How Does It Work ?
Progesterone works by binding itself to the progesterone and oestrogen receptors. Its primary target cells are the female reproductive tract, the hypothalamus, the mammary gland and the pituitary gland. After the binding to the receptor, progesterone starts slowing the frequency of release of gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH) from the hypothalamus and blunt the surge of preovulatory luteinizing hormone (LH).
Progesterone is essential for the development of decidual tissue and is important in the increase of endometrial receptivity which is essential for implantation of an embryo. When an embryo is implanted, progesterone works to maintain the pregnancy. Progesterone has a great role also in the growth of mammary alveolar tissue. It also helps in relaxing uterine smooth muscles. The proper information about how long does it last is printed on the capsule box or the capsule strip.
