Uterine polyps

by Marie
(London, UK)

Hi, I'm 43 and I have been diagnosed with a 2cm uterine polyp (benign) after years of extremely heavy bleeding, clots etc. They tried to remove it at hysteroscopy, but couldn't as it was too large and have suggested another surgery to remove it. I'm keen to avoid surgery if possible and would like to try progesterone or any other natural ways to shrink and remove the polyp. I'm wary of trying progesterone as I have EDS and progesterone pill has worsened laxity in the past, but willing to try low dose
Is progesterone likely to help me? Any other suggestions?

HI Marie

Fibroids and polyps have been discussed in depth on this forum. If you use the search bar you will find many discussions on it. It's important that you deal with the Inflammation. Progesterone will definitely help if used correctly and if the polyps are not too big. Progesterone helps the body to absorb smaller ones, larger ones do require surgery unfortunately. Any form of oral progesterone is not the best Delivery Method as around 96% gets destroyed by the but and liver, see here.

EDS (connective tissue) Progesterone is linked through collagen or connective tissue (EDS) and results from the weakening of cell membranes. The hormone estrogen accelerates the aging of collagen, the connective tissue of which our body is made, thereby making the cell membrane weaker. Hormone imbalances induced by environmental poisons especially the 'xenoestrogens' play a significant role in aggravating the problem. Oral progesterone would aggravate this.

You are also in Peri-Menopause is can be a torrid time. Such a pity that progesterone wasn't used years ago, it would have helped with your heavy bleeding.

Your polyp/s are large, it would be your choice whether you would like to give natural progesterone a chance. It would not be an overnight fix. I suggest using 200mg per day every day with no breaks using a good quality organic cream such as Natpro which is a 3% cream and was formulated over 30 years ago.

Should you decide to try progesterone please read the How to use Progesterone Cream and Estrogen Dominance pages. Use 200mg per day every day with no breaks, half the amount in the morning, the other half at night. Never use progesterone once a day as this causes levels to spike.

Vitamin D3 is vital. A deficiency reduces the benefits of progesterone, levels should be optimal at all times. It is also connected to every single functioning cell in our bodies making it so important.
