Do you need Progesterone to get pregnant?

Progesterone is referred to as the "pregnancy" hormone. It plays a vital role in preparing the uterus for a fertilized egg. It is imperative that you have enough progesterone and the right ratio between estrogen and progesterone to get pregnant and keep a healthy pregnancy.

There is a good amount of research in the last 10 years + that is bringing to light a potential imbalance between the ratio between estrogen and progesterone in women of all ages. If there is more estrogen in the body (and on the estrogen receptor sites), that leaves a relative deficiency of progesterone based on ideal ratios. The term that is used is "estrogen dominance".

I didn't want this post to by about 'why' we get estrogen dominant, you might want to look that up online or maybe I'll post about that next in my blog. The thing is once you're estrogen dominant, you might need to support your progesterone levels so you can get pregnant and not miscarry.

If you have symptoms such as tender breasts before your period, PMS, fibroids and/or fibrocystic breasts, heavy bleeding, bloating, carbohydrate cravings, migraines or headaches before your period, or fuzzy thinking then you could be estrogen dominant. The second half of your cycle is when progesterone should peak and if you don't have enough, you might experience these types of symptoms.

If you suspect that your progesterone levels are off you can have a blood test to check. The best day of your cycle to do this would be day 21 because that is when your progesterone level should be at it's highest. You could do it on day 22 or 23 as well.

If your levels are low, then you will want to support your self with "bioidentical" progesterone in the form of cream, vaginal suppositories, or sublingual pellets. Preferrably from a compounding pharmacy. You do NOT want to take progestins, synthetic progesterone, or even bioidentical progesterone orally (where you swallow the pill).

This is very often a key factor in getting pregnant. Less so if a woman is 20, but woman aren't usually seeking ways to optimize their fertility at 20. Usually, it's the women in their 30's and 40's who are seeking to optimize their fertility. It happens to be that beginning in our 30's our hormones begin shifting more and it can be possible that estrogen dominance becomes a factor.

I'm NOT saying that all women need progesterone supplementation to get pregnant. I am saying that if you have estrogen dominant symptoms and you've been trying to conceive without luck, or have had a miscarriage(s), it's a good idea to have your levels checked.

Progesterone deficiency is very probably a factor if a woman has had one or more miscarriage(s). It's the first thing I ask about when a woman tells me she's had a miscarriage(s).

Anyway, most traditional doctors don't consider estrogen dominance when trying to help a woman or couple conceive. So, it's worth you knowing about so you can learn more if you happen to fall in this category.

It's amazing how powerful hormones are, they are everything in terms of balance in our body and certainly must be stable for conception to happen.

Also remember that when you are aligning yourself with fertility, you'll more easily find what your system needs to get pregnant, vs. when you tend to be more aligned with infertility, you will find yourself more shut down to what might help you conceive.

Fertile Blessings,

I was in total despair when I found Dr. Todd. My life was going terrible and I didn't know if I was coming or going. I had just gone through a rough divorce, wasn't making enough money to sustain me and my children, and my 17 year old son had just gone to jail for the first time. When I talked to him, I immediately found a sense of peace. He was very honest with me and I could feel that. He also told me that everything would be okay. After my work began, things began to change. My bills were all caught up, the relationship I was in became much stronger, I was never FLAT broke, and my son was released from jail earlier than we expected!! I also completely got over the failed marriage and began to move on. And, received a better position at my job which will cause an $800 per month increase!! I felt completely comfortable with the work that was being done because I was always encouraged by Dr. Todd. manifestspellcast@gmail.com is the BEST!!!!

I felt like my life was about to end i almost committed suicide, i was emotionally down for a very long time. Thanks to a spell caster called Dr Ogidi, which i met online. On one faithful day, as I was browsing through the internet,I came across allot of testimonies about this particular spell caster. Some people testified that he brought their Ex lover back, some testified that he restores womb,cure cancer,and other sickness, some testified that he can cast a spell to stop divorce and so on. i also come across one particular testimony,it was about a woman called Sonia,she testified about how he brought back her Ex lover in less than 2 days, and at the end of her testimony she dropped PROPHET OGIDI email address. After reading all these,I decided to give it a try. I contacted him via email and explained my problem to him. In just 48hours, my husband came back to me. We solved our issues, and we are even happier than before Dr ogidi, is really a gifted man and i will not stop publishing him because he is a wonderful man...
