Bioidentical Progesterone Q&A

By definition, the term bioidentical means life-identical—that is, hormones identical to those found in life (in this case, human). Literally then, bioi­dentical hormone replacement includes all human-identical hormones, not just compounded hormone products Bioidentical progesterone  is not adverse to your body, can be bought without a physicians prescription,  is the most effective hormone balancing supplement you can use.

Hot Flashes, Sweats, Mood Swings, Insomnia

For women entering menopause, natural progesterone cream with phytoestrogens helps the decreasing supplies of progesterone which cause hormonal imbalances, producing hot flashes, mood swings, urinary incontinence, hair loss, vaginal dryness, poor concentration, uterine fibroids and an overall decline in health. By combining phytoestrogens and progesterone it offers the benefits of phytoestrogens which will help replenish your estrogen as it declines and the progesterone will restore the balance as both estrogen and progesterone decline during this time.

"I feel as though I have been given my life back, I have been using your natural progesterone cream for almost 5 months now and can say it has changed my life..." Christy - Dallas, TX


Fibroids, Pmdd, Endometriosis, PCOS & Hormonal Imbalance

Pre-Menopausal Women benefit from natural progesterone cream which can help balance the symptoms often associated with uterine fibroids, endometriosis and bring relief from irritability, bloating, water retention, weight gain and pelvic pain and excess bleeding.

"I started using your progesterone cream for severe pms and  fibroids two months ago, what a difference, i feel like i have been given myself back. It was so frustrating to feel so out of control with my emotions and I can already feel that my fibroids are shrinking and my excess bleeding has stopped."

Thank you.

Bioidentical Progesterone Cream Is Not Just For Menopause

For many women, natural progesterone cream provides significant relief, with no reported adverse findings from usage by women for over 20 years. It is known that transdermal application allows for easier and greater absorbtion. Oral medication or supplements the health and state of the colon and liver can compromise its effectiveness. Natural progesterone cream provides a efficient way to help your body through the simple skin application helping  supply what is deficient in your body.

Studies indicate that
Natural progesterone cream Shrinks fibroids, curbs hot flashes and hormonal imbalances associated with menopause and the absence or decline in progesterone. In 1999 trials at St. Luke's Hospital in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, bioidentical progesterone reduced or eliminated hot flashes in 83 percent of the healthy postmenopausal women tested. Other clinical trials have shown significant reduction in uterine fibroids, weight loss, a reversal of premenstrual dysphoric disorder and endometriosis to be not only significantly improved but reversed with the use of bioidentical progesterone.

Bioidentical Progesterone

Over the years, numerous scientific papers have used the word “proges­terone” as a catchall term that included synthetic progesterone analogs as well as progesterone. This misrepresentation of progesterone created confusion for both researchers and clinicians, as it suggested synthetic progesterone analogs like medroxyprogesterone acetate had the same effect on progesterone receptors as progesterone. There are clinical scenarios that strongly suggest otherwise. For example, medroxyprogesterone acetate is considered a teratogen and is contraindicated in the first 4 months of pregnancy. In contrast, progesterone vaginal supposito­ries are often used in the first trimester to sustain pregnancy. Clearly, the 2 molecules have very different effects in childbearing women and could reasonably be expected to have other differences. Unfortunately, they were considered sufficiently equivalent for medroxyprogesterone acetate to be widely recommended as hormone replacement in perimenopausal and postmenopausal women. Eventually, problems with medroxyprogesterone acetate were exposed in these populations by the extensive 1991 trial and observational study initiated by the WHI/ (Women’s Health Institute), partic­ularly in the areas of cardiovascular health and hormone-related cancers. The active participation in the trial was prematurely ended after it was determined that the synthetic hormone analogs were causing women to present with higher levels. The observational side of women that received synthetic hormones continued through 2010.  Link for more information

 What is the difference between bio identical progesterone and progestin’s which are prescribed by a pharmacy ?

Bioidentical Progesterone has the identical chemical structure to the substance made in a woman's body. This is to be distinguished from synthetic "progesterone-like" chemicals called "progestin’s", these are totally synthetic and not natural to a woman's body. These progestin's bind to the body's progesterone receptors and function only partially like progesterone. Because they are chemically different than natural progesterone/bioidentical they have side effects and actions that are different, very different than progesterone. Progestin's were originally developed because they were capable of being absorbed into the blood when ingested in pill form, whereas bioidentical progesterone itself was not orally absorbed.

In contrast to some of the progestin's such as medroxyprogesterone acetate (Provera®, Cycrin®) natural progesterone does not suppress good cholesterol (HDL), has no negative effect on blood pressure or mood, and shows no tendency to cause increased male-hormone-like effects such as facial hair growth.

Bioidentical Progesterone & Menopause

Progesterone is naturally secreted by the ovary in the second two weeks of the menstrual cycle in reproductive age ovulating women.  In women approaching mid life or entering pre menopause the ovaries begin to reduce their production and the adrenals located above the kidneys return to a more active state as they once had during adolescence.

Menopause, also referred to as the "Change of Life" is the point at which a woman stops ovulating and menstruation ceases. This indicates the end of fertility. Once a woman stops ovulating, the hormones progesterone and estrogen are greatly no longer produced by her ovaries. Estrogen is commonly thought of as a sex hormone strictly tied to reproduction. However, it also acts on many different organs in the body. Cells in the vagina, breasts, bladder, skin, arteries, bones, heart, brain, and liver all contain estrogen receptors. They require this hormone to stimulate these receptors for normal cell function. Progesterone is needed to keep the skin smooth and moist, our hormones operating properly, and the arteries unclogged. Progesterone is also necessary for proper bone formation.

The menopausal period is different for each individual woman. Some women start earlier and some later but the average age at menopause is approximately fifty years of age. This transition usually lasts up to five years. When a woman has a hysterectomy but keeps at least one of her ovaries, she will stop menstruating after surgery, but she will still go through menopause.

Many woman experience short-term or acute symptoms such as hot flashes, night sweats, fatigue, mood swings, anxiety, headaches, dizziness, depression, bladder problems, poor libido, vaginal dryness and itching, burning and discomfort during sexual intercourse, breast tenderness, dryness and aging of the skin, shortness of breath, insomnia, and heart. These symptoms are all due to estrogen dominance and progesterone deficiency.

Bioidentical Progesterone & Endometriosis

As estrogen initiates endometrial cell proliferation and the formation of blood vessel accumulation in the endometrium, the aim of treatment is to block this monthly estrogen stimulus to the aberrant endometrial islets. Study findings showed that progesterone stops further proliferation of endometrial cells and is considered the most favorable treatment.  

We advise women to use bioidentical progesterone cream from day 6 of the cycle to day 26 each month, using one ounce of the cream per week for three weeks, stopping just before their expected periods. Over time (four to six months), the monthly pains gradually subside as monthly bleeding in these islets becomes less, and healing of the inflammatory sites occurs. This treatment does require patience but is worth the wait considering the alternative. The monthly discomfort may take time to disappear entirely. Since the alternatives are not all that successful and laden with undesirable consequences and side effects, this technique is surely worth giving a trial.

Bioidentical Progesterone and Premenstrual (PMS)

Premenstrual syndrome (PMS) is a disorder that affects many women during the one to two weeks before menstruation begins. Symptoms can include any or all of the following: acne, abdominal bloating, breast swelling and tenderness, backache, anxiety, cramps, depression, fatigue, fainting spells, food cravings, headaches, joint pain, nervousness, insomnia, skin eruptions, water retention, and personality changes such as drastic mood swings, outbursts of anger, violence, and thoughts of suicide.

One of the causes of PMS is hormonal imbalance – excessive levels of estrogen and inadequate levels of progesterone. Hormonal fluctuations lead to fluid retention, which affects circulation, reducing the amount of oxygen reaching the uterus, ovaries, and brain.

Bioidentical Progesterone and Depression

When our hormones are out of balance, our whole body is affected. Frequently, a woman on hormone replacement therapy is estrogen dominant and progesterone deficient. When our progesterone levels are in balance, excess estrogen is managed. As stated below, the effects of estrogen in comparison to those of progesterone differ when dealing with depression. Most women notice a leveling off of their emotions when they get their progesterone levels up to where they should be especially, if they have been a victim of estrogen dominance. Many women actually report a feeling of well-being or euphoria. Thus, it has been dubbed "the happy hormone."

Bioidentical Progesterone and Hot Flashes

Hot flashes usually begin when periods are still regular or are just starting to fluctuate. Hot flashes are often one of the first indications that menopause is approaching. Hot flashes are most uncomfortable in the first stages of perimenopause, gradually decreasing in frequency and intensity as the body adapts to the hormonal changes.

Duration, frequency, and intensity of hot flashes differ. Episodes may last for two to three minutes or they can also linger for up to an hour. They can occur several times a day or night, or only once or twice a week.

As harmless as the hot flash is, nevertheless the body’s temperature control system vacillates between very hot and cool, other body systems are strained as well. When flashes occur too often they may be accompanied by unexpected and even frightening side effects: loss of sleep, fatigue, weakness, dizziness, a racing pulse, heart palpitations, headaches, itchy skin, and numbness in the hands and arms. These symptoms can take you unaware and cause concern as thoughts of more serious causes race through your mind.

Hot flashes are not a sign of estrogen deficiency, per se, but are due to heightened hypothalamic activity (vasomotor lability) secondary to low levels of estrogen and progesterone which, if raised, would produce a negative feedback effect to the pituitary and hypothalamus. Estrogen receptors in these areas become more sensitive, and hot flashes usually subside, once progesterone levels are raised. Measuring FSH and LH levels before and after adequate progesterone supplementation, will validate this mechanism.

Bioidentical Progesterone and Migraines

A migraine is a vascular headache that involves the excessive dilation or contraction of the brain’s blood vessels. Common and classic are the two types of migraines. Slowly, the common migraine produces a throbbing pain that may last for two to seventy-two hours. Often centered at the temple or behind one ear, the pain is severe. Alternatively it can begin at the back of the head and spreads to one entire side of the head (the word "migraine" comes from the Greek hemikrania, which means "half a skull"). Nausea, vomiting, blurred vision, and tingling and numbness in the limbs that can last up to eighteen hours usually accompany a migraine.

One factor behind higher incidence of migraines in women may be fluctuations in the level of the hormone estrogen. Around the time of menstruation, when there is hormonal imbalance, women typically get migraines. Any number of things can trigger a migraine in a susceptible individual including allergies, stress, constipation, too much or too little sleep, liver malfunction, emotional changes, sun glare, hormonal changes, flashing lights, lack of exercise, and changes in barometric pressure. Dr. John Lee states that low blood sugar is frequently associated with migraines and studies have shown that blood sugar levels are low during a migraine attack and the lower the blood sugar level, the more severe the headache. Dental problems may also be a factor.

Transdermal application of topical progesterone immediately at the onset of a headache, has successfully aborted significant numbers of migraines. A suggested amount is up to 1 teaspoon of progesterone cream. This simple and often effective treatment is worth trying with most female migraine sufferers.

Migraine headaches that occur with regularity in women only at premenstrual times are most likely due to estrogen dominance. Estrogen causes dilation of blood vessels, and thus contributes to the cause(s) of migraines. Dr. John Lee states that one of the many virtues of natural progesterone is that it helps restore normal vascular tone, counteracting the blood vessel dilation that causes the headache. He states that once again, progesterone is safe and treats the cause in a normal, physiologic way. The more dangerous pharmaceutical drugs can be reserved for the rare case that does not respond completely to progesterone.

Bioidentical Progesterone and Osteoporosis

Many medical authorities tell female patients who are post-menopausal that osteoporosis is inevitable. A physician in Mill Valley, California, John R Lee, has proven that this often repeated statement is simply untrue. The result of his ongoing clinical study with 68 women is noteworthy. All have experienced new bone density ranging from 5 to 40 percent for women who have used natural progesterone cream from 6 to 48 months. His results also indicated this therapy is successful even several decades after menopause. One of his patients, who is 82 years of age and has been using natural progesterone cream for four years, has a greater than 40 percent new bone density as proven dualphoton absorptiometry Dr. Lee has proven that osteoporosis is not only preventable, but is also reversible in most cases.

Bioidentical Progesterone and Estrogen Dominance

The body makes estrogens because it needs estrogens. Estrogens are responsible for the sexual development and puberty in girls. Also for the body fat content, strength of bones and heart in women. Estrogens in balance are a good thing. Estrogen dominance is not. Progesterone opposes estrogens creating the proper hormonal balance. This balance is very important because when progesterone is too low, estrogens go unopposed or dominate. Unopposed estrogens are the only known cause of endometrial cancer. All evidence has shown that Estriol is the safe estrogen to use, may be protective against breast cancer and has been the choice in Europe for decades over the synthetic "conjugated estrogen" (from pregnant mare's urine i.e. Premarin®, Prempro®, Premphase®, Prempac®) that is known to contribute to breast cancer.

Progesterone-The Hormone-Its historical uses 

Progesterone is naturally secreted by the ovary in the second two weeks of the menstrual cycle in reproductive age ovulating women. Progesterone or progesterone-like substances called progestogens or progestin’s are also ingested by women in birth control pills, menopausal hormone replacement therapy, or just sometimes to induce a menstrual period or regulate abnormal bleeding problems if menses are skipping or bleeding is irregular or prolonged. Progesterone has been used also as therapy for PMS syndrome and for women with infertility or frequent pregnancy loss.

Progesterone and its vital role in a woman’s body

Progesterone is a steroid hormone made by the corpus luteum of the ovary at ovulation, and in smaller amounts by the adrenal glands. Progesterone is manufactured in the body from the steroid hormone pregnenolone, and is a precursor to most of the other steroid hormones, including cortisol, androstenedione, the estrogens and testosterone.

In a normally cycling female, the corpus luteum produces 20 to 30 mg of progesterone daily during the luteal phase of the menstrual cycle.

Frequently Asked Questions on Natural Progesterone Cream


How does bioidentical progesterone help with PMS?

Many of the symptoms of PMS are consistent with estrogen dominance due to relative progesterone deficiency, which can be corrected by progesterone supplementation.

How does bioidentical  progesterone help peri-menopausal symptoms?

In the ten to fifteen years before menopause, many women regularly have anovulatory cycles in which they make enough estrogen to create menstruation, but they don't make any progesterone, thus setting the stage for estrogen dominance. Using progesterone cream during anovulatory months can help prevent the symptoms of PMS.

We now know that PMS can occur despite normal progesterone levels when stress is present. Stress increases cortisol production; cortisol blockades (or competes for) progesterone receptors. Additional progesterone is required to overcome this blockade, and stress management is important.

How does bioidentical  progesterone help post-menopausal symptoms?

Essentially, no progesterone is made by the ovaries after menopause. Progesterone has many important roles in maintaining good health. Estrogen is still being produced by conversion of androstenedione in body fat. This is often sufficient when progesterone is added.

How long does it take to re-balance the body to eliminate unwanted vaginal dryness when using bioidentical  progesterone?

For vaginal dryness and mucosal atrophy to return to normal conditions three to four (3-4) months of natural progesterone use. If you are using a phyto-estrogen relief is obtained within 2 weeks.

Will bioidentical progesterone eliminate unwanted facial hair?

When progesterone is deficient, an alternative DHEA pathway is called upon to take up the slack. This leads to increased androgen production, which is the cause of the unwanted facial hair. Upon replacement of natural progesterone, facial hair will in time disappear or decrease.

Is progesterone therapy really effective in helping endometriosis, ovarian cysts, osteoporosis, depression, and even cancer?

There is much evidence that women suffer from reduced levels of progesterone. Keeping progesterone levels to optimum levels can help fight depression and anxiety, increase sexual libido, prevent bone loss (osteoporosis), fight aging skin, wrinkles and brown spots, help oxygenation of cells, alleviate sleeplessness, control acne, reduce premenstrual discomforts, protect against breast fibroids, reduce hair thinning, reduce hot flashes and risk of cancer.

Will bioidentical progesterone cream help my emotions?

Most women notice a leveling off of their emotions when they get their progesterone levels up to where they should be, especially if they have been a victim of estrogen dominance. Some women actually report a feeling of well-being or euphoria. Thus, it has been dubbed "the happy hormone".

Use of Progesterone Cream


When to start your bioidentical progesterone cream

  • Menstruating Women: Apply once or twice a day as needed, starting on the 12th day after the first day of menstrual flow thru the 28th day.

  • Menopausal or Post-Menopausal Women: Apply progesterone cream twice a day for a maximum of 25 consecutive days. Resume after a five-day break. After you have received significant relief you can and should see if your body can do as well with one application a day.

When should I expect to see results

We have found that women usually notice changes within days. Topical delivery when it is micronized and wraped in a liposome allows your body to start correcting the imbalance almost immediately. Some women who have had months and years of discomfort may take a few months to receive all the benefits. If you don't feel the benefits, you shouldn’t give up. Make sure you have a good supplier and ask them why you don't feel much better or try another brand that has a good reputation by checking it out on "Alexa", where women rate their satisfaction.

How much you should use

Always look for a progesterone cream that gives you 20 mg and start out using this once a day. I know this is hard to determine with a product in a jar so try to obtain a cream that you have some idea how much you’re getting. Twenty milligrams is what is recommended when it is a USP Progesterone if you take more than this for and extended period of time make sure you are having testing to confirm you’re not taking too much. A reputable company that sells progesterone cream will also offer testing. Generally no money is made off the testing by the company, rather the lab that it is sent to.

Where to rub your progesterone

We recommend that you rotate the areas you apply progesterone cream, to avoid saturating any one area. It is best absorbed where the skin is relatively thin and well supplied with capillary blood flow, such as the upper chest, breasts and inner thighs or inner arms. If you’re facial skin has been rapidly aging and you are willing to try a period of time to see what results you can obtain revitalizing your appearance women have long reported that their skin has improved in both appearance and firmness. Simply use this as a facial cream every other day alternating with other body areas. 

The best time to apply it

Apply first thing in the morning do not put on skin that already has deodorant or other skin creams. Some women who are showing many signs of deficiency choose to apply it twice a day until their symptoms reduce and they feel more balanced and then begin apply once a day. Remember that ideal progesterone will have an easy way to calculate the amount you’re actually using. Premeasured containers or dispensing is always the best choice otherwise your really guessing and every time you open that jar and dip what ever it is in your contaminating the remaining product lessening your changes of consistent results

When to apply cream if your periods are irregular

Whether your problem is menstrual cramping, irregular periods, PMS, or other symptoms of estrogen dominance and progesterone deficiency, the basic idea is to supplement progesterone during the time your body would normally produce progesterone, which is between day 12 and 26 counting from the onset of bleeding. However, low dosage of progesterone (below 10 mg of progesterone or 1/8 tsp. of the cream per day) used during the week preceding ovulation is beneficial to the body. It can reduce the risk of ovarian cancer, ovarian cysts, and endometriosis.

When to take a break

Menstruating women should take a break from once their menstrual period starts until day 12. Menopausal women should use it daily for 21 days and take a 7 day break and resume.

When to use less  progesterone

Once your symptoms are less you may reduce the amount of natural progesterone you use. Some women find that they may actually can stop using it as it may balance their hormones.

How to know if you should be using more progesterone

If you are using the natural progesterone cream once daily and you are still experiencing symptoms you may add an evening dose.

What to do when you start applying  progesterone cream and feel awful

There are women who have reported that after starting to use natural progesterone, symptoms increased over the first couple of weeks but then went away. In the beginning, progesterone may stimulate estrogen receptor sites temporally. A phytoestrogen cream or progesterone cream with phytoestogens is helpful during this time.

Buying bioidenticalProgesterone Cream


How to know if you're using a reliable, high quality cream

When you have been experiencing deficient progesterone symptoms for more than 1 year you are going to need at least 1 month to ascertain the positive changes you are feeling attributed to the progesterone cream used. Because of the numerous positive changes having sufficient progesterone in your body will produce you would need a compendium to categorize all the helpful benefits and therefore know that the progesterone cream you are using is a quality cream.

Where do you buy bioidentical progesterone?

It is important to have a trusted source for progesterone cream that is certified to contain what it says so look for it to say USP. Look for a company that provides information on how to use it and will answer questions that you might have. Although it is not the most important factor, look at the product and see if it looks like something made by a reputable company that has a airtight container and is not a jar that you stick your fingers into. If you can take the time then research who makes the product. There are very few labs in the United States set up to produce progesterone cream that are certified labs and have to abide by FDA standards. Cheapest is not always the best, don't be so concerned about price that you miss the bigger picture; reliable results from a reputable company.


How to approach your doctor for a prescription

Natural progesterone cream does not require a prescription. Pharmaceutical companies can only patent drugs that are man made. Naturally occurring substances cannot be patented. This is a reality that has caused not just women but all creatures to fall pray to pharmaceutical companies

Additional Questions on Natural Progesterone Cream


The difference between a wild yam cream and a bioidentical progesterone cream

A component of yam (diosgenin) was, at one time, thought to be converted in the body to progesterone but that has been proven to be unsubstantiated. In fact, while it has certain health benefits, there are no published studies that would allow one to conclude that Mexican Wild Yam will increase progesterone levels in humans or animals. Only supplemental natural progesterone has been demonstrated to increase serum and saliva progesterone levels in women, a fact that is verified by ample clinical and published scientific research.

Why your bioidentical progesterone cream may not be working for you

The most obvious answer to this is that it is poor quality. If you having been using your progesterone cream as recommended for more than 30 days and you have no improvement in your symptoms this would be highly unusual.

What drugs are not compatible with bioidentical progesterone supplementation (or contraindicated)

There are no reports of any significant side effects or health problems associated with natural progesterone. However, the Physician's Desk Reference has a long list of side effects and contraindications for what is commonly referred to as progesterone, but which are really synthetics.

How bioidentical progesterone interacts with anti-depressant drugs or thyroid medication

Because natural progesterone most often has a normalizing effect on a sluggish thyroid, the use of thyroid medication may over-stimulate the thyroid gland. Consult your health care professional if you are taking prescription thyroid medication. There have been no side effects associated with progesterone cream and anti-depressant use, however, keep in mind progesterone cream can help with depressive symptoms that are often associated with estrogen dominance and hormonal balance and once these problems have been addressed you may return to your "old self".

Why is bioidentical progesterone superior to synthetic progestin’s?

Progestin’s do not convey the full spectrum of progesterone's benefits and they have numerous potential deleterious (harmful) side-effects not found when using natural progesterone. The natural hormones are more quickly metabolized and excreted than the synthetic versions. Progesterone has no known side effects.

What is the difference between synthetic progestin’s and bioidentical Progesterone?

Pharmaceutical progestin’s do not appear in the biosynthesis pathway. The fact is they are not found in any living forms. Furthermore, being foreign to all living things, they are patentable and thereby potentially more profitable. The practice of manufacturing progesterone correctly called progestin in the synthetic form is of world wide concern. Horse farms exist to manufacture the highly concentrated pregnant horse mare urine used in the pathway to manufacturing this pharmaceutical concoction. Natural Progesterone is from a plant extraction and is not patentable. Progesterone is extracted from either yam or soy and then altered minimally to yield the same progesterone that your body makes. 

Why do conventional doctors believe that women do not need progesterone if they do not have a uterus?

There are three inter-related components to the conventional doctors' error in believing that the only purpose for using progesterone in HRT is to protect against endometrial cancer and, thus, is not needed in a woman without her uterus. These are:
  • The doctor is unaware of the multiple beneficial roles of progesterone
  • The doctor is unaware of the multiple dangers of unopposed estrogen
  • The doctor is thinking of the problems with progestin’s, not progesterone.

Can women using birth control pills benefit from using bioidentical Progesterone Cream?

Little benefit can be derived as birth control pills work by suppressing normal hormones.
