Non stop bleeding after 1st baby

by Amy McCarty
(Biggar Saskatchewan Canada)

After having my first baby my period never returned till she was about 15 months (we breastfeed) and now that it has it has been very irregular.

In the past 3 months I have not stopped bleeding. I have been tested and there is "no medical reason" that doctors have found. Sometimes the bleeding gets VERY heavy with large clotting. I just received this cream and hope is can help me. We are trying to have our second baby and finding it very hard as well. Really hope this will help me.

One question I did have though is how much to use? I know it says 400-600mg a day but Im not sure how to measure that. Could anyone give me a visual.

heavy bleeding

Hi Amy, each teaspoon of Natpro is 170 milligrams if I remember correctly. I would start with a teaspoon in the morning, then again mid afternoon and then before bed. If you need more then use it in between those times. Keep in mind though, progesterone will clean out excess estrogen from the uterine lining. Which means heavier bleeding and clots. Also it does upset the cycle but the key is to use it straight through until you get estrogen dominant symptoms under control. Make sure to take 5000 iu's of vitamin d as well. It may take some time to get right but it does work, hope this help until Wray responds.

Hi Amy Well I couldn't have put it any better than Annette has, she's always so spot on. Maybe because she's been having so much trouble herself, and is finally coming right. I have found 400mg/day is needed to stop heavy continual bleeding. As Annette says 1tsp is about 170mg progesterone, so you would need 12ml per day, or about 2 1/2 tsp to get 400mg progesterone. Oestrogen is a mitogen, it stimulates cells to grow. Vital in stimulating the endometrium each month to grow and thicken ready for a possible fertilised egg. But in excess it stimulates cells to continue growing. MMP's are enzymes that break down protein. They play a role in the breakdown of endometrial tissues at the end of the menstrual cycle. If they are over active, as would be the case with excess oestrogen in the body, as oestrogen stimulates their production, the result is a pathological reaction. A high level of MMP's can lead to inflammation and excessive bleeding in the uterus. If a low level of progesterone is present, and a high level of oestrogen, the lining will continue to grow. With a high level of MMP's the lining will also continue to break down. Progesterone suppresses both MMP's and oestrogen. But a high level is needed to overcome this. As Annette also says, please take vitamin D, a minimum of 5000iu's, but please also have a test done. Most people in Canada have to low a level, see here, here, here and here. Vitamin D is vital for ovulation, a successful pregnancy, and for the growing foetus, see here, here, here, here and here. These are excellent videos to watch too, see here and here. We also have a page on Pregnancy, it explains the role progesterone plays and how much to use etc. Take care Wray
