New at this and a little scared. Need reassurance & advice on use
I just purchased this Natpro progesterone cream and therefore, I don't have it yet, but after reading some of these stories I have become a bit apprehensive over using it. I don't actually fit into any of the 4 categories that are given from pre-menstrual to menopausal. I am 66 years old and post-menopausal. I seldom get a hot flash anymore and when I do, it is quite mild compared to the fiery ones that I used to get. I had a partial hysterectomy at age 42 and went on HRT for 5 years at age 58 for severe hot flashes which it did relieve. I am recovering from major surgery from last August (they said 9 months recovery for removal of a large hernia and 4 feet of my intestines).
Over the last few months since the surgery, I have been waking up with morning sweats (not night sweats). I get leg cramps too and I started taking magnesium for that. I am losing my memory and suffer from a lot of stress and anxiety. I have had an iron and vitamin D3 deficiencies which I am now taking supplements for. Over the past few months, I have also lost so much hair that I am now practically bald.
So, I am also taking many supplements for that and my other problems including Viviscal, Hair Volume, Keratin Booster plus Biotin, Iodine, CoQ10, vitamin C, B complex, D3, calcium, magnesium, enzymes, turmeric, Saw Palmetto, flax seed oil, borage oil, fish oil with DHA, evening primrose oil, etc.,etc.,etc. I read several articles now saying that I need pregnenolone, so yesterday, I bought some of that too (30 mg ad day in pill form). I saw this page on progesterone cream and I thought, well why not? So, I purchased that too. My medicine cabinet is so full of supplements that I have trouble keeping the door shut. Anyway, is this cream safe to use along with what I am already taking and how about my age? I have been looking for answers to my age category (post-menopausal). Thanks in advance for your advice and or encouragement.
