‘Progesterone can also have beneficial effects on the lungs. It increases pulmonary gas-exchange and reduces alveolar CO2 pressure. Asthma patients treated with progesterone report fewer asthma attacks.

In my practice I have found that asthma patients treated with progesterone report fewer attacks, and overall patients report more undisturbed sleep and a significant reduction in snoring. Could sleep apnea be related to progesterone deficiency?
