New user, can I combine Natpro with pharmaceutical progesteron pills?

by Irina Piatek

Hello Dear Wray,
I’ve ordered Natpro cream on your website and I have a question. Can I combine it with progesterone in pharmaceutical form (Provera pills 10 mg)? Gynecologist prescribed me it and I suppose to take it for 10 days per month during 3 months.
I’m 45 y.o., have fibroid about 40 mm size, have had a VERY heavy bleeding/flooding last month (June) that turned into endless spotting through all July. Before that I had no menstruation for 3 months. So my menstrual cycle now is very chaotic. It must be a premenopausal stuff. Doctor prescribed me progesterone to stop bleeding and spotting.
I’ve found your website in the internet and you sound so convincing that I decided to try natural progesterone - your cream. You say that it can be combined with any other medications woman may be taking. Does it include pharmaceutical progesterone?

Yours is not a pharmaceutical progesterone; provera is synthetic and NOT natural atl all.

Synthetic progesteron and natural one
by: Irina Piatek

Yes, that's right. I've just used wrong word as English is not my native language. I speak not fluent English yet.
So, I wanted to ask if it's possible to combine synthetic progesteron with natural one, Natpro cream with Provera pills?

Well, finally I have read pages of this site carefully and found the answer to my question. I SHOULD NOT take synthetic progesteron AT ALL!!! Natural one only.

Hi Irina I'm so sorry about this late reply, I went to a remote area where I thought there would be internet access, but I was wrong. Yes progesterone can be combined with a progestin, although it's not something I would recommend. You might like to read more about them on our page on Contraceptives. Doctors usually prescribe a progestin to stop the bleeding, and perhaps reduce the Fibroids. Progestin alone, as does progesterone, suppresses the oestrogen which causes the cells to proliferate. But fibroids are caused by oxidative stress, so large amounts of antioxidants are needed to reduce the inflammation. Progesterone alone will take far too long. I've found at least 400mg/day progesterone is needed to stop heavy bleeding. Plus at least 2000mg/day NAC (N-acetyl cysteine), this inhibits the MMPs which cause the bleeding. We have more info about this on our Menstruation page. Please have a vitamin D test done, you live in Canada so your level is probably very low. Vitamin D does reduce fibroids, see here, here, here, here and here. For more info on vitamin D levels, test kits etc see the Vitamin D Council, GrassrootsHealth and Birmingham Hospital websites. Blood levels should be 70-100ng/ml (175-250nmol/L) and not the 30ng/ml (75nmol/L) most labs and doctors regard as adequate. The minimum daily dose should be 5000iu's per day, although the latest research indicates it should be 10,000iu's per day, see here. You are now in Peri-menopause, I found a most awful time. Progesterone will help with many of the other symptoms you might get, it saved my sanity! Thank you for considering using our cream. Take care Wray
