Women tend to think bio-identical progesterone cream is used exclusively to balance their hormones during perimenopause and menopause. The truth is, women of all ages benefit from bio-identical progesterone cream. Exposure to an ever-growing number of xenoestrogens (estrogen mimicking chemicals) and other known endocrine disrupting substances in our environment, foods and the products we use, has contributed to an increase in endometriosis, infertility, uterine fibroids and Polycystic Ovary Syndrome. Young girls are reaching puberty much earlier (precocious puberty) in life, potentially putting them at a higher risk of developing breast cancer. Progesterone cream supports healthy hormonal balance to address these conditions and more.
Premenstrual Syndrome (PMS)
The symptoms of PMS occur during the second half of the menstrual cycle, increasing in severity until your period begins. Both emotional and physical, symptoms range from mildly annoying to completely debilitating during this time. Common PMS symptoms include depression, irritability, oversensitivity, mood swings, headaches, breast tenderness, food cravings, fatigue, bloating and abdominal cramps. Premenstrual Dysphoric Disorder (PMDD) refers to a more extreme form of PMS which can lead to a significant loss of function due to the severity of its symptoms.
Although there isn't a single reason why some women suffer from PMS and others don't, stress is believed to be a factor since the stress hormone cortisol literally steals progesterone from the body. In his book, "What Your Doctor May Not Tell You About PREmenopause: Balance Your Hormones and Your Life from Thirty to Fifty", Dr. John Lee explains that a progesterone deficiency (estrogen dominance) is likely the main cause, since many of the symptoms of PMS mimic those of estrogen dominance. He goes on to say, "A little progesterone cream will go a long way" to relieve the symptoms of PMS.
Infertility is defined by the failure to conceive after trying to do so for at least one year. Approximately 20% of couples in the United States struggle with infertility at any given time and those numbers have continued to climb over the last two decades. Additionally, one in three pregnancies ends in miscarriage. While there can be a myriad of reasons a couple is unable to conceive and/or experience a miscarriage, researchers acknowledge the connection between endocrine disrupting chemicals and estrogen dominance, which leads to a deficiency of progesterone.
Healthy progesterone levels are required to create a fertile environment for conception and gestation. Progesterone also prevents the shedding of the endometrial lining helping to prevent miscarriage in the early weeks of pregnancy. Once a woman conceives, the placenta produces progesterone, secreting as much as 300-400 mg. a day during the third trimester. In the book, "Beating Infertility, Getting Pregnant and Staying Pregnant: You Can Try This at Home" by John R. Lee, M.D. and Virginia Hopkins, it's recommended to supplement with progesterone cream to conceive and lower your risk of miscarriage.
Polycystic Ovary Syndrome
PCOS refers to multiple cysts on the ovaries caused in part by a lack of ovulation, the result of too little progesterone and an excess of cyst proliferating estrogens. In turn, this lack of ovulation creates an imbalance in the finely orchestrated cyclical hormonal system of a woman's body. A diet high in sugar and refined carbohydrates which leads to weight gain, type II diabetes and insulin resistance, also contributes to PCOS. Improving your diet is an essential step to healing polycystic ovary syndrome.
Most medical doctors treat PCOS with hormone blocking and insulin-lowering drugs. These are not only laden with harmful side effects, they don't address the underlying cause of the condition and only bring temporary results. In the book, "Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) A New Epidemic that Causes Infertility, Excess Hair, Acne and More" by John R. Lee, M.D. and Virginia Hopkins it's suggested to apply progesterone cream to support your body in returning to its normal hormonal rhythms.
Hormonal imbalances can cause irregular periods at any age. Some women as young as their mid-30's already notice the symptoms of perimenopause. They begin to skip ovulation which is necessary for the production of progesterone. To regulate your period, many OB/GYN's and medical doctors prescribe "The Pill". While it might make your cycles perfectly regular, the pill shuts down the production of your own hormones. Ultimately, it only creates a greater imbalance, not to mention its extensive health risks and side effects.
A 21-year old Organic Excellence customer recently shared these great results..."I have never had regular cycles. I usually have periods that are 3 months long. I have been using Feminine Balance Therapy for about 6 months, and finally for the first time I have 5-day long periods and they are a month apart! My hormones are becoming more balanced. Thank you so much for a wonderful product!"
