No: To eat foods containing chemicals known to be similar (in effect) to the body's hormones is usually a bad idea. The dosing would vary each day because the foods never contain the same amount of chemical from meal to meal, people don't eat the same meals each day, foods from different farms have different levels of chemicals, etc... The only way to get exact amounts is by approved, purified drugs.

Food sources such as yams, are very weak sources of progesterone, and likely not of any benefit.

None: Nothing that will make any difference. Why do you feel you need progesterone?
