How to take progesterone during perimenopause

by Sandra

Hi, I'll be 51 in September, and have been dealing with erratic periods for about 10 years, with it getting worse every year. Now I can go almost 3 months with no period and then bleed for 3 weeks. With or without breast tenderness. I have been on prog. creme for roughly 10 yrs. I understand that once it becomes erratic there's no way to balance it.

So my question is, how much should I be taking every day since I can't really base the results on feeling better, (I don't really feel bad) or my periods becoming balanced again?!

I look forward to hearing from you soon...

Thank you!

Hi Sandra

Sadly there is nothing that can help the erratic periods during Peri-Menopause but the correct use of a good progesterone cream such at Natpro will help ease things a little and prepare you for Menopause. A missed period for 12 months puts one in menopause. Between 100-200mg per day is needed. Split the amount, half in the morning and the other half at night. You will have to experiment to see what suits you, more may be needed.

Vitamin D3 is very important as a deficiency reduces the benefits of progesterone, optimal range is between 70-100ng/mL. Nothing less than 5,000iu's is needed daily. Co-factors are needed when taking D3, magnesium and vitamin K2 with no soy are the important ones.
