Cortisol being a factor in Hormone Imbalance
Posted: Sat Feb 23, 2019 10:40 am
When one has high levels of cortisol, progesterone can be stolen to make more cortisol to keep up with the cortisol demand so to speak. When you have a stressful situation your body "steals" progesterone in your body to produce the hormone Cortisol. The consequence is a hormone imbalance with low progesterone.
