Dr Brooke Show #324 All Your Progesterone Questions Answered

April 20, 2023

This episode is juicy! So many great questions from you all about all things progesterone and I was able to cover so many aspects of this “everything is gonna be OK hormone”. Our progesterone levels start declining in our mid 30s and we feel all sorts of symptoms from this including anxiety, irregular cycles, worsening PMS, anxiety, depression and insomnia.

This of course worsens during our 40s, under high stress, aren’t ovulating due to PCOS or HA or as we get into perimenopause. In this episode I cover the difference between low progesterone and unbalanced estrogen and progesterone (known as estrogen dominance), how to support your progesterone (i.e. can you do it with food, what supplements help, etc.), various considerations for using progesterone as part of HRT and even the less common occurrence of progesterone sensitivity.


This episode is also sponsored by Organifi whose green juice is my absolute favorite on the market. It’s certified USDA organic, contains 11 superfoods including the heavy hitters spirulina and matcha, includes 600mg of ashwaganda and is a great boost of antioxidants for better energy, less brain fog and better exercise recovery.
