Purpose of Study 

The purpose of this study is to test whether an oral micronized progesterone reduces the score, number and severity of hot flushes and night sweats in perimenopausal women. Oral micronized progesterone is molecularly identical to human progesterone, a steroid hormone. It is sold by prescription for use to prevent endometrial cancer in women taking estrogen in menopause. This research study will test whether progesterone reduces perimenopausal hot flushes and night sweats. It will also test whether progesterone improves sleep disturbances and anxiety.

Recruitment is now complete and the data and statistical analysis is now underway. The results of this study will be shared when available.
