You can raise your progesterone levels naturally by using compounding products that contain the essence of soybeans or yams from Diascorea uilosa variety.
Progesterone is bioidentical when it is extracted from these specific sources, and performs a similar role as the natural progesterone would in a woman’s body. Table yams that are traditionally available in the market will not offer the same kind of benefits.

Creams are the most common form of delivery system for natural progesterone. A cream gets well absorbed in the body, and the maximum ingredients can access the bloodstream. You can apply a dime-sized quantity of cream on the inside of your arms, wrists, thighs, or stomach twice a day (individual directions can vary).
According to some manufacturers, creams should be used by premenopausal women for two weeks before the start of their periods for best outcomes. Menopausal women are recommended to use them for three weeks, and then stop for one week, and then repeat the use.
Natural progesterone is also available in pill form. But you should be aware that progesterone gets broken down quick in the liver, so somewhat lower quantity may be available in the bloodstream. You may have to take a relatively higher dosage of oral progesterone as compared to a progesterone cream.
Progesterone suppositories are also an option, which will have to be inserted vaginally. It is believed that this application can promote healthy tissue in the uterus and enhance pregnancy success.
Progesterone from Natural Foods
Foods may not directly contain progesterone, but some foods could help trigger the natural progesterone production in your body. These include:
- Brussels sprouts
- Whole grains
Some of the foods may also contribute to reduction in the estrogen levels in your body, which could help raise the ratio of progesterone to estrogen. These may include:
You can try to improve your natural progesterone levels by combining compounding medications along with an extra intake of these foods in your diet.
Lifestyle Improvements to Boost Natural Progesterone Levels
Maintain a healthy body weight
Your body may produce more estrogen as a woman if you are overweight. This will lead to an imbalance with progesterone. Although a moderate body weight will not necessarily increase your progesterone levels, it will help improve your overall hormonal balance.
Reduce your mental stress levels
Mental tension and stress triggers the generation of stress hormones. This may cause your kidneys to convert progesterone into cortisol. To reduce your stress levels, consider meditating, listening to music, reading or writing, or participate in enjoyable and relaxing activities with close family members and friends.
