Dosage NatPro

by Suzanne
(Montana)

Hi, I've been using NatPro on and off for the last year or so. Not using it consistently is a big reminder of how much it helps me when I am using it. I'm going to start using this on a regular bases.
My first question is about the dose. I know there's 33 mg in a gram, but how much is a gram? 1/2 teaspoon? 1/4 teaspoon?

My second question. I have pretty severe deficiency symtoms. So I'm going to work my way up to 400 mg during the luteal phase and see how that goes. I'm thinking I need to stay a "reduced" amount during the follicular phase because symptoms persist, but not sure what would be a good dose to still have a period and ovulation.

I'm 46 and have been dealing with premenopausal for years. Still have cycles.
Thank you,
Suzanne

Dosage NatPro
by: Wray

Hi Suzanne I'm delighted the Natpro has helped you. 1 gram of water is 1 millilitre. Emulsions are slightly lighter but the difference is so close I refer to 1g as 1ml. There are 5ml in a metric teaspoon. Unfortunately both the American and English teaspoons are both slightly smaller. For instance there are 1 1⁄64 US tsp to 5ml. If you don't have a metric measuring spoon and want one, this site here stocks them. Alternatively use the American spoon, the difference is so slight it won't make any difference. Just remember to divide the 1 teaspoon cream into 5 and you'll get ±1ml or 33.3mg progesterone. If you have symptoms during the follicular phase, then I suggest you use the progesterone daily, and do not stop or reduce. Having a period and ovulating are not essential, unless of course you are wanting to fall pregnant! In fact there is strong evidence we bleed far too frequently, see here. These are two others worth reading here and here. I found when I first started progesterone, (I was 47) and stopped the progesterone for the 'break' all my symptoms came back, so I used it daily, through any bleeding and didn't look back. We do have a page on Peri-menopause in case you haven't seen it. Take care Wray

Thanks

Thanks Wray for the info. So I'm calculating that 1/4 teaspoon is about 41 mg.

I'm so close to running out of NatPro. Have been trying to reorder for days now. Any chance it's going to be available soon?

Thanks again, suzanne

Hi Suzanne Yes 1/4tsp is 41mg progesterone. I do know stock came in, but often too many people are wanting to order so it goes out again very quickly. In this case please contact Jules in NY as she carries stock. Her email is julesvs19@gmail.com
Take care Wray

NatPro vaginally
by: Suzanne

Hi I asked this question on a different thread but then I saw where Wray likes to keep questions within the same post. Sorry for double posting.

Wray, do you feel NatPro works as well, or maybe better, vaginally? I like using progesterone vaginally so I'm not rubbing so much on my skin. I worry about over saturating the receptors, but also worry about passing the Progesterone to my family by touch.
Thanks!

NatPro vaginally
by: Wray

Hi Suzanne Yes it does make my life easier, otherwise I'm having to guess what went on before, or try and find the page which I haven't the time for. It works as well vaginally, as on the skin. I use it there nightly and have for years, it prevents dryness and inflammation. It also helps prevent Candida. I've yet to find a study where they looked at receptor sites to find if they can become saturated! Until such time, I'll believe the reverse, that the body knows how to metabolise progesterone, and any other hormone naturally. I used a tube a day over a 2 month period last year due to stress, and now I'm down to 1/4 tube a day, it covers my body, twice a day. I haven't found any lessening of the effect. As for passing it on to your family, it's safe for all of them, male and female, even new born babies are given it for respiratory distress syndrome. I often think that much of our asthma is caused by a lack of progesterone in the mother while her child was a foetus, plus a lack of vitamin D, both are essential for respiration. Take care Wray
