What exactly is progesterone?
Progesterone is a member of a class of steroid hormones known as ‘progestogens’ (which are hormones that have a similar action to the natural hormone progesterone). Progestins are synthetic hormones that operate similarly to progesterone. During the second half of the menstrual cycle, the corpus luteum in the ovary secretes the majority of progesterone. It is essential for the menstrual cycle and the maintenance of the early stages of pregnancy.
During the menstrual cycle, when an egg is released from the ovary during ovulation (around day 14), the remnants of the ovarian follicle that encased the developing egg are known as the ‘corpus luteum,’ which literally translates as ‘yellow body’ owing to its appearance. This causes progesterone and, to a lesser extent, oestradiol to be released. If the released egg is fertilised, progesterone prepares the body for pregnancy. If the egg is not fertilised, the corpus luteum degrades, progesterone production decreases, and a new menstrual cycle begins.
