Menopause - Hair on Face

Hi Letitia

It really doesn't matter if one is past Menopause or not, we ALL suffer from Estrogen Dominance, more so if one has been on birth control or HRT. Excess estrogen can cause facial hair, but so does high testosterone levels, have you been tested?

Each month women make more androgens than estrogen, luckily most of it is converted to estrogen by the enzyme aromatase. Progesterone does suppress excess testosterone. It is also a very calming hormone, whereas estrogen is an excitatory hormone.

Do you know what your Vitamin D3 level is? A deficiency reduces the benefits of progesterone and is vital for every functioning cell in our bodies.

Hello Letitia!
That would be testosterone and/or estrogen. Even though you are finished with menopause your body still produces both hormones and without progesterone being made now, those two hormones have nothing to counterbalance their effects. So, they are building up in your body. Testosterone will convert to estrogen in our bodies. I know when estrogen and testosterone are raging in me when I start getting the hairs on my face....long ones, grey ones, some soft and some like the point of a needle. Don't shave or you will have a 3 o'clock shadow forever. I use No-Tweeze wax every other week and then my good old tweezer every day for my chin. Yes, progesterone will help....how much I do not know. Type in your complaint on Wray's first page in the search bar. I am certain lots of things will come up along with the dosage of progesterone Wray recommends you should take to help slow the growth down. It is definitely an estrogen dominance symptom. Best of luck to you! God Bless! RJ

Hello Letitia!
There is no way of saying how much you would need to combat the facial hair. Since estrogen is high you may need upwards of 500mg a day. Everyone is different. And putting it on your face certainly will not hurt...will it help stop the growth, none of us can say. But the hair is a result of what is circulating within your body. You have to balance out the estrogen and that will not be a quick fix. It took me almost four years to find some balance. Be sure to us a natural cream because chemicals will just add to the high estrogen you are already suffering from. God Bless! RJ

Hi Letitia

RJ is correct. As we are all different, we all require different things, this would apply to Natpro Progesterone Cream too. What suites one, may not another. Facial hair is extremely hard to clear, it takes time, but it does clear.

Natpro can be used on all parts of the body, even hair follicles absorb it well. It is extremely beneficial when inserted in the vagina at night before getting into bed. It helps with dryness and inflammation. I stress though, please make sure that the cream used does not contain any ingredients that may cause irritation, always check the ingredients of any product not just a progesterone cream.
