The Forgotten Hormone in Men



Progesterone is often considered a female hormone, however, it is necessary in men for several reasons. Progesterone is produced by the adrenal glands and testes in men. Progesterone is actually necessary for the production of testosterone and helps to counteract the overproduction of estrogen.

High Progesterone Hormone Levels

Though less common, high progesterone levels in men can lead to hormonal imbalances. Progesterone in men is involved in the creation of other hormones, including testosterone and cortisol. It also impact the body's ability to produce testosterone effectively.
