Can progesterone help with a prolasped uterus?

by Maisie

I wondered if you had any information about the role progresterone may play in recovery from a prolapsed uterus?

I am 45 and have recently been experiencing symptoms of a prolapsed uterus following my second miscarriage (4 weeks ago). I feel very upset by this as myself and my partner are very much hoping to try for another pregnancy as neither of us currently have any children.

At the risk of being too graphic (feel free to edit this as appropriate) on wiping myself after peeing, I can feel soft tissue at my vaginal entrance, which seems to be from both the front and rear sides of my vaginal cavity. I also feel a very heavy, dragging feeling, almost as if this part of my body could fall out. As you can imagine, on top of the pregnancy loss, this is very distressing. I have felt some sharp pains, but nothing of any length or severity. Generally, the area feels sore, as if I am having a period.

I would very much like to follow as natural a solution to this as possible, so wondered if you could offer any advice to help my situation?

With many thanks, in advance.

Hi Maisie I believe it does help, but of course would not reverse the prolapse. Although the woman writing in this comment here had a hyst, she certainly seems to have been helped. Progesterone is vital for Pregnancy, please read through this page for more info. Please have a vitamin D test done, most of us lack it. It's also vital to the foetus and for a successful pregnancy, see here, here, here, here and here. And please consider taking taurine, this amino acid is also vital for pregnancy, especially for the growing foetus, see here, here and here. For more info on vitamin D and testing, see the Vitamin D Council and GrassrootsHealth websites. If you should consider using progesterone, please use sufficient. I recommend 100-200mg/day, anything less merely exacerbates the Oestrogen Dominance symptoms. I suggest using some of the cream in your vagina, it's very soothing and an excellent analgesic. We do have more info on our page How to use progesterone cream. I would ask you to read our page on Peri-menopause too, as you are now entering that phase. Take care Wray

I have read that Bio-identical Testosterone Cream and Kegel exercises will definitely help with incontinence and prolapsed uterus. This information comes from 2 doctors who agree with all the amazing benefits of Progesterone, so don't stop using it. The Testosterone Cream can be put into the vagina with an applicator.

One of the doctors recommends - Dosages - first month 2% cream or gel, 1/8 tsp applied intra-vaginally and then on the forearm, second month and thereafter 1%, 1/8 tsp applied to forearm on a daily basis. He says the best way to gauge testosterone is by the libido. If healthy, cut dosage to 2 or 3 times per week. I hope this helps.

Hi Carol I can't agree with your doctors, I would never recommend testosterone to a woman. It increases the risk of cysts, cancer, viseral fat and weight gain, see here, here, here, here, here here, here, here, here and here. Plus when we get to menopause, the ovary becomes an androgen producing organ, see here. The adrenals also play a role in increasing testosterone. I'm running out of space so will start a new comment below. Take care Wray

Hi Carol The jury is still out about testosterone increasing libido, it appears progesterone is the hormone which does this, see here. Plus the neurotransmitter dopamine is essential, see here, here,here, here, here and here. Oestrogen decreases dopamine levels, by increasing prolactin. So for a good libido we need low oestrogen levels, high progesterone levels, and high dopamine levels. Take care Wray
