magnesium / progesterone cream

by t

Hi, does magnesium increase oestrogen or cause flooding?
I had a very heavy period last month, also I want to try progesterone cream as I am getting period pain. I have a history of ovarian cysts / endometriosis / oestrogen dominance, I am worried this is going to exacerbate things?

magnesium / progesterone cream

Hi t

I have never heard of magnesium causing flooding or having an affect of estrogen.

Should your heavy bleeding continue you might consider following this protocol which has helped so many women.

* 400-500mg Natpro Progesterone Cream per day
* 2000mg N-Acetyl-Cysteine (NAC) per day
* 2000mg Taurine per day
* 5000iu's Vitamin D per day - more if deficient
* 1000mg Bioflavanoids per day

Progesterone will help you if used correctly. Please read the following pages. Estrogen Dominance, How to use Progesterone Cream, Cysts and Endometriosis.

Progesterone therapy does take time, it is not an overnight fix and can take 2-6 months.

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.

Hello Joy & thank you
Tonight I used natragest 1/4 tsp over my abodomen for period pain & it seemed to help. I am just a little worried that using the cream is going to make things worse before it makes them better, does this always occur or not? I have a history of endo / ovarian cysts, why does using too little progesterone make things worse?

I use castor oil & eat almonds, this seems to help but I would really like to get to the root of the imbalance. I think in my case it's all the stress I give myself by thinking "Do I have a cyst or don't I?", as I have period pain & I am oestrogen dominant.

Just for your info I also have a history of gut parasites. I tried DIM 3 cycles ago & it bought oestrogen / progesterone down too low; the following month I had no period; the month after this I was o.k; the last month I flooded, as mentioned above.

I will use what I have left of this product then try your product.

Hi t

Progesterone therapy is a life long commitment, once you stop using it, symptoms will return. Things can get worse before they get better, as mentioned, it does take time. Your body needs to adjust to progesterone which is why it can take 2-6 months before things improve. Progesterone can be used anytime that you feel pain. It will not help your symptoms if you just use it randomly, continual use is needed.

Using anything less than 100mg per day will aggravate estrogen receptors and many estrogen dominance symptoms become worse. Usually between 100-200mg is needed, but as you have endo you will need to use more. The amount used can always be reduced slowly to a level that suits you but never less than 100mg.

Stress can reduce the benefits of progesterone and vitamin D3
