Progesterone for men

by Barry

I am a 62 year old male with BPH as is typical these days. I understand by now that such problems are a result of living in an estrogenic world of pesticides, petrochem, soybeans etc. We are literally drowning in estrogen it seems.

My urologist meanwhile advises me not to take progesterone either natural or otherwise as he says it would make the symptoms worse.
He also as a standard measure prescribed me with urolosin (alpha blocker). Would that also tend to raise my estrogen dominance?

Confused with these contradictions I would like your advice.

Progesterone for men
by: Wray

Hi Barry. Yes it is typical, more and more men are getting BPH and I have no doubt it's the poisons we have to contend with. More and more women are now getting problems rarely encountered before. Alpha blockers block the adrenergic receptors, so preventing adrenaline and noradrenaline from working. This in turn stops muscles contracting forcing them to relax. Adrenaline of course constricts blood vessels too. They often give 5-alpha reductase inhibitors to prevent testosterone converting to DHT, which is implicated in BPH. Although I'm more inclined to the oestrogen theory, as oestrogen is a known stimulant of cells. I don't believe the urolosin would increase oestrogen, but it certainly won't reduce it. Interestingly the incidence of BPH in men in rural areas is very low compared to those eating and drinking contaminated western food. Progesterone is a male hormone too, it is not exclusively female, it does suppress oestrogen and safely too for both sexes, as it's not a sex hormone. We have many men using it to raise libido, for BPH, depression and stress. I received a delightful email from a man in the UK about a year ago, he's given permission to use it, I'll paste it below:

"Hello Wray,
You asked me to report back to you once I had tried Natpro for a good length of time. I am one of your relatively rare male customers, aged 63, and was initially attracted to Natpro for two potential benefits: an improvement to my (benign) prostatitis, and an improvement to my libido. I am instinctively sceptical, and am not likely to be subject to the placebo effect - so I like to think! Six months on I can report a definite and very welcome outcome in both respects. Whereas I used to have the usual difficulties associated with an enlarged prostate: poor flow and excessive frequency of urination, with consequently disturbed nights, I now routinely sleep soundly through six or seven hours, and the rate of flow, while not as vigorous as many years ago, is good and continuous. As for the libido .... let me simply say that I am delighted with the results in my sexual life.
An entirely unexpected effect, and also welcome, was that very quickly (I mean within days of starting the applications) there was a marked effect on my sleep, which had been light and broken, but became heavier and more continuous and therefore more satisfactory, even though in those early days I was still having to get up once or twice to urinate. So, many thanks indeed. You have an ongoing customer! (Use this if you like, but anonymously, please)"

Interestingly progesterone not only suppresses oestrogen, which normally reverses the oestrogen stimulated mitosis, but it's an anti-inflammatory, inflammation is often present in BPH. Furthermore it stimulates the production of nitric oxide, in much the same way as Viagra does, but without the adverse side affects. Both NO and progesterone are vasodilators and both prevent platelets aggregating. Take care, Wray
