Dryness

by Clara
(Ontario)

I've been on progesterone cream for a few months, working up slowly. I've finally got to a dose that has made my estrogen dominance symptoms subside. I no longer feel sick and dizzy, my brain fog is better etc.

However, I've now got dryness and discomfort down below. I'm so disappointed. Do I need to reduce my dose??? There is no doubt in my mind that this has been caused by my taking the prog cream. Have u balanced too far the other way??? My estrogen was not high to start with.

Hi Clara

What progesterone cream are you using and how much? Any reason why you worked up slowly? I am pleased to read that your Estrogen Dominance symptoms have improved though.

You haven't stated your age so I am assuming that you are either in Peri-Menopause or Menopause where dryness becomes an issue. Natpro Progesterone Cream is excellent when inserted in the vagina at night. I have been doing this for 17 years now and I do not have a problem with dryness, I am now 66. Regardless of age though, progesterone is best when inserted in the vagina. Progesterone must be used no less than twice a day. See the How to use Progesterone Cream page.

To say that your estrogen level was not high to begin with actually means nothing. Whilst each hormone test is important, it is the ratio between progesterone and estrogen that is important. My guess is that you need to use more progesterone. If you have your hormone tests you can compare them to the correct information as provided on the Hormone Testing page.

Vitamin D3 is vital as mentioned many times on this website. Level must be optimal.
