Natpro 400 mg


I am Lu, 42 years old. I have been in Natpro for 40 days today. I first started with 100 mg/day and slowly I went up to 400mg. I started Natpro due to estrogen dominance symptoms, especially the anxiety.

When I first started it I suffered a lot with estrogen dominance symptoms : breast tenderness, mood swings, anxiety, water retention, brain foggy, dizziness... now, 40 days later I am doing much better, but I still have strong PMS with anxiety, insomnia and breast tenderness.. I have been using 400 mg for the last 10 days.

My question is : For how long can I use 400 mg? Is there any concern to be on this dose for 2/3 cycles? Since I still have some symptoms of estrogen dominance, should I stay in this dose (400 mg) or should I go up?

Thanks a lot for your support. Natpro changed my life, and only now I figure out that I have been “estrogen dominance “ through my life.

Natpro 400mg

Hi there. As mentioned on the website, progesterone therapy is not an overnight fix, it can take 2-6 months before the body adjusts. So many women use 400mg progesterone and have done for years, some even have to use more to help them with Estrogen Dominance symptoms. As you still have symptoms, I suggest that you continue using 400mg Natpro until you feel stable enough to reduce. Reducing should be done slowly. Reduce by 25mg and stay on that amount for 7 days, then reduce by another and so on. Never use less than 100mg, you will have to experiment to see what amounts suits you. Tender breasts could be that you are deficient in iodine. As progesterone is an excellent anti-inflammatory, try rubbing some Natpro on your breasts and I suggest that you have your thyroid tested. You are also in Peri-Menopause. You might like to read the Anxiety page.

Vitamin D3 is very important. 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.
