Progesterone therapy for inflammation for MS

by Julie

I am 49 years old, have had MS since I was 28. I have started a high dose vitamin d therapy for my MS and it is working wonders. I also take vit K and magnesium. I had a hysterectomy at 45 due to endometriosis but my ovaries were left insitu. I have not had my hormone levels tested but I am experiencing trouble sleeping and crying for no particular reason. I gather I am peri-menopausal.

I try not to go to the doctor unless urgent as they always try to entice me to take DMD's, (which I have never taken). I am wanting to incorporate progesterone for helping lower my inflammation, help with neuro repair for the MS and get the bonus of treating peri-menopause symptoms at the same time, (I have had no hot flushes or any other symptoms but I do know that I am early stage osteoporosis from a bone scan prior to commencing high dose vit d). I take no other drugs for MS, just vit D and the co factors and eat a clean dairy, gluten and sugar free diet.

Do you think this progesterone therapy is a good option for me? Thankyou, appreciate your input.

Hi Julie

If you had a hysterectomy then you would be in Menopause even if you still have your ovaries. Please read up on the symptoms, it can be a terrible time for most women. I am pleased that you are taking vitamin D3, magnesium and vitamin K.

If you read the Inflammation page you will see that progesterone does help. Between 100-200mg progesterone, such as Natpro which is organic and is a 3% cream, is needed, more if symptoms are severe. Please read How to use Progesterone Cream and Estrogen Dominance pages. Progesterone and vitamin D3 also helps Osteoporosis.
