From healthy to unhealthy

by Diane Fleming-Myers

I was always healthy until I started going into menopause, then I started to have allergys, always sneezing, seemed that I was allergic to everything.

The doctor never tested to see what it was, then came asthma and nasal polyps. I had a stuffed up nose for over 2 years before my operation to have them removed. Oh, I also forgot high blood pressure, and I'm a slim person and I eat a very good diet and I'm very active. I have an active job and have 3 dogs to walk. I had my operation less than a year ago then I started to get stuffed up again, seen the ent, and the polyps are growing back. Lots of pills later im going backwards.

I asked my doctor several times if this could be my hormones as 2 of my sisters have had the same problems at menopause. He did not answer me so I guess he did not know. Anyway I started to check for myself as I just knew that it somehow was related, plus I was not going to live like this anymore. I have had no personal life for several years, (single) no sex drive, having a relationship was not at the top of my wants.

So here I am now I have started to use progesterone cream twice a day. This is day 4 and I feel a difference. Feels like I'm starting to wake up. I don't know how else to describe it. For the first time in years I feel hope and I feel a big difference with my nose, it is starting to feel normal, not as stuffy and I can taste and smell and I can think about other things except trying to breathe and this is only day 4.

I feel I'm on the right track. Does any one else get a matallic taste in there mouth when they use the cream? It does go away... Thanks.

I don't taste that
by: marg

Do you get dry eyes, it drives me crazy, I use drops for it but I feel much better since I used this. I can sleep better too, and no more racing heart. Did your doctor say how long you can stay on it for? Hope you stay on it and feel better.

I noticed a real difference after a few weeks on progesterone cream, in retrospect now that I have been on it for a few months, I can't believe how much energy I have and what a slug I was in comparison a while ago. I am approaching everything with a new attitude and enthusiasm, I cannot believe the difference. It has treated my perimenopausal symptoms, less irritation, less hemmorhaging during my periods, and almost no clots, which were a problem before as well. My hair, which was falling out by the handful is no longer falling out, and my memory seems to be improving. I feel like I did years and years ago, before all of this hormonal stuff got started. I am still looking forward to other benefits yet to come.

It's a miracle!
by: Aylin

I am Aylin, I am younger than you, 31, but as with you, for my last 3 years I was alone... because of my problems. I suffer from Endometriosis. I had surgery, for nothing all, I tried many pills, for nothing! Till I discovered this Natpro cream. Now I am using it and I am feeling like normal, almost perfect. I can now hope I will have a child and husband one day. You can keep putting this cream on, I am sure it will help you a lot. As with me, for you this cream responded very quickly, in 4 days. Some women need more time. So, you are lucky! Good luck and good health to you!

For Marge
by: diane

Hi Marge, my doctor does not know that I have started on this cream. When I had asked him about all the problems that I was having being hormone related he had no answer for me, no tests were done, and he made no comment on the fact that 2 of my sisters have the same problems at menopause. I have been to a lot of doctors and no one ever gives mention to any of these problems being related to menopause, just give me more drugs that did not work. I did a lot of research, to find my answer and was driven by my last ent checkup to do somthing fast as I was looking at having another surgery. The ent could offer nothing but an operation, there were no sprays pills or anything. As I had an allergy to the sprays (stuffed up my nose worse gave me headachs and made my nose bleed) to live again not being able to taste or smell, and talking funny, to have to eat with my mouth open this was every day. Every morning I awoke to have the same head cold, and a dry tongue.

You would not believe the difference I am having with just 6 days of using the cream. I am getting my life back. Every morning I am getting better I can taste and smell now, first time in years, I'm looking foward to have a good life and I cannot belive all I have to do is apply the cream twice a day I am so thankful. Why do the doctors not know about progesterone cream, or the effects of menopause, why do people have to suffer needless hardship? I will keep you up dated.
