Using Natpro with no break

by Kristin

Wray, I am the one who a couple of months ago wrote the post entitled 'Help'. I wanted to let you know that Natpro has helped me so much!

From the first day I used the cream my moods were more even, the anger was gone, and I just felt much better. I do have a couple of questions though. I just finshed my third month using 200mg 1/2tsp in the morning and 1/2 tsp at night days 14-28. As soon as I stop the cream for ovulation everything comes back and when I start using the cream again at day 14 I have extreme estrogen dominance for a few days until I start to feel more balanced.

I am wondering if it would be ok to use the cream continously for a couple of months without taking a break in order to "get over" my symptoms more quickly. I have always ovulated regularly and had a regular period. Would I have a period if I did this and would it hurt me to not?

Another thing that has not gone away at all is my hair breakage. I am not losing my hair, it just breaks off in sections. I really want it to stop as it's been doing this for about a year now and just looks horrible. Is this something that will just take longer to stop and do you think it would help if I used the cream without a break each month?

Also, if we decide to have another baby, how would I use the cream? I have heard that stopping the cream can cause a miscarriage, so how do you use it when pregnant? Maybe you could just give me a couple of links to read.

Thank you so much for all you are doing to help us women, you have no idea how much better I feel already and I am looking forward to it only getting better the longer I use it!

Using Natpro with no break

Hi Kristin I remember your query, but how wonderful it's helped so soon! Thank you for trusting me about using a high amount. Yes you can use it continuously, I often recommend that if symptoms are severe. It will probably upset your cycle though, if you're happy with this then go ahead. If not you will have to use more cream to get over those few days. It is easy enough to get the cycle regular again, by only using the cream from ovulation, but could take a cycle or two to settle down. There is a third alternative, and that's to use a small amount of cream, maybe 1/4 to 1/2tsp in the follicular phase, then increase after ovulation. Using too much before ovulation stops this. I wish I could be more precise but it's your body and you know best how it works. And we do have info on pregnancy please see our Conception and Pregnancy web page. You are right, stopping the progesterone too sharply can cause a miscarriage. Finally you need the amino acid N-acetyl cysteine for your hair. It's remarkable at making hair, skin and nails strong and healthy. You will probably need about 2000mg/day. A high dose but I take this every day, it really is remarkable, I have to have my hair cut every three weeks now! There's no question progesterone helps too, as many women will testify how lovely theirs is when pregnant. Please keep in touch when you have the time. Take care Wray
