working for me.....

by Peg

Using Natpro has helped. Alot. I use it three times a day, If I don't, I bleed, and cramp. I had vaginal ablation in May, These periods are better, but still very crampy. I wrote this Poem one night in one of my PMS/PMDD moods. It sums me and alot of others in the same boat. The Natpro Has helped alot of these... :)

Hot flashes
Cold sweats
Screaming Loud Hissy fits.
The shits
These are just a few that fit.
Make you think you’re crazy
Husbands think you’re lazy.
Sex? Who cares if you ever get it again
But! Husbands you are still our men!
Let us rant and let us rave. After a while, it will be you we crave… be patient, loving and please don’t give up. Don’t file for divorce , move out or blow up. We love you dearly, we want you too. Just can’t seem to find US…. Let alone you.
Peri- menopause , and menopause sucks to the max. Instead of eating that apple Eve should have picked up an ax… We hate snakes it true, Satan, get thee behind me and you. Save my marriage oh Lord I pray. Make it holy night and day. Send my husband back to me, and help me get on with my dignity.

working for me.....
by: Wray

Hi Peg What an amazing poem! You are right it does sum it all up, the emotional and physical side of it too. The misery of it all, and yet none of this need be. I loved your humorous line 'Instead of eating that apple Eve should have picked up an ax…', so clever! I hope life treats you gently from now on. You've raised a family, looked after grandchildren, it's now time for yourself. Buy yourself flowers, small treats, do things you've never done before but always wanted to. Take care of yourself, Wray

I truly believe I still have that "feel good" in me
by: Shirley

Yep. I truly feel that I am capable of really feeling good every day. I have come so far. I am 63 and menopause was the worst thing I ever went through. I was diagnosed (finally) with sleep apnea that probably has been with me since a child hence the lifelong battle with insufficient/restful sleep. Due to years of stress with obstructive sleep apnea the oxidative stress must have been through the ceiling. My hormones throughout the endocrine system in awray. Finally succombed to taking a low dose of BP medicine and that has helped my sleep and reduced a good deal of cortisol. Now to get rid of the heavy headed feeling. Yes that dreaded head fog and feeling of having a film over my eyes. I still have all my original parts and have never had a miscarriage, pcos or infertility problems. Guess my question is can I take progesterone (sans E1,E2 or testosterone) to help with my remaining problem. Thyroid tests show nothing alarming. I just know there is a better me just under the surface waiting for me to find out how to give it birth. Taking 100mg. progesterone orally now for about two weeks (from compounding pharmacy). Will order cream as it seems wiser to put it on several times a day rather than one big hit at night. So if there are any comments on the merits of my thinking or otherwise I welcome the guidance and wisdom.

Hi Shirley It sounds as if you've had low Progesterone and Vitamin D since childhood. They can both help with sleep, see here and here. And for progesterone see here, here and here. Excess oestrogen stimulates glutamate, our most excitatory neurotransmitter, see here. It increases free radicals, plus destroying beta-endorphin neurons in the brain, these produce endorphins which promote a feeling of well being and relaxation. Whereas progesterone protects against glutamate toxicity, it also increases BDNF (brain-derived neuroptrophic factor) in itself protective, see here and here. If glutamate is too high, it allows calcium, an excitatory mineral, to enter the cells. Progesterone also protects against calcium induced excitotoxicity, see here. It appears calcium adversely affects sleep, see here, here and here. Magnesium opposes the actions of calcium as it relaxes. It's also the most important co-factor for vitamin D. There is some evidence progesterone could help apnea, see here. Interestingly men with sleep apnea have a greater risk of erectile dysfunction, see here. Progesterone reduces erectile dysfunction, see here.

I truly believe I still have that "feel good" in me Part 2
by: Wray

Hi Shirley It appears vitamin D is low in sleep apnea, see here, here, here and here. Please have a test done for vitamin D. Oral progesterone is the least effective Delivery system, "The liver and gut region removed a mean of 96 per cent of the progesterone entering these tissues", see here. But oddly enough it can sometimes help with sleep. My preference is for a cream, and between 100-200mg/day, although more is often required. We do have a page on Menopause you could look through. Progesterone definitely lifted my brain fog, I hope it lifts yours too. Take care Wray
