What is Progesterone?
Progesterone is a hormone that your body makes. It plays an important role in balancing out the effects of estrogen and other hormones. If you have too much estrogen and not enough progesterone, your body may be thrown out of balance. It is common for women who are approaching perimenopause, and even through menopause, to produce smaller amounts of progesterone. Pro-Gest® natural progesterone cream can supplement your body’s own progesterone levels and lead you back to a state of natural balance.
Why it Works:
*These are only SUGGESTED use:
Every woman finds the right balance for herself. We suggest starting with our recommendations and working from there. Pro-Gest is best used during the second half of your menstrual cycle, for the two weeks prior to menstruation. Days 1 (first day of bleeding) -14: do not use Pro-Gest. Days 15 - 21: use ¼ teaspoon twice a day. Days 22-28: use ¼ to ½ teaspoon of Pro-Gest twice a day. The suggested use is based on a 28-day cycle. If your cycle is shorter or longer you may need to adjust the timing of use, earlier or later than day 14, to fit with ovulation. If your period begins early, STOP using the Pro-Gest while you are bleeding. Count the first day of bleeding as day one, and begin the cycle again.
Women in perimenopause (still menstruating, with cycle changes):
Days 1 (first day of bleeding) - 7: do not use Pro-Gest. Days 8-21: use ¼ teaspoon of Pro-Gest twice a day. Days 22-28: use ¼ to ½ teaspoon of Pro-Gest twice a day. If your period begins early, STOP using the Pro-Gest while you are bleeding. Count the first day of bleeding as day one, and begin the cycle again. If your period is late, use the cream for up to 3 weeks (day 28 of your cycle), then take a week off. If your period has not started by the end of the week off, resume use of the cream as described above for days 8-28 or until your period starts. STOP the cream when your period begins. Count the first day of bleeding as day one of your cycle, and begin the cycle over again.
Women in menopause or who are post-menopausal (no longer menstruating):
Choose a calendar day (e.g. first day of the month) as day one. Days 1-7: do not use Pro-Gest. Days 8-30 (or 31): use 1/8 to ¼ teaspoon of Pro-Gest twice a day. If needed, you may use up to ½ teaspoon of Pro-Gest twice a day according to the same schedule.
Pro-Gest cream is intended for external cosmetic use. To apply, just massage a ¼ teaspoon into your skin twice a day. Apply it to your inner arms, inner thighs, abdomen, or chest, rotating the areas where applied. It absorbs quickly through the skin, and you're on your way back to a natural balance. Pro-Gest is best used according to your menstrual status. The following are recommendations that should be confirmed or modified in concert with your health care provider.

*United States Pharmacopoeia (USP) denotes a recognized standard of purity and strength. It is sometimes referred to as "human-identical" or "bio-identical" progesterone, which differentiates it from synthetic progestins or progestogens. USP classifies the progesterone as the highest quality available.
*Our natural progesterone is formulated from a substance found in Mexican wild yams.

wonderful!I first heard about this product in a book called The Wisdom of Menopause by Dr. Christiane Northrup. When nothing else helped, itt has been extremely useful in getting me through to menopause-- especially helps with moods swings ( when nothing else helped my depression, I felt a subtle but noticeable life of the blue feeling I constantly had) and aches and pains. I don't intend to stop using it, ever!
