I have a 8mm uterine polyp, started at 1cm and I did some holistic things to help reduce the size. Will progesterone help, how long does it take to shrink a polyp like mine, I want to conceive but I don’t want to do surgery. Are there side effects ? Thanks in advance!

Hi Mish

Polyps and Fibroids respond to progesterone therapy extremely well, see here. In the case of fibroids, progesterone helps the body to absorb smaller fibroids, sadly larger ones require surgery. Using a good organic cream such as Natpro which is a 3.33% cream, 200mg progesterone per day is needed, more if severe. The How to use Progesterone Cream to page has more information on the correct use of progesterone. Use half the amount in the morning and the other half at night. This will help to keep progesterone levels stable at all times. Insert some of the night time dose in your vagina at night. Progesterone is an excellent anti-inflammatory and will help with inflammation as well as dryness. Please also read the Estrogen Dominance page as you may experience some of the symptoms mentioned when using it for the first time. There are no side effects from natural progesterone. Often people blame progesterone for what they think are side effects. This is one of many Progesterone Misconceptions. When progesterone is not used correctly and/or not enough progesterone is being used, it will aggravate estrogen receptors which people think is progesterone side effects. If progesterone is used correctly it will work.

I suggest you use every day with no breaks until you find relief regarding the polyps. When you are happy and your cycle has returned to normal, use the cream by following your cycle i.e. luteal phase. If you are wanting to conceive might like to read the Pregnancy page

Please make sure that your Vitamin D3 level is optimal, a deficiency reduces the benefits of progesterone and is vital for every living cell in our bodies. It is also extremely vital for an unborn child.
