Does progesterone cream help with Fibromyalgia?
I'm 51 and still having regular periods as well as hot flushes. I have recently been diagnosed with Fibromyalgia and read that it can be caused by progesterone deficiency. I also have IBS, Interstitial Cystitis and am starting to suffer with vaginal dryness and have recurrent bouts of thrush.
I used Natpro before for heavy periods and it worked well so that I haven't used it for the last 2 years. I want to know if using progesterone cream would help the Fibromyalgia? I am taking 5-HTP at night and St John's Wort during the day but although I sleep ok I still wake up stiff and in pain. I am feeling quite tearful and depressed. How much progesterone cream should I use for Fibromyalgia and should I apply a seperate amount for the vaginal dryness?
