What Does Progesterone Do?

Progesterone is a hormone that stimulates and regulates various functions; in women it plays a role in maintaining pregnancy. In women progesterone is produced in the ovaries, the placenta (when a woman gets pregnant) and the adrenal glands. It prepares her body for conception and pregnancy and regulates her menstrual cycle. Progesterone also plays a role in sexual desire. It is secreted by the empty egg follicle after ovulation and is at its highest during the last phases of the menstrual cycle.
