Progesterone (Progesterone)

Progesterone is a steroid hormone involved in the female menstrual cycle, pregnancy, and embryogenesis. In women, progesterone levels are relatively low during the preovulatory phase of the menstrual cycle, rise after ovulation, and are elevated during the luteal phase. Adult males have levels similar to those in women during the follicular phase of the menstrual cycle. Willard Myron Allen who co-discovered progesterone with his anatomy professor George Washington Corner at the University of Rochester Medical School in 1933, gave it the name PROGESTERONE derived from PROGEstational STERoidal ketONE. Like other steroids, progesterone consists of four interconnected cyclic hydrocarbons and is hydrophobic.
