Hi, Wray,

I'm in my early 70's and have had trouble sleeping for a few years. I keep waking up and then not able to go back to sleep. I started progesterone cream (30 ml twice a day)about a month ago and it has worked like a charm for my sleep problems. I'm finally able to sleep well again.

But...in one month, I have gained about 8 pounds! I know you said that this would happen initially, but how long??? I was trying to control my weight before the progesterone and now I'm back where I started and I'm terrified that I'll gain even more weight. How long do you think it will take for this to "even out"?
