Progesterone injection is utilized to treat irregular menstrual cycles by increasing levels of the progesterone hormone in the body. 

Inadequate progesterone levels can lead to complications with pregnancy or produce side effects similar to menopause. Additionally, progesterone plays a crucial role in maintaining pregnancy in the early stages and helps to prevent miscarriage.

While the primary use of progesterone is to treat irregular menstrual cycles and support pregnancy, it may also be employed for other purposes. Progesterone should not be used to relieve an ongoing asthma attack; instead, a quick-relief inhaler should be used as prescribed.

There's not enough information on its safety, so avoid using it altogether. This applies to oral, vaginal, and any other forms.

Prescription progesterone is safe for most when used correctly under a healthcare provider's supervision. This applies to oral and vaginal forms used for approved reasons.

Pregnant women should avoid non-prescription progesterone. Prescription vaginal progesterone for infertility or preventing preterm labor is likely safe but avoid it otherwise during pregnancy.

Breastfeeding safety is unknown. Avoid using progesterone while breastfeeding until more information is available.

Certain health conditions require avoiding non-prescription progesterone:

  • Arterial disease
  • Breast cancer or a history of it
  • Depression
  • Liver disease
  • Porphyria
  • Undiagnosed vaginal bleeding
