Progesterone is a hormone that is produced mainly by a womans ovaries.The placenta produces 300 - 400mg of progesterone levels daily during the last few months of pregnancy.Progesterone is what makes you glow during pregnancy.Most women are oestrogen dominant due to progesterone deficiency. Progesterone restores the balance between the female hormones and eliminates the symptoms of oestrogen dominance.

- Estrogen dominance may become worse when 1st beginning natural progesterone cream; such as breast tenderness and swelling, spotting, fluid retention, dizziness, hot flashes, fatigue, headaches and nausea. This happens because the estrogen receptor sites ‘wake up’ (are stimulated). This is a sign that the body is responding well to the progesterone.
- Stress affects progesterone levels, because stress increases cortisol levels. Cortisol competes for progesterone receptors.
Apply in the morning and evening. (An application is effective for 8-12 hours.) Apply larger doses of 2 to 5 mls for the initial 3 months to detox the xeno oestrogens. Then reduce the dosage as per symptoms and for maintenance.During maintenance ensure a 7 day break period after your menstrual cycle.
The best places to apply are where the capillaries are dense and close to the surface of the skin, such as: face, neck, breasts, inner arms, wrists, palms of hands and feet. Avoid applying to the fat areas of the body, because fat will store the progesterone, rather than allow it to move into the bloodstream. Rotate where you apply the cream to avoid saturation.
A 1-time overdose of progesterone cream is virtually impossible. (During the last trimester of pregnancy, the placenta is producing 300-400mg of progesterone a day.) Even if you used a whole bottle in a day, it may just make you feel very sleepy.
