Description: Progesterone is a hormone that's found in both men and women. For women, it is involved in regulating the menstrual cycle and reproductive function. Progesterone is mainly produced and secreted by the ovaries during ovulation. It is also manufactured by the adrenal glands, the brain, and the placenta in pregnant women. Natural progesterone cream is a popular supplement for the treatment of PMS, menopausal symptoms, endometriosis, and several other conditions.

Indications:

  • Autoimmune conditions
  • Endometriosis
  • Fibrocystic breasts
  • Infertility (female)
  • Irregular menses
  • Menopausal symptoms
  • Osteoporosis
  • Ovarian cysts
  • PMS
  • Uterine fibroids

Precautions: Natural progesterone cream has a good safety record. Women with a history of cancer should consult with a doctor before using it. Women using the birth control pill or synthetic progestin should avoid it.

Dosage: The dosage depends on the condition being treated. Menopausal women generally apply a quarter teaspoon (20 mg) to the skin one to two times daily.
