Progesterone and Adenomyosis
by: Wray

Hi Carol. Adenomysosis is due to excess oestrogen, oestrogen stimulates it's growth. Progesterone does suppress excess oestrogen. But as with endometriosis, another problem caused by excess oestrogen, a large amount of progesterone is needed initially. This is the protocol I suggested to one woman with endo who had severe pain 24 hrs a day...
Tsp Days mg Tubes
3 4 500mg/day 1
2 6 330mg/day 1
11/2 8 250mg/day 1
11/2 8 250mg/day 1
Total 26 4

She followed this and found her pain gone. She is still using the 250mg/day, but is gradually decreasing the amount till she finds the optimum. I asked her to use it daily and throughout her period too for the first 2 to 3 months. After which I suggested she tried following a cycle again. If you do decide to follow this, we do have a web page on how to get a cycle going again, please see here. Before you start progesterone, please read about oestrogen dominance here.

I would suggest taking anti inflammatory nutrients too, 1600mg/day arginine, 1800mg/day N-acetyl cysteine, 5000iu's vitamin D and 2000mg/day taurine. Please have a vitamin D test done too, up to 50% of us are deficient and it plays such a huge role in our health. In fact a lack of vitamin D reduces the benefits of progesterone. For more info please see here. Take care, Wray
