Severe Menstrual Blood Loss Stopped by Natpro
I am 53 years old and have been having VERY heavy periods for approximately 12-15 years. Approximately 7 months ago, I ended up in the emergency room because I was having yet another heavy cycle and had reached the point where I could hardly stand up because I was so weak. I barely managed to avoid a blood transfusion because I was so anemic. They did an ultrasound and said there wasn't a thing wrong with me except that my hormones were out of whack. If I bent over, I nearly passed out and I could continually hear my heartbeat in my ears whether I was in bed or sitting or standing. I suffered from severe shortness of breath and heart palpitations because I was so anemic. I could barely stand long enough to do a few dishes and I could hardly function in my daily life.
I had been given one dose of synthetic hormones which just delayed the inevitable heavy cycle a week or so. I was very leary of using the synthetic hormone and began to search the internet for a possible natural solution.
When I found the Natpro, I was so hopeful that it could solve my problems. I began using it and it immediately improved my outlook and my ability to sleep. However, I was so very 'estrogen dominant' that I knew it was going to take a good while before my heavy cycles would get turned around. When I would have a heavy cycle, I increased the use of Natpro from twice daily to 5-6 times daily. I also used a DIM supplement twice daily for the last 7 months (DIM helps absorb excess estrogen and move it out of your body). To slow down the out-of-control bleeding, I used liquid cayenne in water and it did help.
I have seen such an improvement over the last 7 months - I no longer have cycles too close together and when I do have one, it is what I would call normal! In fact, my periods are getting farther apart and I hope they will stop altogether in the near future (menopause). I am still having to supplement with a plant-source iron because the anemia was such a problem. I haven't had to use the Natpro at the elevated dose of 5-6 times daily during my cycle for several months BECAUSE MY CYCLE HAS BEEN NORMAL! I just use it every day in the morning and before bed. I will use this cream until the day I die - it just makes sense to keep using the hormone that we are deficient in.
I would like to extend this testimony as a ray of hope for women who, like myself, have no pathology but have severe bleeding during their cycle because of excess estrogen. If you have known the terror of the huge clots and gushes of blood in the shower and toilet and the embarassment of having to ask your friends and family if the back of your clothes are alright, take it from me, it may take a while, but just stick with it - your body will eventually reach a saturation level with the progesterone and things will start to turn around.
I appreciate the high quality and the high mg dosage of this cream - thanks for helping me get my life back!
