Progesterone Stories

Search over 7,800 pages on this site...

Over the years testimonials (which I prefer to call 'progesterone stories') have been coming from people all over the world about how they have benefited from progesterone therapy.

Below you'll find just a handful amongst literally thousands of progesterone stories mostly sent by email. We are working right now at grouping these in a similar way to that done on this page and then listing links to as many of these as possible.

What you'll find below is a selection of messages from people who have suffered from a wide range of health problems. All have benefited from this progesterone therapy.

All the messages are unsolicited.

As you are probably interested in a specific health problem that relates directly to you or someone you know I have headed each message with the name of the health issue that it specifically relates to. So just scroll down until you see a heading that fits what you're looking for.

If you have any 'progesterone stories' (or relating to any health matter) of your own why not let others hear it first hand by joining the forums through the FAQ pages (you'll find a link in the right margin).

I'd love to hear from you.

You can also read my personal story of years of health problems that were brought to an end by progesterone.

"I am a very satisfied ongoing user of Natpro. By the way, I have used other Natural Progesterone, and bought in the USA and Ireland, and it is not such good quality. This is the best!

With great thanks, Rosemary M."

"Hi there Wray

My daughter purchased your product (Natpro) for me from Kim Dyson and I would like to express how wonderful I'm feeling after using it for just on 5 days.

I would be very interested in promoting your product in my area as Kim Dyson is 85 Km's away from me and the ladies at work have shown interest.

Please contact me at your earliest convenience.

Depression, Stress, HRT

Tanya Vandenberg, South Africa

"This is the first time I have ever contacted a supplier, but I just have to say thank you. I am thirty-four years old, and have suffered endlessly with PMS, to the point of severe clinical depression.I thought I would have to live my best years being crazy for 10 days of every month.

Since using Natpro, my periods take me by surprise. Almost no mental symptoms, much better sleep, NO cramps, less cravings. In short,I feel I have got myself back, and my whole family is grateful! I am never without it.

Sincere thanks

"Thanks for the info. You're very welcome to use my comments. I already tell absolutely every woman I know with similar problems. I'm a regular one-woman marketing machine for your product as it is - so go ahead!! You can use my name, too.



"I live in the UK, where progesterone cream is practically unknown. I began having problems five years ago as I hit 40. I had a myriad of strange symptoms, which were ultimately put down to stress and depression, and I was given antidepressants. I felt okay for a while, then many symptoms returned, and this time I was given HRT. For a while - improvement - then, back where I started. HRT was changed to a different brand. No change - in fact, it all got worse. In desperation I began to read up all I could about hormones, stress, oestrogen etc. etc. and decided that maybe progesterone was the missing ingredient...? To cut a long story short, by a convoluted route I have discovered your cream and this site, and I wanted you to know that I think the product and the site are brilliant. I WISH that more UK women and their GP's were informed - how can I help to let them know? Where else can I find more information? Thank you for this site - I will recommend it to everyone.

Yours gratefully, Julia Finan"

"You are very welcome to use it! I am delighted to be of help to you, Julia Finan"

"Hi there Wray,

You don't know me, but I know you through Anja, and Natpro. I have been wanting to write to you for a long time now, but have not had your address. I am the lady that you are so kindly helping with samples of Natpro. I have had a problem with major depression as far back as I can remember, and I have always been looking for a solution. I have been on and off Prozac many times - it helped, but I hated taking it because I knew that it was detrimental to my body in other ways.

I always wondered what caused my 'chemical imbalance', as it doesn't just happen by itself. I have used oral spray vitamins with St Johns Wort in it, and it worked very well, but when I fell pregnant, I had to go off it. I really had the most terrible pregnancy - I was 38 yrs old - and battled terribly with all sorts of problems, including heart palpitations, blood sugar problems and very bad depression.

Anja invited me to one of her talks on the hormones, and I realized just what was CAUSING my imbalance, and my depression. But, I could not correct it because we could not nearly afford the cream as we were going through major financial difficulties. Anja then came to me and said that you were giving me some samples to use.

I am eternally grateful for your help!! The cream took about a month and a half to start working (I nearly gave up!), but I could see that my moods were slowly stabilizing. I have grown stronger and more stable every day, and am coping very well emotionally at the moment. I am scared to think about what life would have been without Natpro, considering how I was battling just after I had my baby. I am able to function 99% better, and sometimes find myself overdoing it because I feel so well mentally.

I just want to thank you once again, sincerely, and as soon as we get back onto our feet again financially, I will pay for the cream.

One other thing that I need your advice on, if possible. My hair is falling out in handfuls - I don't know why. I am not taking any vitamins at the moment (we can't afford those either), and I know that that could be a big part of it, but, a couple of people have suggested it is hormonal. Do you think it is, and if so, am I not using enough of the Natpro? I don't use very much at the moment, because I don't want to waste.

Could you please let me know if you have any ideas about it, when you have a spare moment.

Thanking you once again for your help - I really greatly appreciate it.


Janet Gannon"

Here's Wray's reply...

"Dear Janet

What a lovely email! And the last thing I want is payment for the cream. We're all on this planet to help each other, to share, and if in any way you've been helped then that's magic! On no account must you think you are wasting the cream, you're not, so please use it liberally, we will continue to give it to you. You must use at least 5ml/day, following your cycle if you have one back again after the birth. Hair falling out is a sign of stress, so use more cream and if you can afford it a vitamin B complex, Solgar is the best I think. I would also like to send you some tryptophan, it's the amino acid precursor to serotonin, the body's own anti-depressant. Can you please email me your postal address. Don't know if Anja sent you info on depression, but in case not I've pasted some here for you. Please keep in touch, take care

Lotsa love Wray"

And Janet again...

"Hi there Wray

I was so pleased to receive your email - I was wondering whether you had received mine.

Thank you for your extreme kindness - I will increase my dose of Natpro, as at the moment I am only using it as a face cream - about 1/2 ml a day.

Any information on depression I always accept and devour, as I have been afflicted for so long. I still cannot believe that for the past four months I have been feeling so non-depressed without being on any medication! You mentioned that you were going to paste information into your email, but I didn't see anything - perhaps you forgot to put it in.

Thank you again for all your help. I will keep in touch.

I have attached a photo of our little girl, Kaylee, when she was three months old - she is now 6 months already. And I am able to have a relaxed, full relationship with her, thanks to Natpro! By the way, I have not started my monthlies yet - am I supposed to have them already?

Thanks again for everything.


Hot flushes, PMS, Bloating & more

"Dear Wray,

I have been using Natpro cream for six weeks as recommended by my physician who diagnosed a lack of progesterone. After one month of use a number of the symptoms had subsided to a degree (hot flushes, weepiness, bloating, PMS symptoms and aggression, however I was still experiencing some facial flushes, some weepiness and still had lower abdominal pains). As such she suggested I increase the dose which I did two weeks ago. Since then I have experienced a massive increase in the amount of water I have been passing each day. I have to get up up to five times each night despite not drinking for at least two hours before going to sleep, am passing water throughout the day usually at half hour intervals (sometimes as little as five minutes after the last time). I also have a very heavy sensation in my lower abdomen and pains throughout my cycle. My physician says this is normal And that I am simply getting rid of excess fluid I had amassed while bloating. I would be very grateful if you could inform me if you aware of these passing symptoms as a possible result of using the cream. I am 31 years old, do not drink tea or coffee (ie diuretics) but do drink cola.

Thank you in advance for your assistance."

Painful joints

Dear Wray
Thanks for the papers and info. I have printed them all off and will wade through them. I am interested in joining the group, please.

Bearing in mind that I have not yet had the time to read all the information you sent, on quick scan it seems to be mostly associated with the more obviously hormonal type problems, and epilepsy (very interesting!) I have a question for you, and perhaps you may have some relevant information to send me too:

I have been suffering, and I have a number of female patients all around age 50, who suffer with aching joints which can be severe. I personally found that if I did not eat wheat I could reduce the pain by about 80% which was great, though I still had significant stiffness and discomfort especially in the small joints of my hands and feet. Since I have greatly increased my dose of Natpro the residual stiffness and pain seems to be vanishing and whilst on holiday recently I have eaten wheat bread and pasta for the first time in about 2 years without ill effect.
This is all fantastic, do you think I can attribute it to the natural progesterone?
If the progesterone could be having this affect, what do you think the link with wheat could be?

My 'creative' use of the cream whilst on holiday was to treat insect bites, I am sure they itched less and went away more quickly. I usually react very badly to bites, coming up in large welts which can be very itchy and painful, I had none of that suffering this time.

With kind regards

Tiredness, Headaches

This cc'd from Dorota Stylo...

"Hi Brenda!

It was great to have you both here. I hope you feel ok and hope you forgot about the operation. I have many people asking me about the cream. The fans of Natpro are growing. You asked me to monitor my neighbours progress, Lill. She is doing very well. She started to use Natpro from the 12 October,10 days ago. She all ready noticed some changes in herself. She isn't so tired like before, she doesn't use painkillers so often because her headaches aren't that painful. She looks a lot more happy and positive. This morning she was awake at 8am not at 10 or 11 like usually. I am very happy to see how she responds on the cream for such a short period. Lill sends you her regards and lots of love. She doesn't know how to thank you.

Take care. Love Dorota"

Depression, Migraine, Backache, Allergies & more

"Dear Wray!

Thank you for the wonderful thing, which is Natpro. As from the period of 18 months, the cream is an inseparable part of my day. The years of great distress to my body and mind are finally over.

I am 51 years old and my health problems have started long time ago. During those times I have been visiting many doctors of different specialties, as my problems were on the increase, as the years went by. Couple of times a year I had sinus treatments. Gynecologists, for over twenty years, were prescribing for me (in vain) different medication for yeast infection. Backache, painkillers and hours of physiotherapy. 12 years ago, I've gone through hysterectomy. The more intense migraines, made my day really uncomfortable. Seven years ago, I had an ovary operation. Then, another operation followed, on my nasal. All that, according to the doctors, had to remove the cause of migraines. After couple of month, I had to go back, unfortunately, to my old dose of painkillers. I became allergic to my cosmetics. The numbness to my hands and legs got worst and worst. I felt always tired, irritated and unhappy. My energy diminished and I have lost my optimism. I didn't want to reconcile myself with the state at which I was at, I felt trapped. None of the painkillers helped, antibiotics, operations. I didn't seem to keep up with responsibilities at home, nor at work. My family was suffering together with me. I was being dogged, the doctor was prescribing me antidepressant drugs. I took them for half a year and there seemed to be a slight relief. Afterwards, it was even worse than before, I couldn't look at myself into a mirror- I surrendered.

The help came at the last moment. Friend of my, Janine, took me for a 'talk' where I got to know the effects of natural progesterone. I started to apply the cream. Already, after four days, I could feel a slight relief in my sinuses. My neck was not as stiff and there were fewer backaches. New days followed and there were new successes. I started to think more clearly, woke up full of joy and happiness. I could feel, that I regained my energy. My husband and my sons were getting back a smiling wife and mom. I was not afraid of making any new plans for the future and it was, finally, myself back again who didn't have to carry painkillers with herself wherever I went. As from one and a half years now, I did not have any migraines, mood changes, hot flushes, sleep-less nights, stiff neck, backaches, eye allergies, any fear for meeting with people. One after the other, I was crossing them out from my 'troubled-list'. Year and a half ago, there were more then 40 of them.

I thank you once again for Natpro. I will always be grateful to Janine. I feel, as I was reborn again. I really don't recall when I ever was feeling so great. Pity, however, that I didn't know about Natpro 20 years ago. It is only therefore, that I tell my relatives and friends about the cream.

Love from all my heart, Dorota


Dear Wray! I sent you my story, I am not the greatest storyteller, so I would really appreciate, if you could correct my mistakes and my style of writing. Please, feel free to add more or take something out. If this has to help others and encourage people to use Natpro, the story has to 'catch'. Thus, I leave it in your hands. I do not object to having all my personal details enclosed together with the story. Under such a wonderful product, I can sign with my both hands,

Love, Dorota"

Pre-menstrual tension (PMT or PMS)

"Hi Wray

Earlier this year you helped me (via Germaine) with various aspects of using Natpro. I've now successfully been using it since about February (along with various soya supplements, star flower oil, etc) and as a suggestion from Dr Bond (on my brief visit to her!) I've been doing 3 weeks on and 1 week off. I think she suggested it on the basis that if I were still having periods and taking the usual HRT it would be a 3:1 ratio, plus to avoid endometrial cancer. I notice that as I come towards the end of my 3 weeks, I do start showing slight PMT symptoms of irritability, more sweats/flushes, food cravings (particularly chocolate) and slight bloating (probably due to the consumption of chocolate!!!). I don't think I've had a regular monthly period (except for the 7 months I was on HRT) for about 3 years now (I'm 49 yrs) so would you think its necessary to have the 1 week break? I don't seem to suffer very much more from the flushes during the week off. If you've come across any more relevant info since we last spoke - I'm always eager for it!

Haven't seen Germaine for some time now although we communicate every now and then. They seem to have had a really busy summer, but I need some more Natpro so will be in touch with her shortly!

Don't feel you have to respond asap - I know you are a v.v. busy lady!

Cheers Judy Jenkins"

HRT alternative

"Hi Wray

Of course I don't mind you using that letter or what you edit from it. I would imagine Germaine's details would be more appropriate than mine, particularly as I am about to live on a boat for the next 3 or 4 years as we sail to Chile and spend a couple of years there! (I will need to take a LARGE supply of Natpro when I leave!!)

I don't know if you want to add in the fact that I started using Natpro after experiencing a Blood Clot and was advised to come off HRT?

Hope all is going well with you. I'm happy to say that the Natpro is still doing its stuff for me although I do tend to come off it for a few days after finishing each tube (till I start flushing up again!)

All the best Judy Jenkins"

"Dear Wray,

After trying a number of different HRT treatments and suffering
uncomfortable side effects, I was given Natpro cream by a private consultant and have been more than happy with the results.

My own GP has now provided me with a private prescription for Natpro but I have been unable to find anyone to supply it to me. Can you help?


Cindy Larke"

High blood pressure (Hypertension), Hot flushes, Alternative HRT

"I cannot express adequately enough in words how delighted and well I am feeling as a result of going off HRT and using only "Natpro"!

In January 2001 I started to wean myself off the HRT that I had been on for nearly 3 years. I did it gradually over a period of 3 months and from April onwards I was using only "Natpro", twice a day.

I have suffered with Hypertension since I turned 50 years old and the menopause started to set in, and I never connected the two. I am now 56 years old. My blood pressure was often 200/110, even on medication, and I seemed to suffer terrible side effects from the tablets, not the least of which were upper respiratory infections and coughs which lasted for several months on end, until my medication was changed, only to return again after a month or two on the next tablet.

However, the good news is that I have been off ALL high blood pressure tablets since the first week of August this year and have had my BP checked every couple of weeks and cannot believe that my readings are now on average 122/66 !!! I have suffered considerable stress in the past few months due to family problems and my blood pressure has remained consistently low, despite the circumstances! This is just too wonderful for words and I wish to thank you for introducing me to "Natpro" and my new state of health!

My hot flushes never returned and I found that very gradually I seemed to be losing weight. I was obviously a prime candidate for "oestrogen dominance" and just could never lose weight, no matter how hard I tried or which diet I tried. Anyway, that is in the past and my weight is slowly but surely diminishing, without any particular diet, just healthy eating.

I thank God too, because I am quite convinced that going the "natural" way is in His plan as well! Thanks again and God Bless

Dawn Liebenberg"

Estrogen dominance

"Dear Wray,

I saw Dr Bond last Thurs. She was delightful and totally sympathetic and helpful, as I had expected. She said it is obvious that I am oestrogen dominant which may be just me, the implant or a combination of both. Nothing can be done about the implant. She has prescribed a stronger progesterone cream - 10% - which she has made by a chemist in Richmond and I am to use it for a month and then phone her. I think she wants me to have a saliva test while I am using the cream to see how the levels are. She hopes if it all works that I can eventually go back to using Natpro. I am looking forward to, hopefully, feeling normal soon!

Thanks for all the emails you have forwarded. I love the "Kids in Church". Had a good laugh.

Lots of love, Nicky"



Two years ago I was trying to fall pregnant... and having very little effect and by the third year I was becoming very emotional and weepy. Even packed my job in.

My Mother talked me round to seeing a natural doctor who advised me that my progesterone levels were very low and that my oestrogen level to high, he prescribed me the Natro cream. (alas I do not have his number anymore)

Within one month I had fallen pregnant and now have a very beautiful girl (aged two)... so two years on and my husband and I have decided to go for our second........ no luck so far and I haven't even be on the pill. I can tick off many of the problems you listed as I have too much oestrogen in the body and I know that my hormones are unbalanced. I bleed lightly more or less the whole month and then at the end of the month have a regular period. Its the same story all over again but worse as I didn't have the constant bleeding which my GP thinks are fibroids.

My GP is testing my blood this week ..but I would like to be able to buy some more Natro cream this possible.????.....I know my GP will have no idea of this ...(small town practise !!!!!) Can I buy over the web/phone?

My husband and I swear that this cream helped me along to becoming pregnant the first time and we thank you for this.

Look forward to hearing your comments.


Mrs. Rosie Baldwin"

Here is Wray's response...

"Dear Rosie What a lovely email! Many thanks for the kind words, the cream helped me so much over seven years ago, when I first heard about progesterone and since that time we've helped many women (men too!). I know it would have helped you with falling pregnant as we've helped other women too. When you do start it again I recommend that you try using the smallest amount, ie 1ml for the first few days, then step it up to 2ml for the next few, until on the last few days you're using about 7.5 to 10mls per day. That should help control the constant bleeding. It could take a few months, but the fibroids will eventually go too, it does need patience though! I'm forwarding your email to Julienne who can help you with purchasing the cream and either of us can answer any more questions you might have. We have a web site and I would love to use your email on it. If you do give your permission, we would change your name unless you prefer us to keep it. Please think about it and then let me know. Take care

Kind regards Wray"

Cancer, Hormone Balance

Dr Paul Layman was asked to comment about natural progesterone and possible side effects. He practices in the UK and runs a cancer clinic. Below is his reply to another prominent UK promoter of progesterone therapy.

"Natpro is safe as houses as far as I am concerned. People get ill because their systems are out of balance. Bringing the hormones back into balance with progesterone is part of the healing.

Best wishes, Paul"

Here's a letter written to Dr Layman that he in turn forwarded to Wray...

Pre-Menstrual Tension (PMT)

"I am thrilled to bits with the results in the way the (Natpro) cream has worked for me. My periods are not half so painful as they were- and I hardly get PMT. Sometimes I've started my period and it's been a surprise to me - because normally I know the week before I'm due with really bad stress, but not with the cream. It has helped me tremendously and I would like to thank you for giving women the option of trying such a wonderful product. I tell everybody I can and even my doctor wants details of it so I've sent him the booklet and the tape.
