PCOS and Natural Progesterone
I was diagnozed with PCOS over 10 years ago and feel like I've done tons of research since. I was so glad when I stumbled across this web site!
Five years ago I lost 50lbs and noticed I started having menstrual cycles every month like clock work... I was amazed. However, 3 years ago I began taking birth control pills in November 2007 (I had recently divorced and began dating someone). I absolutely can not stand birth control but I wanted to be protected so against my better judgement I took it. After 2 years of taking the pill and recently turning 30 I decided to stop birth control in November of 2009. At first things didn't seem to bad... that quickly changed. My cycles were not regular (around 43-48 days) for several months and then they stopped back in July of 2010. I started to notice once my cycles stopped that I gained about 10 lbs and it felt like it was all in my belly and upper thigh area. I also noticed the excessive hair growth was back, UGH!! I'm still not what one would consider over weight 5ft 7 inches and 157-160 lbs but I have been experiencing all the unwanted symptoms from PCOS since my cycles stopped.
When I saw this web site I was glad to read this is organic. I know from having this syndrome that while it's somewhat inherited the environment and wonderful american diet (sarcasm) so many of us eat contributes to the hormonal imbalance. I just ordered 2 tubes of your cream around the week of Thanksgiving and received my shipment last Monday or Tuesday. I have been using the cream twice a day (applying vaginally since reading that can sometimes be one of the best ways for the progesterone to get into my blood stream) and to my surprise I started a cycle today... I was in total shock! I told all my girls at work and today we did a cheer in celebration of my cycle, LOL!
For anyone who is considering this cream definitely go for it! I have struggled with this syndrome since I was 22 (longer than that really since it took a few years for a diagnosis) so I am looking forward to the progressive benefits from using this cream!
I do however have a question now that I've started my cycle... Do I continue using it daily? I'm just not sure since I've gone from having no cycle the last 159 days to now starting one today? Any information you can provide would be greatly appreciated and thanks so much for offering such a quality product at a reasonable price!! PCOS is almost an embarassing syndrome but I hope with the use of the cream I can start feeling and looking better!
