Side Effects of Natural Bioidentical Progesterone

Side Effects of Natural Bioidentical Progesterone Cream

Natural Bioidentical Progesterone is Natural. Brand Name Prescription Progestins are not NOT Natural.

Natural Progesterone is NOT a prescription Progestin. Natural Progesterone is bioidentical to the hormones in your body. Prescription Progestins are chemically modified progesterones (Progestins) so as to be patented and thus can be sold as expensive patented drugs. Natural Progesterone cannot be patented because it is found in nature.

Prescription Progestins CAUSE cancer according to a recent Physicians Desk Reference (PDR). See under Progestins and QandA.

Natural Progesterone is thought to PREVENT cancer.  Women that are pregnant and deliver many times have high levels of progesterone during the entire pregnancy.  These women have a lower chance of breast cancer and endometrial cancer.  These lower rates of breast cancer and endometrial cancer are thought to be due to the high levels of Natural Progesterone produced during pregnancy.

Brand Name Progestins cause birth defects according to a recent copy of the Physician's Desk Reference (PDR).  Natural Progesterone does NOT cause birth defects.  Fertility Medical Doctors (IVF test tube babies) use Natural Progesterone shots to stop miscarriage.  Fertility Medical Doctors do NOT use Brand Name Progestins to stop miscarriage because Brand Name Progestins cause birth defects.

You should feel some difference after 10 days. IF you do not feel any different, you may be heavy set.  If you are are heavy set, apply the Bioidentical Natural Progesterone over the inside of the thighs and inside of the arms.  The fat will be thinner on the inside of the thighs and the inside of the arms.  In this way, the Natural Progesterone will go into the body instead of going into the fat. This may confirmed with a saliva test.   Another option is to take a prescription Natural Oral Progesterone (Prometrium) instead.

Good Side Effects

Too much estrogen (Estrogen Dominance) causes the body to become less sensitive to thyroid hormone. In other words, you will have normal or low thyroid hormone by lab test, but look hypothyroid. Thus, too much estrogen causes hypothyroid even though lab tests are normal. If you are hypothyroid due to estrogen dominance, the hypothyroid will cause fat on the hips and thinning hair. Natural Progesterone will reverse too much estrogen and oppose estrogen, IF you avoid xenoestrogens. Thus, it may become easier to lose fat on the belly and hips and grow thicker hair when you take Natural Progesterone and have normal thyroid function.

Estrogen Dominance is too much estrogen.  Where is all this excess estrogen coming from?  The excess estrogen is coming from chemicals or herbs that mimic estrogen.  The main route of entry is the skin.  Anything on the skin is 10 times the dose in potency.  Many of the cosmetics and toiletries even from the health food store have chemicals and herbs in them that mimic estrogen.  These chemicals and herbs that mimic estrogen (xenoestrogens) do NOT appear on the lab blood test.  There is no lab test for xenoestrogens.  I wish there was a routine lab test for xenoestrogens, but the lab test does not exist.  Order any product from us and get a free list of chemicals and herbs that mimic estrogen.  Order any product from us and get a free list of recommended products that are devoid of xenoestrogens.  I looked at 500 shampoos and only found 3 shampoos that were acceptable.

Basically, you are unknowingly poisoning yourself by putting hormone disruptive chemicals and herbs on your skin!

Natural Progesterone is known as the "happy hormone". During the third trimester of pregnancy, the placenta produces 400 mg/day of Natural Progesterone (20 times the normal dose). After delivery (the placenta is delivered too), progesterone drops to zero and then you get post partum depression.

The Reason Why Bad Side Effects of Natural Bioidentical Progesterone Happen

Basically, the reason why you have a female disease is because you are unintentionally poisoning yourself with chemicals or natural herbs that mimic estrogen (xenoestrogens).  These xenoestrogens are strange estrogens that do strange things to the body like promote breast cancer.  The solution is to stop poisoning yourself.  The main way the xenoestrogens get into the body is through the skin.  Anything on the skin is 10 times the dose in potency because anything taken orally is 90% first pass metabolized by the liver.  If you completely remove xenoestrogens from your environment mainly from your skin, then many times the female disease will completely go away.

The vast majority of women in America are unwittingly poisoning themselves with cosmetics and toiletries filled with xenoestrogens.  The human body to protect itself shuts down its sensitivity to xenoestrogens.  In Biology, this is known as "Down Regulation".  It is sort of like going to a loud rock concert.  Initially, the rock concert is loud.  Then, after one half hour, the rock concert is not as loud.  Your ears have "Down Regulated".  When you take Natural Bioidentical Progesterone, your estrogen receptors "Up Regulate".  Now, the xenoestrogens are louder, and you are getting worse.

Thus, if you take Natural Bioidentical Progesterone and strong xenoestrogens simultaneously, you will get worse.  Your "Down Regulated" estrogen receptors will actually become "Up Regulated" by the Bioidentical Progesterone.  You now have normal sensitivity to the xenoestrogens (before it was dulled sensitivity).  You will now have more weight gain, more thinning hair, more headaches, more sugar cravings, less libido, more bloating, and more breast tenderness.  This is because you did not cut out strong xenoestrogens and took Natural Progesterone at the same time.

The solution is to cut out all xenoestrogens.  Wait 2-3 months for the xenoestrogens to wash out of the body.  Then, take Natural Bioidentical Progesterone.  If you start to lose weight at this time, the fat may release xenoestrogens that have been stored in the fat.

For a SIMPLE explanation for a SIMPLE natural help for endometriosis see about how xenoestrogens cause endometriosis (click here!). Find out why in 1921, there were only 20 cases of endometriosis in the entire world wide medical literature. And now, 1 in 20 women in America have endometriosis. Endometriosis is the most common cause of infertility. BUY our pure Tried and True Natural Progesterone at and get a FREE ($19.95 value) list of xenoestrogens (chemicals that pretend to be estrogen). (click here!). Find out why in 1950, the breast cancer incidence was 1 in 20. And now in 2007, 1 in 7 women in America get Breast Cancer.

This is important and at the risk of being redundant, here is the explanation again.  Again, your body tries to compensate for prolonged chronic estrogen exposure by becoming less sensitive to estrogen. As soon as you take Natural Progesterone, then your body regains its original sensitivity to estrogen. And it seems that you are getting more estrogen because your sensitivity has increased back to normal.

Too much estrogen (estrogen dominance) is characterized by increased bloating and increased breast tenderness. So it looks like you are getting more estrogen even though you are not.

Irregular periods can occur because of the regaining of original sensitivity of estrogen so it seems like you are getting more estrogen even though you are not.

The solution is to STOP Natural Progesterone STOP all xenoestrogens, WAIT for 2-3 months, and THEN try Natural Progesterone again.

If you begin to lose weight, the fat will release xenoestrogens stored in the fat, and you will react to the xenoestrogen being released from the fat.

For instance, I had one patient that was a medical doctor from China. She now worked as a nurse in the USA. She had cysts in the breast and fibroids. As soon as she received Natural Progesterone she used it immediately. Cysts in the breast and fibroids both became worse. She called me. I counseled her to stop all xenoestrogens and wait a month. She religiously followed the avoidance list that came with our product and began to apply Progestelle ® the next month. The next month, the cysts in the breast began to improve along with her fibroids.

Other Bioidentical Progesterone Side Effects

Increased Sleepiness

Many patients enjoy increased sleepiness, and take Progestelle ® just before bedtime. However, if you don't like the sleepiness, you may decrease the dose. Everyone metabolizes Progesterone differently. So listen to your body and adjust the dose to what works for you, typically 1-3 dropperfuls (typically 20 mg/day - 60 mg/day).

Other Bioidentical Progesterone Side Effects

Shortness of Breath

If this occurs wash off Progestelle ® off the skin. Typically the shortness of breath disappears. Try less the next day. Typically, the shortness of breath does NOT return.

Uncommon Bioidentical Progesterone Side Effects

Rash, Hives, Itching

In one out of 400 customers that use Progestelle ®, there is an allergy to the coconut oil. This is due to an allergic response to the coconut oil in the product NOT the Natural Progesterone. Contact us. We will send you Natural Progesterone suspended in another oil, grapeseed oil or organic olive oil.  It is possible to allergic to the progesterone itself.  It seems that one out of 10,000 patients are allergic to the progesterone itself.

Rare Bioidentical Progesterone Side Effects

Mental confusion

I have heard of mental confusion anecdotally with patients taking high amounts of high concentration progesterone creams of about 3 times the concentration of Progestelle ®. I have never seen this with Progestelle ® since 1999. The mental confusion stopped after the patient stopped taking the competitor's high dose Progesterone Cream after 2-3 months.

Bioidentical Progesterone Side Effects related to Fertility


John Lee, MD has used natural progesterone to treat infertility and trigger ovulation for women after the age of 35. Progesterone may be used to suppress ovulation for several months. Then the woman can spring off of progesterone and any eggs left will ovulate.READ more about progesterone use to treat infertility here.

Some patients that have a progesterone deficiency or are using a progesterone blocking chemical or progesterone blocking herb on their skin conceive VERY quickly when using progesterone. I have had several patients unable to conceive for 5-6 years that conceived within 2-3 weeks of using topical progesterone. Progesterone tells the uterus to make a nice lining for the embryo to implant and start to grow a baby. If there is a progesterone deficiency or a chemical that the patient is using that blocks progesterone, then no lining is formed. And no baby is made.

Fertility test tube Medical Doctors typically use progesterone to stop miscarriage for their babies. The vast majority of 1st trimester miscarriages can easily be solved by using progesterone. In addition, early delivery can also be stopped by using progesterone. The use of progesterone during pregnancy should be supervised by a Medical Doctor. There can be NO sudden drop in the use of progesterone. The sudden drop in progesterone, like forgetting to take progesterone one day, will cause a miscarriage. You cannot forget to take progesterone one day.

Suppression of Ovulation

Taking progesterone before ovulation will fool the body into thinking it is pregnant. The ovaries will look at progesterone levels and think that the woman is pregnant. Thus, taking progesterone before ovulation will stop the ovaries from ovulating. This is the principle used when using progesterone for infertility.
