Usually : If you do not ovulate or if you make a lot of estrogen, Progesterone can help calm your body from the overstimulation of the estrogen. However, during a normal menstrual cycle the Progesterone levels can vary greatly so you will have to find the right dose and the right timing of the progesterone. Also, get a Progesterone that does not have the preservatives called parabens which may cause cancer.
