Uterine Pain When I Use Natural Progesterone Cream

by Tina
(Los Angeles, CA)

I've been using the cream during the second half of my cycle for several months. I definitely feel the benefits, but I tend to get pain in the uterine area only when I'm using the cream. The first part of my cycle, there isn't any pain. I know I have a few fibroids. Could the cream be causing them to grow more? If not, what is another possible explanation? Confused.

Uterine Pain When I Use Natural Progesterone Cream

Hi Tina It could be you're not using enough progesterone. It's almost always in the luteal phase that we get problems. Although progesterone should be the dominant hormone then, oestrogen also rises. If an anovulatory cycle should occur when no progesterone is made, or the corpus luteum is making insufficient, oestrogen will dominate. It's an excitatory, inflammatory hormone, causing cells to proliferate, including Fibroids. If too little progesterone is used it will stimulate oestrogen, which will affect the fibroids. If you have fibroids your vitamin D level is too low, see here, here, here, here and here. Please have a test done and consider taking at least 5000iu per day. 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. Any uterine dysfunction usually means taurine is low too, see here. Please consider taking 2000mg/day. We have info on How to use progesterone cream on this page. Take care Wray
