Progesterone returned my body to a healthy cycle following chemo.
Hi My name is Maz and this is my second story to add to this wonderful site regarding progesterone.
After having used Progesterone Cream for nearly 8 weeks now, today was an amazing day for me. Let me fill you in on the past so you can understand fully why I am so happy.
After having been diagnosed with Breast Cancer, I have gone through 6 months of chemotherapy as a precautionary treatment which was advised by my oncologist and then followed up with 8 weeks of radium (see my other story re progesterone and healing radiation burns at...
https://www.progesteronetherapy.com/progesterone-healed-my-radiation-burns-in-days.html) to then be advised that I need to take Tamoxifen for the next 5 years. The idea of Tamoxifen is to block all oestregen hormones which is what my cancer was receptive to.
Many subjects were discussed with the Oncologist and one of the topics was about hormones and Tamoxifen. I was informed that a large percentage of breast cancer patients are advised to take either Tamoxifen or Arimidex or Femara following treatment to give us the best chance, well at least 5 years, and I was no different to the normal. The treatment of Tamoxifen is to block the oestregon hormones as these are the ones that cells are attracted to and then become cancer. Only I decided that I personally was not going to pursue the Tamoxifen path for a number of reasons. This was not advisable by the Oncologists as research says yadaa... yadaa.. yadaa.
Anyway, after being advised that my chemo treatment has taken me into post menopause and that it was highly unlikely for me to return to menstration, and that I should start the course of Tamoxifen for the next 5 years, but if my cycle did return and highly unlikely considering my age, but there was a small percentage that I might, it would possibly take about 2 years... And then I woke up today, just 10 weeks since I stopped chemo to start my monthly cycle again!!!!
You can imagine how I must have felt, (well those that have gone throught breast cancer and chemo would understand) but I was told that this is highly unlikely because of my age (48) and because of the chemo.
So today, feeling on a high, and knowing that because I have been using the Progesterone Cream (which balances your hormones) my body is recovering from the 9 months of treatments of chemo and radium to having returned to a normal hormone level where I once again menstruate. This to me is a huge sign that my hormones are balancing and my body is recovering well and that my body is now in a great position to fight off any "c" cells in the future.
I have done a lot of research regarding progesterone and understand that Progesterone is the "mother" of all hormones and helps to balance all other hormones which in turn means your body is much healthier and able to fight Dis-ease more readily.
I am truly ecstatic that my cycle has returned although my friends cannot quite understand that because, as women, if we could all get rid of them for good, we would.
I have emailed many other breast cancer survivors to see if they too have experienced the same and as yet no one has been able to share in my happiness.
This I truly believe is a remarkable product and I will be using this for the rest of my life and I will encourage my girls to start doing the same.
Thank you so much as I believe Progesterone Cream, will and has, saved my life.
