Men need progesterone too. Progesterone helps to counteract the effects of estrogen in the male body which causes weight gain and gynocomastia, also known as "man boobs". Not only is progesterone found in males, but men rely on the so-called "female hormone" to preserve their masculinity. The fact is, progesterone is a precursor to testosterone - the male sex hormone.

FREQUENT ASK QUESTIONS
HOW CAN MEDICAL HEALTH INSTITUTE TREAT HAIR LOSS AND LOW LIBIDO WITH PROGESTERONE?
5-Alpha-Reductase is an enzyme responsible for converting testosterone into dihydrotestosterone (DHT). DHT is a potent hormone in males and is responsible, in part, for a healthy sex drive, muscle growth, and many other male functions. However, too much DHT can negatively affect the prostate and lead to hair loss. Progesterone is a significant inhibitor of 5-Alpha-Reductase, thus reducing DHT levels.
COULD PROGESTERONE THERAPY IMPROVE MY QUALITY OF SLEEP?
Progesterone treatment plays a significant role in the quality of sleep by increasing the release and maintenance of melatonin.
CAN PROGESTERONE THERAPY INCREASE MY CHANCES OF HAVING A BABY?
Progesterone treatment is used when men have too much estrogen or fertility issues. In the case of infertility, progesterone replacement therapy helps to prevent estrogen buildup and increases testosterone production, leading to increased sperm production.
