Would NatPro be the answer for my problems?

by Misty H.

Wray, I am hoping that you can offer me some advice as to whether or not you believe your NatPro would work in my situation.

My cycles have always been very regular, varying from 23 to 26 days. All of a sudden, I missed a month and thought it to be strange, but thought I may have been more stressed than I realized due to it being during the holiday season. The next time I was due to cycle, nothing again. I knew the chances of my being pregnant again was very small, but I took a pregnancy test when I was 8 weeks late. The home test came out negative.

I began to worry about why all of a sudden I was not cycling since I've always been so regular. 3 more weeks past, making it a total of 11 weeks since my last cycle, and then I finally started. It was a moderate to heavy cycle, with many clots of various sizes, (which I figured should be expected since I missed a total of 3 cycles.) This cycle lasted for close to 3 weeks, followed by a week of light spotting. Then immediately following the light spotting, I began another regular period for 6 days (which was my usual cycle length). However, I am still spotting a week after this last cycle.

I am 44 years old and in really good health other than what is currently going on. For the last year or two, I began experiencing some of the pre-menopausal characteristics and knew it was near the time that they would be occurring. When I missed those three cycles and began to experience this prolonged bleeding, I asked a couple of ladies I know, who actually went through menopause, and they said they believe my ovaries just "shut down," making me in full peri-menopause. Since this time, I have had many of the other symptoms take place. (Now I feel old. lol).

Anyhow, I began applying some 6% wild yam cream my husband bought for me, but it doesn't seem to be doing what I need for it to do. It seems to be making me spot heavier and I've been passing a lot of small clots.
So I began doing some online researching and came across your website. I have been reading everything on here and am very interested in your NatPro product.

Does it sound like NatPro could be beneficial to someone like me? I've been reading your recommendations for using this cream and how to control prolonged bleeding, so I really do hope it could help me. Thank you for your wonderful website assisting so many women with their hormonal imbalances! Sincerely.

P.S. I apologize for the lengthy letter, but I wanted to be as thorough as I could be in describing my problem.

Hi Misty No need to apologise, the more info I have the better! And thanks for the kind words too. You do appear to be in Peri-menopause, but your ovaries haven't shut down. They are slowing down, causing you to have anovulatory cycles. They only shut down once in Menopause. This occurs on average at age 51, and it's best to wait a full year of no periods to realise it. Progesterone actually starts dropping from about age 35, when we start having anovulatory cycles. These increase until menopause, when the ovaries stop producing viable eggs. The clotting and spotting, plus sometimes flooding, are all the charms peri-menopause offers us! No amount of progesterone will regulate the cycle again, so I recommend using it daily, as it's impossible to follow the cycle. Periods will come and go at will, much as they are doing now with you. But progesterone will make life more bearable, it certainly did for me. I recommend 100-200mg/day, used a minimum of twice a day. It should never be used as a fixed daily amount, but as and when needed. Hourly if symptoms are severe. So yes I do believe you do need progesterone, your symptoms certainly warrant it. The start up phase can be bumpy, so please read our page on Oestrogen Dominance before considering it. A yam cream won't help, it's progesterone you need. The body cannot convert the plant sterol into progesterone, it can only use our endogenous cholesterol to make it. Take care Wray
