Natural Progesterone changed my life

When I turned 50 I started getting the typical menopause symptoms, the worst being weight gain and water retention in my ankles. My ankles were so swollen and unrecognizable and I had to start wearing larger sized shoes.

I had also gained weight even though I was eating less and working out strenuously every single day of the week.

I also noticed hair loss, luckily I have a ton of hair so it was not very noticable, except to me. This was when I started to do an internet search on natural remedies for menopause. Having read enough about HRT, I did not want to go down that path because of possible deadly side effects.

I found out about Natural Progesterone cream and ordered some from Vitacost and started using it that very week. Needless to say, it was the cure all for the awful symptoms I had been experiencing.

Within a month my ankles had become slim and trim again, thank God I can wear my stilletos and ballet flats again with confidence.

I've lost weight and actually feel the energy being used in my body when I work out, whereas before I was sluggish and could just feel that my body was not burning fuel efficiently anymore.

And my hair is growing back, I have a halo of new hair all over my head that I am babying back into longhaired health.

No more night sweats, general anxiety, and insomnia either. This stuff works and I feel 10 years younger. Yay for Natural Progesterone! That's my story and I'm stickin to it.

Natural Progesterone changed my life

Hi there Thanks for sharing your story, it is wonderful what it can do, as my life changed when I started it. It's such a good diuretic and anti-inflammatory, it's now given via IV transfusion to brain trauma victims, to prevent the oedema and inflammation that occurs. It does help hair growth too, as evidenced by the wonderful hair women have when pregnant. Please spread the word! Take care Wray

Hi, I started taking natural progesterone about 2 weeks ago. I haven't noticed any changes yet to fluctuating body temperature, weight gain, swollen ankles etc. I'm encouraged by what you've said about it making a big difference. How long did it take to 'kick in'? Thanks.

Hi Francesca It can take 3 to 6 months before it can help, particularly if the typically recommended 20-40mg/day is being used. I recommend 100-200mg/day, but if you are experiencing hot flushes, 400mg/day is needed for a few days before these are under control. Then the amount is reduced slowly. I'm not sure how old you are, but please see these two pages we have on Peri-menopause and Menopause for more info. If you are using the low amount, and wish to increase, please read our page on Oestrogen Dominance first, as this can occur. Take care Wray
