Progesterone and Sleep Issues

We are often asked at the US Women’s Medical Center about progesterone and sleep issues, specifically its ability to alleviate these issues. Some common sleeping problems as a result of menopause are difficulty falling asleep, difficulty staying awake, waking up too early, poor quality of sleep, fatigue, and poor overall functioning

Progesterone is a hormone released by the corpus luteum in your ovary. Progesterone acts on brain circuits to induce sleep. When going through menopause, not only will your estrogen decrease, but your progesterone levels will decrease as well. You may be wondering if there is a solution to this problem, and lucky for you, there is!

The good news is that perimenopause, menopause, and post-menopause sleep issues are some of the easiest issues to solve using hormone replacement therapy. Progesterone replacement is a great resource for women going through menopause that are looking to reclaim a good night’s sleep.
