Hi, I am 42 with PCOS and a 5mm fibroid and excess estradiol. I just started using Natpro. I'm 2 cycles in. I'm only using the Natpro from ovulation to my period. My first cycle last month is used about 200mg per day. I had heavier than normal bleeding, with some cramping. I don't normally have cramps, or they are very mild. This month I went up to 300mg per day. I am having heavy bleeding again, with severe cramping on day 1 of my cycle. Should I lower the dose?

​No, please do not lower the dose, give it time to work. You ma​y​ even need to increase to 400mg per day. Please use the cream every day with no breaks. Once things improve for you and your cycle returns to normal you can then use Natpro by following your cycle again. Please read the How to use Progesterone Cream page.

You are also in Peri-Menopause (PM) which starts are around 35 when progesterone levels drop sharply and estrogen remains the same. It will disrupts monthly cycles as explained on the page. Heavy/continual/clotting usually takes place during PM. Progesterone helps to make things a little more tolerable.​ There is a heavy bleeding protocol which has helped so many women. If things really get ​too severe. Just use the search bar and type in, Heavy Bleeding Protocol.

Please read the PCOS and Fibroid pages. Progesterone is an excellent anti-inflammatory. Try rubbing the cream on any painful area as often as needed. It should help with the cramps. You appear to be suffering from Inflammation. Please consider eating as much fermented foods as you can. It is excellent for inflammation and is the best probiotic available.

Please make sure that your Vitamin D3 is optimal, a deficiency reduces the benefits of progesterone. It is also connected to every single functioning cell in our bodies. ​​
