I don't have a story, just a question. If I no longer have ovaries, because I have had a complete hysterectomy, why would I need progesterone cream? I went in for a papsmear the other day and my doctor adviced against using the cream saying it would cause cancer. I have been using your cream. I find no significant changes, but I mainly wanted it because of being diagnosed with the first stages of osteoperosis. With that said, I do like the cream. I don't know why, but I do.

Thank you for your time and response.

Hi Bertha There are so many Progesterone Misconceptions that I've done a page on them. One is that it can cause cancer, it can't, as it inhibits mitosis. In fact it's been used successfully in some cancers. I'm delighted you like the cream, even though you don't know why! Because progesterone has been labelled a female hormone, and a sex hormone, when it's neither, it's other roles are all but forgotten. Progesterone regulates gene expression, has a positive fundamental effect on cell differentiation and growth, with anti-oxidative and autoimmune anti-inflammatory mechanisms. It positively effect the nervous system by stimulating neurotrophic factors, quenching oxidative hyperactivity and regulating autoimmune responses. In fact vitamin D does exactly the same, and it's been noted that the two work hand in hand. This came out in studies on Traumatic Brain Injury victims. A lack of vitamin D reduced the benefits of progesterone in the studies. Many women writing in have found their symptoms are helped even more when getting their vitamin D levels high. I feel your vitamin D is low, hence the oesteo, please have a test done. For more info on vitamin D levels, testing etc see the Vitamin D Council, GrassrootsHealth, Birmingham Hospital and Vitamin D Links websites. Blood levels should be 70-100ng/ml or 175-250nmol/L and not the 30ng/ml or 75nmol/L most labs and doctors regard as adequate. The minimum daily dose should be 5000iu's per day, although the latest research indicates it should be 10,000iu's per day, see here. Take care Wray
