Natural progesterone cream

Posted , 6 users are following.

So after some  recommendations from a few of you lovely ladies I’ve started with the natural progesterone cream for heavy bleeding/clots. How long should  it take to start regulating my periods?

    How much are you taking? 

    When I had my three week period it seemed to taper a few days after starting the progesterone. I’ve been taking it all month, just got a smattering of a spotting today, hardly anything , 34 days from last period. Sure had a rough month and bad pms and cramping, but still no period.  

    Seems to make sense to take progesterone. Hope it works for you!

    Give it some time, my bottle recommends taking more then it lists if your symptoms are severe. I’d look it up to see.

      I’ve only been having a ‘pump’ amount per day and only started last weekend, I’m a lot lighter this week but don’t know if it’s the cream or I’ve finally calmed down after 2 months!!

      I think it’s working!! My period slowed down to just spotting after a few days (after 2 months of a very heavy & clotting period). I came on a few days early this month but it’s been very light, almost nothing but I couldn’t completely trust it. I’m starting the cream again (as per instructions) fingers crossed it’s  working! I’m also so much more like my normal self, not many mood swings and hardly any brain fog but that could be down to other vitamins I’m taking x

      That's great news Hayley!! I'm still using mine as well, my period never came and no spotting. Progesterone is the first thing that goes missing in peri. 

      So whatever is working, vitamins, progesterone, who cares? Just keep doing what's working!

      Hi Joanne 

      I’m in week 2 of progesterone pill and estradiol cream ... not noticed much improvement however can I ask how do you know you’re intolerant of the progesterone ? 

      I’m sick of going to drs just feel like stopping it all and let my hormones adjust naturally . It’s all such a guessing game

      Oh dear! 

      That's the exact progesterone they've just given me... utrogestran! 😬

      I've tried norethisterone and levonorgestrel already... I haven't taken the utrogestran yet as I've just tatted on a new regime this week so hot 2 weeks weeks of oestrogen only  (patches) first... 

      Wish me luck!! 🙏🏻🤞🏻😖

      Hope you get sorted soon... keep me posted?

      I paid private and they look at my history symptoms ,I went into early menopause he ask how I was when I was pregnant I said awful and on the previous combined pill as soon as I started the progesterone mid cycle all symptoms started , irritable low mood anxious ache pain, once I stop for the menstration I was ok I thought just pmt it wasn’t till now at age 54 I had to go on continuous hrt daily progesterone I realised this was the case , so all those symptoms I had daily , one reason now under consultant I have had spotting for over year had scan biopsy all ok but can’t have that every other week , so I have try 4 different types . I was on tibolene fir 2 years and fine symptom wise , aoart from I was bleeding and still having hot flush so they felt not strong enough but a great hrt If it suit you . So now on oestrogen patch testogel feel fab but you have to have progesterone for healthy womb but I am awaiting scan 23rd see thickness womb and we will go from there . Xxkeep younposted

      I'm currently using progesterall, it's a natural progesterone. Got it on line. But here in the states we can also get natural progesterone cream at the pharmacy.

      Well I always read that you only need progesterone to protect the lining of your uterus. But it seems like your body would still need it even if you've had a hysterectomy. Because if you still have your ovaries and they are still producing estrogen, wouldn't you become estrogen dominant without any progesterone? And estrogen dominance can cause all kinds of nasty things. I'll never understand it. Seems like you would need both.

      Hi Joanne 

      Wondered how the testerone is working for you and what it actually does? 

      I took it years ago and it bloated me up so I stopped. I’m on the HRT patch right now but I’ll take anything to feel normal again . Glad you’re feeling well!
