Natpro findings, prostatitis and libido


(UK)

Hello Wray,
You asked me to report back to you once I had tried Natpro for a good length of time. I am one of your relatively rare male customers, aged 63, and was initially attracted to Natpro for two potential benefits: an improvement to my (benign) prostatitis, and an improvement to my libido. I am instinctively sceptical, and am not likely to be subject to the placebo effect - so I like to think!

Six months on I can report a definite and very welcome outcome in both respects.

Whereas I used to have the usual difficulties associated with an enlarged prostate: poor flow and excessive frequency of urination, with consequently disturbed nights, I now routinely sleep soundly through six or seven hours, and the rate of flow, while not as vigorous as many years ago, is good and continuous.

As for the libido... let me simply say that I am delighted with the results in my sexual life.

An entirely unexpected effect, and also welcome, was that very quickly (I mean within days of starting the applications) there was a marked effect on my sleep, which had been light and broken, but became heavier and more continuous and therefore more satisfactory, even though in those early days I was still having to get up once or twice to urinate.

So, many thanks indeed. You have an ongoing customer!

I am glad to see your response and glad you had good results! I too have had good response with progesterone as far as urinary improvement and libido. I also have has andipose fat building slightly around hips and thighs etc., have you had any of that? Also what is the daily dose you are taking, is it 8-12mg or more like 100 mg. a day.

is this a natural cure?
by: Juan

My brother has prostatitis and is considering this.

But is it a natural cure?

Seems like to be medication to me and my bro he only wants herbs and natural stuff to cure his prostate problem you know?

He is following advice like natural stuff: http://www.improve-my-libido.com/erectile-dysfunction.html

But I can tell him to take this treatment as it sounds good. Can you help?

Progesterone for men
by: Wray

Hi there The standard recommended amount is about 10mg/day, but I believe this is far too low to have any effect if there's a problem. Fine if there's none! So I recommend up to 100mg/day, or more if serious. Please see this comment from another user here. You might like to see these papers too, here, here, and here, here, here and here. Take care Wray

is this a natural cure?
by: Wray

Hi Juan Progesterone is natural, whereas a progestin is not, and has an adverse effect, see here. Progesterone is used successfully in many cases, notably for traumatic brain injury, where it's given via IV transfusion, see here, here, here I've looked on the site you gave me, but as with most people they believe testosterone is the hormone behind libido and erectile dysfunction is caused by a lack of it. I've found reason to believe this is not the case. There's strong evidence that progesterone plays a big role, see here, here, and here, here, here and here. But your brother has BPH, so needs an anti-inflammatory to reverse it. As you'll notice in the TBI papers, progesterone is a potent anti-inflammatory. Please ask him to have a vitamin D test done too, this is another potent anti-inflammatory, and is low in most of us. It's essential to prevent cancer, see here, here, here, here, here and here. For more info see the Vitamin D council and GrassrootsHealth websites. Take care Wray

I have been using natpro for about 3 weeks now. I am 56 years old and seem to have many of the problems associated with progesterone deficiency. I am currently using 1/8 tsp twice a day. I am in fairly good shape and currently not taking any medications, but am a bit sluggish, with low libido. I haven't noticed much of a change yet, though I know it should take time. I would like to stay at this dosage for awhile until I see some change. What are your thoughts on this?

Hi Tom An 1/8tsp twice a day will be giving you about 40mg/day progesterone. I have no idea if this will help you, unfortunately it is trial and error. As you saw from the first comment, he tried it for 6 months before reporting back to me. I have found it takes between 3-6 months to have a full effect, dependant on symptoms of course. If yours weren't severe, I would hope a change occurs within 3 months. But please play around with the amount, it is very safe. I've given the papers on TBI to Juan, the amount they used was 3 times that found in the third trimester of pregnancy, which is over 400mg/day. So they were using in excess of 1200mg/day for the men. Admittedly they needed it, but I'm giving this as an illustration of it's safety. Low libido is often caused by a lack of dopamine, see here,here, here, here and here. The precursor amino acid is tyrosine, please consider taking it. Start low at 500mg/day and increase gradually, too much and symptoms return. Take care Wray

1/8 tsp
by: Gab

I am reading all the entries, and must admit it is a bit confusing, if we are talking about (natpro) Cream how or why is it measured by a Tsp or Tbl? I have ordered the product and it looks looks the more I read the more confusion will occur, I only hope that the packet will have some clear instruction on how much and how to measure the does.

Hello Wray, its been about 6 months now since I started using Natpro. I started with 1/8 tsp for the first 3 months and than stepped up to 1/4 tsp. I did this once in the morning and once at night. I haven't seen any of the changes I read about, except I might be sleeping a little sounder. Should I ramp up the dosage or hang in there and wait to see if I see some results down the line? By the way I went to just using the full 1/2 tsp just before bed, so that may have been a factor on my sleeping.

1/8 tsp
by: Wray

Hi Gab I do apologise about not answering, I don't know how I missed it. For men I generally advise 10-100mg/day dependant on symptoms. The more severe they are the more is needed. We do have a page with more info on How to use progesterone cream. At the bottom of the page is a list giving measures in tsp or ml, both these are used around the world. Although in all scientific and medical disciplines, the metric or SI system is used. Hence the mg for progesterone. The amount to use is very dependant on symptoms, so it's a question of experimenting till the optimal dose is found. Take care Wray

Hi Tom Thanks so much for coming back to me, but I'm so sorry about missing your query. I've no idea how! I've no idea of course what amount you are now using, but it is very safe, so if you find the 1/2 tsp a day insufficient, please increase it. I do know some men use 1tsp a day, which gives about 170mg/day progesterone. Take care Wray

Measurement Confusment
by: Anonymous

Hi Wray, Confused on measurement. In the these post, you mention about how 1/8 tsp =40mg (Natpro)...so therefore if we want to get (men) around 200mg..I multiplied by 5, therefore 40mg x 5 =200mg or 5/8 tsp...about 1/2...yet you say later on that some men are taking 1 tsp which is about 170mg. I dont get the math? ;)

Measurement Confusment
by: Wray

Hi there I do apologise, you are quite right! I must have been dreaming when I wrote that. Natpro contains 33.3mg/ml of cream, so 1/8tsp contains 20mg, not 40mg. I have done a chart showing the various ml and tsp amounts at the bottom of our page How to use progesterone cream. Thanks for pointing this out. Take care Wray
