All things progesterone and fertility

cycle charting fertility hormones fertility testing Apr 28, 2024

Progesterone is an important hormone for fertility as it prepares the uterus for implantation by maturing the uterine lining so an embryo has a comfy and cushy place to call home. Since progesterone is the main hormone that rises and falls like a bell curve in the luteal phase, it gets a lot of attention, and for good reason. In today’s episode, I interview Kaely McDevitt, a Registered Dietician who specializes in fertility and we dive into all things progesterone and how it relates to fertility and a healthy menstrual cycle.  

Episode Highlights:

  • Understanding the role of progesterone in the menstrual cycle and fertility
  • Symptoms and effects of low and high progesterone levels
  • Importance of cycle tracking in determining hormonal health
  • Impact of birth control on fertility and the need for time to regulate hormones post-birth control
  • Progesterone creams and suppositories: what they are and how to use them effectively
  • Tips for women to support healthy progesterone production
