Dear Wray, I recently purchased NatPro but was only able to use it for a few days due to my cycle. I suspected a progesterone deficiency after my first miscarriage in December 2010 (a blighted ovum), when I just felt out of whack for several months after. I also have Hashimoto's hypothyroidism and my doctors have been having a hard time optomizing my levels.
When I had a second miscarriage at 5 weeks in early July this year (I am now 35 years old), I went to a gynecologist who prescribed synthetic progesterone to be used only after a positive home pregnancy test. I am hopeful that using your cream will address some of the symptoms I have been experiencing, such as anxiety and digestion issues. Although I feel like I am a step ahead in that my gynecologist acknowledges the importance of progesterone in pregnancy, I wish he was more concerned about the impact of a deficiency on me, regardless of whether or not there is a pregnancy!
I am also concerned about using a synthetic form of the hormone. In terms of dosage of your cream, would you recommend using 1/4 teaspoon twice daily (for a total of a 1/2 teaspoon per day)? I am also taking folic acid, Omega 3 and a B complex, also recommended by my naturopath. I noticed in your recent response to KW, you had attached some resources on pregnancy and progesterone - I would be grateful to receive the same. Thank you very much in advance for your response and for your wonderful website.
