waiting to try Progesterone

by Carol Ferguson
(Covington GA USA)

Starting at the age of 13 I started my cycle and migraines began too. At age 30 I had a particle hysterectomy due to endometriosis and then a the last ovary out at age 45. Ever since age 13 I have had migraines and then seizures started. I was put on hormone patches Estridiol which does not seem to be helping with all the symptoms I am having.

I have ordered the cream in hopes this will be the answers to my symptoms/problems. Hot flashes the worst, migraines, weight gain which I cannot lose, depression, insomnia, fatigue, cry for no reason, and on and on.

I pray this will help, and my story will help others. I will update to let everyone know how it works for me.

I think your story touches a lot of people who go through that too. I’m sure you have done this already but just in case you haven’t it’s good to read up on all the info on this website about how to use the progesterone. I know it takes time to build it up, some longer than others.

I did not have anything near what you have been dealing with and it did take several months to finally cut down the estrogen dominance. When I felt I was having a flare up of estrogen I increased the progesterone and kept on it everyday even though cycles. If you feel the progesterone is making it worse you simply need more, do not get discouraged.

Also if you can do a Dutch urine test to see how you are methylating your hormones that would be most helpful to you.

Good luck to you.

Hi Carol

The hysterectomy would have put you into Menopause. I don't believe that any women needs to take extra estrogen as there are well over 100 estrogen mimics in our environment as it is and it certainly does not seem to have helped you.

Hot flushes usually require between 400-500mg of Natpro Progesterone Cream for 4-6 days or until then clear, then reduce very slowly and find an amount that will suit you, you will have to experiment with this. Weight gain and fatigue could also mean Insulin Resistance, have you been tested for that and have you had your thyroid tested?

There is a definite connection between hormones and Migraines, progesterone if used correctly will help you.

Do you know what you Vitamin D3 level is? A deficiency reduces the benefits of progesterone, optimal levels of between 70-100ng/mL is needed. Co-factors, Magnesium and Vitamin K2 in particular.

Please read these pages as they will help you to understand how to use progesterone correctly and what is needed.
