It is crucial part of the menstrual cycle.
Progesterone helps to regulate your cycle, but its main job is to get your uterus ready for pregnancy. After you ovulate each month, progesterone helps thicken the lining of the uterus in preparation for a fertilized egg. If there is no fertilized egg, progesterone levels drop again and menstruation begins. If a fertilized egg does not implant in the uterine wall, progesterone helps to maintain the uterine lining throughout pregnancy.
