No more migraines.
I have dealt with hormone related migraines for almost 20 years. I am 45 and still have a regular period. I have known that my migraines were hormone related because they mainly happened when I was ovulating or about to start my period. I have repeatedly asked my medical doctors if there wasn't something that could be done but was told time and again the only relief they could give me was expensive prescription medicine, which would work for a little while but inevitably lost their effectiveness.
About two months ago, I came across this website when I searched for "hormone-related migraines" on the internet. That day I went to a healthfood store and bought some progesterone cream and I haven't had a migraine since. It is truly a miracle to me. And while that is the biggest relief to me, many other symptoms (which I did not even relate to this) have eased or disappeared altogether including dry skin, losing hair, low libido, depression, heavy bleeding, anxiety, etc.
I think I must have been experiencing extreme estrogen dominance which was only increasing with my age. My only question is this: Because of my age, is it really necessary to stop using the cream for one week out of the month? I have done that over the last two months but I notice that some of the symptoms I listed above return temporarily until I start back on the cream.
I have now started using Natpro instead of the cream I bought locally and like it even more, probably because of the higher levels of progesterone in Natpro.
I would really like to just use the cream daily without the gap during the month. Will I be doing myself any harm?
