Which brand of natural progesterone cream is advisable to use for treating pcos & estrogen dominance?
By the follicle: An amazing dance of hormones coordinates the reproductive system. One of the thousands of egg sacs that are in the ovary matures each month during the reproductive years. During the first two weeks of the menstrual cycle, the follicle releases estradiol, a potent estrogen. After releasing its egg, the follicle becomes a corpus luteum and makes Progesterone instead. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Black cohosh or bio-identical estrogen/progesterone cream to help balance hormones in perimenopause?
No data.: Bio-identical hormones is a topic vastly argued in our field. As it stands now, you should be cautious using bio-identical hormones because there is no control over how they are mixed and produced, and there is no data about what is a safe and efficacious formulation and dosage. Speak with your doctor about this for a more in depth conversation and to determine if it is actually needed for you. ...Read more
Does natural progesterone cream really help in correcting an imbalance between estrogen and progesterone?
Usually : If you do not ovulate or if you make a lot of estrogen, Progesterone can help calm your body from the overstimulation of the estrogen.

Not very good: In natural or surgical menopause (removal of both ovaries) the problem is lack of estrogen. Giving estrogen to women who have not had their uterus removed (hysterectomy) increases the risk of uterine cancer, so we give Progesterone or synthetic progestins to protect the uterus. Progesterone as skin cream is not enough to protect the uterus, but can reduce hot flashes and does not prevent bone loss. ...Read more

Interesting question: Nocturnal secretion of melatonin has been shown to affect secretion of prolactin. To my knowledge melatonin can exacerbate mild hyperprolactinemia.

Natural progesterone cream instead of prometrium (micronized progesterone) work? How do I get the progest. I need without prescription, is it worth using cream for infertility?
Drugs are similar: "natural" Progesterone and Prometrium (micronized progesterone) are really the same medication.Prometrium (micronized progesterone) is the only brand name Progesterone in a micronized capsule. Normally Progesterone would be digested by the gut, so it needs to be made differently. For both these you would need a physician prescription, but there are lower dose, less refined alternatives available otc or online. Not infertility meds by themselves. ...Read more
