Progesterone and dry eyes
(Johannesburg, South Africa)
I started using Natpro about a month ago when a friend suggested that it might help my dry, red, scratchy eyes.
Nothing happened at first except that I started reading about progesterone on the net. Wow! I was fascinated to see that I suffer from so many of the symptoms listed for progesterone deficiency. I had assumed these were due to aging and the hysterectomy (uterus and ovaries) I had 10 years ago. I had endometriosis as a young woman which prevented me from falling pregnant and it had to be surgically removed. Then in my second pregnancy I developed toxaemia and lost the baby. I had fibroids and heavy bleeding with anaemia in my forties and was advised to have the hysterectomy as the endometriosis had returned. I was prescribed a 3,2mg pure Estradoil patch which I apply twice weekly. I was told that as I had no womb and no periods I didn't need a progesterone supplement.
As the last 10 years went by I have gradually developed anxiety, poor concentration, hot flushes and broken sleep, dry, brittle nails, loss of hair, dry vagina and loss of libido, bloating, brown patches on my hands, dry lips and eyes, and the worst part is my absolute lack of interest or enthusiasm in anything! Depression!! I hate to admit it!
FOUR WEEKS and 1 tube of Natpro have blessed me with clear shining eyes, nights when I sleep right through, shiny hair (although it is still falling out) and stirrings of interest in my husband and other hobbies long dormant! THANK YOU! THANK YOU! I will continue to use it.
My question is - Should I discontinue the Estradoil patches or keep using them as my doctor says they are good for my bones and heart? THANK YOU AGAIN. I will spread the word!
