I'm 42 and female. I have had heavy painful periods for 20 years - no children, 5'5" 188 lbs.
I was always told to take 'ibuprofen' or birth contol for cramps... I don't do well on birth control so I dealt with the heavy periods and painful cramps my entire adult life.
Nov-Dec 2008 I had a period/constant bleeding heavy/lite for 2 months. Terrible stomach distention... weight gain and very depressed... gained 15 lbs in 2 months.
The OBGYN said 'could' be peri-menopause symptoms and recommended 'mirena' iud... after a painful biopsy and research on mirena I chose to research natural relief.
December 2008 I received my first order of Natpro, no exaggeration, I felt relief the 1st day.
I have also always had very rough heels (feet) within 1.5 weeks, I 'randomly' noticed how 'soft' my heels had become! I mean I had deep, painful, hard core cracks... overall my skin feels great... and that was never the reason for using Natpro.
My period is now back on track, hot flashes mild, distended gut only happens when I eat the wrong food (e.g. wheat etc. allergies). I'm working out and have actually lost 5 lbs.
I love this progesterone treatment... it really works... thank God! Most importantly my mental health/anxiety is back in the 'manageable' catergory.
By the way, I apply the cream 2x a day on my stomach.
