Natural Bioidentical Progesterone is Natural, Prescriptions Progestins are not NOT Natural

Natural Progesterone is NOT 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.

You should feel some difference after 10 days. IF you do not feel any different, you may be one of the 1% of patients that do not absorb Natural Progesterone well through the skin. This may confirmed with a saliva test. You may take a prescription Natural Oral Progesterone (Prometrium) instead.

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,Natural Progesterone side effectsthen you will have 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.

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.

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 1-2 months, and THEN try Natural Progesterone again.

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 Side Effects

Increased Sleepiness

Natural Progesterone side effectsMany 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 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 Side Effects

Rash, Hives, Itching

This is less than 1% of customers that use Progestelle ®.
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.

Rare 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.

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.
