Can anyone tell me the difference between progesterone and micronized progesterone
Hello, What is the difference between progesterone and micronized progesterone. Doctor has asked for Progestron tablets but someone suggested me a mocrinized progesterone.
Can anyone tell me the difference between progesterone and micronized progesterone? What is the difference between the two? Which one is better and what are its benefits? Thanks
@illie Hello, Progesterone is a female hormone important for the regulation of ovulation and menstruation. Micronized progesterone is a bioidentical hormone with a molecular structure identical to that of endogenous progesterone produced by the ovary. Synthetic progestins have a different chemical structure from progesterone. Micronized progesterone is better as it has been associated with a lower cardiovascular risk and has a neutral effect on blood pressure compared with synthetic progestogens, which have androgenic activities.
