Many menstrual problems are traced to deficient progesterone production during the second half of the menstrual cycle, called the luteal phase. Insufficient progesterone during this phase results in estrogen dominance, leading to a shortening of the luteal phase, (called luteal phase defect). A shortened luteal phase with too much estrogen and not enough progesterone can cause heavy periods, scanty periods, too frequent periods or no periods. Prolactin, another pituitary hormone, may also be elevated during this time, causing breast tenderness and pain, classic symptoms of PMS.
Take one to three per day preferably before breakfast or as directed by your health practitioner.
