Progesterone and 60

by Cheryl
(Manhattan, Ks USA)

I am 60 and don't have any symptoms of menopause any more. I have used natural progesterone for almost 10 years.

If I forget to use it in the morning, I have no symptoms, but I try to always use progesterone daily for my bones. I have had some nasty falls and have not broken any bones. I have never been very graceful; hence I trip over things! I also put 1/8th tsp of borax in my coffee every morning, which tells my parathyroid to keep the Ca++ in my bones.

Is there anyone else in their 60's, or beyond, that uses progesterone on here?

Yes is the answer. I am in my late sixties and use around 300mg, sometimes more, sometimes less, daily. I think it is very helpful for joint health and certainly for hot flashes, which I used to get in my early sixties of all things, and for moods and supporting the thyroid and adrenals I believe. The list goes on. Each woman is different. It is an individual choice as to what you need and how much. Listen to your body.

Hi Cheryl

Many women 60 and older use progesterone. Progesterone does play a part in helping to build healthy bones as it stimulates the osteoblasts which deposit new bone. Nutrients also play a big part especially vitamin D3, magnesium and vitamin K2. Without these calcium is not deposited in bones. Taking large quantities of calcium will not improve bone density. Please read The Vitamin D Council for more information and see here. You might also like to read the page on Osteoporosis.

LOVE my progesterone!

I am 60 and still on Progesterone prescribed my naturopath. I started 25 years ago trying to get and stay pregnant but was too low and would miscarry until I started taking prog. I take 300mg at night
and sleep like a princess. I have tried cutting down to 200mg but wake up all through the night so I think I'm best at 300mg but wonder if at 60 it's ok. I feel better and sleep better so I'm happy!

Hi Happy Momma

Thank you for sharing your story with us and I am delighted that you have benefited by using progesterone. You actually beat me, I have been using Natpro progesterone cream for nearly 19 years now, I am 67 and will NEVER stop using it even if I live to be 100!!

My only suggestion is that progesterone should be used no less than twice a day, morning and again at night. This helps progesterone levels to remain stable. Levels start to drop after 12 hours.

Best wishes.
