Progesterone stopped my peri-menopausal flooding, acne, and other symptoms of imbalance.
by Kristen S.
After having regular menstrual cycles my whole life, I skipped my period for about 90 days 3 months after I turned 45.
I also started having severe acne, consisting of small hard bumps all over my face and neck and painful, swollen cysts on my jaw, chin, and chest.
When I started my period again, it lasted about 4 weeks and was chunky with pink tissue pieces. It became irregular and heavy from there. In between, discharge was thin, watery, with a strange vinegary odor, and frequent spotting. I also had urinary frequency. No infection found by Dr.
About 9 months after all this began, I started a period that did not stop for 6 weeks. There was a week in there of very heavy flooding with large clots (filling up a diva cup every hour). Of course the docs recommend birth control pills and/or total hysterectomy- No thank you!!
Thank God for this site. I started 500mg daily of progesterone cream divided in 2 doses am and pm. The flooding stopped immediately. I continued to bleed and spot off and on, but now 2 months later, no bleeding and my skin is as smooth as a baby's behind. Discharge is now normal, no smell, and no urinary urgency.
I should also note, I have suffered 2x monthly migraines since about age 36 that are now gone. I am working on slowly reducing progesterone cream dose. I also am taking supplements as suggested on this site, Calcium D, DIM, NAC, Vitamin D, iodine, multi vits and minerals.
I feel like a normal person again!
Please try it if you are suffering like I was!!
