Are there risks or side effects of using progesterone cream (wild yam)?

Are there risks or side effects of using progesterone cream (wild yam)?

These may be: Used for a variety of conditions, but the only one that has any shred of scientific backing is local estrogen supplementation in early menopause-- but even here the scientific evidence doesn't back up the claims. The risks include stimulation of estrogen sensitive malignancies. Also they should be avoided in pregnancy and breast feeding. In summary, probably a waste of money. ...Read more

Prometrium (micronized progesterone) claims to be from wild yam but is there a synthetic in it?

I have minimal change disease. I want to start using wild yam 2000mg daily as a contraception option. Will this herb damage kidneys more?

Wild Yam: I do not know of any studies that show that wild yam helps with contraception but it may cause scarring of the kidneys based on a study in 2008 "food and chemical toxicology" journal. Taking unregulated herbs can be a very risk proposition as no one is 100% sure what potential side effects you may have. ...Read more

I am 23 years old girl. Is it safe if I start taking herb pills like saw palmetto, wild yam and fenugreek?

I am 23 years old girl. Is it safe if I start taking herb pills like saw palmetto, wild yam and fenugreek?

See answer: Taking herbal remedies is tempting. Testimonials abound from people who have solved their medical problems with "safe, natural" and over-the-counter pills. But informed consumers need to know that there are very few valid medical studies on herbal remedies, their safety, quality, or effectiveness. There is no substitute for a healthy diet, healthy lifestyle, and proper rest. ...Read more

Does this affect my Skyla at all? Natural Change Blend SP-7D (red clover black cohosh pomegranate red raspberry wild yam fenugreek seed butternut fennel)

Probably not.: Although it sounds as though it probably would not affect it, nutritional supplements are not tested or overseen by any regulatory agency, so it is impossible to know for sure what you're getting. You should discuss any potential interactions with your OB/GYN. Hope that helps. ...Read more

Breast size: Breast size is genetically determined, and is not affected by individual supplements. Eat a healthy diet, and be proud of whatever develops. Supplements that you take will not matter in the eventual size of your breasts. Don't waste your money. Good luck. ...Read more

Is yam a fiber food?

Is yam a fiber food?

> sweet potato: Yams are unusual in the U.S.: most are huge, pale colored and African in origin. They have about 4 grams of fiber in a 100gram serving, which is high.

Sweet potatoes are often mislabeled as yams, because that is the term that people know.

Sweet potatoes can look like potatoes, are every color of the rainbow, and have fewer calories, less fiber and about 100x the beta carotene as do yams. ...Read more

I just ate some raw Jamaican yellow yam, what do I need to do? I feel sort of prickly.

Feeling prickly after, Jamaican yellow yam: Whenever symptoms and secondary to foods you ingested, and you have now systemic symptoms, in my opinion you should take:
prednisone 5 mg every eight hours for a few days with or without an antihistaminic which will control you symptoms.
You should see a primary care physician, who will provide a physical examination and a prescription which will help with the symptoms. ...Read more

Will eating sweet potatoes or yams help raise progesterone levels? Or rather what foods/drinks may raise progesterone levels naturally?

No, and none: Sweet potatoes and yams do not contain actual Progesterone at all, that is not a matter of debate in 2014. Further they do not contain anything that acts like Progesterone (progestogenic), most contain plant chemical that are estrogenic in action. You can raise Progesterone by supplementing progesterone, but why do you want to do this? ...Read more

Can a physically muscular woman wanting to lose weight benefit from men's diet products?

Diet and exercise: For the most part those diet products are a ripoff and don't really help with weight loss.

Might it be possible that a a physically masculine woman wanting to lose weight benefit from men's diet products?

Yes: The truth is that designating a weight-loss product as "for men" or "for women" is 99% advertising / marketing. The key to weight loss will always be calories-in and calories-out, the products work when combined with exercise and a low-calorie diet, a cheap vitamin-mineral tablet is probably more than enough, & lasting weight loss comes from lifestyle change. Glad you're doing this; good luck. ...Read more

What are some benefits and risks of estrogen blockers for men?

There are: No benefits. The only men who take them are "body builders" who put their faith in pharmacology instead of their genetics and work ethic, and then suffer the consequences for their poor decision making. Besides, you'd have to get them illegally on the black market, could get a very toxic drug instead, and could be liable for a felony conviction. Does that make sense? ...Read more
