I have visited your website. Very informative and clear. However, I still have one question that concerns me. I am 62 years old and recently I was told that I have osteoporosis and it is quite severe. Now I am not happy with the side effects of the regular medication and am looking to see if it can improve in another way or at least not worsen. Is it wise to start using progestron cream now? I have read in the questions and comments that you can start using the cream when you are in perimenopause and can continue to do so for a long time, but I would only start now. Thank you very much for a reply.
Kind regards, Paula

​Hi Paula Ellen

Of course it's safe to use progesterone ​​at your age. I am nearly 67 and will never stop using it. Progesterone can be used fro​m​ a very early age, it's not a case of having to wait until ​Peri-Menopause. Young girls are put on it at an early age to help with their monthly cycle. Young boys even use it for various reasons.

You are in Menopause and it is very much needed. Progesterone if used correctly helps with Osteoporosis too. Depending on the severity of the symptoms, women should use between 100-200mg per day, men should use between 10-100mg per day. More maybe needed. For more information please see How to use progesterone. Before using progesterone it's essential to first read the page on Estrogen Dominance.

Vitamin D3, Magnesium, Zinc and Vitamin K2 are essential for helping to prevent​​ osteoporosis. They all contribute to helping to build bones.
