The Perimenopause Conversation - Part 3 of 4: A deep dive into progesterone

It's the waxing and waning of oestrogen, combined with a decline in progesterone, that can contribute to symptoms of perimenopause as we transition towards menopause.

  • Water retention

  • Painful breasts

  • Changes in mood (especially increased anxiety)

  • Low blood sugar

  • Headaches and migraines

  • Irregular cycles

  • Weight gain

...can all be signs that progesterone is low.

Changing hormones are part and parcel of this transition in life but there are things you can do to support your body for a smoother transition. In this video we cover the things biggest bang for you buck and we also touch on HRT, specifically micronised progesterone (Utrogestan) and how this could be beneficial if you are particularly challenged.

If you have any questions feel free to drop me an email to and if you'd like to speak with me about working with me 1-2-1 you can book a free exploratory call with me here.

With love,

Francesca xx
