post menopausal use

by Sarah
(Georgia, USA)

I decided to try some progesterone drops recently. I am a 54 year old postmenopausal woman, whose last period was in Dec. 2012. I try to eat healthy and exercise regularly, including varying my workouts. I do struggle with my weight, though I have more muscle mass than flab. I am concerned about the estrogenic influences in the environment, so I though progesterone would help me. About a week after taking the drops, I started bleeding again. Because I have Von Willebrand's disease, a bleeding disorder, I bled a good deal and had to take my bleeding medicine. I stopped the progesterone and after several days I stopped bleeding. It was very disconcerting. i noticed on other posts that you don't recommend the drops. What would you recommend I do? Thanks so much.

Hi Sarah

Any form of oral progesterone is not the best delivery method as 96% gets destroyed by the gut and liver – see here. It is best to use a progesterone cream which has the correct progesterone concentration.

Most medical doctors like to prescribe estrogen and a progestin to stop menstrual bleeding, we do not believe this as no woman needs to take extra estrogen as there is over 100 estrogen mimics in our environment as it is, see Our Stolen Future. Progestin prescribe is a synthetic progesterone, which again causes adverse symptoms. Progesterone is much safer to use, but the choice is yours. If you are going to use progesterone, you would have to get over the initial Estrogen Dominance symptoms before you start to feel the effects.

As you suffer from Von Willebrand’s disease, I suggest that you try this Heavy Bleeding protocol:

*Natpro Progesterone Cream - 400mg to 500mg/per day * N-Acetyl-Cysteine (NAC) - 2000mg/per day * Taurine - 2000mg/per day * Vitamin D - 5000iu's/per day more if vitamin D level is low * Bioflavanoids - 1000mg/per day

Hope this helps.
