What are the effects of heavy metals & toxins on progesterone production?

What are the effects of heavy metals (found in our food, water, personal care products, vaccines, and environment) on our hormone levels, specifically progesterone?

I know that they are Xenoestrogens that disrupt the endocrine system and often cause estrogen dominance, but I read recently that they can actually inhibit the production of progesterone. Do you have any data or opinion on that?
