What is the worst scenario?

by Janet Nicholas

Having tried Natpro for just 4 days I experienced fantastic results on the first night in that i was no longer tired. Actually I couldn't sleep and still didn't feel tired the next day!

However, as time went on the opposite happened leaving me gaining weight, more tired and fuzzy headed. I then re looked at this site and read that this was perhaps because I was not using enough of the cream. Also that I would eventually win over the estrogen dominated body that i live in. That for some the battle takes little time and for others longer.

My question is what is the worst scenario before estrogen looses? Can it run into months or is it just a matter of days before I get better? Many thanks.

Hi Janet Progesterone can have this initial good effect, but it is also stimulating the oestrogen receptors. When this occurs, oestrogen rises leading to Oestrogen Dominance. Maybe you weren't using enough, I recommend 100-200mg/day, dependant on symptoms. Unfortunately there is no way of telling how long this phase will last. It took 6 months for all my symptoms to go, including those due to oestrogen dominance. But then I was using the normal amount recommended, which is 20-40mg/day. I had no one to ask about it at the time. I now know a much higher amount is needed to make progesterone the dominant hormone. I have found if oestrogen is high to begin with, it does take longer and symptoms are more severe. In which case I suggest using more progesterone. It's so easy to increase or decrease the amount, it is a question of experimenting. We do have more info on our page How to use progesterone cream. Oestrogen is a mitogen, stimulating cells to divide and multiply. Progesterone counters this. Oestrogen also causes water retention, progesterone also counters this. In fact it's now used via IV transfusion for brain trauma victims, it's such a good diuretic, see here and here. Take care Wray
