Progesterone receptor positive breast cancer
(Welland, Ontario, Canada)
I am 49 yrs old and have been using NatPro for about 2 years. It has really helped to alleviate my perimenopausal symptoms (hot flashes, palpitations, dizziness, breast tenderness, fatigue, anxiety, depression), and there has been a real improvement in my quality of life since I began using it.
I would like to recommend your progesterone cream to my 75 yr old mother, but am concerned about her previous (20 yrs ago) diagnosis of progesterone receptor positive ductal carcinoma in situ. She had a lumpectomy, radiation therapy, a five year course of Tamoxifen and continues with yearly follow-up exams (all of which have been negative). She used high dose estrogen birth control when she was younger, and then HRT during menopause. I realize that breast cancer is stimulated by estrogen, but have been unable to find any information on the role of the progesterone receptor in breast cancer tissue and was hoping that you could give me some information.
Thank you for your wonderful product and all of your great information.
