Menopause no relief on 600 Per day

by Linda
(Colorado )

Can someone please help? I’m not sure if I’m on the right path. Read your whole page several times. I’m 51 in full menopause for 4 years. Used pellets, Troches prometrium and other tools to help with my menopausal symptoms. Nothing helped or made it worse. Haven’t used anything for a year but can’t take it anymore so on Natpro now. 600 per day, 300 am and 300 pm. And I don’t see big changes. Still hot flashes. Still night sweats. I’m on the 11th day. I’m afraid to Up even more.

What am I doing wrong?? Am on 10000 vitamin D per day also, the airless dispenser is what I use and goes real fast with 600 per day. Ugh. Wray can you please shed some light on this?

Hormone panel?
by: Dawn

Hi, Linda,
I know it can take a few months for our bodies to adjust. Have you had a hormone panel done to see where your estrogen levels are? I know that's usually the first thing drs. throw at us and I'm sure you already know that the progesterone can at first make our estrogen spike. Everyone is different though.

I'm 52 and have been using progesterone for 4 years but I'm also using testosterone, DIM, and sometimes Arimistane to lower my estrogen and CBD for hot flashes. It's insane what we have to do to find some relief.

I hope you can get relief soon.

Thank you Dawn
Helps to know I’m not alone. Both my od gym and regular doc say no blood test needed. Just go by how you feel. Are you on 600 as well? Still?? Thanks again.

Menopause no relief on 600 Per day

Hi Linda

You body needs time to adjust to progesterone therapy, it can take 2-6 months before things improve. You may need to use more than 600mg to help with your Hot Flashes. Once the flashes clear, you can slowly reduce the amount of progesterone to an amount that suits you. We are all different, for some women it takes longer than others. Patience is needed when starting with progesterone therapy.

If you have not done so, please read the How to use Progesterone Cream, Menopause and Estrogen Dominance pages.
