Progesterone cured my Migraines!

I've lived with migraines most of my life, but they were rare. I would have a headache maybe once or twice a year.

When I became post-menopausal in November of last year I started to have 2 to 3 migraines a week with aura. The pain of the headaches would last up to 2 days. This lasted for 3 months. I was suspicious that it was a hormone imbalance but still went to my primary care doctor and then a neurologist. Both of them prescribed pain medication that didn't work.

I started to do some research online about bio-identical hormones and came to the conclusion that what I needed was progesterone. I ordered the cream online and as soon as I started using it the migraines have disappeared. It's been 4 months since my last headache! Also, the hot flashes, anxiety attacks, insomnia and mood swings have all but vanished!

Wonderful news! They do respond to progesterone, and I'm so happy you did some research and did not just take drugs, which you say didn't work anyway. And more wonderful news your hot flushes, anxiety etc have also gone. You might like to see these papers:
