Does progesterone help libido?

It depends. If you're lacking progesterone, it might help. If you're not lacking, than it won't. I know that sounds like double talk, but hormones are a delicate balance. When one of them is off, it can cause symptoms. Lack of libido can come from an estrogen, progesterone or testosterone imbalance. All the hormones work in harmony with each other.

Here's a good article about libido issues: Sexual Desire/Sexual Response

Does progesterone help libido?

Sometimes progesterone can actually kill libido As (((Kim))) said, balance is the key. Testosterone is the hormone most associated with libido; however, sometimes progesterone can help IF the body contains the enzymes necessary to make the conversion from progesterone to testosterone. Most of us without ovaries don't do a particularly good job of that; for us, it's more "efficient" to just supplement with testosterone, assuming there is a deficiency.

Of course, testosterone is available by prescription only and should only be used under a DR's supervision, after proper testing to determine that there is indeed a deficiency and that the woman doesn't have one of the risk factors for testosterone use (cholesterol problems and liver function issues are two of them).

I hope this helps.
