Natpro progesterone cream
by: Wray

Hello Kanza, good question. There are many good natural progesterone creams on the market. The key issue is to get good value. This is best determined by taking into account the concentration of progesterone contained in the cream and the price (needless to say the other ingredients are of course important as well).

For example you can find two products each in a 2oz (60 gram) container. One is priced at, say, $30 and the other at $35. The one for $30 is not necessarily the best value as, for example, it may contain 450mg of progesterone whereas the $35 product contains 900mg. So, in this example the apparently cheaper $30 product works out to be 71% more expensive for the progesterone contained!

This is a common mistake many people make. They look at the amount of cream they are getting for their dollars rather than the amount of progesterone. Progesterone creams are expensive so it makes a great deal of sense to ensure you are getting the best value.

My recommendation is Natpro. Its been on the market since 1997, is well proven, used by many medical practitioners and still sells at the same price it did when it came onto the market. You can order it online by clicking the link at the bottom of the left margin that reads 'Progesterone cream'

Where Can I Get Progesterone?
by: Kathleen

I just started taking Progesterone for Migraine prevention. Since I am post-menopausal I have to take 50mg 2 times a day. Pre-menapausal women start taking Progesterone on the 15th day after their cycle starts, to when the cycle ends. I got a source from the doctor who wrote the book "Natural Cure for your Migraine Headache." The source is:

Hope this helps. The book also states that this Progesterone is safe to take.

Hi Kathleen Thanks for the tip. Unfortunately oral progesterone is regarded as the most inefficient way to take progesterone. 80-90% is destroyed as it passes through the gut and the liver. It also puts a strain on the liver which has to metabolise it, so in effect only 10-20% is available for absorption. This is one of the reasons the synthetic progestins were developed.

There are published papers proving transdermal creams are as effective as injections. The one advantage of the cream is it's benefit to the skin, no need for expensive skin care preparations, as a study has been done on how it reduces wrinkles around the eyes etc. Take care Wray
