Progesterone

Progesterone

A primary female sex hormone that affects secretions in the endometrial glands. A healthy progesterone level contributes to a healthy pregnancy carried to term, and it may be given via injection or through vaginal suppositories (fun times) to increase chances of implantation and reduce miscarriage risk. Progesterone is produced by the corpus luteum, which develops after ovulation, so the presence of progesterone is usually a good indicator ovulation has occurred.
