Hair Loss: Progesterone
Progesterone as a hair loss treatment for men and women with hair loss, baldness or thinning hair as prescribed by hair loss hair restoration doctors.
Background: Progesterone is a C-21 steroid
hormone. It is one of the most important hormones manufactured by the
female body. It is responsible for the health of virtually every cell
and organ of the body.
Progesterone can be used as an anti-estrogen agent to
correct abnormalities of the menstrual cycle. Progesterone is also used
in conjunction with estrogen as a contraceptive. Progesterone is
synonymous to corpus luteum hormone.
According to Dr. Klein, ""Progesterone is the chief inhibitor of an enzyme called 5-alpha reductase. Progesterone inhibits the body from converting testosterone to di-hydrotestosterone (DHT) by binding to 5 alpha reductase; 5-AR is the enzyme that converts human serum to testosterone, then into DHT, which is the compound thought to be responsible for damaging hair follicles and an important factor in hair loss."
