Progesterone has so many roles. It causes hydration of proper water in the skin. It protects the cell membranes so the cell membranes can keep sodium out and allow potassium and magnesium to come into the cell. It maintains the intercellular concentration of the good minerals and keeps out the sodium, otherwise if the sodium comes in then the water comes in and you get swelling. (As mentioned previously. When using progesterone with ERT, the estrogen should immediately be cut in half to prevent estrogen dominance effects.)
