Headache and Migraine

by Anita

Hi,I am 48 years old woman and have been suffering from headaches and migraine attacks for about 8 years.
My periods stopped 6 months ago, although three weeks ago they reappeared for a two week period. Before my periods stopped I had a lot of heavy bleeding due to the lining of my uterus being too thick.
I'm happy my periods have stopped but unfortunately have not found any help for the daily headaches and weekly migraine attacks, therefore I want to try Natpro for that.
In your migraine article you advice 100-200mg Natpro daily as a preventative and 400-500mg once a migraine has started.
In another article you advice the cream to be taken twice a day to be effective. Does this mean that I will double the amount (2x100-200mg/day) or does it mean that I will have to divide the amount into two separate takings (2x50-100mg/day)? Also, if I apply my first dose say 9am, when would I apply the second dose?
Thank you very much!

Hi Anita The 100-200mg/day is the total daily amount, so this would be divided by however many times you use it. Some women use it hourly, some only twice a day, it's up to the individual. If you have migraines I would suggest starting on the higher amount, i.e. 400mg/day, you might need more. The problem is progesterone stimulates oestrogen initially, so this can make matters worse, see Oestrogen Dominance. For any severe symptom such as migraines, asthma or panic attacks etc I would always suggest using the high amount. Too little causes symptoms to worsen. You will have to judge for yourself how many times you use it. Always apply it under your ears, all over your neck and face if you feel one starting. I suggest keeping a tube near you at all times too. If you have a thickened lining, you could bleed when you start the progesterone. It's nothing to worry about, it's just the remainder of the unshed blood coming away, so there could be clots too. Let me know how you get on. Take care Wray
