Did I take too much?

Hi Wray,
I am 48 years old and peri-menopausal. I have been using NATPRO for almost 2 years now. After 9 months of no period, I had a show one month and then a full blown period this month. I normally don't take a break from using it every day, and I thought maybe I should. Just after I stopped it, I started my period. Last night, I decided to start again and read somewhere that you can take up to 6 ml/day (I normally use about 1 ml once a day, but had some PMS etc and thought I'd try higher dosage). I took 6 ml last night. This morning I took another 3 ml and today, I feel awful. I am very dizzy and tired. I think it might have been too much too close to each other. How do I now continue from here? And is it a problem that I took too much?

Kind regards

That is difficult to do
by: Pam

Elsewhere on the site Wray discusses a doctor who gave up to 3400 mg a day to her postpartum depression patients, without problems. So that is unlikely.

What happens is, early on, estrogen receptors are activated, too. Push through it, and begin reaping the benefits.

Hi there

You are still in Peri-Menopause, a missed period for 12 months usually puts one into Menopause, your body is preparing for this. Unfortunately you are not using progesterone correctly, you should be using Natpro every day with no breaks at all and you are not using enough cream which is causing Estrogen Dominance symptoms. It takes 2-6 months before the body adjusts and positive signs are felt, longer maybe needed, it all depends on how much excess estrogen your body has. I suggest that you try using 200mg/6ml per day and see how you get on with that, you may need to use more. The tired feeling is quite normal as progesterone is a calming hormone, this should soon pass. Please use no LESS than twice a day.

Vitamin D3

Do you know what your Vitamin D3 level is? A deficiency reduces the benefits of progesterone.

I hope this helps.
