Endometrial Hyperplasia

My doctor wants to put me on Prometrium to treat endometrial hyperplasia due to estrogen dominance to shrink the thickness. I am uncertain about taking Prometrium and was wondering if Natpro could work to shrink the thickness, what the recommended dosage is, and how often it is taken during the month. I am a 50-year-old with regular periods.

First of all I am impressed that your doctor is recommending progesterone, not many do.

Progesterone, if used correctly will help to clear the thick lining of the uterus. Low levels of the amino acid N-acetyl cysteine, vitamin D3, taurine have been found in women with endometrial cancer, cystic endometrial hyperplasia, fibromyoma (fibroids), and dysfunctional uterine bleeding and bioflavonoids have been found to strengthen capillaries see here. Please consider taking these.
Peri-Menopause also brings on heavy/continual bleeding with clots. You are fortunate that your periods are regular, this may change soon.

If the Prometrium is in pill form then I suggest breaking the caps open and mix with a good organic cream, or MCT oil and use transdermally. All oral progesterone methods are not effective as around 96% get destroyed by the gut and liver see here. Try that and see how you get on. Failing which, please consider using Natpro.

Usually between 100-200nmg is needed per day. I recommend using every day even though your periods are regular, it's needed during peri-menopause. Unless of course you are wanting to conceive which I don't think you are. I suggest 200mg Natpro to start with and see how you get on with that, you may need to increase until things stabilize and the body adjusts to progesterone therapy. Insert Natpro cream in the vagina at night, this will also help. It's the best place for absorption but it also deals with inflammation that could be 'lurking' there. Please read the How to use Progesterone Cream page and make sure that you are aware of those Estrogen Dominance symptoms.

As mentioned regularly on this website, please make sure that your Vitamin D3 is optimal at all times. A deficiency reduces the benefits of progesterone and is connected to every single functioning cell in our bodies making it vital. Cofactors are very important too.

Best of luck.
