Progesterone is a sex hormone released by the body. It is also known as the “pregnancy hormone.” It is produced normally during the menstrual cycle. Women produce progesterone in the ovaries, the placenta, and the adrenal glands during pregnancy. It is a regulatory hormone that plays a crucial role in maintaining the menstrual cycle and pregnancy. It prepares the uterus for pregnancy, after ovulation each month by thickening the uterine lining. As the fertilized egg gets implanted in the uterus lining, it is progesterone that helps maintain the thickness of the wall. If the egg does not get fertilized progesterone level falls and the menstrual cycle begins. It also plays a role in the development of the breasts. It has a synergistic effect with estrogen which is also a female sex organ. During pregnancy, progesterone helps maintain normal breast tissue, prevents lactation, and strengthens the pelvic bone to prepare for labor

Low levels of progesterone hormone can lead to difficulty in achieving pregnancy and maintaining it. It is absolutely important for the levels of progesterone to rise during the menstrual cycle. Lack of which would lead to the failure of the egg to be implanted in the uterus. It not only plays a crucial role before pregnancy but also during it. If the levels are too low the uterus is unable to maintain the pregnancy till the full term. A consistent supply of progesterone to the endometrium sustains the developing fetus throughout pregnancy. Its salient role is played during the first 8-10 weeks of pregnancy before the placenta takes over as the chief supplier of nutrition to the growing fetus.
