Is there a discount price in purchasing Natpro in larger quantities of 20 tubes at a time?

I have been reading all the information on your Progesterone Therapy site, all day long, for several days. There is so much information. It is wonderful. I have asked some questions about my specific problems. I have received some responses back to some of my questions already. I was impressed at how fast I got some responses back.

I have been given the recommendation(as per Wray)to start using 400mg/day of the Natpro cream. I have read on this site that it can take about 3 months to get problems/symptoms under control. I have also read that in many/most cases more than the initial recommended dosage amounts may be needed to get our symptoms under control within this 3 month period. Sometimes it may even take more than 3 months before someone can start the process of lowering the dosage. The recommendation is to lower it by small amounts and wait for several days before trying to lower it again. This all makes sense once you read everything and understand why. I love that you always explain "why" you are suggesting we try your advice.

I know you can purchase a single tube at a time or you offer the option of ordering a 3 tube pack for less cost per tube. I didn't see an option for more bulk quantities beyond the 3 pack. People that are not on a lower dosage maintenance level and are just now starting out on Progesterone therapy would need to initially order substantially more than a three pack. There seems to be a trial and error dosage beginning phase to progesterone therapy. It seems that many times quite a bit more mg's is needed in the beginning. Nobody would want to run out and possibly be without the cream for a few days waiting for a new order to arrive. This could cause the symptoms to return or for you to go into the dreaded oestrogen dominance. It would only be once you had gotten to the maintenance dosage faze that you would know how much you needed on a daily basis to have the correct amount to order and keep on hand at all times.

Initially using 400mg/day or possibly more, a single tube would last about 4 to 5 days depending on if you needed a little more mg's. That comes out to be between 6 to 8 tubes per month. Estimating that you might need 3 months to alleviate your low progesterone symptoms/problems you would then need to order a total of 18 to 23 tubes to begin with before you would get started with the reducing dosage process. The total cost of ordering that amount of initial 18 to 23 tubes would be (rounded out) in the neighborhood of $500 to $625 to get started on Progesterone therapy. I would suspect that most people would not want to be caught without enough cream on hand in the beginning process. Being without cream for a day in the beginning process would most likely cause problems/set-backs.

I know people are desperate for help in alleviating severe, debilitating problems that are effecting their daily life. They are willing to pay anything to fix their health problems. I am one of those people. But "willing to" and "able to" are two different things. I read about and understand the cost of making Natpro. But since you do offer a discount on purchasing a 3 pack over a single tube, I do see that it can be offered at a lower rate per tube in a quantity form. My questions are.....Do you offer a further discount, per tube price, if ordered at 20 to 25 tubes at a time? Is there a 20 or 25 tube pack available and, if so, what is the cost and how do I order it in this larger package since I can not seem to find a "box" to click for large quantity packs in the ordering section of this forum?

Please answer soon as I am anxious to order and get started on progesterone therapy.

You can purchase a 20 pack for $345. This is how I have started buying it. This way I have a few on hand to give to anyone that might want to try it before purchasing. It works out to about $17 per tube. The multiple tube option displays on the actual shopping cart page. Best of luck to you.

Thanks for answering my question Casey. I found the answer to my own question by accident yesterday while trying to locate the Natpro company in Michigan to ask about purchasing larger volume discounts.

I actually found Natpro for even less than $17.29 per tube. It can be purchased for a 35% discount if purchased in larger quantities. I was able to order 21 tubes at $16.05 per tube.

Here is the link if anyone is interested in purchasing larger quantities at one time.

I have to give a big thank you to the Natpro manufacture and to progesterone therapy web site for offering such a nice large discount to those who need large dosed of this wonderful product.

Hi Susie M I have answered this query on your other pages. I see Casey has also advised you on this too. It is on the order page, right below where you put in the quantity you want. It says...... "Special offers: 3 tubes $69.00, 20 tubes $345.00 For re-sellers: 100 tubes $1,265.00" So try putting in 20, plus postage, it will then ask you to recalculate. The link is here. Take care Wray

Hi Casey Thanks for advising Susie. I'm delighted you've chosen this option, it does make it far more cost affective, even if the initial outlay is bigger. I know some women share with others too, and one who has her whole family, including husband, on it! Take care Wray

Hi Susie M We do give a once off larger discount for anyone doing the questionnaire. But it is only a once off. Thereafter the 30% discount is the standard for any further purchases of 20 tubes and over. If you wished to get 100 tubes, you'd get an almost 50% discount. But it does require a huge outlay, unless you can get others to share with you. Many thanks for the kind words too! Take care Wray

Bigger tubes?
by: Tracey

I'd love to see bigger sizes offered. Whether it is 20 or 100 tubes, its a lot of waste and could be more user friendly. Is it possible to make the tubes larger than 2 ounces so we have less tubes to buy? The option would be fantastic.
Thanks for listening.

Bigger tubes?
by: Wray

Hi Tracey We love feedback from customers, so thanks for your suggestion. We have thought about it often, but can never make up our minds how big?! The 60g does fit in a purse or handbag, so too would a 100g, although bulkier. Another idea was a large pump pot that could stand on a bathroom counter, that would be ideal if the whole family was using it! The only problem I can see is demand, how many would want a larger size. So I think we should send out a survey to find out. For instance we have many men using it, and they use far smaller amounts than we do, so the 60g is all they need for a few months. We shall see! Take care Wray

offering Natpro in larger containers
by: Susie M

I think asking for a survey is a great idea. I will be the next one to say I would like The Natpro manufacturers to offer more options of container sizes.

Someone could buy a few of the smaller tubes for on the go, like in your purse or car. But what I think would really be great is to have the large pump size available for at-home or the office desk. This large pump option is great for those who have to use larger doses for a specific problem as well as those who will be using Natpro for life.

For those who use smaller doses, this larger pump option will save on storage of having several smaller tubes on hand or will insure that they don't run out of Natpro so quickly and have to reorder more often and wait for the product to arrive. A larger pump would make it so much more convenient for at-home use for the individual as well as multiple users.

Think of all the women who buy moisturizer/hand cream in the large pump size for their home use. It seem obvious by the sales of pump moisturizers that, at least women, would like to have the option of a large pump size in something they use alot of throughout the day.

It could also be money saving to offer a large quantity in a pump container because the packaging would be one container as apposed to all the single small tubes required to make an equal amount to the pump size.

So I say, please, please offer a larger pump size along with the smaller tubes. My first order was 21 tubes. My second will most likely be 100 tubes. I will be using Natpro for life. In the beginning I will be using large quantities. Maybe a tube every 3 to 5 days. Eventually at some point after menopause I will be using much smaller doses but I will be using it for the rest of my life. I would sill want to purchase a large pump even using in in smaller doses. It was stated that (I believe, if I remember correctly?) it lasts for 18 months.

offering Natpro in larger containers
by: Wray

Hi Susie I love your enthusiasm! I don't want to dampen your spirit, but you haven't tried the progesterone for any length of time. It can initially be a very bumpy ride, which for many women is so off-putting they stop using it. I hope this doesn't happen to you, or the possible adverse symptoms discourage you either, but please just be aware of them. Cost is always a factor when considering changing or adding new packaging. The packaging itself is a minor fraction of the cost of the cream. A large container would also mean a very big initial outlay for the customer, which some can't afford. So we might be left with large numbers of the bigger containers. We used to supply the Natpro in a pack of three tubes, no smaller could be purchased. But we received so many queries from customers asking us to sell just one tube as they couldn't afford 3, we changed our policy. My chief concern about the one tube option was that progesterone needs to be used for longer than one tube. So people only getting one, then getting typical oestrogen dominance affects, would be discouraged from using it for longer. A naturopath who prescribes the Natpro will only allow her patients to buy three tubes from her, never one. Yes the expiry date is set at 18 months, although a few weeks over that date would not affect the efficacy of the cream. It can be kept in the freezer, although the water has a tendency to separate. In which case once thawed the tube should be massaged thoroughly before opening. Take care Wray
