Can progesterone still help after a hysterectomy ?

I'm 60 and had a hysterectomy several years ago. Can my body still absorb progesterone without my uterus ?
And I recently had a spot found on my breast but I'm not sure yet, if its benign?
What is your recommendation if I do not want conventional intervention ?

Thank you,
Kathryn

Hi Kathryn

Yes you can still use progesterone, in fact it is vital as progesterone levels drop after having a hysterectomy. Between 100-200mg progesterone cream is needed. Please read the How to use Progesterone Cream and Estrogen Dominance pages.

The Menopause page explains in detail about breast cancer, please read the references. This page also explains in detail.

Vitamin D3 is very important. A deficiency reduces the benefits of progesterone, optimal range is between 70-100ng/mL. Nothing less than 5,000iu's is needed daily. Co-factors are needed when taking D3, magnesium and vitamin K2 with no soy are the important ones.
