Lower back ache.

by Natalia


I've just upped my prog to 200mg since I was getting lots of increased estrogenic su otimscat lower dose. Since upping, things have got better but I've now developed terrible lower back ache

Is this because progesterone relaxes the ligaments? It is agony... How do I proceed? Lower my dose? Ride it out. Is it normal - will it go? Thanks.

​Hi Natalia

Usually between 100-200mg is needed using a 3% cream such as Natpro, often more is needed in the beginning. It all depends on symptoms and how severe they are. We are all different, we need to experiment to see what works for us.

A few have complained about lower back pain which could be Estrogen Dominance and your body needs to adjust to progesterone therapy which usually takes 2-6 months, longer if symptoms are severe. Or you could be suffering from Endometriosis, have you been tested for this?

Please don't lower the amount that you are using, give it some time, if things have not improved then increase until you find a level that suits you. Once the adverse symptoms ease​​ and you feel stable, then slowly reduce the amount of cream use.

Please make sure that your Vitamin D3 level is optimal as a deficiency reduces the benefits of progesterone and is connected to every single functioning cell in our bodies.
