Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome - PCOS
Worked Wonders for me so far with my Endo Symptoms, No Cramps, No Swelling of my Chest, and No More Bloated Stomach. PCOS Improved.
Abt. 3 or 4 years ago, I had a lump in my stomach the size of a cantaloupe, it turned out to be my right ovary that had grown to be that size, so I went to my gynecologist and he said I needed immediate surgery to have it removed. So a week later I went into the hospital for surgery and had it removed along w/ my appendix b/c it was attached to it. Luckily it was not attached to my bowel. He diagnosed it was endometriosis after the surgery. For a while everything felt better, but shortly after all of my symptoms came back. As of now I've been on Depot Lupron twice for a period of 6 months throughout the years to stop my period so that my body could recover for a while, also I have been on and off birth control. Currently I have been on continuous birth control for about 3 months, and right b4 that I had a round of depot lupron. So I've only had my period abt. 2 times within the last 9 months. My doctor recommended I see a infertility specialist, so I did and was told it would be impossible to become pregnant on my own without doing in-vitro fertilization due to my severe endometriosis and only having one ovary. He was afraid that if I went off the birth control pills long enough to try to conceive that my endo cysts would grow back and prevent it. He also said I have PCOS. My chest is sore and swollen all of the time, I feel nauseas and I have gained about 20 lbs within the last year, and I get severe cramping without any warning. I've been exploring tcm, acupuncture for fertility, I don't know where to turn. I want to get pregnant on my own b/c I can't afford to do ivf and I don't want to be on all of these medicines that make me all wacky. Please help. Can progestelle help me?? I can't even have a sexual relationship w/ my boyfriend b/c having sex is so painful and burning, I've lost the desire b/c I don't enjoy it anymore.
This has worked wonders for me so far with my endo symptoms, no cramps, no swelling of my chest, and no more bloated stomach. But for the entire 2 weeks I've been on progestelle I have had migraines like every other day and have had to leave work early quite often. Do you have any suggestions as to why I would be getting such bad headaches like this??? I really need to stop them so that I don't miss soooo much work.
Thank you for your quick responses on my questions.
I am still using the progestelle, just finished my first bottle yesterday and my headaches have subsided since I last e-mailed, which is awesome, so I am feeling better on the progesterone oil and cut out the xenoestrogens I put on my skin.
But, do I have to stop using the progestelle oil in order to get my period??? Or do I continue using 3 dropfuls at night like I have been until my period arrives then stop the progestelle?? I'm just a little confused abt. that part of the regime.
The last time I had my period was Nov 20th, and it lasted for 12 days.

Editor's Note: The increased headaches with the use of Progestelle is from xenoestrogens or chemical or herbal estrogens in her environment. To get rid of the headaches, get rid of the xenoestrogens. Sometimes lotions and sunscreens take about 1-3 months to wash out of the body.
Constant environmental estrogen exposure leads estrogen receptors to down regulate or become "sleepy". Taking progesterone cream "wakes up" the estrogen receptors and estrogen now has a greater effect. This greater effect of the estrogen yields headaches. The solution is to cut out xenoestrogens.
This Is Great For Women With PCOS
This is by far the best progesterone I have taking. I have started using the oil after ovulation and it works wonders. I have PCOS and have been TTC for years. I have been getting my cycles on time for a while now, but still was having bad mood swings, breast tenderness and all. After using the oil I none of the PMS at all , I did not even had cramps during my cycle . The book that comes with it has very good info that all women need to read. The Dr. answers all my emails with good info., I will be ordering this again. I just pray that one day my husband and I will be able to conceive. I will keep everyone posted with updated and more. This is the best!!

It Really Works!
This is great for PCOS! I only wish it was cheaper, so that I could use it consistently. You might not think your are estrogen dominant, as I didn't, but when I first started using it, a cycle came like it was supposed to. The only thing I notice about this product is you can smell the "hormone scent" if placed on your chest area. It is natural and comes with a booklet. The booklet is written in a directive context and not a professional one, but it doesn't make the information any less plausible. Unfortunately, I haven't rid myself of all the estrogen products out there, but I do take kelp with it, as it is supposed to rich in iodine and recommended for PCOS. If you have PCOS or other related issue, please don't hesitate to purchase this, it really does what it's supposed to do!
So Far So Good!
I've been reading about this for a long while and after being on every bc imaginable I've decided to go this route. I was diagnosed with having ovarian cysts but the doctors never confirmed me having the syndrome. Either way, my periods have been erratic and my cycle lasts for way longer than 28 days and it's not good since the lining can build and become a cancer risk. Being off birth control and changing my diet has helped some what. I just needed an extra push and a natural cure and not synthetic hormones to regulate me.
After a lot of research I came across this product. I received it on day 24 of my cycle...the instructions said to use during days 14-26 of my cycle so I applied it for 2 days. On days 27 and 28 my breasts were incredibly sore, I felt some mild cramping as well, and had a minor headache for 1 day. I couldn't believe how fast it worked. It's day 29 now and I had some light bleeding so I really want to consider this day 1 of my cycle!
Had I not applied the oil I'm sure I would've easily gone 40+ days without any bleeding whatsoever. This is the first time I've ever had any bleeding after day 28! I may have been in my early 20s when I had regular 28 day cycles, so I'm very optimistic about being regular again and hopeful that one day I can become a mom without the complications that come with having ovarian issues.
I did notice I was a bit irritable the days I applied the oil but that subsided pretty quickly. Overall I feel like I'm moving in the right direction and so happy that I don't have any synthetic chemicals going into my body. I will say that the instruction booklet is a bit overwhelming but the information is helpful, I'll read in more detail soon.
Overall, very happy with this purchase!

The Tenderness Is Greatly Improved And The Pain All Gone
I was told a couple of years ago that I had polycystic breast disease. The cysts had been increasing in number and size over about 8 years. They didn't bother me until about a year ago. One Cyst became very obvious, and I had it aspirated and tested. Last summer, I started having very uncomfortable pain and tenderness in the areas of the cysts. I was also experiencing common symptoms of estrogen dominance.
I am now 49. In researching, I came across your information and made some changes. I have eliminated a lot of the xenoestrogens and phytoestrogens and been using Progestelle since September. The tenderness is greatly improved and the pain all but gone. I no longer have fluctuations in my energy level and I have been able to loose some of my "bubble wrap" abound my middle. I sleep better, focus better, and just don't feel so old and tired. I have followed your plan of one ounce for three months and then reducing the dosage, and am beginning my 5th month now. I will continue to use Progestelle.

Yes, You Saved My Life, PCOS, Fibroids, Bloating, and Edema
I have been suffering with PCOS for 7 years!
I've also developed fibroid tumors over the last few years as well. I initially tried your Progesterone oil to treat the fibroids, but with the combination of progesterone, avoiding xenoestrogens, and switching to Nature Clean laundry powder my period is back! And I am less bloated and I have lost the 15 pounds of water weight I've been carrying around for years! I cannot tell you what a life changing program this has been for me, and I'd like to give you my sincerest thanks for saving my life. Yes, you saved my life - I haven't felt myself in 7 years - between the mood swings, bloating, my health issues constantly consuming my life, I haven't been motivated to do anything... Now, I feel like I've been reborn.
Thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you!!!
Of course you can publish my testimonial!
I don't think my fibroids are completely gone yet, but I can certainly tell that they have shrunk. I can feel them when I lay down and they have definitely gotten smaller. Regarding the PCOS, I am convinced I am recovering from that as well. I've only been on your program for 2 months, so I am hopeful after another few months I will be symptom free. I had a sono a few months ago and my largest fibroid was about 2 inches in diameter, and I plan to get another sono in a few months to see any results.

It’s Been Life Transforming. It Saved My Life!
Hello, my name is Lyssa and I am 43 years old. I suffered from what my doctors feared was Endometriosis for 11 years. My symptoms were as follows. Periods that were so heavy that I was bordering on hemorrhaging every month. In addition my periods were so painful that there were times I would actually pass out. I couldn't leave my home, work and some months even get out of bed. There were months that my periods came twice a month and would last for weeks. Over the last couple of years I actually stopped bleeding and was just left with the unbearable pain. In addition to excruciatingly painful periods I also suffered from polycystic ovary disease. In my case I had ongoing ovarian cysts that I literally thought at times would do me in. My stomach would get so extended that I would have purplish marks on it that would appear overnight.
Each doctor I went to told me that my ONLY option was surgery and or high doses of artificial hormones. The surgery options consisted of an endometrial ablation and a complete hysterectomy. Surgery was not something that I was willing to consider, I did try the hormones for a few months and the side effects were unbearable. My quest for healing this also included dietary changes, chiropractic care, acupuncture, naturopath consultation and tons of supplements. I was at the end of my rope about 7 months ago that I decided I could not longer live with this pain. I had heard that high doses of progesterone could possibly help my situation but I only want it try it in naturally form. I started searching on the internet for such a product and came across Dr, Eckhart's website, I immediately contacted him about my situation and he responded right back with several suggestions. I ordered the Progesterelle right away and added Endovan as per Dr. Eckhart's suggestion. I made changes to my personal care products and started noticing significant changes in the first 3 months including decreased pain, bloating, PMS and actually having a flow again. By the 5th month my periods were as close to normal as they have every been. It's been life transforming. It saved my life!
