iHerb Customer Reviews
Experiment with the dosage to find what works best for you. For me it's 1/4 tsp in morning, 1/2 tsp at night. The larger amount at night helps me sleep. May, 2011 - I am updating my review to note that, for some women, the progesterone builds up in the fat tissue and then is released over time. This leads to having an excess of progesterone, which has side effects of headache, strong tension in body, high BP, bad insomnia, anxiety, because the excess progesterone competes with cortisol for receptors so the body compensates by producing more and more cortisol. So rather than feeling mellowed out like I did the first several months of usage, I ended up feeling very stressed and wired. I am off the cream now and hoping my hormones will stabilize.
One has to be careful because some brands of natural progesterone cream have propylene glycol, which has some toxicity to the liver and is unnecessary in skin care products (or food for that matter--check out the label on baker's coconut bought at the grocery store). I have been using this brand for a number of years, and although it's hard to tell conclusively cause-wise, I do know that my bone density has slowly but steadily been growing even without prescriptions such as Fosamax during the many years I have used progesterone cream (of course I supplement calcium and vit D as well).

Excellent for Menopausal transition
Posted by AIM-FOR-GOOD-HEALTH on Mar 15, 2016
After reading that many menopausal women have excessive estrogen and need progesterone to balance things out, I tried this product. Hot flushes, exhaustion, weight gain, depression and anxiety disappeared for a while as the Progresterone in this cream counteracted the surges of estrogen through my body. However as my ovaries finally crashed and produced NO estrogen - this can happen quite soon into the process and it can be difficult to know when! - I needed another solution. I recently started on the herb Schizandra to support my adrenal glands which have to take over the work of producing estrogen. And my what a difference. Long standing fatigue, brain fog and insomnia completely wiped out. This Progresterone product is for short term use only while you are in the estrogen dominant stage of menopause. I recommend taking the herb Schizandra along with this product so you are supporting your adrenal glands which need to ultimately take over making estrogen. There will be a point at which you can drop the progesterone as your ovaries completely wind down. Schizandra is a powerful Chinese herb recommended for menopausal symptoms including hot flushes. Don't worry about the product warning on this Progesterone cream...I contacted the manufacturer who said they are legally obligated due to research connected with synthetic progesterone to state its so called 'risks'. This natural progesterone (different chemical structure) has no research to prove that it has any risks. Unfortunately, Customs in New Zealand no longer allow this product in.

I used this for three days and i could taste the chemical literally. It was oozing from my pores and i had bad headaches and muscle spasms. All that and i took the recommended dose. Apparently our bodies dont breakdown the synthetic hormones that well. Seek out a naturopath before buying or messing with these types of synthetic hormones.
Great for painful periods!!

It's been a couple of months and all I can say is that I saw a change immediately. I suffer from severe cramps during my periods which is why I ordered this cream. I followed the instructions by putting1/2 of a teaspoon on my tummy everyday 2 weeks before my period. It works!! No more severe cramps, much lighter flow. I am in heaven.
