unable to get progesterone cream

(Rocklin)

Hi Wray, I have run out of cream and it is not available on your website. Is there another progesterone cream I can buy at the health food store until you have more? I have been using 480mg for almost 6 weeks with no improvement in symptoms. I am depressed, crying all the time, tired, and irritable. I had endometrial cancer in 2007 and had a complete hysterectomy. I was on HRT for 10 years before that with mega doses of IM Estrogen, Testosterone, and Progestin. Sould I increase the dose until I feel better, up to 1,000mg? Please advise, my family is about to disown me!

unable to get progesterone cream

Hi Eva I'm so sorry about this, it's trying to calculate demand versus over production. We make the cream every month. Although it does have a natural preservative, we prefer to do this, rather than have vast stocks lying in a warehouse. Funnily enough I have just done a cost comparison with 30 other creams, some more, some much cheaper. But I've also looked at the ingredients too, some very doubtful. Some brands don't give them, which makes them even more doubtful. Some have good ingredients, but are double, or treble the price. The best I've found is Progensa 20, it's slightly more compared to ours, i.e. $29.95, but the ingredients are safe. Although oddly enough they say 'no parabens', but they don't give what they do preserve it with. If you try it, maybe the container tells you, in which case I'd like to know please. It's half the strength of ours, comes in a 120g container, but this contains 2000mg progesterone. So you would have to use double the volume of cream to the Natpro. This is a link I found here. I don't know if it's available in shops. It's so unfortunate you were given all those hormones, no wonder you came down with cancer. Testosterone in particular does carry an increased risk for it. And then to have the stress of the hyst after them, it doesn't surprise me you're in a state. You could try increasing the amount of progesterone, there's no harm in that, only cost! But before you do, please look through our page on Anxiety. It gives a list of nutrients which all help. Please have a vitamin D test done. I sound like a broken record about this! But it's such a vital nutrient, needed by every cell to function normally. A lack increases the risk of cancer too. I ask people to have a test, so that the dose can be worked out. A normal daily dose is 5000iu's, but if the level is very low, I do recommend 10,000 or 20,000iu's. A lack of vitamin D reduces the benefits of progesterone, in fact many women have found getting their level high, persistent symptoms go. And that's in spite of high amounts of progesterone, see here.

Hi Eva A lack also causes depression, see here, here, here, here, here. and here. For more info on vitamin D levels, test kits etc see the Vitamin D Council, GrassrootsHealth and Birmingham Hospital. Blood levels should be 70-100ng/ml (175-250nmol/L) and not the 30ng/ml (75nmol/L) most labs and doctors regard as adequate. The minimum daily dose should be 5000iu's per day, although recent research indicates it should be 10,000iu's per day, see here. Take care Wray
