I Want My Recovery To Encourage People
I want my "recovery" to encourage people who take longer in responding effectively to the benefits of progesterone. Even my husband says I am about 100% better than I was a year ago. I used to call him at work while I was home crying in pain. Now I can make it through a period and still go camping, or be at work or school, without having to be home rolling on the floor in pain and vomiting. I have been to ER/Urgent Care twice in the last 8 years for vomiting and dehydration related to my period. Doctors tell me there's nothing they can do and I should be on hormonal Birth Control. They tell me I probably have Endometriosis and the first protocol is BC. I never took the BC for fear it would feed my problems, based on the estrogen content. I have suffered month after month for years. I used to be fine with periods until I was about 18 when I started with the pain and nausea. My mother used to tell me it is probably normal because she and her sister had bad periods too. My mom's got better after pregnancy and my aunt stays on Birth Control hormones.
After using Progestelle regularly, FINALLY I have found a GREAT deal of relief and have returned to almost pain-free periods. Now I might need Aleve or Advil a few times a day for a couple days but no more debilitating pain. I actually have completely pain free days during my period as well! It took me a good 6 months to feel that I was measurably, considerably improved. Now I still do not have 100% easy periods but looking back, I am doing worlds better than I have in YEARS!!!! When I stopped the Progesterone it was a few months before I started suffering again, so I knew it was helping me and got back on it. Now even if I use it every month or every other month I still maintain a constant betterment from where I was a year or 2 ago. I would recommend anyone who suffers like I did, to PLEASE just give it a try and don't give up even if it takes 3 months or more to feel a lot better. When you are suffering like I was, it was so hard to believe anything would really help. Sometimes I still have a hard time believing that I have found something that WORKS! It is just so amazing. I thank God all the time for giving me resources, because it was after asking Him to help me find an answer, that I stumbled across Progestelle (I felt it was my last resort before trying hormonal birth control pills that I was sure were bad for me). Thanks to Dr. Eckhart for taking the time and compassion to explain why this works and give helpful recommendations.
To avoid hormonal birth control, my husband and I took advantage of the Fertility Awareness Method, based on signs of fertility and using condoms during fertile time. It has worked for us for three years and is a wonderful alternative to hormonal Birth Control. AND! After abandoning our birth control method in order to conceive, I got pregnant on our first try!!! I had no idea if I would have fertility issues but if I did, I certainly don't now.
THANK YOU for your help!! GOD BLESS!!!

Took A High Dose Of Progestelle Throughout My Pregnancy
I took progesterone creams and later Progestelle for a few years to control PMS symptoms before using Progestelle in pregnancy. I switched to Progestelle as my brand of choice to avoid the estrogenic chemical and herbal additives in the creams. I found Dr. Eckhart's pamphlet on estrogen dominance syndrome very persuasive. While on Progestelle and Fibrovan prior to pregnancy, an apricot sized fibroid I had shrank to 1.7cm in diameter, verified by ultrasound.
I got pregnant for the first time right after my 37th birthday. At 11.5 weeks I went to the ER with bleeding and got diagnosed with an SCH. We followed Dr. Eckhart's advice to raise the dose of Progestelle and remain on the Progestelle until after delivery. And also to avoid oral progesterone because of the risk of allergic reactions. Taking this advice was not easy. When the weather got cold, it became harder and harder to find exposed skin areas to put the progesterone on, that would not rub off with clothing. This takes commitment on the woman's part-- it's no joke. I was taking a very high dose (relatively) of Progestelle at this point.
But the proof is in the pudding. The 20-week Level 2 ultrasound with the perinatologist showed no SCH remaining and a baby, placenta and cord with not only normal, but ideal measurements. Our baby was born on his due date and was extremely healthy, vigorous and loud. He was the biggest, pinkest one in the nursery, at 9 lbs 2 oz and almost 24 inches long. At 4 months he had already doubled his birth weight and was ahead on all the developmental charts and around 95th percentile for head measurement. At 3.5 months, he got his first tooth, which is not surprising since progesterone builds bone.
Throughout the pregnancy we received grossly ignorant and life-threatening advice from MD's and midwives about progesterone. One M.D. (Ob/Gyn) and his midwife in Hudson, WI, told us to stop the Progestelle "cold turkey" at 12 weeks after the SCH. This would have caused a miscarriage within a couple of days. After he was born there was a twenty-something nurse fresh out of school who got in her little head that he needed a diabetes test, and wanted me to drink some sugar syrup. She was furious that we refused. (I had taken chromium throughout pregnancy on Dr. Eckhart's advice and did not have diabetes). His pediatrician said the nurse didn't know anything, and he was the least diabetic kid there, based on his 24-hour blood test results. You have to be a savvy consumer of healthcare and watch your back at hospitals. Because my Dad was a career Ob/Gyn who had delivered thousands of babies, my mom was a Practical Nurse R.N. who assisted at his clinic, and I had read a bookshelf full of material like _Thinking Woman's Guide to Birth_ by Henci Goer, I was able to avoid getting screwed by the establishment and winding up with a dead or damaged baby. But I was nothing short of a subject-matter expert by that time. I had the I.Q. points necessary to say, "NO" to almost everything they were pushing.
I would encourage the rational consumer to use Progestelle and take Dr. Eckhart's material seriously! Read his booklet on estrogenic herbs-- many of which ignorant folk midwives like to hand out-- some of these were actually used as abortificants, they are so estrogenic. I would also recommend women do their reading to prepare for childbirth, such as Grantley Dick-Read, Henci Goer, John R. Lee's progesterone books, Ina May Gaskins, and whatever else they can get their hands on to defend themselves and their infants against ignorant fools and power-lusters within the medical establishment who are giving out terribly dangerous advice to parents, and taking advantage of exhausted women who have just given birth, and who cannot give informed consent because of what they have just been through. I would also advise women to make sure your husband is on your side, because if he isn't almost as well-educated as you are, he will fall for some of their disinformation. Both partners need to present a united front against the healthcare establishment, and no woman should have to face the medical crowd alone without family and close friends, or spouse, as an advocate.
By the way there is some buzz on the internet about how Dr. Eckhart is a "fake" because he graduated from medical school but dropped out of his internal medicine residency. If this is true, good for Dr. Eckhart! People, this makes him look good, not bad. The Establishment is so corrupt, that an M.D. who "leaves" is probably brighter than average. As a case in point, look at Dr. Brewer, M.D. who came up with the Brewer Diet to cure almost all eclampsia cases. He couldn't stomach his OB residency, either, and only returned to complete his residency later in life after dropping out the first time.

I have been using this product for years now. I switched to this brand when the one I used was discontinued (by Premier Research Labs). I have used this during two pregnancies and in between and after. When I used this progesterone the last pregnancy, Dr. Eckhart spent 45 minutes of his time on the phone with me--no charge. His consult helped me understand what my body needed through the pregnancy. On two occasions, I began cramping (I've had previous miscarriages, so it was scary). I rubbed extra progesterone on my body and took Trilight's Carry On, and the cramping subsided. I used the progesterone throughout the remainder of my pregnancy, and carried full-term.
I continue to use Progestelle, and I always recommend this brand. It's nice that it comes in the dark bottle, and the pamphlet is helpful.
I have heard people question Dr. Eckhart--does he exist, is he really a doctor, etc. As far as I am concerned, he went above and beyond to help me, and it saved the life of my baby. He is knowledgeable, and I trust his information, as it worked for me.

Dear Dr. Eckhart,
You helped me just over a year a nine months ago with my trying to conceive. Our daughter, N., just turned one. My difficulty was not getting pregnant, but keeping the pregnancy. I took Progestelle, and that ensured my pregnancy. Our daughter is very healthy, happy, and bright. My husband and I are trying to conceive again. I was 42 when I conceived N., and now am 43 going on 44.
Thank you kindly,

Miscarriage Avoided - Healthy Baby Born!
I am 43 years old now. At 41 years of age I began to experience some symptoms of MONTHLY BLOATING AND MOOD SWINGS that were worse than I had ever had before. Mood swings and anxiety at times were very hard to deal with. I was also feeling far angrier than the offense would warrant. This was causing a great deal of difficulty in the parenting of my 5 children. As time went on I was having irregular periods as well and then I suffered the loss of two babies due to first trimester losing babies. I read the book, "What Your Doctor May Not Tell You About Premenopause" and decided to ask my pc doctor to evaluate my hormones in the hopes that she would be able to help with the imbalance. She asked me several questions about my emotional symptoms and diagnosed me with depression. She prescribed an anti-depressant. I had a feeling that she would be approaching my condition this way so I had a copy of the book with me, along with some of the web pages I had downloaded from your site. When I told her that I believed the problem was hormonal she excused me saying,"It looks like we're finished here. I can see that I'm not convincing you...but when you decide that you want this prescription it will be waiting for you at the front desk." A few days later she called me to let me know that my test results indicated that I had a thyroid condition which was causing my hormonal problems. I was low in progesterone as well as estrogen and I decided to begin the natural progesterone oil. I shopped all over the internet for a type of NP which would not contain the additives that were undesirable and found this one as the only one based in oil. I was also placed on Synthroid for my thyroid condition and I can't tell you which one if not both of these helped "even me out" but I can tell you that a couple weeks later I was pregnant! Had I followed my doctor's advice I probably would've caused my baby to suffer with birth defects. I was concerned that I would miscarry again but through much prayer and continuing on the natural progesterone through my first trimester things went very well! I want to say that Dr. Eckhart was very responsible in my care even though I have never met the man face-to-face. He quickly responded to my many questions and once even called me on the phone to make sure I knew that I needed to taper off the NP as I progressed to the second trimester of the pregnancy. I gave birth to a ten and a half pound baby boy named Uriah in February and we are all doing wonderfully. I thank God for leading me to your website and have referred other women to your company already. They are pleased with the results also. I know that there will be many more because it seems that often I find that the women I meet are struggling with hormonal changes and have never heard that there is a natural way to solve this problem. So many of them believe that antidepressants are the only answer! Thanks again for providing a better way.

Editor's Note: Estrogen dominance can cause a hypothyroid clinical picture with a normal T3 level. Women are tired and have a body temp. of approximately 97F, and gain fat on the belly and hips. Hair may thin. Avoiding xenoestrogens and taking Natural Progesterone will reverse this. A repeat first trimester miscarriage is almost always a Natural Progesterone deficiency. See www.happypregnant.com for more details.
Healthy Baby Boy!
In my family, we have a genetic history of losing baby over the age of 30 for those of us who suffer from headaches, especially one sided migraine headaches. I get one sided migraine headaches, and I had my first child in my late 20's, with no problems.
I tried to get pregnant again at age 30, and ended up conceiving 8 times, and dumping them every month. One actually stuck for a week, then I miscarried. I tried a low-dosage progesterone prescribed by my Naturopathic Doctor, but it didn't work. I turned to Chinese Medicine, and after 5 treatments, I was pregnant with twins. I didn't continue the treatments, and ended up miscarrying one twin at 11 weeks. I gave birth to the other twin, my daughter, at term.
I got pregnant again before she turned 2, and carried him to 15 weeks. He died in utero, and I carried him for 2 weeks, unaware that he was dead until I miscarried.
I decided to research losing baby and one sided migraine headaches, and came upon the Women's Therapeutic Institute, and Dr. John Lee's information. I took Progestelle for one month, and on the second month, while taking Progestelle, I was pregnant. I continued to take Progestelle every day, and stopped on my 8 month day of pregnancy. I gave birth to a healthy baby boy at term, 3 days before my due date. He is beautiful, strong, and very smart.
I started taking progesterone again 2 months post-partum, while breast feeding full-time, with the advise of my doctor. I noticed an immediate difference in my behavior, and emotions. I felt balanced and had more energy, and I slept better. My baby's behavior stayed the same. The progesterone has no effect on him. I hope my experience helps others who are suffering from losing babies. Progesterone really does work.
Thanks for reading my story.
Healthy Baby Boy Born!
You probably don't remember me but, I'm Kathy K. from Kaneohe, Hawaii and I contacted you about quite sometime ago about the Progestelle. I've had been ordering on a regular basis and it finally happened. I got pregnant. I kept using the product until my 3rd month of pregnancy and slowly tapered off like suggested. I'm glad to inform you that my son was born healthy on 6-22-06. I'm just want to thank you for giving the gift of motherhood which I thought was never possible for me.
How do suggest I use the product now for maintaining hormonal balance and avoiding post partum depression? Also, I do believe I have a fibroid and my period was always irregular (until I started using the product).

We Gave Birth To An 8 And A Half Pound Baby Boy
I received my order today, thanks! I will be good for another nine months now. I am attaching a pic of our baby boy we had last year. I stayed on the Progestelle for the first three months of my pregnancy until my body was making enough progesterone on its own. We gave birth to an 8 and a half pound baby boy that was 22 inches long and in 100% health. I also started my Progestelle again about one month after having our son so I would not have any post partum issues. Our son is now on year old and I have not had any post partum depression and my periods remain light. Since we do not want any more children I only stop my progestelle for the week I am on my period. My periods are light and very little discomfort. Thank you for your product and the information you send with it. I have many instances when I can share my success with others and I tell them about your product.
I have had four children over the past 25 years and never had a miscarriage or any symptoms of one. I had a placenta previa with my first child and I also had severe vomiting for three to four months that required hospitalization. The problem with getting pregnant this last time was the fibroid in my uterus. It seems that the fibroid had grown so large it was nearly growing out my cervix. The reason I began the progestelle was that I had been having worse and worse cycles (obviously the growth of the fibroid) and actually had a period for two months with bleeding so bad I used 3 tampons and one pad at a time and that only lasted an hour or two. I went to many doctors and they did not help. I was so scared I was going to become anemic I began taking iron supplements and drinking icees just to get through the day at work without passing out. I was, however, beginning for forget things that I did not usually forget. It was at this time that I began my own online research, found you, ordered progestelle and my period finally stopped. The progestelle helped me get by a few months until I could schedule surgery and time off to remove the fibroid. After that, I still stayed on my progestelle and my cycles were actually not excruciating anymore. They were so bad before I had the fibroid removed that I would lie down with lots of tylenol and still cry for hours. I have a high pain tolerance so for me to cry was a bad sign. Once that was removed I got pregnant within 3 months after we had been trying for 4 years. I also had NO vomiting with this child either. Not sure why, I understand the the b vitamins help with that a bit. Anyway, I have the lightest, easiest cycles that I have ever had in my life since I have been on your progestelle. I have had severe periods since I was 16, but with the fibroid ( that took doctors four years to find) they were even worse. Progestelle has also taken away, for the most part, my PMS. My PMS was really bad but that too has gone away with the progestelle.
The doctors that I went to for years and tried to tell that I had problems told me I was having "good, heavy, normal periods". Obviously those doctors were ignorant, to say the least. I don't usually treat myself with online information but the lack of doctors that actually want to learn about your progestelle is staggering. It seems that all they could do was make fun of what was working for me, and probably attributed it to "being all in my silly blond head". Finding you and your product has literally changed my life. Thanks. I don't know how you are so open to leaning how to help women but "more power to you". I appreciate your willingness to learn and help women like me. I only wish that there were a world full of more people like you.
Sure you can publish my testimony. The only thing I did not mention is that my breast milk dried up pretty quickly when I started my progesterone again after having our son. I did get 5 weeks of breastfeeding in before I started my progesterone again though. I would be glad to share my testimony because it seems that some "doctors" are a bit ignorant about this progesterone and tend to scare prospective people away from using it when it is really safer than the crap doctors prescribe. I have had many doctors make fun of my progesterone and one did it to my face. It is simply not fair that women get the scare tactics from the doctors they go to concerning natural progesterone alternatives. I would love for my testimony to be an encouragement to other women so that they will not let other doctors scare them out of using it due to unjustified ignorance.

I Had A Healthy Pregnancy
Around September of 2008 my cycles got all wacky. I would bleed one day, skip a couple, start again, skip a few, etc. They were not consistent, like they had been since I started as a child (10 yo). Also, it wasn't the normal 'color' either. it was brownish and liquidy. I started using the progestelle and stopped using as much as I could of the avoid list that comes with the progestelle and my cycles normalized and in a few months I was pregnant. I had a healthy pregnancy (have had several miscarriages prior) and a beautiful baby girl.

I Wound Up Having A Very Healthy Baby
Dear Dr. Eckhart,
Hello! We spoke several times on the phone. I became pregnant while on progestelle ( we were trying) and took it as you described below, and wound up having a very healthy baby boy! He is now 6 weeks old. I am feeling good. It is time for me to start some sort of birth control again, my ob just prescribed the mini-pill or the progesterone only pill. Is this a good idea? I wanted to check with you first, our other option is just to use condoms. I am not on any progestelle at all right now, and I am nursing my baby.

I Had A History Of Miscarriages
My story has been a long 7 year journey....I have been plagued with weight gain, heavy cycles, severe PMS, PCOS, migraines, acne, mood swings, breast tenderness, and infertility (8 first trimester miscarriages in 7 years) It was heart wrenching to keep feeling like I was dying, knowing there was something going on internally that no doctor could "diagnose." I took matters into my own hands and typed in all of my symptoms into a search engine and up came "estrogen dominance" and natural progesterone for the treatment. While I was researching progesterone, I came across your site and liked the fact that your product did not have all of the added herbs and chemicals of the other "natural" protgesterone creams had. I ordered your product and LOVED the buy one get one deal! I used it from ovulation to the beginning of my monthly cycle. I quickly noticed my moodiness disappearing...my acne cleared up, headaches lessened and low and behold within a few months got pregnant. I contacted Dr Eckhart to ask if Progestelle was safe to continue in pregnancy. He assured me it would protect my pregnancy and gave me the dosage recommendations for someone with my history. I continued to use Progestelle until my 6th month and am proud to say I now have a very happy and healthy 3 month old baby boy! Thank you for your support while taking Progestelle! It changed my life! I will continue to use Progestelle and eliminate the use of products on the avoidance list to assure my hormones and body stay in balance! And may even try for baby #2....
I sent this email over a year ago and am pleased to announce I have a healthy, happy 12 week old baby boy! I started using your oil @ 4 weeks and had a very healthy uncomplicated pregnancy! THANK YOU!!!
I do have a question..can I use this and still breastfeed? I want to keep my hormones balanced and ready to go if we try for baby #2. Are there any side effects or harm for the nursing baby? Thank you!!!

I Am Now The Mother Of A Beautiful, Healthy And Happy Baby Girl!
I had recently had a miscarriage and was pregnant and bleeding again when my mother had me contact Dr. Eckhart. I immediately started taking Progestelle. The bleeding didn't stop immediately, but it did stop. Dr. Eckhart was always available, he answered many questions and helped me through a very frightening time. I am now the mother of a beautiful, healthy and happy little girl.

I Am 17 Weeks Pregnant
Hi Dr Eckhart,
I just wanted to follow up and tell you that I did conceive and am 17 weeks pregnant...just about to start tapering off my progesterone. I had more than 4 miscarriages due to lack of progesterone. I would spot the week leading up to my period every month, and I could never figure out why. And I had short 25-26 day cycles. Finally after a little research and finding your site, I'm going to have a baby. I conceived the 2nd month being on the progesterone. The first month my spotting stopped completely and I knew it was going to work. And then the 2nd month I conceived! My husband was amazed! With all my miscarriages, I wouldn't show positive pregnancy until a week or more past my missed period...nothing...so I knew hormones were low. And I would spot the whole time, and then eventually within a few days or a week would just lose it. With this pregnancy...not a single drop of blood, and I showed positive day 21...I didn't know it was possible to see that early!
My OB, of course, didn't feel the progesterone did anything to conceive, but I insisted it did. This is my 2nd child. I had no issues the first time; I conceived immediately. After all the miscarriages this time, it was pretty clear something was up. She labeled it a "Luteal Phase Defect." Any thoughts on that? Seems like that's just a fancy way of saying progesterone deficiency. She tried to get me to switch to oral progesterone she would prescribe, but I told her I would just keep doing what I was doing. She also told me I could simply STOP taking the progesterone at week 12. I was so surprised to hear an OB say that...especially after what you have said regarding miscarriage. STOP? Not even a suggestion to taper? Well I obviously ignored her and the pregnancy is progressing wonderfully. I will continue to use the oil after my baby and beyond.
I want to thank you so much for everything you do. I'm so excited for this baby, and so amazed at how the progesterone worked. You are an amazing individual! Thanks for caring, and thanks for all the time and effort you put into your work! I hope other women out there don't settle for the health care we are given, and go searching for truth! It's worth it!

I Can’t Thank You Enough For Helping Me Bring Into This World A Healthy, Beautiful Baby Boy
Dear Dr. Eckhart,
I can't thank you enough for helping me bring into this world a healthy, beautiful baby boy. He is truly an amazing blessing!
After more than a year of trying to conceive, my doctor suggested the typical route for medical interventions. I refused and started researching. I suspected I had estrogen dominance and took a saliva test to confirm it. I then started using Progestelle.
Years prior, I'd switched to natural and organic products, but took it a step further after reading your information. I bought Nature Clean detergent. I changed shampoos and hand soap. I eliminated flax seed and other phytoestrogens.
Within 45 days, I was pregnant. I never expected such fast results.
Thank you for being such a strong advocate for women's health. The world needs more doctors like you.

Words cannot describe the joy of having a wonderful little boy. I'm so grateful to you and your research for helping make my dream of becoming a mother possible! Had I not discovered Progestelle, I would have gone the fertility doctor route. I'm thrilled to have avoided medical interventions. My body just needed progesterone to correct estrogen dominance and maintain a healthy pregnancy. I also followed your recommendations about laundry detergent, makeup, etc. My beautiful son is almost 17 months old. Thank you. Thank you. Thanks again.

Saved From Miscarriage
Thank you, you have wonderful information, and I will definitely follow it throughout my entire pregnancy! Here is a picture of our baby girl for your site that your progestelle and advice saved from miscarriage (of course I need to mention and I think I have not in previous emails to you that I should also give thanks to God because He is the ultimate giver of life)!
I told my sister about your product earlier, and she has been using it for a while now and her continuous bleeding has stopped and she feels much better! She says she plans on using it for the rest of her life! Thanks for such a wonderful product!

It Kept Me Pregnant And I Have A Wonderful Daughter Now
Previously suffered early term miscarriages. Tested progesterone at 17 or 18 days past ovulation and it was low, so I started using this product. It kept me pregnant and I have a wonderful daughter now! Used it through 15 or 16 weeks pregnant and dialed back over a week or two.

I Had An Excellent Pregnancy And Birth
Dear Dr Eckhart,
I am writing for two reasons. Firstly an overdue big Thank you! I contacted you mid 2012 in an emotional state, afraid of losing my pregnancy as I had a previous miscarriage with similar symptoms. You listened to me & talked me through my fears when I felt no other medical professional would or had. I did not want to be told one more time that it was just meant to be, when my body was failing me & exhibited all the signs of low progesterone. You were truly reassuring & I am very pleased to report that I followed your instructions & took the oil until the end of my pregnancy tapering off right at the end. I had an excellent pregnancy & birth. We now have a beautiful 1yr old daughter. She is wonderfully bright & perfect. I advised a friend who was also having troubles, of you & the progestelle oil. They contacted you & now they also have a new baby girl. So thank you so much!
The second reason I am writing was to ask for your advice in taking the oil while breastfeeding. We wanted to start trying for another baby soon. I have just found out today that we have conceived! So I will definitely need to place another order with you for the progesterone oil. Can you advise me on taking the oil & breastfeeding? Will this affect my supply? Thank you again, to Dr Eckhart and his team for always answering questions so quickly & for all you have done to help us.

I’m Living Proof That It Really Works!!
Dear Peter Eckhart,
I wanted to give you a little update.
I started following your infertility protocol in March of 2012. We conceived the end of September and I am now 23 weeks pregnant, our little baby girl is due June 22nd. She's developing well and everything looks great! I am so excited, we couldn't be happier!!! I have shared your information with many others and will continue to do so but surprisingly enough not everyone is willing to try it even though I'm living proof that it really works!!
Do you have any recommendations for after the baby is born?

Helped With Miscarriages
I suffered from miscarriages and infertility for two years before finding this product. I used Progestelle (always started on day 14 of my cycle and continued until I got my period) AND switched all my cosmetics, lotions, etc. like suggested and changed my diet. I truly believe it helped me carry my two subsequent pregnancies to full term (two boys...one in 2006 and another in 2008). After getting a + home pregnancy test I continued to use Progestelle all the way until well into my 2nd trimester. After many miscarriages I really think it was this product that did the trick. PS I used this product with my doctor's knowledge and supervision.
November 25, 2013
After not getting pregnant for 1 year. Two different doctors a cupboard full of supplements and ovulation test kits. nothing helped with my low progesterone. i was determine to find an answer. After continuous prayer and research i found Dr Eckhart. Progestelle and small life style changes ( changing our soap, makeup, etc.) did the trick! After two weeks we were pregnant! Dr. Eckhart was always available for free to consult with me over the phone! He answered emails promptly! We have a five month old beautiful baby. BTW I was 34 our third baby!

This Product Saved My Baby's Life
I want to recommend this wonderful product, almost two years ago it saved our baby girl's life! I had a miscarriage in late 2012, and in early 2013 I started taking the progestelle to straighten out my cycles and almost immediately became pregnant. When I started spotting one evening early in the pregnancy, I used more of the progestelle than I had been and immediately went to bed, feeling that I did not want to go through another ER visit and if I was miscarrying there would be really nothing they could do anyway. The next morning the bleeding had stopped and I felt better, but I made an appointment with my OB anyway. She knew nothing about the progesterone, but did say the baby was doing well. It did show there being some bleeding on the ultrasound which went away later in the pregnancy. This had happened with the pregnancy in 2012 as well - unfortunately I did not know about progestelle at that time and miscarried. Feeling that the progesterone was what had stopped the bleeding this time, I called Dr Eckhart and he explained how I would need to continue with the progesterone and wean off it at a certain time in the pregnancy. When I weaned off of it, I went too quickly, and started cramping, etc, so I called him and he recommended I stay on it for the duration of the pregnancy. Thanks to his advice and the progestelle, we had a healthy baby girl! Fast forward almost two years, I have not been using the progestelle, but my cycle was late. I took a pregnancy test and there was a very very faint line. I immediately started using progestelle because I was having cramping and lower back pain. A week later, the symptoms are now gone, and another pregnancy test shows a much darker line, so the baby is hopefully going to be OK! So, here we go again! We have been blessed, and we will do all we can to save and keep this little baby.

So after 8 months I decided to give my body a little help. I looked up this product and read the benefits. I had an IUI June 5, and about 8 days last IUI I started using this product and now I'm 4 weeks 3 days pregnant. I am getting blood work done tomorrow and will ask my doctor if I should continue to use this product. I had tried so many other things and nothing worked. I thank God and praying for a healthy pregnancy

I Am Now Pregnant!
This product is a godsend! Not only am I acne free, I am also pregnant!!! We have been trying to conceive since 2007! I have even tried Clomid and herbs. Nothing worked. I charted my cycles for a year and a half. I could see that I was ovulating. After being my own health advocate, I came across progesterone deficiency information which eventually led me to this product and their website. I went down to the health food store to see if I can find a product comparable and they were right there were other ingredients listed in the natural progesterone cream. so I bought this product and used it right after ovulation and I'm pregnant!!!! I also had cystic acne which started during my first pregnancy 10 years ago and it never went away until I started taking this product. when not on birth control pills I have painful periods too once I deliver and my periods resume I will continue to take this and let you know if it helped with those painful periods as well. I highly recommend this product!!

Progestelle Progesterone Oil Is A Fabulous Product!
This product is fabulous! My wife had used other products before, including prescriptions, when she found this. Shipping is fast. The booklet is a" must have" and answered all our questions completely and concisely. My wife has taken it without any side effects and has finally enjoyed normal cycles and no more heavy periods. My wife and I had tried unsuccessfully for four years to have a baby and even after many trips to the doctor and many other synthetic products got nowhere. A few months after getting on Progestelle she got pregnant and we had a completely healthy, happy baby boy just 2 months before my wife turned 43 years old. Our little boy just celebrated his third birthday and is a picture of health. Great product, we love it!

I Have A Healthy Baby Boy
I had lost 2 babies then found I was pregnant again. I immediately started in this and stayed on it for 16 weeks. They tested my progesterone levels at 8 weeks and they were double normal range. I went on to have a beautiful healthy baby boy. I also took this after giving birth and it helped with my plummeting hormones. It does work, my 15 month old is living proof.
