Women’s health research and education covers a wide variety of health concerns and often estrogen is the focus in understanding and treating these conditions. Progesterone, however, plays an essential and often underrepresented role in the complex system of women’s reproductive health. In this article, we learn about progesterone from Dr. Prior, an international expert in the endocrinology of women’s reproduction whose lifelong research has helped us better understand the role of progesterone for women and the exciting ways it can help women in clinical practice.
