What is Progesterone?

In the case of progesterone, only a single hormone is found. Thus, “progesterone” is both the name of the class and of the single member of the class. Later, when plant extractions were found to have progestational activity and even later when synthetic versions with progestational activity were created, various authors described them as “progestins” or “progestagens”. Unfortunately, in the pharmaceutical promotion that followed, the word “progesterone” was also used to describe these other compounds despite their many side effects (side effects NOT found in progesterone). These synthetic progestins lack many of the other abilities of natural progesterone. This confusion still exists in the minds of many physicians and writers.
