Natpro/osteoporosis,etc/ bodylotion

by kate

my health problems - I have in my 39y. heavy osteoporosis -with an hip fracture, ulcerative colitis, allergies and intolerances, hairloss, easily to gain weight, problems with sleeping. I follow paleo diet. I used to use hormonal contraceptive for about 15years and since when I stopped it, my menstrual cyclus become irregular, almost nothing, sometimes 2days in 2month. I need it also for the boneloss. My blood test shows,that I´m not in menopause, but I have either estrogen nor progesteron = on the 22nd day of my cycle:
S-Lut. hormon 4.16 IU/l (0.5-16.9)
- S-FSH 8.75 IU/l (1.5-9.1)
- S-Estriadol 77.1 pmol/l (89-796)
- S-Progesteron 2.49 nmol/l (10.62-89.14)
- S-Kortizol -morning- 448.5 nmol/l (118.6-618)
- S-Parathormon 14.00 pg/ml (14-72)

I want to use Natpro, but I have a few question about is - do I have to slowly increase the amount of the daily cream? /start with only 2x20mg and increases it with 20mg every day until I have 150mg/day?/

And what about to have organic bodylotion after having a shower? Does it disturbe the absorbtion of Natpro? I have very dry skin, so I can´t be without it. Can I put Natpro for ex.after a 30min.after using bodylotion?

And can I put Natpro on every part of my body - I know, I have to change it every time because of the fat-saturation, but can I put it on may breasts also or where I want?
Or what about the sunexposion - can I sunbathing after I use Natpro?

I´ve read nearly the whole page, but I can´t find answers.

Sorry for my English :) and thank You for the answers!

Hi Kate

I am so pleased that you have stopped using contraceptives as all drug based contraceptives have a potential to cause harm – see here. It also explains your irregular cycle as your body is now in a tizz.
Usually Menopause only occurs after missing a monthly period for 12 months. At 39 you are more than likely in Peri-Menopause or close to it when the cycle becomes extremely irregular and difficult to follow. You are also suffering Estrogen Dominance symptoms, probably more so because of the contraceptive you were using.

Your progesterone/estrogen ration is 33:1 it should be 600:1, you must be feeling dreadful. Your hormones need to be balanced out by using progesterone. Please read the Hormone Testing page. Good choice wanting to use Natpro by the way, it is a cream that contains the correct amount of progesterone concentration.

Please whatever you do, do not use anything less than 100mg/3ml per day, starting off on a lower dose and building up as you are wanting to do will cause terrible estrogen dominance symptoms. We usually recommend starting on a higher dose because this eliminates ED symptoms. You can always reduce very slowly once you feel stable enough to do so, but never use less than 100mg/3ml per day. I suggest you start off by using 200mg/6ml per day and once you feel stable you can reduce. You may need to use more cream if your symptoms are severe. Progesterone therapy is not an overnight fix, it can take anything from 2-6 months, possibly longer depending on symptoms before positive results are felt. How to use Progesterone Cream will help you.

Natpro absorbs very well, there are some thicker creams on the market which do not absorb because of this. It spreads very well and can be used on any part of the body, including the breasts, even hair follicles absorb Natpro well. It will not interfere with any other body lotions that you use, but try to use a body lotion that contains no estrogenic properties, use organic cream wherever possible. I personally apply Natpro first, wait about 5 minutes and then apply your other lotions. It absorbs very quickly. It is also an excellent anti-inflammatory, so apply it to any painful are on the body.

Hi Kate

You can certainly use it while sun tanning. For obtaining the full benefit of vitamin D from the sun, It is best to go into sun for 15-20 minutes, depending on skin type, then apply a good sunscreen like Sunumbra. It is organic and has no hidden chemicals which cause harm.

Vitamin D is extremely important, do you know what your level is, as a deficiency reduces the benefits of progesterone, it is also connected to every single cell and its formation in our bodies making it vital. Vitamin D is also vital for Osteoporosis.

Hope this helps.

thank You - two more question
by: Kate

WOW, thank You for the super and long answer!! It is a HUGE HELP - I have nobody that could help with it!!! I have two more questions please - do I have to follow my cycle - so do I have to use 200mg progesterone from the day 14 until the day 26? /if I have some cycle or ovulation/ or do I have to use it each day with a 5days break for a few month and just then follow the cycle and use it only on days 14-26?
And the second question is, that do I have to use this 200mg progesterone /if it fits me/ until I know, that the osteoporosis is better? /I´ll have the next densitometric scan in november/ Or do I have to measure my hormonelevels from blood again after 3month or so and increase-decrease the amount according to that?
Thank You once again!

Hi Kate

It’s sad really, as all too often help is hard to find. If your cycle is regular then use the cream by following your cycle. How to Use Progesterone Cream explains how to do this. If you have adverse symptoms i.e. erratic cycle or anovulation, then the cream should be used every day until things return to normal. Please bear in mind that you are about to enter peri-menopause when progesterone should be used every day.

Experiment with the amount of cream, what suits one, does not necessarily suit another. Please read the page on osteoporosis. Please remember that vitamin D is vital for Osteoporosis. It’s entirely up to you when you want to have tests done, it is always advisable to know what they are. Remember that 3 months might not be enough time to show any improvement, it does take time.
