Thank you so much Wray

Dear Wray
I just wanted to thank you for your help in contacting the Natpro suppliers and Julienne in the UK. I had already re confirmed my details with the US suppliers so they could re ship when Julienne got in touch with me, so I wasn't sure what to do about her offer, in case I ended up with a double order. After speaking to her we have agreed that I will buy a further 10 tubes of Natpro from her which will hopefully arrive before Christmas and then it doesn't matter how long the 20 tubes from the US takes to arrive.
These past few weeks without Natpro have made me realise again just how much difference it has made to my life. My hot flushes, headaches and nausea have come back with a vengance, along with fluid retention and weight gain. I will be so pleased to be able to restart taking Natpro, it's the best Christmas gift possible for me.
Thank you so much for all your excellent advice and your commitment to helping women all over the world. You really are one in a million.
With heartfelt thanks and best wishes.

Thank you so much Wray
by: Wray

Hi Rosemary I thought it quicker to immediately get in touch with the orders department and Julienne, rather than you and I having a chat about it via the site! I have since spoken to both. I suggested to Julienne that she keeps supplying you, as it's so much quicker. Plus she can give advice whenever you need it, rather than having to via the site. But she's worried about cost, so is off to the PO this afternoon with your 10 tubes, plus making enquiries about price. I've asked her to get back to you about it, then me. Until she does I've told the orders department to hold off until they hear from me. As you say, once you have the ten from Jules, the balance can take it's time. If you think it's better to get from Jules in future, we can arrange for her to send the 20 you've paid for, and square it with her. I think she explained she hasn't enough stock right now to send the full 20 to you. I'm so delighted to hear how much it's helped you, Jules and I can't do without it either. But so sorry you had to go through this awful period of not having any and your symptoms coming back. The only good thing was realising how much it's helped you. That's happened to me in the past too. I ran out and my hot flushes came back, as you say, with a vengeance! If it hadn't been for that, I don't think I would have continued with it, as I was on such a low amount at the time, nothing much was changing. So I suppose I have my hot flushes to thank, if it hadn't been for them, this website would not have come into existence. Imagine thanking hot flushes, quite the most awful aspect of peri-menopause for me! Jules and I are a bit 'manic' about vitamin D, and I know she's going to ask you if you've had a test done etc. It's so important, amongst it's many roles, a lack reduces the benefits of progesterone. People in the UK and Ireland have very low levels. Bless you for your kind words! Take care Wray

Hello Rosemary, Ireland
by: Nadine

Hello there Rosemary,
I too have been in touch with Jules in the UK who has been as positive and helpful as Wray here. I have just, literally, signed for the 6 tubes I ordered from the US, and am nervously looking to start its use. Ive rubbed some, about a teaspoon amount, onto my arms and legs and am now thinking every single bodily things is down to this! I felt my legs go colder after rubbing the cream in and I now have a slight headache. Im nervous to 1) see everything as progesterone related 2) whenever a body symptom or change, rub on more cream!! I am aware I do feel foggy-eyed (but did before)!
So, i wonder if we might be able to have more direct supportive contact as fellow UK-ers (sorry to offend if you are Eire not NI). Maybe your story will help me and my newby-ness will remind you! Any advice, support, good vibes, would be very welcome....maybe Wray or Jules could share our emails confidentially with us so we dont have to put them on here??
I wish you well with your new stock, happy Christmas too :-)

my period
by: danille

I feel that I have been perimenopausal for about 6 years. My last period was two days of minimal spotting and one day for period, then done. I use progestrone cream daily probably 200 mg. I was wondering what you might think this means. Thanks Wray..

my period
by: Wray

Hi Danille I can only assume you are nearing the end of Peri-menopause and about to go into Menopause. Cycles become very erratic anything from 3 years before menopause, the average age of this is 51. Does this fit? Take care Wray

Does my son have a progesterone deficiency
by: Desperate for help

Hi Wray,

I have recently found that I have a huge progesterone deficiency and have began using the cream. It has helped amazingly. Thank you!!

However, now my 15 year old son is having some severe issues and I am wondering what role hormones are playing. He has Asperger's but you would not really know it because he tends to act very normal both socially and academically. He only has a few little quirks. He has been taking medications for depression/anxiety for a long time and they have always worked. Recently he had to change because of a side effect and things have been bad. He is absolutely exhausted all the time and is easily angry. He was in absolute depression/ anxiety mode before we added another medication. That is slowly helping the depression, but he still seems to get agitated easily. Also the exhaustion and inability to concentrate is so severe. He took the questionaire and score 57. I am just desperate for him to feel better. I am working with doctors and medicines, but I doubt they understand male hormone imbalances. I don't have a clue about them either, so I guess what I am asking is for you to send me information that will help me make sense of the role hormones may be playing in this.

Does my son have a progesterone deficiency
by: Wray

Hi there I'm so delighted the progesterone has helped. Please make sure you use enough, and watch for any Oestrogen Dominance symptoms, they can come out of the blue. Unfortunately puberty plays such havoc with us, I had depression going through it too. Any extra stress just adds a further burden on the system. I don't know where you live, but there is growing evidence that a number of factors can cause the autism spectrum disorders. One is air pollution, see here. Another is a lack of antioxidants, NAC (N-acetyl cysteine) has been used to good affect, see here. The children were younger and given 900mg/day, if you should consider it for your son, he is almost adult so you could safely give him 2000mg/day but start low, increase gradually. NAC has been found to be effective for depression too, see here. You asked if progesterone could help, well I think it can. A study found "significantly increased relative mean levels for: serum testosterone (158%), serum free testosterone (214%), percent free testosterone (121%), DHEA (192%), and androstenedione", see here. These are exceptionally high percentages over the norm. Were his androgen levels checked? If not please have them done. He's producing a great deal now aged 15, and it could be this which has tipped the scale. We do have a page on Aggression which might explain his anger, it's definitely a result of too high a testosterone level, too low a serotonin level. This paper here backs up the paper on antioxidants. Suggesting oxidative stress is the cause of the disorder, plus undermethylation. It's an excellent paper, long but worth reading. They found "(a) zinc deficiency; (b) copper overload; (c) B-6 deficiency; and (d) elevated toxic metals. However, the group expressed great surprise at data indicating that more than 90% of autistics were undermethylated." He explains what undermethylated is and what to do about it. He also found that low serotonin activity was prevalent amongst them. What also interests me is his finding of low zinc, high copper. Oestrogen suppresses zinc, elevates copper, progesterone does the reverse. Plus the sperm has the highest content of zinc of anywhere in the body, and he's growing fast now and needs a great deal. Please get his levels checked. Continued below

Does my son have a progesterone deficiency Part 2
by: Wray

Hi there And now to what is probably more important than all else, a lack of vitamin D. Please have his level checked and get it up very high, at least 100ng/ml, if you live in the States, or 250nmol/L if elsewhere. PubMed have 900 studies on vitamin D and ASD, there is a growing body of evidence to suggest a lack of it causes ASD. A lack also reduces the benefits of progesterone. It's a potent antioxidant too. These are a few of those 900 papers, see here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here and here. Progesterone and Vitamin D work in synergy, both have very similar affects. They are potent anxiolytics and antidepressants, they help exhaustion too, and muscle weakness or myopathy. If you should consider progesterone for your son, I suggest starting on 50mg/day. Please be aware oestrogen dominance can also occur in men too. If it should please increase the amount substantially. I would hope with the help of the above nutrients he will be able to come off the drugs he's taking. He doesn't have a drug deficiency disorder, he needs any imbalances he has checked. I hope the above helps, longer than you were probably expecting! But having worked with progesterone and the nutrients for so long, their ability to heal still amazes me. Please let me know how you get on. Take care Wray
