Still need little help

by Tracy Zimmerman

I have been using Natpro for 5-6 weeks and doing pretty well. But I tried using it by the directions (I am 37, period 29-30 days), but I fell like I can never make it to the 14 days before period. I have been using 7 days after my period. Is this going to screw my system up or am I ok with doing this?

Hi Tracy I'm a bit confused, so I'm going to make assumptions in my reply. When you say you can't make it to the 14 days before you bleed, do you mean your symptoms are bad? I take it you are using it for the 14 days before you bleed? Then you stop for your period and start again after it's stopped? Which means you are using it for about 21 days continuously? If your symptoms are bad I suggest using the progesterone every day until they get better, maybe 2-3 months. Using it during your period too. Once they're better, start following your cycle again. Alternatively use more progesterone during the 14 days before your period, this often helps too. I'm not sure how much you're using but suggest at least 200mg/day if you follow this route. It's safe to use progesterone continuously, after all it's only mimicking pregnancy. It can stop ovulation, like the contraceptives do, but with no adverse side affects. I hope I've understood you correctly. Take care Wray

Well still using the cream doing ok but not great. But I think I have figured out that some of my intestal issues are from the hormone imbalance. Let me explain a little better. When I use the cream I can have bowel movements when I slow down everything stops. I have been using cream through my periods for a while I still can't make it through when I start my period without using the cream. My periods are getting shorter and shorter. Am I messing everything up? I don't feel like it is getting better. I had traditional hormone test done they said they weren't abnormal. I am going to get other test that breaks it down better. Will that show better the imbalance? Help

Hi Tracy Oestrogen causes us to retain water. So it can cause constipation, as it draws water from the gut. Progesterone is an excellent diuretic, reversing oestrogen's affect. Hence your tummy works while using progesterone. You're not messing things up by using the cream daily, it will settle down in time. The problem with tests is the ratio between oestrogen and progesterone is never checked. This is far more important than the actual level of hormone. The best test is a saliva test, I hope this is the one you are getting. Take care Wray
