A question that women have for me all the time is: “Barbara, am I too old for progesterone?”
To put it simply: NO!
Despite surviving the hump of menopause and its more disruptive symptoms, it is important to note that progesterone works in ways that you may not always be aware of. Once you reach your 50s, or if you undergo a hysterectomy, your progesterone and estrogen levels start to drop. Even if you “get over” the hot flashes and sweats, your levels are still low!
