suffering

Hi
I am 48 and have had a period now for roughly 6 weeks and with an extremmly heavy flow. I am suffering from severe exhaustion all the time. The doc gave me a progesterone tab to be taken for 10 days and then stop for 5 days, however after 2 days of stopping I had a very heavy flow once again. The doc has suggested implanting the coul. However I dont like the idea of this. This why I am considering NATPRO CREAM. Do you think I am a suitable candidit for this?

Hi there The 'progesterone' tab the doctor gave you was not progesterone, but a progestin or synthetic version. This is very typical. Progesterone certainly helps heavy bleeding, but generally 400mg/day is needed. It's also essential to take the potent antioxidants which also help. NAC, taurine, the bioflavonoids and especially vitamin D. We do have a page on Menstruation which explains these nutrients and how much to take too. All women with heavy bleeding have been helped with this protocol. So yes I do believe it will help you too. But please have a vitamin D test done, it's the most important nutrient there is. The chances are yours is too low. You are now in the end stages of Peri-menopause, a most dreadful time I found. It begins 5 to 10 years before Menopause, the average age of this is 51. Heavy and/or continual bleeding is common, so too are clots, flooding, erratic periods, cramps, you name it, we get it all then! It does take time in some women before the bleeding stops, so please have patience. And please have a look at our Oestrogen Dominance page, as this can occur. Do let me know how you get on. Take care Wray

Yes, definitely, the Natpro will help you. In my experience, you need a lot of Progesterone Cream to stop the bleeding and do not give it a break. Wray will help you but I think you will need to use at least 400mg of cream per day which is about 12ml of cream. I suggest you use a heaped 5ml proper measuring spoon, twice a day. You may need this amount for awhile, but Wray will guide you. Good luck.
