Progesterone has a role in increasing blood flow to the uterus during pregnancy. As such, these researchers studied the effect of progesterone treatment to resolve imminent necrosis of a myoma in two cases. Both resolved within several days following oral and vaginal doses of progesterone (300-600 mg/day). Both women went on to deliver healthy, full-term infants.
