We get that question a lot. but trust us, there's nothing weird or hard about it. Just massage a dime-size dollop of cream into your skin twice daily. Try your wrists, arms, thighs, tummy - whatever you like.

I just read this on Dr. Mercola's site: Ideally, progesterone cream should NOT be applied to your skin. Instead use mucous epithelial membranes of your labia or rectum. Absorption through these membranes is more complete than through skin, and hormones absorbed through vaginal membranes enter the same pelvic plexus of veins that your ovaries normally empty into. If you apply the cream to your mucous epithelial membranes that line your uterus and vagina you obtain a virtually ideal administration system. Not only is absorption through these membranes more complete than through your skin, but hormones absorbed through your vaginal membranes enter the very same pelvic plexus of veins that your ovaries normally empty into. From here the hormones are carried to your heart and lungs and distributed to your tissues just as if your ovary had actually produced them.

I totally recommend Emerita's Pro-Gest - and it really does seem to work. The only thing that keeps me from buying it again is that NOW makes a product that's nearly the same, but a bit stronger, and a bit cheaper by the ounce. Regardless of what you decide to buy, if you buy a natural progesterone cream, make sure it's USP grade progesterone and not just wild yam cream. USP progesterone is processed from wild yam, but unprocessed wild yam won't work the same way, so make sure you see USP progesterone in the ingredients.
£50+ if you live in the UK

ordered this from the UK and was slapped with a hidden £20 additional charge on the day of delivery. I Herb charged me for the product plus p&p then text me a few days later saying there was a customs and duties charge of £20. My progesterone was held at the airport and was not released until i paid. So total cost was £50+ have since found cheaper in Ireland.
balance to health

This is proving very helpful after just a month. Very expensive with the tax and everything. I would like to find a cheaper option of this healthy cream. May be the law will change soon to allow purchase in the UK.
Changed my life!

I have been using Pro-Gest for a few months now and all I can say is wow! This product completely changed my life. I have more energy, I'm losing belly fat and my libido is back! If you are low on progesterone, you should seriously consider purchasing this product. And fast shipping! Thanks, iHerb!

I have used this cream off and on over the years to balance hormones and have had positive experience. I learned about this after reading books by Dr. John Lee. "What Your Doctor May not tell you about Perimenopause".
This Product Really Works

My wife uses this product 3 weeks on, 1 week off, for menopausal symptoms. Really works to balance hormones, emotions, and practically eliminates hot flashes. Thank you - Thank you - Thank you!!
