Most premenstrual syndrome (PMS) is related to a relative deficiency of progesterone compared to estrogen during that part of the menstrual cycle. It is extremely important to know the difference between natural progesterone and progestin (Provera). While progestin will protect the uterine lining from the effects of estrogen, it has been shown to be otherwise quite toxic to women, in addition to lacking the health benefits of bio-identical progesterone.
