Can it help cervical erosion?

I'm 29 and have been trying to concieve baby number 2 since January 2009, coming off the contraceptive pill to do so. I successfully conceived in July 2009 only to lose the baby at 8 weeks.

We waited until after my next cycle, six weeks, until we started trying again and up until December my cycle lasted 26-29 days.

Then in January 2010 things started to go crazy. I didn't have a period for 5 months then when they returned they were erratic. Bleeding for up to two weeks at a time with no regularity at all. The longest time between cycles was 110 days!!!

Then this week I have been diagnosed with having cervical erosion as I'm bleeding after intercourse, which goes on for 24-72 hours (The bleeding not the intercourse!!??). I'm told I got this because I was on the pill and have had a baby and it has made my hormones unbalanced.

I've never been offered a hormone test but am now being referred to the gynacologist to have the cells outside my cervix lasered off!

I've been having reflexology for 6 months to try and get everything working normally again, with some success such as stress reduction, and wondered if progestrone therapy along side would help?

Sorry for going on so long!!

Can it help cervical erosion?

Hi Em I love your humour, I did take it you meant the bleeding and not the intercourse! I would agree about the Contraceptive unbalancing your hormones. And the cervical erosion, well I haven't heard that progesterone could help, but as it's an anti-inflammatory, I see no reason why it shouldn't. It will also help with the reduction of stress levels too, as it's an excellent anxiolytic. The reason for this it activates the GABA receptor sites, GABA is one of our most calming neurotransmitters. Another calming amino acid/neurotransmitter is taurine, this also happens to be vital for a growing foetus, see here, here and here. Please have a vitamin D test, levels are low in most of us, especially so in the UK with it's lack of sun. For more info see the Vitamin D council and GrassrootsHealth websites. Vitamin D also happens to be critically important for foetal growth, see here, here, here and here. If you should consider progesterone, please start it well before deciding on another child. Oestrogen Dominance can occur, and it's not what you need while pregnant. For more info see our page on How to use progesterone. And as you're wanting another child, please see our page on Pregnancy. Take care Wray
