In brief: Important role

Progesterone plays a very important role during your periods.
It stabilizes the endometrium and plays a role in decreasing the risk of endometrial cancer. Progesterone is produced with ovulation so anovulatory cycles increases your risk of endometrial cancer. Also a very important hormone in maintaining pregnancy as well.
