Am I using the right progesterone cream?

by Elizabeth
(London)

I have been using natural progesterone cream for years but just lately I have been having severe night sweats early mornings, I had 6 -7 of them today which disturbed my sleep and some during the day!

I have been using 'Her Balance' cream for the last few years and I am wondering if it isn't giving the right dosage?

I have ordered NatPro and hopefully will see the difference!

Am I using the right progesterone cream?
by: Wray

Hi Elizabeth I've tried looking for Her Balance cream on the web but can't find the manufacturer. The sites I did find didn't tell me the ingredients or the quantity of progesterone in the cream. So I don't have any idea of how much they recommend. If it's the usual 20-40mg/day this would account for the night sweats. If you use the amount I suggest which is 100-200mg/day, this sudden increase will undoubtedly cause Oestrogen Dominance. And dependant on how much oestrogen you have, the more severe the symptoms. These can pass quickly if enough is used! Please don't be discouraged by it as so many are. It's essential to make progesterone the dominant hormone. In fact from Saliva Tests we run, we've round the ratio of progesterone to oestrogen should be 600:1 and over to feel well. If you have night sweats I'm guessing you must be in Peri-menopause. Please look through this page as it gives info on what can occur and how much progesterone to use, and when to use it too. Take care Wray
