No: There is no evidence Progesterone of any type prevents breast cancer, "natural" Progesterone or not. If a woman has menses that only occur a few times a year, six or four or fewer, however, Progesterone or progesterone-like compounds can very definitely prevent endometrial hyperplasia (which can lead to uterine cancer), and should be used regularly to oppose continuous estrogen stimulation.
A 40-year-old member asked:

I'm having ovulation pain. Could Clomid (clomiphene) be the cause?

Dr. Philip Chenette
Fertility Medicine 38 years experience
Yes: Clomiphene is a stimulant to the ovaries. It raises the FSH levels and triggers development of follicles. The ovaries enlarge as the follicle develops. Some women produce a large number of folicles, adding to the stretching sensation. Most of the time these symptoms are minimal, but on occasion can be quite uncomfortable. Almost always the symptoms are short-lived.

Ovulation Time: Generally speaking around the time you ovulate. That is often about 10 days after taking the clomid (clomiphene). You can check ovulation kits and time sex to the few days after the kit turns positive. A fertility specialist can also help guide you to know whether the pill is working.

Can you tell me what progesterone only birth control pills are?

2 doctor answers5 doctors weighed in
Dr. Leandro Rodriguez
Obstetrics and Gynecology 20 years experience
No estrogen. : Most birth control pills contain both estrogen and progesterone. Progesterone only pills are commonly used in the postpartum period because they are thought to be less likely to decrease breast milk production. They are also an alternative in women with risk factors for blood clots. These pills are also different in that no pill-free interval or placebo is used.
