Progesterone has helped me regulate

(Austin, TX)

Well, I have only been using progesterone for just under 2 months, but I must have been completely depleted because most all of the symptoms of deficiency were there, but I never got tested to confirm.

For years I, like all of you suffered in silence, doctors just ignore my complaints, like we are old grey mares put out in the pasture. I am 59 and not ready to give up that easy! I started out the first month with pro-gest and I noticed a big difference with my attitude, not quite as anxious and more calm about things. I found this website and ordered Natpro after reading so much understandable and knowledgeable information (thank you!).

I have been diagnosed with lupus, ibs and a shopping list of life robbing stuff. Although i still have very little energy I still remain peaceful in my head, not quite as worried about every little thing. Maybe with time I will hopefully get more energy. Progesterone is just great on my many bruises, usually I have them for 3-4 weeks, and now only a few days. I put it directly on the bruise and it is amazing how fast they fade away. now if only this could happen to the brown spots on my face! Other plus things are sleeping very well, regular bm's every morning, not leaking when I cough or sneeze, mind is not racing, seems to be more settled. Man, this stuff is a Godsend! so I ordered 3 more tubes and telling all my girlfriends about it too! Thank you for all of your knowledge and faith in yourself so you can help countless of others! God Bless you!

Hi Deborah Bless you for telling me this good news and for your kind words! I love your description of old grey mares too, so apt. Progesterone is calming, see here, here and here. There are also many nutrients which can help too, see our page on Anxiety. I've also found it excellent for bruises too, I used to bruise like a peach, and now rarely get them. It is a potent anti-inflammatory. I'm not sure if the brown 'spots' on your face are melasma, if so progesterone also helps these. It's caused by excess oestrogen stimulating melanocytes, these make melanin, the pigmentation in all skin types. Please see here and here. It's often a sign of adrenal fatigue too. Progesterone does resolve the problem, as it suppresses the excess oestrogen and it takes the strain off the adrenals. These make progesterone before they convert it into cortisol, one of our stress hormones. Stress drops progesterone levels sharply, thereby allowing oestrogen to dominate. Oestrogen causes water retention, which often results in constipation, progesterone is an excellent diuretic. The water retention also results in the bladder sphincter being unable to close fully, hence the leaking, see and here and here. Progesterone is low in lupus, and can help, see here. I've run out of space so will start a new comment below. Take care Wray

Hi Deborah Above all, please have a vitamin D test done, this is very low in lupus, all autoimmune diseases, and any inflammatory gut problem too. See here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here and here. For more info on testing see the Vitamin D Council, GrassrootsHealth and Birmingham Hospital websites. This is an excellent video to watch too, see here. Plus this chart on Disease Incidence. The minimum daily dose should be 5000iu's per day, or more if blood levels are too low. These should be in the range of 70-100ng/ml, and not the 30ng/ml the labs and doctors use as a cut off point. You've only been using progesterone for 2 months, please read our page on Oestrogen Dominance, as this can occur and is disconcerting if it does. Take care Wray
