I used progesterone on and off for some time during the last couple of years. Started menopause about 10 years ago and was on HRT and sleeping tablets for at least 8 years. I weaned myself off the HRT and started with progesterone and when all my symptoms were gone I stopped everything. I still had terrible insomnia though, woke up every two hours. I was too afraid of using the progesterone because I had read so many different things about it.

Fast forward and a few months ago my insomnia got worse and my menopause symptoms returned. I used bio identical estradiol for vaginal atrophy because I did not want to use the premarin that my dr prescribed. I started with the progesterone cream again, once or twice a week, but every time I used ut, my weight were up about a pound the next morning, that made me even more reluctant to use it. Then I came across this website and saw that Wray told people to INCREASE the dose! so I thought I will try it, my weight went down within a day or two, I am sleeping better and my breasts that were always very lumpy feels soft, probably the first time in my life.
