Breast tenderness increasing

by Betty

I found this website as I have questions about taking Progesterone. I embarked on Bioidentical Hormone Therapy 6 months ago under a doctor's care. For the most part the results have been very positive.

Currently the progesterone I take is a pharmacy compounded oral capsule. Although I was told about some initial breast tenderness, I still have it. This causes some concern because pain = something not right in my book. My doc did not prescribe a cream as she felt they were ineffectual.

Any thoughts?

Breast tenderness increasing

Hi Betty Creams are not ineffectual, they do work well. Please see this web page. In fact oral progesterone is the least effective means of delivery, please see this.

And this.

The breast tenderness is caused by excess oestrogen, please consider using a cream. This can be rubbed on to the breasts whenever they are sore. Creams are far more versatile than any other route, as they can be used anywhere. Excellent for pain, burns, piles, aches, skin etc. Please see this web page. Take care, Wray
