This will be a 3 part series on hormones, with a 2 part series on HRT after that. In this episode, we talk about how we may find ourselves in the hormone jungle (or tundra!) and the role hormones play in various bodily functions. We go over the basics of steroid and nonsteroid hormones. We explain about the importance of ovulation in relation to progesterone and overall health, and explains ways to know if you are ovulating.
