Progesterone is an important hormone in women. It works together with estrogen to promote endometrial hyperplasia and exfoliation, form menstruation, promote the development of breast tissue, promote the excretion of water and sodium in the body, prevent and alleviate lower limb edema, change the properties of cervical mucus, and prevent sperm from passing through the female cervix.
For women after pregnancy, the secretory phase of the endometrium is maintained, which is conducive to the development of embryonic tissue. Clinically, it is mainly used to coordinate with estrogen to regulate the menstrual cycle, urge menstruation when menstruation is delayed, perform medical curettage when functional uterine bleeding occurs, and perform fetal protection when threatened abortion symptoms occur.
