I just received the Natpro. I wanted to know if I am already taking bioidentical 1.5 estrogen and 50mg progesterone. My nipples have gotten sore... should I take the extra Natpro? When I was doing the 1.5 estrogen & 30mg progesterone my nipples didn't get sore.

Could the progesterone be making it? How should I use the Natpro? I am thinking do the 1.5/50 once a day and then the Natpro for the second part of the day and how much? Help.

NATPRO/sore nipples
by: Maree

Hello, If I were you I would get your hormone levels checked first to give you an idea of what is going on. I have been using NATPRO for years now and no difficulties, but I do check levels. A copy of Dr John Lees book on PROGESTERONE and the menopause is also a good idea. Your nipples should not be sore using NATPRO, but do use differnt sites to apply the cream, not always in the same area. Hope this helps

Hi Linda Sore nipples are an indication oestrogen has risen. This occurs when using progesterone, as it stimulates oestrogen, for more info please see Oestrogen Dominance. Using oestrogen too is negating the affects of progesterone. Oestrogen is a mitogen causing cells to divide and multiply, it also causes water retention, and it's a known initiator of inflammation. All of which contribute to sore nipples. The 30mg progesterone you are using would be overwhelmed by the oestrogen you are using, so would not have any affect. As soon as you increase the progesterone amount as you have, this will be enough to stimulate the oestrogen effect. I don't believe any woman needs extra oestrogen, even if it's bio-oestrogen it's still oestrogen. We get far too much as it is in our food, water, air and the skin care we use. Please see the website Our Stolen Future. And for more info on oestrogen please see our page on HRT. I recommend between 100-200mg/day progesterone, please consider using within this range. Rubbing it directly on sore areas is very helpful too. For more info please see How to use progesterone cream. Take care Wray

NATPRO/sore nipples

Hi Maree Your idea to get the levels checked is a good one. If the ratio of the two hormones is out of balance is does cause havoc. I've found it needs to be 600:1 progesterone to oestrogen before a woman feels well. This requires at least 100mg/day progesterone, depending on the existing oestrogen level. If this is high then more progesterone is required to suppress the oestrogen. Once this is lowered, the amount of progesterone can be lowered till the optimum is found. Not forgetting stress drops progesterone levels, so more will be required over any stressful time. Take care Wray
