Angry I didn't know about Natural Progesterone

My period stopped when I was 41 and I thought I could take the flashes until I couldnt. Went on Premarin/Provera for 10 years and heard about Dr. Helen Pensanti.

Used that and didnt understand how it works so went to Vivelle/Prometrium and breast always hurt got off that. Jan 2011 went cold turkey off everything. Actually felt good and started losing weight but the flashes, insomnia, hair loss, vaginal atrophy stuck around and decided to try cream again but had the wrong cream. It had Red Clover so pain in breasts started ect. I read your site and bought the one that has no Red Clover and today I felt really good for a change. You also helped me not be afraid to increase the dose and I believe I can make it through this.

I am 57 and today I really feel pretty good and believe in a few months there will be some real positive changes. When I use this one up I will order yours.... Thank you!

Angry I didn't know about Natural Progesterone

Hi Mrs C I'm delighted you were encouraged to use a higher amount. I've found if too low it merely exacerbates Oestrogen Dominance. Please be aware that painful breasts can occur when first using progesterone, or when increasing the amount. It's not necessarily the red clover, although that does have oestrogenic properties. Progesterone does help painful breasts, see here, here, here, here, here and here. So if you find your breasts hurting, please rub the cream directly on them. Progesterone is an excellent anti-inflammatory, I suggest using some cream in your vagina too. It's best done at night, as during the day it tends to run out. If you still have hair loss, please consider taking 2000mg/day N-acetyl cysteine, 2000mg/day inositol, 5000iu's/day vitamin D, 2-3mg biotin and 100mg thiamine (B1). These all help hair growth. Take care Wray
