I'm not sure if I should use progesterone

by anon

Hello my mother is a 50 year old woman and has a fibroid, hashimotos, and adrenal fatigue and is borderline diabetic and she's not sure if she can use progesterone cream and how much to use.... this is the description from her ultrasound:

"A large fundal fibroid is noted measuring 12.1 x 9.3 x 13 cm on the prior study from May 2016, 14.7 x 11.7 x 14.6 cm demonstrating diminished size.

Endometrial stripe on transabdominal evaluation at 4mm.

Right renal length 10.4 cm there is no hydronephrosie, hydroureter, renal. Calculus or concerning lesion.

Left renal length 11.5cm there is no hydronephrosie, hydroureter, renal. Calculus or concerning lesion.

Nabothian cysts.

The left ovary measures a volume of 4 cc with a dominant follicle within.

The right ovary measures 2.7 x 1.4 x 1.7 cm surroundings complex partially tubular multicydtic finding is noted which in part likely represents multiple prominent parametral vessels, but at least one of the dominant tubular findings appears to be avascar and is concerning for hydrosalpinx.

Interphalangeal changes of osteoporosis in the hands."

Please let men know what you think I would really appreciate any help!!!

I'm not sure if I should use progesteorne

I am not sure if this is for you or your mom.

What exactly has your doctor advised as a way forward regards these test results? If the right ovary is a concern, what is being done about it? Her doctor should have explained the results clearly with her.

Fibroids are caused by oxidative stress due to trauma or disease fo some kind. Unless the inflammation is dealt with she will always battle. Potent anti-oxidants are needed as explained on the page. Between 400-500mg of Natpro Progesterone Cream is needed as well. Progesterone is a calming hormone so it will help with adrenals, but is your mom taking salt? This is important and we all need it. I do not mean our common table salt either, that belongs in the trash can. Please view this excellent video.

Thyroid function does slow down during peri-menopause/ menopause, as the excess estrogen we have then suppresses it. Low progesterone levels would not be helping either, as that has a slight stimulatory affect on the thyroid, plus suppressing the estrogen. Low vitamin D3 also causes hypothyroidism, please have a vitamin D3 test done as a deficiency reduces the benefits of progesterone.

Your mom is most definitely a candidate for progesterone therapy provided it is used correctly.

This is for my mother who has a fibroid

Hello sorry for the misunderstanding, this is for my mom and her doctor told her to just change her diet and told her it's nothing to worry about.

So she should use 500 mg of progesterone cream?? Will she need to increase/decrease? And she's already taking vitamin d, c, boron, magnesium, and cytomel for thyroid.

And no she does not take any sea salt but I will tell her to.

Thanks a lot for the reply!! I wasn't sure what to do about her situation since I'm only treating myself with progesterone estrogen dominance so I really appreciate this.

Thanks for clearing that up. I am not quite sure if I agree with the doctor, anything that is not 100% requires attention.

Anyhow let's talk Fibroids. I suggest starting at 400mg Natpro per day every day, if need be increase to 500mg. This is not an overnight fix, it takes time and patience. I am pleased that vit D3, boron and magnesium is being taken but where is the vitamin K2 as mentioned on the page given to you? It is important and many are not aware of it. The protocol mentioned really does need to be followed exactly as stated for Fibroids, as well and taking the vitamin D3 co-factors.

Progesterone if used correctly will help the smaller fibroids absorb back into the body, it's the larger ones that can become more problematic and may require surgery.
