Lupus sufferer

by Dawn

I'm a 40 year old woman who was diagnosed with lupus sle 3 years ago. Once the medication I was put on had started to work, I was relatively symptom free for about 2 years, but the past few months the symptoms are starting to return. My mum has strongly recommended that I use progesterone cream as it worked for her with her osteoporosis. I'm very nervous about trying this as I know that the hormone oestrogen can aggravate my symptoms. I wondered if there is any evidence that progesterone cream could help with my symptoms?

It helps me
by: Anonymous

I was afraid of progesterone, and gave it a try. I was pain free the first night, but it did not last that long for me, it does help. I have not been able to try the NATPRO as they are out of stock. I am interested, but can't get it to try. Sorry. I am using a yam progesterone, and it helps with pain, but I am very interested in Wray's product.

Hi Dawn

Excess estrogen causes so many problems and it would certainly affect one suffering from Lupus. Progesterone is an excellent anti-inflammatory and if used correctly will help you, please read How to use Progesterone Cream. Vitamin D is also vital, it helps with lupus, a deficiency reduces the benefits of progesterone.

If you are going to try progesterone, please read Estrogen Dominance and use a cream which has the correct progesterone concentration. Natpro stock is due in soon.
