PSA on the rise

by John

My PSA on 1/31/2017 was 7.7. I started on Source Naturals progesterone cream twice a day on 2/15/2017. I got my shipment of Natpro about 10 days ago and started that twice a day until this past Friday, 3/3/2017 and got my PSA retested. It is now 9.1.

I've been taking 15,000 D3 iu for about three months and DIM since 2/1/2017.

Question: would the progesterone cream cause my PSA to rise initially?

PSA on the rise
by: Joy

Hi John

There could be a number of reasons for a rise in PSA levels. Your body is still adjusting to progesterone therapy, or you are not use enough Natpro, how much are you using? An infection could also be the reason, have you had an infection recently? Richard Ablin, the man who discovered PSA says "As I have been trying to make clear for many years now, P.S.A. testing can't detect prostate cancer and, more important, it can't distinguish between the two types of prostate cancer - the one that will kill you and the one that will not. Infections, over-the-counter drugs like ibuprofen, and benign swelling of the prostate can all elevate a man's P.S.A. levels, but none of these factors signals cancer." I am sure that stress could raise levels too. Calcium D-glucarate is far better in reducing excess estrogen than DIM.

A Vitamin D3 deficiency could also be a cause, if low it reduces the benefits of progesterone. Although you have been taking 15 000iu's for 3 months, what exactly is your level?

PSA on the rise

Joy, Thank you so much for your comments. I order my own tests so I will get my D3 level checked soon. Getting in to see a urologist where I live takes two months and then the first thing they want to do is a biopsy it seems.

I am administering the Natpro progesterone cream about 1/4 teaspoon twice a day anally. I started taking the DIM thinking it was the best thing to boost my system, but I can order Calcium D-glucarate and will do so. I also take

Thank you again.

Natpro side effects

I've been on Natpro for nearly two weeks and am having dizziness with chills. Is this something to be expected?

Natpro side effects?
by: John

I've been on Natpro for nearly two weeks and woke up this morning dizzy (that continues now through mid-day) and poor balance. I am also having chills. This is very unusual for me. Is this something to be expected?
